While home buyers have sought large one and two-story traditional homes for years, a new trend is emerging on the market: tiny houses. These houses, sometimes as small as 500 square feet, have developed a following, but it takes more than minimal space to catch a buyer’s eye. The DiMora Team are real estate experts in the Novi and Northville neighborhoods and we know that while many home buyers are looking to downsize into smaller homes, they don’t want to downsize their lifestyle. Buyers are attracted to tiny houses that contain space-saving features that allow the homeowner to store more than one would think. To make your small house more appealing to buyers consider a kitchen table that folds flat against a wall. This will free up much needed floor space. Built-in bookshelves can hold more than just books, giving buyers more storage options. One of the biggest draws to tiny houses is tiny utility bills. If your home already has energy-efficient features, ask your listing agent to include the details and to point them out to potential buyers during the walk-through.
