Can't afford buying and hate renting? Tiny houses may be the answer for you
As part of generation rent, I can't get my head round the fact that it may take me years of saving to have the money for a deposit on a nice piece of property which I will call home. Honestly speaking, the idea of then tie myself to a mortgage for 30-35 years doesn't appeal me either. Even worse, knowing that, each month £1,600 of my and my flatmate money go to pay my landlord's mortgage (yes, exactly), makes me want to move in a free of charge cave somewhere in Costa Rica and forget about London forever.
Lately I have been quite obsessed with finding a way that would fit with the budget of a mid-twenty person (right after university and perhaps at their first job), that could give you the benefit of living rent-free and still not be tied to a place and a mortgage for the next decades. By doing a few searches on the Internet I came across "tiny house movement" , a fenomena that could be the answer to high rental costs and unoffordable housing for the young people. And with raising housing prices and skyrocketing rents, this movement could really help generation rent get on the property ladder sooner than expected.
It would be wrong to call them "a caravan that looks like a house", and they are not any similar to a modern RV either. A tiny house is something more. They set to empower you with a new life, with better carbon footprint, cheaper living costs and way more freedom that most traditional homes would give you.
