There seems to be a trend developing where people are choosing smaller houses and condos. There are lots of small houses in Daytona Beach and surrounding areas. In Ormond Beach, Ormond by the Sea and Daytona Beach, there are a lot of bungalow type houses that are ideal for people looking for a great location smaller home.
Mint.com published an article last week talking about the trend to smaller homes. See – The Tiny House – Save Big By Living Small. In the article, they give four reasons for people moving to smaller or tiny houses:
- Building or purchase cost reductions
- Energy Efficiency
- Less Hoarding
- Maintenance economy
These are all great reasons, but I think one is missing – the chance to live in the area of your dreams. Do you see yourself waking up in the morning and walking on a beautiful beach? You can do that for under $125,000 in the Daytona Beach area. That’s pretty amazing when compared to other areas of the country.
Prices on the mainland are even lower and it’s still just a short drive to the beach. This area is great for boating and golf, tennis and other sports. It really is sun and fun. Buying small is economical. It conserves capital and retirement funds and allows you to live better on less. Maybe it’s worth thinking about.
