I'm sure you've seen the HGTV show Tiny House Hunters. If that has sparked your interest in down-sizing to a compact home, there is one available right here on the SouthCoast.

I spoke to Laura, the realtor. She was very nice, cordial and informative.  She did tell me some things you may consider a downside. The "house" has no indoor plumbing. There also are no wheels like most of the new tiny houses have. It us currently used for storage by some of the neighbors.

However, this is a piece of real estate in an area where the neighboring beach homes are valued at many hundreds of thousands of dollars. The street and the beaches are very private.

The asking price: $250,000. The realtor did say this price is negotiable. The building itself may not be perfect, but the area certainly is, especially during summer months.
