The housing market has been crazy over the past couple of years and it doesn't seem like it'll be calming down in the near future. This means that houses will continue to sell rapidly and for crazy prices, making it hard for first-time buyers or those who can’t pay in cash to actually have their offer accepted.

You'd think that the best solution would be to rent in the current state of the housing market, but even that isn't a great option. Rent is being raised all over the country. The average cost of rent in the U.S. is estimated to reach $2,000 for a one-bedroom apartment by the end of the summer. This means that for many people, it would be more cost-effective to buy a house even though that has all of its own struggles attached to it.

This leads many people to look for other cost-effective housing alternatives. What used to be a unique trend that only a select few individuals practically considered as a type of housing has become a realistic option for many. Tiny houses are homes that are about the size of a small apartment and designed to be as efficient and compact as possible. They can also be extremely cost-effective compared to other housing options.

I came across a business on TikTok that's run out of Austin, Texas and makes stunning tiny homes. Creative Living Solutions makes houses that are well-crafted and have a variety of designs to fit whatever lifestyle and aesthetic you prefer. You would need to contact them directly to get an exact quote on one of their tiny homes, but most of their models will run you around $100,000.

While many think that is a great price for the homes being offered, others think it's way too much. If you look at the comments on Creative Living Solutions’ TikToks, you'll find a large number of comments shaming the company for their prices and claiming that they could purchase a 3-bed, 2-bath 1,300 square foot home for the same price where they live.

I think it's amazing if you can purchase a house as nice as these tiny homes that are three times the size where you live, but that just isn't an option for everyone. Some people don't want to live in the small towns where those kinds of prices would be found. Many people need to live in or near larger cities for work, and one of these tiny homes would be the most affordable option for them.

Either way, you're welcome to form your own opinion if you think these tiny homes are worth their price. Keep scrolling to see some of the homes Creative Living Solutions has to offer.
