Tiny Homes, Take The Triangle!
In a unanimous vote, the Raleigh city council approved the use of tiny homes in the city limits. Mayor Baldwin apparently has been pushing for this project for several years to help with affordable housing in the area.
With this new approval, things can change big time for affordable housing. The zoning change means the homes, which can be no larger than 600 square feet, can help address the affordable housing crisis.
Average homes sales in the Triangle to date have been on the rise ranging from the high $300,000's to $500,000 plus. A tiny home, depending on the location and package could be around $120,000!- A much better cost alternative.
This will go into effect in 90 days.
