When you get to that age where you’re finally starting a family, suddenly the rented apartment you’re in starts to look awfully small. Not only will the baby needs his or her own room, but the wave after wave of things it will need to live a comfortable life while so small and fragile will keep growing. There are no two ways about it; you need to find a bigger place. But the housing market is not so kind to new families unless you’re willing to take out an obscenely large loan, which will have to locked to the house and joined at the hip, perhaps for decades. There are options on the market, for homes that won’t rip open your wallet and swallow your credit card whole. They will, of course, be alternative options and not quite what the traditional home looks like, but for the affordable price, you can get bang for your buck.
Urban modern housing
If you work in the city, you’d be surprised at the newest schemes to make mass produced homes that are actually quite affordable. Often homes that have been constructed using basic materials, and the architecture itself being quite boxy and rigid, the large straight and rectangular rooms with few walls provide a great alternative to the traditional home for growing families. They are usually on the outskirts of the city, or perhaps in the outer ring of the central city area. They are urban but take up little room. Don’t expect any driveways or places to park your car though, as the space is purely therefore for cars going to and from the street. Creative communities live in these areas, whereby the society is very close knit, and tips and tricks are regularly shared out to newcomers. The homes are almost experimental, and companies will give you special deals if you sign up to be surveyors so that future urban homes can be improved.
You can also choose what your home will look like, completely with manufactured homes. Purely on a one floor style, the interior, however, can be just as modern and inviting as any home around the world. The best part is it’s more than affordable and gives plenty of space for small children as two adults. Choose from single wide homes if you’re not planning on having more than one child for the foreseeable future, or perhaps a double wide home if you’re planning on having a dog move in with you as well. Special home deals are also on the cards giving options to save money in multiple areas. The home itself can be delivered straight to your location, so you actually don’t have to move from a neighborhood which you have your heart set on.
Affordable homes for growing families are a priority for many governments around the world, but so far the traditional home route has not yet become cheaper. Customizable and manufactured homes may only cost a few tens of thousands to get the same interior quality as any other home on the market.
