Tiny House Nation: A tv show, a curiosity, a movement. This "less is more" mentality is well suited for Martha's Vineyard, especially when it comes to the second home market. When representing buyers, I have heard the utterance "We just want to find a little cottage by the sea..." just as often as I hear, "We're really not looking for a TROPHY house". (tv show link)
Despite what HGTV may suggest...The majority of folks looking for a second home on Martha's Vineyard are not interested in a 6,000 square foot Gambrel with carriage house, pool and tennis courts. Most island buyers simply want a low maintenance, charming space with an outdoor shower that's close to the beach or town. The good news is that these beachy cottages can be found. The better news is that they are typically under $500,000. Check out my Top Three Tiny House Picks for Martha's Vineyard.
It's January and our local real estate market is still in full swing. My first client showings of the year were today! We visited all three of these houses. If you're interested in rental income, you'd be shocked at how well these adorable abodes do as weekly vacation rentals. I love feedback and questions - email me with both!
