The best tiny homes for sale in Ontario

tiny homes ontario

For many, the idea of settling down and creating a home base in Canada’s most populous province of Ontario is little more than a dream. Housing costs are high in most of the bigger cities in Ontario, with the average single-family home selling for almost $417,000 in the Niagara Region, just under $475,000 in the Barrie district, and almost $801,000 in the Greater Toronto Area. Cost is just one reason why people are looking for tiny homes for sale in Ontario.

Despite the high prices, people continue to flock to Ontario. As of 2019, 14.57 million people live in the booming province. In fact, the country’s five fastest-growing cities are all located in Ontario:

  1. Peterborough, Ontario
  2. KitchenerCambridgeWaterloo
  3. OttawaGatineau
  4. Windsor
  5. London

But housing affordability in this province is almost non-existent, particularly in the larger cities of Toronto, Markham and Barrie.

One possible solution is to buy and live in a tiny home. Tiny houses have started to fill out that gap and became an affordable way of living for many. If you’ve ever thought about buying your own tiny home in Ontario, right now may be the perfect chance for you to do that. The market for tiny homes is plentiful, versatile and extremely affordable, particularly when compared to their traditional single-family home counterparts.

Here are the best tiny houses currently up for sale in Ontario.
