Tiny houses in Calgary, Alberta are quite the trend, as current residents choose to move away from the typical single-family properties. Instead, they are turning to something smaller, simpler, and of course – cheaper. Calgarians are finding joy in tiny homes of all types and design-styles (and even venturing across the province of Alberta to find other tiny home options).

Tiny homes are small, convenient and practical. You can move them to any location that allows it, you don’t have to spend hours maintaining them. Everything is at the reach of a hand and utility bills are as low as they can be. When you put it like that, who wouldn’t want to live in one?

Finding the perfect tiny house isn’t as simple as it sounds. You have to keep track of the local MLS and what is listed daily, which can be difficult for some potential buyers. That’s why in this list we’ve ranked the best tiny homes in Calgary you can buy in 2020.
