Craving your own space? Make the perfect move to a mini home

If you’re living in an apartment right now, no doubt you are very much aware of how little control you have of the cleanliness of the public spaces that you are forced to share with your neighbours. As you check your mail at the communal mailboxes, do your laundry, and press those elevator buttons, you have to hope that everyone in your building is following cleanliness protocols and doing what they can to keep things safe for their neighbours, but there’s no way of being sure that they aren’t coughing and sneezing over everything. This is especially scary for those with compromised immune systems, whether there’s a pandemic or not. Perhaps it is time you made a move that puts you in control of the cleanliness and hygiene of every part of your home.

When you buy a brand new Kent mini home, you are in complete control of who does what on the surfaces that are inside. You’ve got your own laundry, you’re no longer sharing an entryway with who knows who and their friends, and whatever delivery person they’ve let in. There’s a heightened sense of security and peace of mind that you just can’t get with apartment living – especially in these challenging times. 

With interest rates the lowest that they’ve been in years, this is the most cost-effective time to purchase a new mini home. Right now, Havill’s can get you into a beautiful new mini home starting around $700 a month – likely way less than you’re paying in rent in the HRM. These are trying times, for sure, but realtors and mortgage companies are commenting that they may provide opportunities for those looking to buy a home. 

Moving into a new mini home could also give you way more space than you’re living in now, and a small yard of your own so that your kids can play outside (or so that you can get a little fresh air and not feel cooped up all the time). Our spacious mini homes offer a number of different floor plans, with as many as three bedrooms and two bathrooms – the MacLean, for example, offers just under 1,200 sq ft of living space, which should stop families from feeling like they’re living on top of each other! Plus, depending on the land lease community that you choose to make your home in, the lot that your home sits on could offer a fair bit of space to hang out in, and some back on to greens paces too and have playgrounds (for times when we don’t all have to stay the blazes home!). 

With a mini home, home ownership is more attainable than most people realize, and because all new Kent mini homes are super energy efficient, the cost of operating & maintaining them is low. Taking the step to home ownership offers many benefits, and the chance to start building equity and do something more worthwhile with your hard-earned money.
