5 Modular Homes Under 150k: A Guide To Finding The Right Home For You

5 Modular Homes Under 150k: A Guide To Finding The Right Home For You

The high cost of housing in Australia today can make the dream of owning a home feel almost impossible. The financial stress of a large mortgage held over 30 years and compounded by interest rate insecurity (in the 1990s we had 17% interest!) can make the issue seem even more daunting. Affordability of housing is key to this dilemma and one solution can be modular homes under 150k.

While price point is a key driver for many seeking to own a home, there are other considerations that potential buyers are also thinking about. Like reducing the physical and carbon footprint of a dwelling, or the virtues of simplicity and minimalism. Is the building eco-friendly, economical to run and built along sustainability guidelines? Can it be completely off-grid, on-grid or a hybrid? Is it portable, modular or stackable? Can it be used as a small extension to an existing dwelling or will it be a stand alone residence?

The tiny home concept has become increasingly popular amongst a wide demographic and for various reasons – affordability, mobility and simplicity of living to name a few. There are books, websites and TV shows dedicated to designing, building and showcasing the best tiny home ideas around. There is, however, also a downside to these beautiful structures – their cost.

Unless you have the skill set to build one yourself, the average tiny house on wheels can cost you $100-$200k. Why is it so expensive? They are often bespoke in design, tailored to your specific needs; tend to be resource demanding with a lot of timber and glass used; and are very heavy in weight needing specially engineered trailers to carry the load.

Panstellar Homes is the place to look for more innovative and economical options, and their top 5 modular homes under 150k is the best place to start dreaming. While some people are looking for ways to get into their first home, others may be looking for more affordable ways to add a little extra room to their current arrangements with a studio or office. You might be considering a granny flat for family or as a rental proposition. Or you may long for a closer connection to nature with a bush retreat or semi-permanent dwelling. Whatever your needs, Panstellar Homes will probably have the answer for you.
