What It's About:

As development costs explode, smaller houses and townhomes on super-narrow lots have emerged—often demanding prices as high as $450 per square-foot. And, it isn’t just the Millennials buying these small homes; it is Gen Xs and Baby Boomers, too. In this session, learn who these buyers are, why smaller spaces are growing in popularity and see examples of cutting-edge micro-products from around the country. Hear how one builder, in order to meet a workforce zoning requirement, cut his townhome plans in half to 12 feet wide—a first for the market— and then sold out in a week.

What You'll Learn:

  • Gain insight into why small homes, townhomes and narrow lots are becoming more popular.
  • Determine what product to build and how to price it.
  • Hear and learn insights from narrow lot and micro-product success stories.
  • Take away tips from a builder of a 12-foot townhome product that sold out in one week.
