Frequently Asked Questions about Tiny Homes
Q: Where is land available?
We have three full-time real estate brokers on staff that find land anywhere in central Texas. If you’re interested in a modular or manufactured community, Village Tiny Homes of Austin has one in Bastrop County called Forister Ranch with beautiful one-acre lots. Another mobile home community is called Great Hills. They’re in the process of building a community in Manor, too.
Q: Do I have to buy land when I buy my new modular, mobile, or manufactured home?
No, you do not have to buy land with your home. Because we have real estate brokers on site, we can find you the land if you need it. It’s not required to buy land when you buy at Village Tiny Homes of Austin. It’s your decision.
Q: How soon can I move in?
Is seven days or less fast enough? How fast we can deliver your home depends on how fast you want to move, the weather, and financing. We have seen people buy, close, and move in as little as four days.
Q: Is a down payment required?
It’s different for each individual or family. We offer many financing options. Most lenders require a minimum down payment of five percent, but we have down payments starting at zero down on up depending on which loan program we can get you approved for.

Q: I have a low credit score. Do I have any financing options?
You are more than just a credit score. Our experience has taught us that unfortunate circumstances can happen to anyone, so we offer many financing options to our customers. In addition to traditional financing, we also offer in-house financing (2nd chance financing). We take into consideration your job, rent history, and reasonable down payment to get you qualified.
