Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly is a tiny home?

Tiny homes are residential units – typically under 400 square feet – that share similar traits with RVs and mobile homes. However, there are several big differences:

  • Tiny homes can be designed to be mobile, or can be converted for a stationary setting, provided there are the necessary utility hookups.
  • Tiny homes are highly customizable, and many of the manufacturers we work with are happy to install custom parts, furnishings, and even entire room spaces to fit your needs and budget.
  • Many tiny home owners choose to rent out their Tiny Home, providing an extra source of income with less of the upkeep and maintenance required on traditional rental units.

Will I need a mortgage to own a tiny home?

  • A tiny home loan from Liberty Bank is not considered to be a mortgage. There is no lien involved and the bank will retain the title to the tiny home until the loan is paid off in full.

Are tiny homes built to last?

  • Yes, tiny homes on wheels are built to be solid and sturdy! High-quality materials and building techniques are used when constructing a tiny home. They are much more durable than a typical RV and are built to last. Although they are mobile, when built on a foundation, they are as solid as a traditional home.

Interest rates will vary depending on a variety of factors including an applicant’s credit history and income. Initial rates can range anywhere between 6.0% and 10.5%. Contact a loan officer at Liberty Bank at 801-363-LEND(5363) to learn more.
