These 10 Tiny Homes Could Be a Steal

5021 Virginia Dare, Kitty Hawk NC

By Melissa Allison

Small homes have gotten so hot, thieves are lifting them.

In recent months, bandits have made off with a 200 square-foot cabin in Canada's Yukon woods and a tiny house in Texas. The latter was recovered, and its owner now recommends a boot clamp and a hitch lock for other owners of tiny homes.

The home above, on North Carolina's Outer Banks, probably isn't going anywhere unless Mother Nature is involved. The 560-square foot house at 5021 Virginia Dare Trail North in Kitty Hawk is for sale for $250,000. The two-bedroom, one-bath cottage sits on new pilings and has a wide front deck.
