Trend: Luxury Resorts Offering Tiny Homes

June 11, 2017 -

Real estate communities continue to evolve sales and marketing tools to provide an exceptional first look to prospective owners.

A trend that is emerging in these three specific properties—Snake River Sporting Club (Jackson Hole), Costa Palmas (Los Cabos), and Mountainside at Northstar (Lake Tahoe)—are taking a different approach to providing a true reality experience through offering tiny homes on site.

In the case of Snake River Sporting Club, non-owners/guests can opt to rent the Tiny Homes on a nightly basis, starting at $525. The sales team will also host strong sales prospects in the tiny homes (in addition to cabins), to give them a taste of the full club experience.

At Costa Palmas, the sales/marketing team are hosting sales prospects in the tiny home cabanas on a weekly basis. Interest has been incredibly strong and the team is offering a full 1-2 day itinerary which includes a wide range of adventures and opportunities to see, feel, taste and experience everything the thousand-acre resort and surroundings can offer.

At Mountainside, current owners are able to use the Rendezvous Cabins as an amenity (whether for a yoga session or to house extra guests, etc.). They are also used for sales prospects to stay overnight (they have a full kitchen, etc.).

The uses are somewhat different across the properties, however the main trend is that the developers have invested in these tiny homes as a tool to drive sales interest.

Snake River Sporting Club is a four-season residential community and private club offering an authentic Jackson Hole experience. Luxury real estate is complemented by world-class golf on a Tom Weiskopf-designed championship course, fly-fishing along the famed Snake River, hiking trails, equestrian facilities, archery, boating, mountain biking and more. In the winter, residents and club members enjoy snowshoeing, ice skating, cross country skiing, heli-skiing, as well as private Après ski and valet service at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
