Charlotte residents fighting to make tiny homes illegal

People who live nearby have complained to the City Council that the tiny houses don’t fit in with the surrounding community, and could drive down property values.

“It is an extremely niche product being put in the wrong place at the wrong time without any vetting,” neighbor Robert Wilson told the council, adding that a real estate company told them that tiny houses could drop their property values by as much as 30 percent.

“These type houses do not belong in Coulwood Hills … We formally request that the City halt his expansion into our neighborhood.”
