Do you mean the new version of 'tiny houses' or just a small house.

I remember writing a post where me & my purse couldn't turn around in a kitchen in a house I showed.  Tops 600 sq feet & I wrote about the minimum size for getting a mortgage.

I have sold a few dog houses, but no tiny people houses.

No staging was needed.

Sarasota used to have a quaint community of little people from the Ringling Bros. Circus. They are all gone now. So, no; never sold a little house.

We have micro-condos (approx 300 square feet) in my area that have been built over the past few years.  Is your "tiny house" bigger or smaller than that size?

The logistics of living in those tiny houses has me baffled.  Where do they store the extra roll of toilet paper.  I once saw a picture with the toilet next to the kitche.  Ick!

What's the definition of tiny?  I have sold condos that are 700 square feet and less.

I represented a bank-owned property many years ago where the official public records square footage was 442.   It was quite the memorable sale.

Not those that they show on TV. Last time I sold something really small was a studio apartment in NYC... about 500 square feet... and that was 20+ years ago.

1. Paint the walls in light colours that are pretty.  While that is subjective, you can go for understated elegance, like white trim and a soft sage green on the walls.

2. Add beauty on the walls:  good art in the right size, shape, colour(s) and not too much of it.  Draw the eye but make it seem like the house is beautiful, don't make it about the art.  (You need the right kind of eye to do this.)

3. Many stagers like to remove the curtains, but sometimes they need to remain or better ones be put up, especially if they're truly beautiful and airy, like good quality lace.

4. Use minimal furniture and place it with skill.  For example, two arm chairs placed under a window with a small table between them can seem very warm and inviting.  Turn them a little so they seem to engage each other.  The rest of the room can be empty.

5. Have a very clean house.

This is what comes to mind immediately, but pictures of the home would or could change the suggestions.
