As the housing market gets more and more competitive , prospective home buyers seeking affordable housing are having to make sacrifices. For some, it means cutting square footage and embracing a more minimalist lifestyle.

The tiny home trend emerged in 2008 when the subprime mortgage crisis took hold and many homeowners were forced to downsize. Since then, the hype has continued with the rise of television shows like HGTV’s ‘Tiny House Hunters’. There have even been zoning laws approved allowing construction of tiny-home-only communities like this one in Rockledge, Florida .

To find the most desirable tiny homes around the country, we looked at actively listed single-family homes under 600 square feet in more than 80 markets, and used Redfin favorites to determine desirability. Riverside, CA has the most tiny homes on the market, with 153 currently listed, followed by Phoenix (99), New York (86), Los Angeles (70) and Tampa (55). But the most desired tiny home in the U.S. resides in another competitive market–Seattle . The 580-square-foot home in the South Park neighborhood of Seattle has been on the market for just five days and already has 68 favorites.
