Home prices have risen to as much as $300,000. Several factors like location and materials are to be blamed for this drastic increase. This is why many consider owning a house as a luxury.
Luckily, there are many available alternatives for those hoping they can spend less. An example of which are shipping containers. A shipping container will run you around $1,800–$5,000 each.
