Normally when you buy a house, the only person that profits is your realtor and the seller (as long as they bought the place in 1975). But thanks to an altruistic auction from Re/Max, charity just benefited from a new tiny home sale. The real estate company recently partnered with Henry Ford College to build an adorable micro home that sold this weekend, with the proceeds going directly to children’s hospitals.
The Tiny Home for Tiny Tots project was designed to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a group of 170 hospitals in North America that treat kids with diabetes, cancer, and other illnesses. Re/Max’s basic idea was to design and build a tiny home from scratch, put it on the market, and sell it to the highest bidder during a two-day online sale. The final sum would go to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, with Re/Max footing the construction bill.
The auction went live last week on Thursday, July 26, closing just before midnight the following Saturday, July 28. A user by the name of Jamie1970 claimed the home with a winning bid of $47,205.
