Getting on the property ladder in Melbourne just got a tiny bit easier.

Two cut-price homes will be up for auction in the city later this month, but there is a catch – they're not very big.

Father-son team Paul and Indi Hangan both have years of experience in construction but set up their business, Tiny Homes Australia, earlier this year.

Now, they will be putting two of their compact properties under the hammer for the first time.

Paul Hangan said that the tiny homes have become quite popular for short-stays – and are on offer on Airbnb for $200 per night.

They are also an attractive option for parents who might need extra space for an older child or those who may want an office space at home.

'Tiny house are interesting because they are sort of a house, sort of a caravan, sort of moveable, and they're definitely cheap,' he told Domain.

'There's lots of people that are interested in them – from a real estate point of view and from a business point of view.'

After noticing their open inspections attracted a lot of interest, they decided to offer two models, fully-furnished, at auction.

While their smaller model (6-7m long) typically retails for $59,000 and larger model, with a pitched roof and loft bedroom, costs $79,000, buyers could get either for far less when they go under the hammer on November 18.

If the auction goes well, Mr Hangan said they would consider selling more that way.

Usually, the company provides customers with the chance to customise their home at the design, construction and finishing stages.

The auction is taking place at 12pm on November 18 at Tiny Homes Australia's headquarters at 8/36 New Street in Ringwood.
