Housing affordability issue is crucial to citizens in Malaysia, particularly for the area of Kuala Lumpur. The constant increase in housing price which is unproportionate to the increase in household income have shattered the dream of citizens to own a house in city centre. With this concern, a new resolution of Tiny Home is proposed to resolve the issue. This study aims to investigate the expectation and acceptance for Tiny Home among citizens in Kuala Lumpur area. The primary data collection has adopted both questionnaire survey as well as semi structure interview with professionals from property industry. Convenience sampling was selected as method of distribution for sampling since this is an exploratory study. Questionnaire surveys were completed by total of 96 respondents and 4 professionals from property industry were interviewed. The overall finding revealed a minor expectation and minor acceptance of the public in Kuala Lumpur on Tiny Home and there is no significant different between expectation and acceptance. This implies that with the expectation fulfilled by the study, the acceptance would improve as well. Further comparison on the demographic variables of respondents to the expectation and acceptance of Tiny Home were made to determine on the significant effect to the level of expectation and acceptance. The result revealed the significant correlation between age and the expectation and significant difference in the respondents’ type of property residing for the expectation on Tiny Home. ANOVA also presented that household income level, marital status, number of children, whether both spouses are working, employment status have significant effect on the expectation of Tiny Home. The only exception would be number of occupants for the expectation of Tiny Home, in which it has resulted to no significant difference. Contrarily, the variables on acceptance of Tiny Home are all insignificant. The findings of this study will contribute as the fundamental guideline for the government, developers as well as future researchers. Limitations on this research include time and cost constraint and insufficient coverage from the public as well as property industry professionals.
