Everyone knows you're the ambitious frontrunner of the zodiac, Aries. You like to work hard and remind everyone of just how successful you are.

"A baller contemporary new-build is the perfect way for Aries to show off their hard work and efforts," Stardust says. And since these homes are built with all the newest features, you can know for sure you're getting your money's worth.
Taurus is one of the most choosey signs of the zodiac. You like what you like, and it's difficult to get you to change your mind. You're a creature of comfort who needs time and space away from the hustle and bustle to recharge your batteries. "A Tudor is the perfect match for Taurus because it allows them to ground themselves, which will prepare them for any obstacle at hand," says Stardust. Not to mention, your love of aesthetics and art draws you to older architectural styles. With their pitched roofs, decorative half-timbering, and stained glass windows, these homes are the ideal mix of comfort and whimsy.

This pint-sized residence gives you just the right amount of space to store your belongings while you venture out into the world. And with the right amount of planning, you can add some wheels and a trailer hitch and bring your home on the road with you.
