Tiny Houses: Pay More For Less!

Interesting read from an article in Forbes.

Apartment hunters in the District of Columbia may be interested to learn that they can rent the smallest house in Washington — a 252-square-foot studio — for $1400. That’s a little more than $66 per square foot, which exceeds Manhattan’s average rental price per square foot which, at last check, was $53 and change.

Although 252 square feet may not seem large enough for a hat rack and a full-sized mattress, it’s downright luxurious compared to the so-called smallest apartments elsewhere in the world. In Manhattan, a 100-square-foot broom closet on the Upper West Side goes for a cool $1,100 (or $132 per square foot); in London, a 90-square-foot flat (overlooking Harrods) is going for £400 pounds per week (roughly $600); and in Tokyo, so-called “coffin” apartments go anywhere between $500 and $1,000 per month for 50 to 75 square feet of space.
