Or simply catering to a sense of guilt? Eventually, we’ll know:
For many real estate agents trying to sell a house, bigger is better. People want a bigger yard, bigger kitchen and a bigger bedroom. But now one developer in Southeast Portland hopes that “smaller is better” will pay off.
A new development of 29 “micro-homes” is popping up at SE 43rd Avenue and Division Street. A micro-home is a new home, but miniaturized. In some cases, the entire place is right around 360 square feet.
Go and read (and watch the included video).
$120k for 360 square feet is rather pricey (OK, that is an understatement). If Portland were not so concerned about sprawl, the city wouldn’t be addressing an apparent housing shortage in this manner.
