As home prices continue their upward climb and rents worthy of Manhattan keep right on scaring everyone, it gets pretty tempting to squeeze oneself into the smallest possible box. Miniature houses, some of which could pass for an Architect Barbie starter home, are few and far between (though we'll certainly keep stalking them). So how miniature does SF's housing market go? Tiny apartments have certainly gained a (micro!) share of ground in San Francisco's rental market, but teensy condos are still pretty much found at Cubix and in some of the more pint-size offerings at the Infinity (though one unit at Vida made our list). With help from PropertyShark and Point2Homes, we've rounded up the 10 smallest homes currently on the market.
The most petite is a 282-square-footer at Cubix; the largest, a 600-square-foot two-bedroom cottage in Noe roomy enough to fit two Cubix homes and then some, which isn't saying a whole lot. As can happen when spaces shrink, the price per square foot shoots up, piling financial contortions on top of spatial ones and blocking the only remaining path to the Murphy bed.
