After becoming a recent success in Cambridge, Boston seems to be just a river away from catching on. Micro-apartments are a nice alternative in high-rent large cities.
Although downsizing doesn’t appear pleasing, micro-units will allow you opportunity to save or spend on things outside of your apartment instead of your entire paycheck being eaten by rent.
For $1,850 you could rent a 379 square feet micro-unit and for $1,900 you are able to rent a 450 square feet micro-unit in Cambridge. Prices are predicted to be similar in the Boston area.
