With the tiny-house movement enjoying such a vogue, why not take a look at small living spaces that already exist in condo buildings in Los Angeles? Topping the list compiled by real estate analytics website NeighborhoodX of the most petite condos for sale in Los Angeles this month is a very pink maid's unit in Westwood for $225,000. But it's pretty big tease, because, per the listing, the 230-square-foot condo may only be purchased by someone who currently owns a unit in the complex. The second-smallest condo, also in Westwood and measuring a cozy 352 square feet, went on the market August 15 for $300,000, and as of August 18, is already pending sale. (It is accepting backup offers.)
The top 10 smallest units all measure under 500 square feet—more than half are under 400 square feet—and they range in asking price from $225,000 to $385,000. The priciest is for a 384-square-foot condo in Playa del Rey.
Take a tour of the compact units below:
