There's been a lot of conversation lately around the ways tiny homes and micro-apartments might help cities—including (or maybe, along with San Francisco, especially) Austin—retain residents who have begun to flee to the suburbs because they can't afford to live in the urban core.
With that discussion in mind, city analytics site NeighborhoodX recently took a closer look at the prices of the smallest condominium units for sale in the city.
The site included only currently listed properties under 450 square feet, which it notes is generally considered the starting point for the types of micro-homes currently under discussion.
The condo size studied ranges from 316 to 449 square feet. The majority, such as the one pictured below, are in the West Campus/West University neighborhood.
Prices range from $237 to $399/square foot, or from $75,000 to $139,000.
Of the nine units on NeighborhoodX's list, only two are not in the West University area—one is in Hyde Park, and the other is in the North University area.
