How Small Can You Go in Pasadena?
How small can you go in Pasadena? No, this isn’t a question if you can fit into those skinny jeans or into that high school varsity jacket -- but how small of a home would be comfortable for you?
In recent years, there has been a lot of discussion about simplifying life -- living with less “stuff” but realistically - how small can you go? In Pasadena there are four properties on the market for sale with less than 600 square feet. Yes 600 square feet -- roughly 20 feet by 30 feet -- about the size of a three car garage.
Interestingly enough, of the four properties on the market for sale(as found in our local multiple listing service MLS) -- two condominium complexes are represented. Two of these homes are in the El Molino Terrace complex located at 300 North El Molino in the Playhouse District. One is a short sale studio priced at $174,000 and the other is a bank owned studio priced at $192,500. Both are approximately 450 square feet. The other two are at 2008 built Cinema Lofts at 217 South Marengo. These Old Pasadena adjacent lofts have 540 or 550 square feet and are priced at $359,900 and $369,000.
There are three properties in escrow with under 600 square feet priced with list prices from $215,000 to $230,000. Since January 2012 there have been eleven sales recorded according to our local MLS. They ranged closed price from $103,000(a 238 square foot historic studio at The Barcelona) to $355,000(a Cinema Lofts unit in May).
