How Much Space Is Enough? | Centers And Squares

Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

How Much Space Is Enough?

Our tour was short this week because of the upcoming holiday weekend.  We saw only four properties, two of which were under 500 square feet in size.  It really made me think – how much space is enough?

The 390 sq. ft. condo that we saw really drove home the point that a relatively small amount of space can be enough – can be just right in fact.  The one-bedroom condo we saw had a small bedroom, a living room / dining room that fit a couch, a small desk, and a dining table, and a little kitchen.  It was compact, well laid out, and very appealing.

Truth be told – those are the rooms in which I spend almost all of my time.  I work at my desk, I hang out in the kitchen, I sleep – though not enough. The rest of the rooms in the house?  Storage for my stuff.

There’s a Tiny House movement afoot in America.  In Cambridge, you can opt for a small condo if you want to downsize dramatically.  Here are some options on the market – click on the small photo for more photographs and additional info:

And if you’re in the market for a condo or house in Cambridge, don’t let the lack of new listings this week get you down.  Few new properties are listed for sale close to Memorial Day.  Next week should be a good week for new listings.
