Where can you live for $2,000 a month?

San Francisco

Address: 701 Minnesota St. #121

Price: $525,000

Square feet: 661

At just over 200 square feet larger than our New York condo, this is the second-smallest home on our list. But it certainly makes up for its small size with its big modern-industrial style. It's a one-bedroom, one-bathroom loft with exposed brick and cement floors throughout the home. Large windows in the front allow for great lighting. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and solid-surface countertops. There's also space available for a stackable washer and dryer in the closet next to the kitchen. This is located in the Potrero Square Lofts building, which is FHA-approved and across from Esprit Park in the Potrero Hill district. The loft is two blocks from the 3rd Street rail and Highway 280. There's also a parking space available. Dues are an extra $402.21 per month.
