Spotted on Craigslist: 400-square-foot Strathcona micro unit for $1700

It’s no secret that Vancouver’s rental market is out of control.

But this Craiglist posting for a brand new 400-square-foot micro unit in Strathcona priced at $1,700 a month has us wondering if this is a bad joke.

The listing describes the unit as a being in a “prime area of Strathcona, with in-suite laundry, stove, microwave, and mini fridge.”

The unit, which is located at 609 Heatley Avenue, will be ready for August 1, the ad says.

However, the ad seems to say there is no bedroom in the unit, (but there is at least a bathroom.)

Look on the bright side, at least you’ll be able to wake up next to your mini-fridge.
