What used to be termed as a 'Studio Apartment' (+/- 400 SF) is now being marketed as 'loft' by real estate people to capitalize on current trends and confuse the buying public that any one room apartment is a 'loft'.
(A REAL loft is a minimum of 1,000+ sf with no walls, but could be divided up into several rooms if so desired.)
"Dude, are you sure this new condo of yours is a loft? It seems like a studio apartment to me: it's like 200 sf, you could only fit your bed in here, every time i move I knock something over, and the ceilings are so low I have to duck just to walk around!"
"OF COURSE it's a LOFT, my real estate agent ASSURED me of this! I mean, I wouldn't have paid $900K for a studio apartment! "
