A trend we are seeing in the marketplace in major cities across the U.S. are as more and more millennials continue to gravitate towards convenience and location of living in desirable areas, are small urban dwellings under 400 sqft. While living in these micro apartments may give you savings in your bank account along with conveniences to be in the new hippest neighborhood in town, you may be leaving things behind which cause a larger financial impact in the long run. Aside from the fact you can pick up and leave in a moments notice to a new city, vacation or travel, throwing out these goods may not be the answer to a carefree, minimalist life in a big city.
A reality that comes along with living in these micro apartments and tossing out couches, tables, chairs, desks so you can into an overpriced condo is that you will eventually need all of these things again.
This causes a financial impact on young adults who will eventually need most of these items again if they ever decide to move into an apartment with that extra 200sqft or den, or office.
Millennial’s have all been actively endorsing vintage items, re-usable goods, and stylish family heirlooms over the years, but have consistently been eliminating these possessions from moves, travels, and new roommates.
A great solution to think about is self-storage in larger cities, with the option to avoid a financial burden later on and still have access to items which can help fill your new place when your done traveling, or have kids, even moving into a cheaper neighborhood with a larger place.An excellent option to keep these items at a minimal cost with a potentially huge reward later on and hopefully vintage items to pass onto the next generation!
