Silver Lake Real Estate: Tiny Plastic House

A vigilant CurbedLA editor noticed the ad before it was yanked from Craigslist. It wasn't real, but it did underscore the competitiveness of our neighborhood's rental market.

How much would you pay for a 12-square-foot plastic house in the Silver Lake hills?

Eight hundred dollars?

That's what one short-lived ad was asking Tuesday on Craigslist.

CurbedLA reports that other details of the choice property included proximity to a skunkhole and "no running water, no heat, no A/C."

The property--as you can see above--was a plastic kids playhouse, and the gag was promptly pulled from the site.

CurbedLA grabbed a screen snap that reminds us just how tough the rental market--especially along Silver Lake Boulevard near the Reservoir-- can be.
