Moda Now Renting

Ashely points out that rentals from Moda are now available on Seattle Rentals.

Call me crazy but these units are ridiculous. Who would want a 2 bedroom/1 bath unit that is 530 to 631 square feet for $1925 to $2175 per month? That’s insane.

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at matt@urbnlivn.com, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

You can also find me on Twitter, @MattGoyer, or LinkedIn.

    Call me curious…but how do you fit two bedrooms into such a small place?

    Are they like the units in that movie ‘Fifth Element’?

    Maybe they stacked the two bedrooms, one on top of the other.

    Bunkbed with doors = two bedrooms by chance?

    I love that all the photos of the apartment are really just different angles of the sink.

    There was clearly a typo with the prices…they added 1’s in front of the the monthly rents.

    It’s for people that are fresh out of college and miss living in a dorm, but want high end ammenities.

    I like how the sample living room picture looks like another picture of the kitchen. Insane.

    What’s the point of having a roommate if you don’t get the bigger living area that comes with a 2bdr? Not to mention that your bedroom will be smaller than 9×9 and you have to share a bathroom.

    When I was college, I had a 1-bdrm, 325 sq ft apartment. It was small, but the floorplan made very good use of the limited space, so much so that my current living room and bedroom furniture would fit it.

    I now rent a 2-bdrm in Met Tower; twice as much floor space as the Moda 2-bdrm, yet my rent+parking is within their 2-bdrm rent range.

    But re size… When I moved here, and later in period looking at condo options, I’ve looked in the 1000-sf range, including a second bdrm that can accommodate 2 home offices. Bigger, sure, but a lot of places seemed to devote absurd amounts of sq footage to expansive foyers and bathrooms, leaving little for the second bedroom. Throw in lots of odd angles and corners and other design quirks, and I’ve come across a lot of places that simply couldn’t accommodate my rather ordinary furnishings.

    Size isn’t everything.

    Are they trying to make renting this places as big of a failure as they were selling them?

    Who in their right mind is going to pay these prices???
