1.    The kinds of Lofts – Basically there are two kinds of lofts—hard and the soft one. Hard lofts are basically an existing building or a structured which has been reconfigured and then it became a loft. And soft lofts are new—they are built with new ideas and are built with higher ceiling, big windows and there is something “raw” about them. So if you find one loft different from the other, it is maybe because one is hard and the other one is soft.

Although short in supply, they have some of the biggest spaces and this isn’t something you get in most apartments. Even the smallest unit can be about 700-900 square ft and the larger units can be even more than 4000 square ft. amazing isn’t it?

4.    Lofts aren’t really available in higher rises – Unlike apartments; most lofts aren’t likely to be found in any higher rises like at the 25th floor or the 10th floor. Most hard lofts are result of conversion of a church or a factory so it is less likely to find them beyond the 8th floor.
