It's widely known that rents in South Florida, especially in Miami, are high compared to most cities, but what's often overlooked is that apartments here are also smaller.
The rent per square foot tends to be especially high in Miami, meaning that residents receive less bang for their buck in terms of living space. That has become a quality of life issue for workers and they look to have families, or even large pets.

According to Apartment List, forking over $1,500 in rent in South Florida will secure an apartment of 890 square feet, based on the average price per square foot of $1.68. In Miami, that same $1,500 would secure a unit of just 770 square feet.
The most expensive major city was San Francisco, with a $1,500 payment being enough to rent a tiny 340 square feet. Other pricey cities that weren't far behind included New York (350 square feet), Boston (470 square feet), Washington, D.C., (510 square feet), Los Angeles (560 square feet) and Seattle (620 square feet).
Miami apartments are downright cavernous in comparison to those cities. But there are other major cities that offer much more space per rent dollar.
Just up Interstate 95 in Jacksonville, $1,500 can rent 1,630 square feet. Other affordable cities include Memphis, Tennessee (2,090 square feet), Indianapolis (1,770 square feet), Detroit (1,750 square feet), Las Vegas (1,640 square feet), Phoenix (1,480 square feet), Charlotte, North Carolina (1,430 square feet), Houston (1,220 square feet), Baltimore (1,090 square feet), Philadelphia (1,030 square feet), Dallas (1,020 square feet), Austin, Texas (1,020 square feet) and Atlanta (1,020 square feet).
Chicago, at 890 square feet, is fairly similar to South Florida.
