Two decades ago, the comedian George Carlin observed, "That's all you need in life, a little place for your stuff." The next big thing for Americans who love their stuff, but have run out of room: storage condos. These properties, also thought to be good real estate investments, start "as small as a single-car garage or as large as a three-bedroom house." Perhaps people are finally taking to heart Carlin's proposition: "That's all your house is: a place to keep your stuff. If you didn't have so much stuff, you wouldn't need a house." In any case, living in the units is prohibited.
