Imagine you have around $750,000 to spend on an apartment and you've narrowed it down to two fairly similar co-ops. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch. (Trying to decide between two places in real life? Send them in to the tipline and let everyone else decide for you.)
|Address||63 East 9th St.||211 Thompson St.|
|Beds, Baths||1, 1||1, 1.5|
As a duplex, 211 Thompson already has a leg up. It also has a larger kitchen and an extra half-bath to go with its (larger) bedroom. But is it enough to make up for the 19% higher pricetag? To go along with its reduced cost, 63 East 9th boasts a slightly larger living room and three times the closets. It also doesn't require a board interview, so you can live there even if you weird everybody out when you talk. 211 Thompson does not allow students or dogs (and definitely no dogs who are also students.) Now let's get to voting!
