Imagine you have around $800,000 to spend on an apartment and you've narrowed it down to two co-ops in the same neighborhood. 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.
|Address||15 Jones Street #1D||64 Barrow Street #4|
|Beds, Baths||1, 1.5||1, 1|
Both of these apartment look very nice and each has its own distinct advantages. For 15 Jones Street, those advantages come in the form of an extra half bath, a cool staircase, and some exposed brick. Its main disadvantage is that it's on the first floor, but that also means that it has access to a back patio, which is an advantage again! But you have to share the patio with a neighbor (disadvantage.) But your neighbor has installed a koi pond! Advantage! Your neighbor seems like a cool guy or gal. 64 Barrow Street's advantages are a lot of wood, a fireplace, and the fact that it's $56,000 cheaper and has 30% lower maintenance fees.
