Two Newish Fort Greene Condos Compete for Buyers

New, 12 comments

Imagine you have around $600,000 to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two apartments 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: 230 Ashland Place #10B/ 383 Carlton Avenue #8S
Price: $599,000 $625,000
Common Charges: $540 $600
Square Footage: 707 614
Beds, Baths: 1, 1 1, 1

? This converted studio in Forte at 230 Ashland Place is a little bit bigger and a little bit cheaper, both of which are good things. There are also multiple large closets, including one big enough for a washer/dryer, and some large East-facing windows.

? If this 1BR/1BA in Greenhouse Condos at 383 Carlton Avenue is a little smaller and a little pricier, it'll need to make up for that with something. Hence...the balcony? Depending on how much you like balconies? It also offers walls that are painted colors other than white, and its windows and balcony face south, which is often thought to be the best direction to face.
