Imagine you have around $900,000 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?

|Address:||104 Malcolm X Boulevard/||812 Quincy Street|
? 104 Malcolm X Boulevard, separated into an owner's 3BR/2.5BA duplex on the lower two floors and a 3BR/1BA rental on the upper floor, is the larger and more expensive of the two houses. It's also the weirder, by far, in terms of the decor. There's a fruit-bearing Asian pear tree in the backyard.
? 812 Quincy Street has nicer floors, but is a little less ornate overall. It also features two units—an owner's duplex on the upper two floors and a garden-level rental with yard access.
