Which of These Chelsea Co-ops Is Worthier of $1.4 Million?

New, 10 comments

Imagine you have around $1,400,000 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: 165 W 20th Street #6AB/ 130 West 16th Street #26
Price: $1,400,000 $1,350,000
Maintenance: $1,709 $1,290
Beds, Baths: 2, 2 2, 1

↑ This top floor apartment in 165 W 20th Street was made by combining a studio and a one-bedroom and, unfortunately, it's tough to see how good of a job they did without a floorplan. However, there are a number of enticing features here, such as the archways, sunken living room, and renovated kitchen. And hey, the broker says that the combination is "seamless," so let's all just take his word for it.

↑ This renovated apartment in 130 West 16th Street has been lingering on the market for a while, but the good news is that, after some pricechopping, it's the cheaper of the two places by a margin of $50,000 and also has 25 percent cheaper monthly costs. The bad news is that it's down one bathroom.
