Which Greenpoint One-Bedroom Do You Want to Buy?

New, 9 comments

Imagine you have around $525,000 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: 171 Engert Avenue #3/ 203 Huron Street #3R
Price: $525,000 $525,000
Monthly Costs: $212 $205
Square Footage: 600 624
Beds, Baths: 1, 1 1, 1

↑ This unit in 171 Engert Avenue offers a large, open living and a small bedroom, both with multiple windows. The oak flooring and crown molding with matching baseboards are both pluses, as are the large closets.

↑ Further north at 203 Huron Street, this unit is slightly larger and, to be frank, quite a bit uglier. Although both apartments are located on the third floors of their respective buildings, the living room floor in this one is made of drab white tile for some reason, and there's a fuchsia accent wall doing quite a bit of overcompensating. However, the bedroom is noticeably larger and it comes with a private balcony.
