Imagine you have around $600,000 to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two apartments. 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.

↑ If you can look past the underwhelming listing photos, you'll find a cute but not particularly high-ceilinged one-bedroom at 118 Prospect Park SW, a building with an actual front yard with grass and a flower bed and everything. The unit comes with a washer/dryer and central air, and the building has a gym (as unlikely as that may look from the outside).
↑ 1139 Prospect Avenue contains a duplex one-bedroom that is $35,000 cheaper and one square foot larger. The lower level has the living room, bathroom, and kitchen, while the upper level is the bedroom connected to a very pleasant private terrace.
