Imagine you have around $2,500,000 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.
|Address:||391 Grand Avenue/||63 Gates Avenue|
↑ 391 Grand Street is the smaller of the two houses, with less than half the overall space, but it's also $300,000 cheaper. In addition, it looks like it was renovated more recently and has nice floors and a lot of original details, and one pretty weird kitchen. It is separated into an owner's duplex with two full-floor rentals above.
↑ 63 Gates Avenue, five blocks west, has an additional story and a lot more space for the owner — the owner's residence takes up four floors, which means there's only room for one income-producing rental. It also contains a bunch of original details, but looks less updated overall.
