Which $1M Park Slope Floor-Through Would You Choose?

New, 4 comments

Make your choice!

Imagine you have around $1 million to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two houses. 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.

Apartment no. 1: 831 Carroll Street

Price: $995,000

Monthly taxes/fees: $1,050

Type: Co-op

Beds, baths: Two beds, one bath

↑ This two-bedroom apartment is barely a block away from Prospect Park, but it also has its own private backyard in case you don't feel like walking all the way to the park. It's in a five-unit co-op building, and the apartment itself—which is a long, railroad-style space—has plenty of closet space, along with two bedrooms (one of which is, admittedly, quite small).

Apartment no. 2: 654 Carroll Street

Price: $1.1 million

Monthly taxes/fees: $732

Type: Co-op

Beds, baths: Two beds, one bath

↑ The particulars of this apartment are quite similar to the one above: It's also a railroad, it also has two bedrooms (one of which is pretty small), and it also has access to its own private backyard. But there are some differences: this one, for example, is priced higher but with a lower monthly fee; it also has a private storage space, and a separate living and dining room.
