Imagine you have around $1.1 million to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two condos. 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.

↑ This two-bedroom condo is located in an 18th-century building close to the South Street Seaport, but it’s gotten a thoroughly modern renovation. There’s a lofted area with a den, an in-unit washer-dryer, and two completely updated bathrooms, both of which have fancy fixtures. The open-concept floorplan leads to a private patio, which is a pretty lovely perk. It’s asking $1.1 million.
↑ For a totally different experience, there’s this nearly 900-square-foot one-bedroom condo on the 12th floor of the Setai Wall Street, a hotel that also has residences. The listing touts the apartment’s high-end finishes and appliances—Brazilian walnut floors, granite counters, Miele stove, and the like—along with its access to the building’s amenities, including a communal rooftop lounge and the schmancy Setai spa. It’s asking $1.165 million.
