If you have millions of dollars, say around $11,000,000, what do you plan to do with it? Some may say that they will have the grandest vacation at the best place on Earth. But for practical individuals, getting a home is the top priority. And if you narrow the options down to two, how do you make up your mind? Choosing a home is indeed a challenge, especially if you’re already down to two houses. There are many factors that can affect your decision. These include the price, the location, the neighborhood, the interior, the appeal of the home and so much more.
In deciding between two multi-million dollar homes, it’s time for a Real Estate Deathmatch.
There are two eight-digit listings for renovated grand townhouses on the same Greenwhich Village block appearing within 24 hours of each other. It would definitely be a shame not to match them up. So, here it goes. Let’s go to the general details of each home.
62 West 12th Street
Let’s first look into the first home, the more expensive option. This home is located at 62 West 12th Street, on a lovely neighborhood. The price is about $11,250,000, not cheap at all. Taxes amount to $2,276. There are 4 bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. The house was built way back in 1839. The vintage appeal actually adds to the value of the home.
This 62 West 12th Street home is quite smaller and more expensive, but obviously with less tax. It is a single-family home. It comes with more renovation. Some of the features of the home include an elevator and an 18-foot glass atrium. The listing comes with a description of “yesteryear”, which is definitely eye-catching for potential buyers.
76 West 12th Street
Just around the corner, in the same neighborhood is the home at 78 West 12th Street. The price is a little cheaper compared to the first one, which is about $10,695,000. The taxes amount to $2,980. There six bedrooms and four bathrooms, definitely more space compared to the other one. The house was built during the same time frame as the first, which was in the year 1943.
This particular home appears to be separated into three different apartments with an owner’s duplex located on the top two floors. It has retained more of the original details of the home. But as previously stated, it is bigger when it comes to the square foot size of the property.
How to Decide
Well, it all boils down to what the buyer needs. Of course, the aesthetic appeal of these homes also count and play huge role when it comes to deciding which home to buy. We can’t argue on the price of the homes since there is only a small difference, that is if one million is small for you. Both homes have a vintage appeal, since these were built way back in the 1930s to 1940s. If ever you’re interested in buying one of these homes, it is best to go to the homes and talk to the real estate agents.
