Imagine you have $899K to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two apartments with the same San Francisco charm, same amount of bedrooms, same square footage, and same distance to a great park. 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 Victorian condo is half a block from the Panhandle. It's packed with charming architectural details like beautiful built-ins, hardwood flooring, and tall ceilings. There's a table and four chairs shoved into a corner in the kitchen, so it's possible that one of the bedrooms was originally intended to be a double parlor or dining room. There's direct access to the shared yard from a deeded deck off of the kitchen, and there's a deeded storage room in the building with a washer and dryer.
