Imagine: you have about $500K to drop on a place and you've narrowed it down to two one-bedroom condos in Lower Nob Hill. 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 first-floor one-bedroom doesn't look like it gets much natural light, but it has a private patio, accessible from the bedroom and living room. The unit is small - especially the kitchen - but efficiently laid-out. There's a Bosch washer/dryer in a closet and compact stainless appliances in the kitchen. Hardwood throughout. Plus, the building features a pretty facade and there's a nice roof deck and bike storage. No parking, though.
