I looked at a couple of apartments for sale this weekend.
Here's what I learned:
When the apartment is listed for $500,000, and the prospectus says "Beautiful apartment, just needs a little Tender Loving Care from you!"
..that means, "It's a rats nest in a scary neighborhood, your neighbors are crack addicts and you'll have to sink another half million dollars into it to make it inhabitable! Oh, and your mortgage payment will be about $4,000 a month. Enjoy!" #
