It's wise to look similar properties in the area for: price, size, conditions, transportation, and then you could make the right decision. Feel free to contact me, Woodside or Sunnyside

602 square feet for a 2 bedroom doesn't sound right. Do all the bedrooms have a window and closet space. How about the living room-does it have a window. Anna you have to take into account the space. Will you be comfortable in both?

The size is 621 sqft, there is no elevator, basement, parking spot, but close to the train, $280000 new constraction in Woodside. The other one in Sunnyside just a large one bedroom a little more expansive, close to the train, parking and storage and landry in the basement extra charge.

Location, Location, Location.....

This is the name of the "game". You want to buy where your purchase will gain equity, it will be easier for you to sell it when you decide to move.
You can do a research for comparables on both places to find out what is the current market price for each. Closeness to public transportation is a major plus for consideration.

Feel free to contact me if you need further assistance with your decision. Good Luck!

What is your purpose for buying?
What is the lifestlye you look forward too?
Which of these two take you in the direction you want?
Better decisions are made when you are elevated. Know your 5, 6 and 7 and the choice will be more clear. Your agent can help you in this.

Best of success,

Too vague to answer. Usually the location is the main factor in pricing real estate. Then more room, more value...
Please consider getting an agent of your own to help you make an informed decision. You're buying a home, you should know all your options. Good luck!!

You should get a buyers agent. They should be paid bt the seller but they can advise you on these and other issues. They can easily prepare a report on the value of each unit in comparison to it's price which should help you decide.
