(NEW YORK, NEW YORK)— If you haven’t heard the news, now is the time to buy. What would you believe you could get for under $500k in Park Slope, one of the most expensive neighborhoods in NYC? At the moment, it would be this modest but tasteful second-floor apartment on Utica Avenue, listed by Compass’ Cindy Fazio, at only $400k. What’s more, once you can pay off the mortgage, you can have the whole thing for only $290 a month in maintenance fees.

The two-room apartment is listed as a studio, but has a tiny, subdivided “sleeping nook” that makes it more like a one-half-bedroom apartment. It has a sizeable kitchen with brand new appliances for the at-home chef who can compromise on living space but not cooking space, and a sunny central living room outfitted with full length mirrors to make it feel larger.

Not quite ready to take the leap? Consider that the apartment comes along with a coveted 3’x6’ in-building storage unit, so you don’t actually have to own less—you can just see less in your common living space.
