A “plugged-in” reader first flatters us (good thinking) and then hits us up for some other readers’ thoughts (even better):
“There’s a unit at The Palms that I’m interested in. It’s a 2 bedroom/2.5 bath/2 car-parking (tandem) 2-level penthouse unit (~1,054 sq ft.) with an outdoor terrace (~150 sq ft.) that’s got a view of the city skyline selling at around $1,000/sq ft. The Infinity, however, has a 2 bedroom/2 bath/1 car-parking unit (~1,100) on the 5th floor (no view, no balcony) that’s also selling at around $1,000/sq ft.
Which of the two units is better investment, 5 to 10 years down the line?”
As it’s Friday we’re tempted to simply quote Devo (“Freedom of choice is what you got, freedom from choice is what you want…”) and direct him to the SocketSite Forums, but instead we’ll open it up to the readers. And yes, flattery will get you everywhere (something about loving the site and forwarding it to all his family and friends).
