The first apartment has quite a convenient location, and it’s offered at quite an affordable price. But although it’s close to some nice green areas the block has limited outdoor space of its own—and not too much space inside either. The layout of the rooms here is quite neat, but anyone who buys this place going to have to consider whether it will fulfill all their needs in the near future.

The second house also features a central location, and has a spacious interior, with no fewer than 5 bedrooms and 4 baths and a separate in-law suite. But, be careful, this place was built 100 years old! And, having a look at the garden and the outside of this property, we reckon that some work may need to be done to get it up to scratch, and any prospective buyer would need to take the cost of that into account.

The third property is a prime example of Halifax luxury real estate. It boasts a great location by the ocean and also top quality finishes throughout. But we think this is a rather grey and plain-looking house, with some grassland outside but not much else. If the owner doesn’t use the marina next door, do the property’s many perks merit a price tag of nearly $5M? That’s something to be considered when evaluating whether this property is truly worth it!

Which property would you declare the winner? Let us know in the comments below!

    I like the second house. I think that it is rather pricey, especially given the state of the landscaping in the backyard. Well, out of my price range, but lovely.
