Listing of the Day: Van Cortlandt Park South

180 Van Cortlandt Park South #5C, 2 Bedroom - $265,000

This is a big unit (950 square feet) at the foot of one of the prettiest parks in the City. The building looks well kept - it even has one of those fancy Co-op names ("the Van Cort" - I guess brevity is their thing). This apartment is also right near Riverdale and all of its amenities.

The kitchen and bathrooms look like they've been updated and the apartment doesn't appear to need that much work. All in all, this is a pretty solid apartment for a pretty solid price (although you'd be crazy to pay the asking price for anything in this market). The maintenance isn't listed, so that is a kind of big X-factor. A super high maintenance could be a deal breaker; high maintenance usually means a poorly managed building and it's a monthly fee that in all honesty doesn't provide much (horribly regulated heat? a super?) and builds no equity.

The transportation is very nice with the 1 train a block or so away.
