750 sq feet is a deal breaker for me. Our apartment now is 785 square feet, and we’re bursting at the seams. It’s way too small, and I can’t wait to move. It felt fine in the beginning, but as the years have gone by, it’s gotten more and more cramped.

it sounds great. but the parking situation. we live in 600 sft, which is small. What size home do u live in now? if we could change anything it would to have a second br, or den. so i think u are in luck.
parking- how often do you entertain? for me that would be an issue. our friends mostly live nearby, so they would take public transit, but our families would prob bitch and complain about having to pay plus having to paralell park.
how does this differ from other properties w/i ur area?

I could not do that square footage.

I would consider buying it with the assumption you will live there for 2-3 years, then (purchase and) move to a better place for longer term and rent this place out.

I can see why you would consider this condo as it’s really gorgeous. I would not consider to buy this condo, but probably to rent (if it’s just gonna be both of us and no kids). Reason being: this condo is really built for one or two. The wardrobe would be a tight squeeze really and the size of the kitchen too. More for a bachelor/bachelorette’s lifestyle I’ll say.

I agree with others, keep searching to get all that you want. Especially if this is at the top of your budget, I wouldn’t make the sacrifice.
For me, the absolutely deal breaker would be the parking, both for yourself and potential guests. I can’t STAND being stressed about parking when I go to visit people!
