Cheap One Bedroom at Portofino

I’ve always liked Portofino from the street but never been too impressed by the units that come up for sale. But with 14′ ceilings, 6′ windows, it has potential. Unit 312, a 554 square foot one bedroom hit the market this weekend for $210,000.

    I saw this one last March when it was still for sale. The layout is pretty lousy — it honestly feels even smaller than the 554 sq ft it’s listed as. The bedroom is off a weird diagonal from the living-dining room and storage is minimal. There is a washer-dryer in the unit, but that’s all for amenities. The deck shown is actually the tiny shared deck up a maze of steps. Most of the roof is reserved for the fourth-floor condos in this building.

    Now that it’s been re-listed, I notice that with a $612 monthly special assessment on top of the $441 regular dues and the $1800+ in annual taxes, my cash outlays would exceed my current rent even before I start paying for principal and interest!

    I didn’t realize there was an assessment. Thanks for the heads up! Do you know what it is for?

    No idea — I don’t even know if that assessment was in place last year when I first saw the apartment. There aren’t that many units in the building so even a modest expense requires a big contribution from each owner.
