9. New York City.
Stats: 750 Sqft. 1 bedroom apartment.
Shocker! There are plenty of decent 1 bedroom apartments in this price range for sale in the Big Apple. Don’t get too excited, though, because, on top of your mortgage, you’ll be paying a $1,295 monthly assessment for such perks like a 24-hour doorman, extra storage and laundry. The unit itself, though, is certainly nice and not too small — the kitchen is updated, the bedroom is a good size, and the hardwood floors seem to be in good shape. But who needs to stay at home when you’re in the heart of the posh Upper East Side?
