10. 1901 Wyoming Ave
Asking Price: $399,900

Price Per Square Foot: $400
The Lowdown: We start our real estate-centric crawl (read: not a bar crawl) at this sprawling 2 bedroom, 1 bath English basement co-op. Reduced by $20,000, the unit has an open floor plan, low fees ($366/monthly), and a roof top terrace on the building.

9. 1812 Vernon St
Asking Price: $394,900
Square Feet: 750
Price Per Square Foot: $527
The Lowdown: You want a corner unit designed for two? Here's a 2 bedroom, 1 bath condo with low monthly HOAs ($260) in a pet-friendly building. There's only one pic for the listing, but the description doesn't sound half bad.

8. 2100 19th St
Asking Price: $379,000
Square Feet: 850
Price Per Square Foot: $446
The Lowdown: Reduced by $20,000, this 2 bedroom co-op has a large chic bathroom to sweeten the offer. The seller is determined to "get this place sold", and highlights
all the listings features, which are many to name. The big ones for us are the built-ins, claw-footed tub, and city views. The co-op fees are $515/monthly.

7. 1831 Belmont Rd
Asking Price: $369,000
Square Feet: 899
Price Per Square Foot: $410
The Lowdown: For 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, this condo ain't a bad deal. But it's a short sale, so be prepared. Reduced from $399,000, the listing description is rife with spelling errors, which is a bit unnerving. Check out this place for yourself so you can feel it out. And then get back to us.

6. 1851 Columbia Rd
Asking Price: $359,000

The Lowdown: Sunny and open and..."BRITE". Not sure if the spelling is supposed to be cute or something, but this 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo has character seeping out its pores. With a bay window perfect for intimate dining, inclusive parking, and a lovely layout, this is perfect for a buyer looking for convenience and cuteness.

5. 1851 Columbia Rd
Asking Price: $350,000

4. 2305 18th St
Asking Price: $349,000
Square Feet: 541
Price Per Square Foot: $645
The Lowdown: Priced to sell is the name of this listing's game. Reduced from $385,000, this 1 bedroom, 1 bath top-floor condo has views of the city and a low condo fee to boot. And from the few pics available, the interior ain't bad.

Asking Price: $339,000
Square Feet: 576
