Recycling For Slobs

There is an aged 14-inch computer monitor in my building's elevator.

I'm sure that, if its owner had sufficient Post-Its to spare, there would be a note advising "free to good home."

Speaking of which, there are six (!) good homes for sale in my building, ranging in price from a paltry $219,000 to a whopping $259,900. One's right next door to me. I haven't noticed any increase in traffic to the building, so I don't know what the level of activity is like, though of course I'm out all day.

Bodes well for my equity standing, I suppose.

Any of those 2 bedrooms?

Four of them, yeah. Starting at $229,900 for the main floor unit.

The one right next door to me is $253,something.

Just wondering - how many square feet are they (approx)? And how old is the building?

Units in my building range from about 550 to 900 square feet, and the building itself dates from 1969, although it was substantially updated in the late 90's and we're scheduled to get a whole new elevator sometime early next year.

Wow, that's not bad for your location in Calgary, although I'm sure that most people would find your 1 bedroom a little on the small side, mostly due to the tiny tiny amount of storage space. On the up side, I like the kitchen.
