$1,700 Apartment Vs. $40,000 Apartment

  • Published on Sep 17, 2017
  • "Babe. I got this spot."
    In Worth It: Lifestyle Season 2, a spin off of BuzzFeed’s hit series Worth It, host Steven Lim and his buddies embark on a new adventure, setting out to try different experiences at three different price points: affordable, middle tier, and luxury--from airplane seats to cars to videos games. At the end of the episode, the gang decides which experience is the most “worth it” at its given price.

    Higher prices are why people move to Texas and other states with lower taxes. Lots of people from California move to Texas. I welcomed one and she said that the weather here is better.

    I'd prefer the 1,7K over the 20k any day. Much more cozy, down to earth and personal. The 40k was awesome and the interior was tasteful for a change, but probably wiser to buy a place like that than to throw money out the window by just renting it.

    I really like how cute the $1,700 apartment was but it really bothers me that the bedroom is right next to the door. I’m sorry but I hate that type of layout. If I was rich and can afford it I’d pick the $20,000. The $40,000 seems too much but I did really like the bathroom, that is the kind of bathroom I want.
