Hmm… I’m within that range.

– Two bedroom, two bath, living room, dining room, kitchen, balcony with water view. 1240 sqft
– Pool, tennis courts, elevator.
– Walking distance to three restaurants and a marina.
– Public boat landing across the street (for my kayak).
– Large park very close by
– Bicycle distance to the beach.

Not bad…

Thats would get me a three bed semi, standard 1970’s layout with typical garden of about 30 foot.

In Hong Kong, $1,500 wouldn’t get you a reserved space in the gutter.
