Imagine you're browsing the real estate market and plan to drop a bit over half a million, $549,000 to be exact, on a multi-family home. You've narrowed it down to two houses in Mid-City but how do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.
On the market since late April, this S. Jefferson Davis Parkway dwelling is split up into a three-bedroom apartment in the front portion of the house with a one-bedroom apartment in the back. Perkage features include built-in bookcases, hardwood floors, granite counter tops, high ceilings, and a small (yet private!) deck area.

Around the corner on Palmyra Street, this just-listed, renovated home has an interesting set-up going on in the kitchen. A tipster pointed out that there's no wall separating the two kitchens in each unit, but this video (y'all might want to hit mute to skip over the annoying soundtrack) shows that there's actually a sliding wall that can split the kitchen areas. Hope you like your neighbors? The house has keyless entry, cypress mantles, the original pocket doors, and a "relaxing backyard oasis" that includes a deck, hot tub, and yard.
