Hey, an older apartment in a nice pre-war building in a central location is much preferable to a cheaply built new box outside of the city center. I would rather buy an old apartment and renovate the kitchen and the bathroom, refinish the wood floors, maybe even change the windows, a nice paint job. New is not always better.
