Hello all, Right now I'm looking at buying my first place. I've found a couple of really nice apartments, and because of the market at the moment, prices are great. A couple of questions though; 1. 500 sqft. This seems pretty small to me, but having viewed an apartment of 520 sqft, it actually seems fine for a 1 bed. What are thoughts of people who have lived in small spaces? If anyone currently lives in a space around this size, maybe show pictures of it with furniture inside? 2. I'm looking at the top floor of the building (I've decided I don't mind paying slightly extra for a roof terrace and view, given the small space). What are the pros and cons of this from experience? 3. What kind of money should I set aside for some good furniture? The apartment I'm looking at is at the very top end, and I want furniture to match the style. I wouldn't mind just buying the basics, and adding to it as and when I have money. 4. Is there anything else I should be looking out for when buying? The whole process is extremely daunting, but I am enjoying it. Anyway, please let me know your thoughts!
