Though it might be hard to draw general parallels between the real estate climes of New York and Seattle, here are two homes that manage to tighten the gap. Above, shown on top, is a one-bedroom Manhattan apartment that hit the market for $2.495M last year and sold for $1.9M about six months ago—a loss that's probably due to the unit's overwhelming pastels and noticeable '80s vibe. And in Seattle (above, bottom), a 6,950-square-foot home has teal and purple in nearly every corner, from the media room depicted here to a kitchen with "Lego" flooring and "rainbow automotive finishes." It's listed for $1.98M—the going rate these days, apparently, for a home Freddy Mercury would have loved.
