We kid, we kid (though there is clearly a bird cage in one of the listing photos). This 1-BA, 1-BR in Brighton near the Green Line is your basic starter apartment, a nice, cozy run of 623 square feet with new appliances and a recent paint job. And a modest price-chop of $500 down to $228,500. It last traded in November 2010 for an even $223K.
