In the clip, which has been viewed more than 1.2 million times so far, the real estate agent gives a tour of the space and how it connects to the rest of the building.
The anonymous man begins: “They found a corner in this hallway that wasn’t being used and turned it into an apartment.”
Scouring the area, he points out the elevator and the laundry room before entering a room around the corner.
He walks into the apartment and continues: ‘This was just an unused space on the first floor, so they renovated it.
‘It was not originally built as an apartment.’
The agent then mentions a number of highlights including the full kitchen with a dishwasher, high ceilings, and a “pretty nice bathroom.”
He ends the tour in the ‘little bedroom’ before revealing that the entire unit costs $2,300 a month.
And viewers were quick to take to the comments to share their disgust at the offbeat offering.
