Are either $1000? The Trek is listed at $1200 and Masi at $1100.

With those two specific bikes, I would not care much about brand name. Both have carbon forks, thru axles, the same disc brakes, machine built wheels with dead feeling tires, etc.
I have ridden and worked on modern Claris and Sora, both work just fine. They are basic and well established.

1- I would buy whichever feels best.
2- Assuming both feel the same, I would buy whichever I like the look of best.
3- If both look equally good, buy the Masi. Its better spec'd for less money.
