Meet Unit 3 at 315 Elm Street in Cambridge's Inman Square. It hit the sales market on Wednesday. It's the only condo currently listed in Somerville or Cambridge asking under $250,000.
The top-floor 1-BR, 1-BA could at 383 square feet pass for one of those beloved micro-apartments. Still, there are pluses: the location (it's near a plethora of transit options); the building's pet-friendly (not the easiest thing to find); it comes with additional storage; the condo fee is a relatively low $184; and, well, the location again: your very own, non-deathtrap condo in Cambridge or Somerville under a quarter-mill ($239,000 to be exact). Beat that these days.
