You might be pleasantly surprised if you look across the water toward Eastie, especially if you're in the market for something on the more affordable side of Boston's housing market. This week's open house tour will take you under the half million dollar mark, and yet not even that far from the city's core. Each listing touts its convenient proximity to public transportation and highway access. Not only that, but there's easy access to the waterfront, parks, and airport. It's no surprise that Eastie is one of the neighborhoods to keep your eye on, as new development and growing interest is starting to push sale prices beyond historic marks. Do yourself a favor and just take a peek of what the other side of Boston might look like. The skyline views won't disappoint.
