Like Brookline, Cambridge is not generally the locale that one settles on when one is searching for an affordable home in the Boston area. The People’s Republic is notorious for a limited housing supply that spurs over-asks, bidding wars, and high prices.
But! As this analysis of market-rate listings from real estate research site NeighborhoodX makes clear, there are decent homes for sale in Cambridge at non-astronomical prices.
All 10 of these homes, in fact, are under $600,000 each. They’re all condos, yes, but what did you expect? Houses in Cambridge go for lots and lots.
The most affordable option among the 10 is a 1-BR, 1-BA asking $485,000. The two most expensive are each asking $599,900—one’s a 1-BR, 1-BA at 53 Kent Street and the other is a 2-BR, 2-BA at 159-161 Hancock Street. Check it out above.
A couple of caveats on this analysis: NeighborhoodX did not include two tiny market-rate listings nor one that required a lot of renovation work from the buyer(s).
