Boston price comparison: What $900,000 buys in Boston right now

Including in Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, and the North End

The sum $900,000 is not all that astronomical an amount in the Boston housing market (sorry to hit you with that on the early side of Monday morning).

The good news, though, is that it does buy quite a bit of the good real estate life around the city, including gorgeous detached houses and sleek condos.

We start our latest Curbed Comparisons in Dorchester, where the pretty 54 Grampian Way in Savin Hill is asking $899,000 for its three floors of living space and 2,423 square feet total.

There are five bedrooms and two full bathrooms; and a fire pit in the yard, never mind parking for two.


Now up to the North End, where Unit 3M at 20 Tileston Street is asking $895,000. It includes 13-foot ceilings and a location smack-dab in the middle of the historic neighborhood.

The 2-BR, 2-BA runs to 1,025 square feet; and comes with off-street parking. (Condo fee n/a.)


From the North End to South Boston and Unit 2 at 768 East Fifth Street. The 1,112-square-foot 3-BR, 2.5-BA in the neighborhood’s City Point section includes a W/D and a built-in surround-sound system.

There are two parking spaces, too, including one garaged. The total tag is $899,999 and the condo fee is $200.


Down in the Moss Hill area of Jamaica Plain, the family that has owned 135 Moss Hill Road for nearly 30 years is selling the ranch-style house for $899,000.

The 2,954-square-foot spread includes three bedrooms and two full bathrooms as well as a large back deck, a finished basement, and a two-car garage.


We end in the busy, busy South End, at Unit 603 in the Gateway Terrace complex at 40 Fay Street. It’s an 889-square-foot 1-BR, 1-BA asking $900,000 on the dot (with a $500 condo fee).

Fourteen windows and a W/D are included.
