Boston price comparison: What $600,000 buys right now

Including in Southie and Dot

The sum $600,000 is not all that astronomical for the Boston housing market. What does this relatively modest tag bring?

Our latest Curbed Comparisons romps through five different neighborhoods to find out.

We commence in West Roxbury, where the 1,400-square-foot colonial at 100 Maple Street is on sale for $599,000. It’s got three bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as a deck and a yard (and a finished basement).


Now to East Boston and the Porter 156 complex. There, a 1,011-square-foot loft is asking $599,999. It’s a 1-BR, 1-BA; and the condo fee is $273.


Out in Hyde Park, near where Boston meets Milton, the Spanish-style colonial at 985 Metropolitan Avenue is on sale $589,000. It’s an expansive 3,000 square feet and includes four bedrooms as well as three and a half bathrooms.


Now to the Lower Mills area of Dorchester and the house at 1121 Washington Street. It’s a 4-BR, 2.5-BA spread over 2,240 square feet. Price tag? $595,000.


We end on the west side of South Boston. There, the recently renovated, 1,527-square-foot Unit 1192 in 192 Athens Street is asking $599,000 for its two bedrooms and two full bathrooms as well as a private patio out back.
