Welcome to another edition of Curbed Comparisons, where we look at how far a certain amount goes in a particular real estate market right now. In this latest go-round, we look at $750,000 across five different neighborhoods. Turns out, in some places that hefty sum buys you a 1-BR condo, in others a 3-BR house. As they say: location, location, location.
We start with a 3-BR, 3-BA single-family at 31 Maple Street in West Roxbury. It's 1,847 square feet, and comes with central air plus a recently redone kitchen. The Colonial wants $750,000 even.
"Back Bay style" in the South End, according to the listing for Unit 20A at Tremont on the Common at 151 Tremont Street. It's an 800-square-foot 1-BR, 1-BA on the 20th floor with a balcony. It's asking $749,900, and comes with a $456 condo fee for the full-service building.
Smack-dab in the middle of Back Bay, Unit 1 at 259 Beacon Street is asking $749,000 for its two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 854 square feet. There's laundry in-unit. The condo fee is a rather steep (we think) $500.
This is the biggest spread of the bunch, a 3-BR, 2-BA, 2,158-square-foot condo at 22 Thwing Street in Roxbury. Unit 2 is asking $749,000 and has a $225 fee.
We end on the waterfront, in a 1,067-square-foot, 1-BR, 1-BA penthouse at 33 Commercial Wharf. It wants $749,000 and has an absurdly low condo fee of $53 (plus a parking space!).
