Out in Boston’s busy, busy Brighton, the average asking price on a condo or a single-family is $469 a square foot, according to a new analysis of market-rate sales listings from real estate research site NeighborhoodX.
A wide range spawns this average (see the chart below). The cheapest listing is $285 a foot for Unit 1 at 15 Sparhawk Street, a more than 3,000-square-foot duplex (pictured above). The priciest is $1,039 for Unit 3A at 2012 Commonwealth Avenue, a 701-square-foot 1-BR.
A couple of other notes on the Brighton data:
- Parking matters. The listings at 2012 Comm. Ave. and 1933 Comm. Ave. include parking spots, which adds value to the properties without adding to the residential square footage. The asking prices are nudged slightly higher to reflect this value, according to Constantine Valhouli, co-founder of NeighborhoodX.
- Also, a little context: The least expensive Brighton listing is asking about the same as the average for a Roslindale home ($287/square foot). And the most expensive listing is just below the average price of $1,166 a foot in Back Bay.
