Boston price comparison: What $650,000 buys in Cambridge and Somerville now

New, 1 comment

Not many options

The sum $650,000 can buy some substantial housing in Cambridge and neighboring Somerville—but there are not a lot of options at that price.

Our latest Curbed Comparisons checks in on what $650K or thereabouts buys in both cities.

↑ We’ll start in Somerville’s Powder House Square area with Unit 3 at 109 Josephine Avenue. It’s a 1,248-square-foot two-bedroom, one-bathroom asking $649,900 through the Steve Bremis Team.

The condo fee is $200 and an off-street parking permit is included.

↑ The Coldwell Banker listing for the 1,516-square-foot single-family house at 23 Webster Street in East Somerville says the spread needs some updating (it’s been in the same family for more than 50 years).

It’s got three bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms; and is asking $649,000.

↑ The last selection in Somerville around $650,000 is Unit 2 at 36 Rossmore Street in the city’s Prospect Hill neighborhood.

The 1,026-square-foot two-bedroom, two-bathroom is the product of a gut-renovation, and is asking $649,000 through the Ellen, Janis, and Josh Real Estate Team.

The condo fee is $95.73.

↑ The sole Cambridge selection is a 705-square-foot one-bedroom, one-bathroom at 50 Follen Street in the Harvard Square area.

Unit 108 wants $639,000 through Coldwell Banker. The condo fee is $293.
