The average asking price for market-rate listings in always-desirable Dorchester’s especially desirable Neponset and Savin Hill areas is $444 a square foot right now, according to an analysis from real estate research site NeighborhoodX.
Why Savin Hill and Neponset? Because both areas offer prime waterfront and waterfront-facing (not the same thing) real estate.
The range of prices that produces the $444/foot average runs from $220 a square foot to $594—both ends found in properties in Neponset.
Incidentally, this range is more expensive than the asking range for waterfront properties in Quincy just over the Neponset River. And, as NeighborhoodX co-founder Constantine Valhouli reminds us, the overall average in Quincy right now is $298.
