Quincy has long been an alternative for those priced out of Boston proper, but it’s becoming even more of a suitable Plan B thanks largely to new development in Quincy Center.
Our latest Curbed Comparisons tackles what $500,000 commands in Quincy. It turns out the figure can land buyers in bonafide single-families as well as thoroughly modern condos near the waterfront.
↑ We’ll start at a house with water views from the second floor. The 1,905-square-foot 224 Palmer Street has five bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a basement. It’s asking $500,000 through Real Estate Trans-Actions Co.
↑ Now, farther inland to another single-family, this one at 28 Churchill Road. It is 1,320 square feet; and has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. It’s asking $499,000 through Tai Tung Realty.
↑ Back toward the water is Unit B at 399 Sea Street. It’s a three-bedroom, townhouse-style condo with two and a half bathrooms and 1,704 square feet total. It’s asking $499,000 through Re/Max Leading Edge after a $10,000 price-chop.
↑ Out on Quincy’s Squantum peninsula is 102 Huckins Avenue, a 1,152-square-foot Cape with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a finished basement. It wants $499,000 through the Shiner Group.
↑ We’ll end with Unit 3 at 1241-B Sea Street on Houghs Neck. It runs to 1,730 square feet; has two levels, two bedrooms, and two and a half bathrooms; and a deck with water views. The spread wants $495,900 through Central Real Estate.
