All this week we’re looking at Boston starter homes—the houses and the condos that are in at least decent shape and that won’t break the bank; not an easy combination to come by in modern Boston.

The below analysis of market-rate listings asking no more than $400,000 comes courtesy of real estate research site NeighborhoodX. Use the box on the upper left of the chart to find other measures, including price per square foot.

Basically, two big takeaways from this: Every listing is for a condo; and there is a surprising range of neighborhoods in the no-more-than$400K market.
