New, 2 comments

Including in Dorchester, Roslindale, and Brighton

The median price for a single-family home in Massachusetts crested $400,000 for the first time in June, reaching $419,000, according to the Massachusetts Association of Realtors.

The median condo price was a hefty $361,500.

So! Our latest Curbed Comparisons tackles houses, townhouses, and condos for under $400,000 and therefore right around the middle of the larger Mass. housing market.

↑ We start in Brighton, where Unit 2 at 315 Allston Street is asking $299,000 through Jonathan Sandler. It’s a studio stretching to 451 square feet and comes with a condo fee of $268.92.

↑ Out in Roslindale, Unit 2 at 721 Hyde Park Avenue runs to 1,406 square feet and includes three bedrooms as well as one bathroom, basement storage, and a deeded off-street parking spot.

It wants $299,000 through Gina Thibeault and includes a condo fee of $245.

↑ Now to Dorchester’s Popes Hill, where Unit A at 39 South Munroe Terrace is asking $359,000 through the Galvin Group.

It’s a 900-square-foot two-bedroom, one-bathroom with a $150 condo fee.

↑ The Cape-style single-family at 45 Linwood Street in Hyde Park runs to 1,139 square feet and includes four bedrooms as well as a newly updated bathroom and a garden shed out back.

It wants $405,000 through Bunny Cecchetto.

↑ Back to Dorchester, this time to the Codman Square area, where the ranch-style single-family at 34 Edson Street is asking $364,900 through Carl West.
