Boston price comparisons: What $600,000 buys right now

Including in JP, Eastie, and Southie

Only in Boston—and perhaps San Francisco and New York—could $600,000 seem like a bargain for a nice home.

Here are five condos in five different neighborhoods in the city asking around that magic number. Which would you pick?

↑ Unit 4 at 826 East Fifth Street in Southie’s City Point is 918 square feet, and includes two bedrooms as well as one and a half bathrooms. There’s central air and deeded parking; and there’s private outdoor space, too, including a terrace.

The duplex’s price is $589,000 and the condo fee is $232.41.

↑ The 2,027-square-foot Unit 2 at 70 Edgewood Street in Roxbury is the product of a gut-renovation of an 1880s Victorian. There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and central AC. Parking is available for rent.

The price is $579,000 and the condo fee is $199.

↑ Unit B in the North End’s 2 North Bennet Court has its own separate entrance and all the exposed brick one could hope for.

It’s got two bedrooms and one bathroom, and it runs to 670 square feet. The price is $599,900 and the condo fee is $110.

↑ Unit 8 at 63 Maverick Square in East Boston includes the right to build out a 200-square-foot roof deck.

The 1,388-square-foot condo also includes two bedrooms and one bathroom; and one parking space is included in the price. There’s central AC, too.

The tag is $599,000 and the condo fee is $500.99.

↑ The 1,721-square-foot top floor of 584 Centre Street in Jamaica Plain comes with two private decks—one in the rear, one out front—and three bedrooms. There are also two full bathrooms.

The price is $600,000 even. No word yet on the condo fee.
