Boston price comparison: What $900,000 buys around the city right now

Including in Dot, JP, the South End

Can the hefty sum of $900,000 buy you a lot of space in Boston right now? Our latest Curbed Comparisons set out to find the answer. (And the short answer is: Kind of.)

↑ The 2,099-square-foot, nine-room Victorian at 8 Alveston Street in Jamaica Plain is fixer-upper, to be sure: “This sizable home is ready for a makeover,” according to the Unlimited Sotheby’s International listing.

It’s asking $900,000 even and currently has a tenant living there.

↑ Unit WM101 is the last two-bedroom in the last phase of Dorchester’s Lofts at Lower Mills at 1243 Adams Street. The 1,778-square-foot duplex with two bathrooms is asking $899,000 through Keith Brokerage.

The condo fee is $940.

↑ Unit 314 at 45 West Third Street where the Seaport, Southie, and the South End converge runs to 960 square feet and includes one bathroom and one bedroom.

It’s part of the under-construction Port45 complex that’s supposed to be finished this May. The condo is asking $899,000 through Coldwell Banker with a condo fee of $516.22.

↑ Unit 1 at 325 Columbus Avenue in the South End has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,224 square feet.

The floor-through is asking $895,000 through Rondeau-Tierney Real Estate. The condo fee is $406.

↑ We end in South Boston proper at Unit 4D in 125 B Street. The 1,134-square-foot two-bedroom, two-bathroom is asking $889,000 through Gibson Sotheby’s.

The penthouse with 13-foot ceilings and two parking spaces has a condo fee of $405.50.
