Boston price comparison: What $700,000 buys around the city right now

Including in Dot, Rozzie, and North End

Boston is one of the few places in the U.S. where $700,000 is not that much money in real estate.

Perhaps because of that, $700,000 (or close to it) is an especially busy price point in the city’s housing market.

Here’s what it buys as 2018 dawns.

↑ Unit 1 at 364-366 Neponset Avenue in the southern reaches of Curbed Cup runner-up Dorchester is a brand-new three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom townhouse-like condo spread over 1,694 square feet.

The $699,999 price tag includes two garaged parking spaces. The condo fee is $300.

↑ The 1,600-square-foot colonial at 6 Anawan Terrace in Roslindale is asking $699,888.

It has three bedrooms and one and half bathrooms as well as a partially finished basement with its own entrance.

↑ Now to the northern reaches of Dorchester. Unit 2 at 10 Enterprise Street is part of a nine-unit development that trumpets its proximity to the planned South Bay expansion, one of Boston’s biggest mixed-use projects.

The 1,209-square-foot two-bedroom, two-bathroom wants $699,000. The condo fee is $200.

↑ This 1,008-square-foot one-bedroom, one-bathroom at 234 Causeway Street in the North End also touts its nearness to a major project underway: The more than 1.5 million-square-foot Hub on Causeway.

Unit 719 is asking $689,000. The condo fee is $681.

↑ Unit 3110 at Charlestown’s Parris Landing complex at 42 Eighth Street includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms over a relatively snug 939 square feet.

The condo is asking $689,000, and the $703 condo fee includes a garaged parking space as well as access to amenities such as a pool and a fitness center.
