Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a weekly column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount (or thereabouts) in the Boston area. Is one woman’s studio another woman’s townhouse? Let’s find out! Today, the magic number is $700,000.
Unit 2 at 663 East Seventh Street in South Boston comes with lots of new stuff: New fridge, new dishwasher, new deck, new backsplash. The 1,044-square-foot two-bedroom, two-bathroom is asking $700,000 on the nose. The condo fee is $131.
Another Dorchester number, Unit 6 at 20 Fuller Street is part of a new six-condo project. The 1,202-square-foot three-bedroom, two-bathroom is asking $699,900. That tag includes two deeded parking spaces and a large amount of storage. The condo fee is $200.
