East Boston housing prices toward the end of 2018 average $500-plus a square foot

Wide range produces this mean, however, and neighborhood’s upper end comparable to South End prices


The average asking price for a market-rate home in East Boston as of early December is $514 a square foot, according to an analysis from real estate research site NeighborhoodX.

That places the fast-changing enclave pricing-wise between Jamaica Plain, where the average is $498 a square foot, and Chestnut Hill, where it’s $594 a foot, per NeighborhoodX research director Constantine Valhouli.

Also worth noting: Eastie’s upper end is comparable in price now to average asking prices in Waterfront, the North End, and the South End, Valhouli said.
