Boston price comparison: What $600,000 buys around the city

Including in Dot, Southie, and West Roxbury

What does $600,000 command in the Boston real estate market as of late February? As with some much regarding the property ladder, it looks like that depends on location.

In some spots, $600,000 nabs a one-bedroom condo of modest size; in others, prospective buyers can positively luxuriate.

Our latest Curbed Comparisons dives into the sum in five different neighborhoods.

↑ Unit 1 at 96 Neponset Avenue in Dorchester runs to 1,711 square feet, and contains two bedrooms and two full bathrooms.

The $599,999 tag from the Foley Federico Team also includes two parking spaces, in-unit washer-dryer, and a wrap-around deck.

The condo fee is $205.87.

↑ In West Roxbury, $559,900 buys a 1,663-square-foot colonial-style house at 204 Maple Street. It’s got the potential for four bedrooms; and there are one and a half bathrooms.

There is also a two-car garage, though the LAER Realty Partners’ listing does note that the basement “could use a do-over.”

↑ Unit 4 at 528 Tremont Street in the Curbed Cup-winning South End is a relatively snug 602 square feet. It’s got one bedroom and one bathroom, and a W/D comes with the $599,900 tag.

The condo fee for the Michael J. Quinn-listed spread is $109.

↑ Unit 104 at 881 East First Street in South Boston is a 992-square-foot airy affair, with 13-foot ceilings and plenty of exposed beams and piping.

The one-bedroom, one-bathroom is asking $599,900 through Classified Realty Group.

That tag also gets a buyer a parking space; and a W/D comes included. The condo fee is $273.34.

↑ We finish in the North End at 56 Prince Street, where Unit 3 is asking $595,999 through Keller Williams.

It’s 787 square feet, and has one bedroom and one bathroom. The price includes in-building storage. The condo fee is $297.64.
