Boston is one of the few cities in America where $1 million is not that much money in the real estate market. Asking prices in several of its neighborhoods right now average at least $1,000 a square foot, after all (you do the math).
Here, then, is what that magic number buys around Boston at the moment. Our latest Curbed Comparisons starts in Roxbury.
↑ Unit 2 at 27 Howland Street is the product of a gut-renovation. The 3,500-square-foot three-bedroom, three-bathroom is asking $999,900 through H & Co. Real Estate, and includes new everything as well as a private yard and two parking spaces.
The condo fee is $250.
↑ Unit 12-N at 201 E Street is part of a new South Boston condo complex. It’s 1,227 square feet; and has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The spread includes two garaged parking spots.
The asking price through Jay Rooney Cityside is $999,000. The condo fee is $365.
↑ At the W at 110 Stuart Street in downtown Boston, Unit 16F is asking $995,000 through Compass. The 857-square-footer has one bedroom and one and a half bathrooms.
The condo fee is $991, but that entitles a buyer to W Hotel services as well as one garaged parking space.
↑ Unit 2A out in West Roxbury is part of the gated Allandale condo complex. It’s 2,613 square feet; and has two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms.
The unit is asking $995,000 through Hammond, and that tag covers two parking spaces. The condo fee is $1,489, and grants access to amenities such as tennis courts and a pool.
↑ We end in Charlestown, where Unit 102 at 380 Bunker Hill Street is asking $995,000 through Otis & Ahearn.
It’s 1,294 square feet; and has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The tag also includes two parking spaces. The condo fee is $451.83.
