Tags range from $326 a foot to nearly three times that amount as spring heads toward summer

The average asking price for market-rate listings in Brighton was $521 a square foot as of late April, according to an analysis from real estate research site NeighborhoodX.

A range of $326 a foot to $976 a foot, at the new Aberdeen condos at 1650 Commonwealth Avenue, produced that average. See the chart below for more of a breakdown.

So what’s it mean that the asking prices in Brighton now linger near $1,000 a foot? Take it away, NeighborhoodX research director Constantine Valhouli:

On a per-square-foot basis, the most expensive property in Brighton is on par with the most affordable property in Beacon Hill or Seaport. In other words, about $900-something a square foot gets one into the best property in Brighton, or the entry-level properties in two of the fanciest neighborhoods in Boston.
