Home prices in nine Boston neighborhoods are asking an average of at least $1,000 a square foot as June gets underway, according to an analysis of market-rate listings from real estate research site NeighborhoodX.

Those nine are: The Seaport District, Back Bay, Beacon Hill, Bay Village, Fort Point, Fenway/Kenmore/Audubon, the South End, the Financial District, and the North End.

In general, Boston asking prices at the start of June range from $170 a square foot in Dorchester’s Uphams Corner to $3,857 a square foot in Back Bay. That neighborhood is outpacing even the new-condo-laden Seaport District.

“But it is worth remembering that we’re using price per foot as a metric here, not asking price—because this allows us to make a more granular comparison,” NeighborhoodX research director Constantine Valhouli said over email.

Check out the chart below for a fuller breakdown of where asking prices stand throughout Boston this June. And good luck out there.
