South End home prices: The 10 most affordable market-rate properties now

The Boston neighborhood is not normally associated with ‘affordable’—look closer, though

The South End is generally not the first neighborhood in which prospective buyers hunting for a bargain search. It’s an expensive area, even by modern Boston standards.

Yet there are relatively affordable market-rate homes in the South End. A new analysis from real estate research site NeighborhoodX proves it (much as the site proved that, yes, you can find a decent condo in Boston for under $300,000).

The analysis skipped short sales, foreclosures, and income-restricted options; so the chart below truly is the South End’s 10 most affordable market-rate homes.

Note that none of these are palatial in size—the largest is 1,050 square feet and it’s also the most expensive in terms of total price. Presumably, though, buyers aren’t looking for size in the South End, but location. Right?
