It would be an understatement to say that Boston is inhospitable hunting ground for homebuyers. It’s full of high prices, bidding wars, and all-cash offers.
But there are some relative deals out there—and $550,000 is one of the price points where prospective buyers can find them. Come along on our latest Curbed Comparisons.
↑ We start in the Mattapan-Hyde Park borderlands, where the 1,200-square-foot single-family at 64 Polydras Street is on sale for $550,000 even.
The three-bedroom, two-bathroom house comes with nearly 13,500 square feet of land, and so therefore could be considered a development opportunity as well, according to its listing.
↑ Now to Fenway-Kenmore, where Unit 4W at 108 Gainsborough Street just north of Northeastern is asking $550,000 on the nose as well.
The 558-square-foot one-bedroom, one-bathroom includes central AC and a private garden with a brick patio. The condo fee is $286.
↑ Unit 3 at 3 Roslin Street in Dorchester runs to 1,032 square feet and includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The tag is a rather precise $549,999.
The unit includes central air and a condo fee of $200.
↑ The single-family at 2197 Centre Street in West Roxbury has four bedrooms and three full bathrooms amid its 2,176 square feet (it’s the largest selection of the bunch here).
There’s also a basement and a garage. How much? It’s $549,900.
↑ We end in Roslindale, where the recently renovated Unit 1 at 6-8 Hazelmore Road is on sale for $549,000. It comes with one bathroom, yard access, and the potential for three bedrooms.
The price includes one off-street parking spot. The condo fee is $240.
