One of the meta-themes of the Boston housing market this year—well, any year, really—is how expensive most available homes are, especially condos.

As if to underscore that, Unit 3 at 198 Allston Street in Brighton has dropped on the sales market for $219,900. The one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo is 318 square feet, meaning that tag pencils out to $691 a square foot. For comparison, a report covering Boston deals closed in October found the average condo price per foot to be $773.

But this relatively high tag still makes Unit 3 at 198 Allston the least expensive condo within an 11-mile radius of Boston, according to its listing broker, Frank Ventresca of Keller Williams Boston-Metro. It would appear that that is indeed the case, after a quick perusal of listings sites such as Estately and Zillow.

The condo is located in a three-unit building that has shared laundry. The HOA fee is $193. What’d you think?
