Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a regular column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount (or thereabouts) in the Boston area. Is one woman’s studio another’s townhouse? Let’s find out! Next up is $375,000 in different Boston neighborhoods.
The 997-square-foot three-bedroom, one-bathroom Unit 1 at 20 Ripley Road also has central air and a washer-dryer. There’s also access to a back deck. The asking is $369,900, with an HOA of $171.
Unit 12A at 26 Commonwealth Terrace runs to 470 square feet, and includes one bedroom and one bathroom. The building has shared laundry; and there’s an in-ground swimming pool. The asking is $375,000 even, and the HOA is $363.
Staying in Eastie, this time on the waterfront, we find Unit 42 at 113 Sumner Street. It’s a 785-square-foot two-bedroom, one bathroom with central air and a washer-dryer. Income restrictions apply, though, as they often do with Boston condos this affordable. For instance, buyers must have under $100,000 in liquid assets, and it cannot be a one-owner household.
Unit A at 19A Business Terrace is a 1,458-square-foot condo with three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms; and is an excellent example of the sort of space buyers can get farther from Boston’s core (Hyde Park is the city’s southernmost neighborhood). The duplex is asking $369,900, with an HOA of $400.
