Gut-renovated East Boston two-bedroom asks under $450,000

The condo hits a kind of trifecta in being effectively new, near the T, and in a range that many first-time homebuyers can afford

Unit 1 at 201 Marion Street in busy, busy East Boston hits a kind of modern Boston real estate trifecta. It’s effectively new—the product of a recent gut-renovation that left it with fresh appliances and central air and heat—as well as near the T (in this case the Blue Line’s Airport stop) and relatively affordable.

The 690-square-foot two-bedroom, one-bathroom with a patio is asking $449,999 through Popular Properties Realty’s Benjamin Bern. A washer-dryer is included in the price.

That asking pencils out to $652 a square foot. Both that per-foot price and the total tag are below the latest going-rate measures for Boston condos. The median condo sales price citywide was $700,000 at the end of January, according to the Greater Boston Association of Realtors. And the average price per square foot was $812. What’d you think?
