Weekend open house tour: Under $400,000 in Roslindale and West Roxbury

View as Map

The first phrase that comes to mind about Boston real estate is "not affordable." More to the point, affordable in Boston can mean anything from $200K to upward of $1.8M.

This week's open house tour takes you to Roslindale and West Roxbury. While these neighborhoods may have their differences, what they both have in common is a refreshing affordability.

For well under $400,000, you can find yourself at least two bedrooms, modern amenities, and more space than you'll know what to do with.
