Today we got a feature on the front page of the Boston Globe Real Estate section on what you can get in the city for under $300,000; otherwise known as the affordable market. Our new friend Kate Jackson who is a Boston Globe Correspondent gave a buzz last week to dig into the sub $300,000 condo market and we were actually surprised with the overwhelming results. Accordig to MLSPIN which is the Boston MLS there were 155 downtown condos for sale under $300,000 which caught us by big surprise.
Kate picked out a few good ones that are featured in the Boston Globe story here.
But here are some Boston Condos under $300,000 that caught our eye:
7 Hereford Street – $299,000 (Back Bay)
42 Eighth Street – $299,000 (Charlestown Navy Yard)
24 Mystic Street – $299,000 (Charlestown)
42 Eighth Street – $279,000 (Charlestown Navy Yard)
461 Park Drive – $279,000 (Fenway)
115 Salem Street – $279,000 (North End)
686 Tremont Street – $279,000 (South End)
The list goes on and on and out of the 155 downtown Boston Condos for sale under $300,000 there is even more when you start to look at the non-downtown Boston neighborhoods like, Allston – Brighton, East Boston, East Cambridge, Dorchester and even Jamaica Plain.
Bottom line is that…like many of us thought you need to be at the $450k price point and up to own downtown….well the fact of the matter is that it is not true and some downtown condos and even in luxury downtown building – you can own for under $300,000!
Start your MLS Search for Boston Condos (and select Min – $300,000 for the results)
Just for fun – Here are some other things you can buy for $300,000
1. Black Diamond smartphone, a handset that’s gained publicity not because of its feature set (WM5, 400MHz CPU, WiFi, quad-band GSM) or its design, but thanks to a $300,000 bank-busting pricetag and an exclusive five unit manufacturing run.
3. About 75 hours on your own personal NetJets Private aircraft.
