Houses for Sale in South Boston MA That are Getting Noticed

There's no doubt that the luxury condos beginning to pepper the South Boston landscape are hitting all-time highs. In fact, the median price of a condo in this area is $790,000 up 16 percent from last year, says The Boston Globe. It's even higher for a high-end, full-service building, which jumped twice that fast to more than $2 million. This is part of a broader market that's being fueled by young professionals, suburban empty-nesters, and even some international buyers, all of whom are being enticed by the city's burgeoning job base and urban life.

That being said, it's not just the condos that are propelling South Boston to new heights. The houses are also contributing to this spike in interest, although the market still has a long way to go. The prices of houses for sale in South Boston MA dipped slightly last year although pending sales increased, which is also a good indicator of growth. The median price of homes in the pending sales category decreased by a bit more than two percent last year to $308,750, but that was a jump of 75 percent in February compared to the year before, according to Boston.com Real Estate. That represented the highest number of pending sales for the month of February since 2004.

Home values throughout Boston are expected to bump up by a percent and a half over the coming year, but last year that dip extended to the most exclusive addresses in Greater Boston, including Lexington, Concord, Weston and Lincoln. Some experts are optimistic about home prices rising due to a shortage of homes for sale in South Boston and the surrounding area.

Houses to Keep Your Eye On

The popularity of this area is growing year over year. After all, you have quick, close access to the city, dependable transportation, and a rich history built on Southie Pride. It's no surprise that there are many homes for sale here. The real estate market here consists mainly of traditional triple-decker homes, many of which have been converted into condos over the years. There's also an influx of newer, luxury residential projects infiltrating the area, from the Units at 150 West Broadway to the Signal Lofts to the Macallen. There are plenty of single family homes for those looking to raise kids here, meeting a variety of budgets.

Right now, home prices are ranging from $229,900 to $1,700,000, with sizes jumping from 456 square feet to 3,295 square feet. Southie's natural allure lies in its surroundings. Just take a look at the waterfront, home to Castle Island and some of the top-rated local beaches. You can run, walk, jog, hike and picnic here, as well as learn all about the Revolutionary War fort that sits on Castle Island.

With Logan Airport just 10 minutes away and the West 4th Street Bridge connecting residents to Newbury Street, more and more people are investing in homes in South Boston. There's little doubt that the proximity to the city proper is a major draw for people looking to put down roots. And with MBTA bus routes and Silver Line service to South Station forming the backbone of the city's commuting options, houses for sale in South Boston MA will continue to rise.

    Red Carpet Real Estate: South Boston Condos Bringing the Celebrity Treatment

    Boston's Back Bay and Beacon Hill have historically laid claim to the highest price tags for condo living in the entire city. While that's still true, now there's a new kid in town and it's called South Boston. Luxury condos like The Austin at 205 E Street, 150 West Broadway and 170 West Broadway are forming the heart of Boston's hottest neighborhood. Southie has grown up with a somewhat tough past but it's starting to reform fast and furious. Not only is this area bursting with new residential developments and opportunities, it's rolling out the red carpet to give residents the celebrity treatment.

    Now it's no longer a question of can you afford to live in South Boston, but can you afford NOT to? While the luxury condo prices are certainly high -- approaching a cool $700,000 and up to over a million in some instances -- the prices are starting to rival the likes of Southie's older and more sophisticated cousins, the Back Bay and Beacon Hill. Of course, they have a long way to go to reach the prices of the Back Bay -- some of which top out at a cool $15 million.

    Now, those have long been coveted addresses for the city's elite, but now with the likes of high-end South Boston condos for sale, this location gives singles, professionals, up and comers and even progressive families the chance at an elite Boston address without the crazy price tag. Still, $700,000 is nothing to sneeze at. It's still much more than Allston and East Boston, with condo prices averaging $422,000 and $416,000 respectively, according to Boston.com.

    Features of the South Boston Condo Scene

    Featuring up-scale bars, coffee houses, boutiques and condos, South Boston is starting to adopt a more sophisticated look and feel. According to The Boston Globe, the city is seeing median single-family home prices of $680,000 and condo prices of $632,000 representing a 70 percent change since 2011. That makes this a growing, ideal market for Boston area developers. One such example is The Austin at 205 E Street, with units starting at $699,000 and hitting $1.1 million. These two three-story buildings will comprise 34 luxury condos with floor plans of one-, two- and three-bedrooms to choose from. Each comes with two parking spaces. From Thermador appliances and quartz countertops/backsplashes to custom cabinetry and Hans Grohe fixtures, residents will be living in the lap of luxury here.

    Then, there's 150 West Broadway and 170 West Broadway, that also offers luxury living at a premium. 170 W. Broadway comprises 33 luxury condos with high-end kitchens featuring quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances. 150 West Broadway boasts 24 luxury condos,  31 parking spaces an elevator and common terrace.

      Having a Realtor in your corner who not only knows the ins and outs of the real estate industry, but the South Boston neighborhoods as well are key. Even further than that: you need real estate agents who know firsthand the luxury condo market in South Boston. Without that local touch, how can you trust the recommendations, skills, and experience of your realtors in South Boston? It's even more important than ever, as South Boston is starting to surge with new properties aimed at the up and coming professional.

      Here, at Home Town Brokerage, we know South Boston. Our agents have the experience and tenacity to connect you with the property you want. Browse our Agent Bios and check out our featured listings. You'll see just how much experience we all have buying and selling condos and homes in South Boston, particularly Guy Assetta, senior agent. He has more than 17 years experience in the custom home building and remodeling industry.  Guy is a 3rd generation builder. He started out as a child watching his grandfather and father, who were builders.  As a teenager, Guy worked in the shop of the family business, Assetta Construction, because he was not yet old enough to be on site. When he turned 18 he worked out in the field. However, his father wanted him to go to college so he left the family business to get a degree in engineering. Guy quickly discovered that his heart was not in it and went back to work for the family business. In 1999, Guy enrolled in the North Bennet St Schools carpentry program. At North Bennet, Guy learned the finer details of Carpentry and home building. When he graduated, this time he did not return to the family business, rather he went to work for S+H Construction of Cambridge, MA. At S+H, Guy worked with some of the finest craftsmen in the industry restoring and modernizing the grand old Victorian homes of Cambridge. After many years there, Guy and a fellow carpenter went out on their own to start a construction company. The company ran successfully for 5 years until the two partners went in separate directions. That is when Guy started out in South Boston, buying a three-family home that he converted into the highest quality and highest priced per square footage condominium in South Boston at the time. He has successfully remodeled and converted a variety of buildings into condos since then, creating Home Town Brokerage in 2009 with partner Ryan Sullivan.

      After starting Home Town Brokerage Guy And Ryan realized that there's a real need for guidance in the buying process.

      The South Boston Condo Market: "We're in the Know"

      Going in alone, in terms of buying into a whole new neighborhood can be daunting to say the least. You need someone to enlighten you about the current state of the real estate market here. You may already know that luxury condos are starting to become a mainstay of the South Boston landscape. You may even know that the prices -- and indeed quality -- of those condos are hitting all-time highs. Just like its neighbor East Boston, South Boston is seeing condo prices that are leading house prices by a wide margin, says Curbed. You can snag a condo in this area for about $790,000 up 16 percent from last year, says The Boston Globe, but even more for a high-end, full-service building which is fetching $2 million a unit.

      Appealing to an audience comprised of young professionals and even suburban empty-nesters, these condos are beckoning these groups with an improving economy, growing job market and more affordable urban life than the city proper. That's not to say the houses are slowing down. WBUR says that since 2011, nearly 22,000 units have been completed or permitted, mostly in central or South Boston. While the prices of houses for sale in South Boston, MA took a bit of a hit last year, pending sales increased -- an excellent marker for growth.

      Home values throughout Boston and its outer neighborhoods like South Boston are expected to increase by even more over the next year. You can rest assured Home Town Brokerage will keep you posted! Call our South Boston Realtors at Home Town Brokerage at 617-877-1479 to learn more.

            Washington Village at 235 Old Colony Avenue, South Boston

            South Boston is gearing up for a new luxurious mixed-use community, Washington Village. Located in Andrew Square, Washington Village will provide a trendy work, live, and play balance that is sure to please.  Mixed-use facilities are the newest trend in real estate development. As we continue to observe lifestyle changes, we’re seeing more small family units, an increasing need for less time commuting to and from work,  and even an increase in office camaraderie activities. These lifestyle changes across communities nationwide play a huge role in the recent mixed-use facility trends. The addition of Washington Village to South Boston, comes as no surprise.

            Historically, this area was once home to an Irish Catholic working-class community since the Irish first migrated to the area due to a famine in Ireland. In recent years, the neighborhood has transformed and now attracts a diverse group of people due to its public transportation access and proximity to downtown.  Today, the neighborhood is most commonly known as Southie. Its latest addition, Washington Village, will fit in perfectly with local residents, young professionals, and families.

            Washington Village is planned to include 656 residential units consisting of condos and rentals. These housing units will include floor plans ranging from studio to three bedrooms. 110 of those housing units will be affordable housing units for middle-class families. In addition, Washington Village will also include a grocery store, cafes, a pharmacy, other retail stores and much more. The building will boast a total of 648 parking spaces above and below ground for residents and visitors, and a whopping 45,000 square feet of outdoor space for get-togethers, picnics, meetings, and more. The entire complex will consist of eight buildings and the tallest building will reach as much as 22 stories high.

            The planning for such a large endeavor comes at the heels of the Boston Redevelopment Authority’s new endeavor along Dorchester Avenue.  Nestled among Dorchester Street, Old Colony Avenue, and Dorchester Avenue, Washington Village will add to an already perfect mix of restaurants, shops, and public transportation.

            Washington Village will bring in a large influx of new residents and visitors to the South Boston Neighborhood. The addition of affordable and luxury condominiums will attract a diverse mix of like-minded individuals.  Washington Village will support a community of shopping, dining, working, and living which will bring a refreshing aesthetic to an area that has been almost forgotten.

            In an excerpt from their Facebook page, Washington Village reveals their hope to promote a spirit of community...

            “We are a transformative community in the heart of South Boston. Our vision includes a central meeting place with a range of programming, where longtime area residents and new residents alike can meet for coffee, buy fresh produce at a farmers market, ice skate, attend a car show or an art show. Join us as we create a modern village where neighbors are genuinely connected to each other.”

            Construction on Washington Village is set to conclude in 2021 and we are looking forward to seeing the completed project.

                Benefits of Living in South Boston

                Mix a wealth of history and tradition with an urban eclectic feel and you get South Boston. ‘Southie’ as the locals affectionately call it, is a desirable residential neighborhood and a treasure in its own right. Here’s why…

                Tucked away to the south and east of the Fort Point Channel and abutting Dorchester Bay, South Boston features a vibrant arts community that is sure to please. Fort Point is an area that was once filled with warehouses, but currently is home to an abundance of art studios occupied by the city’s greatest creative minds focusing on individual art, community arts projects, and collectives. When you travel further in to the waterfront, you’ll find the distinct cube-shaped building of ICA Boston, a home for cultural events and free concerts.

                In addition to the arts community, South Boston also touts a rich history. It was right here in Dorchester Heights, now a national park, where George Washington’s army set up a cannon to force the British out of Boston in 1776.  Additionally, Edgar Allan Poe was stationed at Castle Island for five months in 1827 and was inspired to write The Cask of Amontillado based on an early Castle Island legend.

                Once a predominantly Irish Catholic neighborhood, Southie now attracts many types of people from families to young adults.  South Boston’s newest developments of hotels, restaurants, and shopping surround the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC) making it a very lively area day and night.

                The magic of South Boston attracts more than just young adults and families. Leprechauns and revelers are attracted to the area every year for the famed St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Film crews have even flocked to the area for productions such as The Departed and Good Will Hunting to partake of the beauty South Boston exudes.

                Southie has historically been a staple in Boston and will continue to be a major part of Boston’s neighborhood network in the future. Ongoing renovations to the area will go on to provide appeal such as street repaving, recently replaced traffic island that was nearly dilapidated, and park remodeling. For example, Medal of Honor Park has recently undergone a multi-million dollar renovation including new walkways, and a new playground and splash pad for nearby families to enjoy.

                Did we mention the waterfront?  Historically this area was a marshland, however, at the turn of the 20th century, the South Boston Waterfront has seen a burst of redevelopment to include residential spaces, modern offices, hotels, retail space and restaurants.   

                Last but not least, South Boston can enjoy its proximity to Downtown Boston. Easily accessible public transportation lends a quick commute of only 15 minutes making this neighborhood a hot area for those working and doing business in downtown.  

                 

                Community Centers located throughout the area offer a wealth of family centered programs, volunteer opportunities, coordination with the arts community and many other activities for local residents.  


                We are proud to feature South Boston as our primary territory and we’re always eager to learn about what’s going on in our community. Make South Boston your home today by contacting us.
