The Herald has an in-depth profile of Jamaica Plain’s Hyde Square neighborhood.
Professionals … are flocking to cleaned-up Hyde Square, a north Jamaica Plain neighborhood centered around the retail area at the intersection of Centre, Perkins and Day streets.
Newly restored two-bedroom condos in former multifamilies are selling for $325,000 to $350,000 these days, up from only about $250,000 two years ago.
â€œThe housing market is really changing here,â€? said Rachel Burns, a broker with Jamaica Hill Realty. â€œBut the neighborhood still has a gritty, hipster feel.â€?
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerageâ€™s Janet Deegan said first-time buyers who specifically want Jamaica Plain places often pick Hyde Square because of the lower prices.
â€œYou get more for your dollar in Hyde Square,â€? Deegan said. â€œSimilar properties near JP Center would be $30,000 to $50,000 more.â€?
