You need at least a half a million dollars to buy a condominium in the proper Boston area for 2018. And to find those Boston condos are few and far between, given that the median price for a Boston condo, so far this year, was about twice that amount.

The least-expensive Boston condo on the market, which has the dubious distinction of being somewhat affordable, is 187 Beacon Street in South Boston. The listing broker describers the condo as:

Why rent when you can OWN?? Don’t miss out on this gem! Great starter condo at an affordable price! Lovingly maintained and located on the trendy west side, this one bed is perfect for someone looking to invest in their future instead of renting. Hardwood floors throughout which have just been completely refinished. The kitchen has granite counters and stainless steel appliances and room for a table. The recently renovated bathroom has a stunning oversized shower with gorgeous tile. Queen size bedroom and huge storage room in basement. Large private deck as well. 100% owner occupied building with good reserves. Walk to everything on the west side including restaurants, shops, grocery and the T! Don’t miss out on this gem!

There were just a couple of other Boston condo listings for sale between $400,000 and $499,000 in Charlestown. Examples: 45 Fist Ave. $449,000 and 134 High Street for $462,000
