From the Boston Herald:

The housing meltdown has created opportunities for buyers previously priced out of Boston’s neighborhoods.

MLS Property Information Network lists 93 single-family homes for sale in Boston at $250,000 and under. The lowest price home is a three-bedroom “handyman special” on Condor Street in East Boston for $99,000. At the higher end is an eight-room Colonial in top shape for $250,000 on Evans Street in Dorchester.

Before the housing market went south last year, the explosive rise in home prices in Boston pushed buyers beyond Worcester and south to Brockton in search of affordable houses. Today, amid a national real estate bust, there are more options to live in Boston.

Do you think Boston is more affordable? Is it time to buy?
