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.

“The housing market is really changing here,� said Rachel Burns, a broker with Jamaica Hill Realty. “But the neighborhood still has a gritty, hipster feel.�

Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Janet Deegan said first-time buyers who specifically want Jamaica Plain places often pick Hyde Square because of the lower prices.

“You get more for your dollar in Hyde Square,� Deegan said. “Similar properties near JP Center would be $30,000 to $50,000 more.�
