Dorchester (July 2018)
How do purchase prices range across neighborhoods?
As of July2018 202July2018, the average asking price for Dorchester is $341 per square foot. However, the individual properties that comprise this average range from $162/sq.ft. (a 4,195 sq.ft. multi-family at 22 Drayton Ave. (Uphams Cnr.) asking $679,900) to $628/sq.ft. (a 953 sq.ft. 2BR condo at 9 Hallam St. #3 (Savin Hill) asking $599,000).

Why do we report price ranges as well as average price per square foot? We believe that this gives a more complete picture of the neighborhood's pricing. Specifically, a price range gives a sense of the bargains that may still exist in established neighborhoods, but which may be obscured by the average figure. And these ranges also give a sense of the upper end of pricing in emerging neighborhoods.
