One of Boston’s most authentic neighborhoods, the North End exudes old-world charm. Cobblestone streets, boutiques, Italian restaurants, bakeries and cafes characterize this historic area located north of the Financial District and east of Beacon Hill.
On Friday and Saturday nights, the streets come alive with people from far and near, especially during the summer. The North End is located next to Boston’s Waterfront and The Greenway. Also nearby is TD Garden, home to the Boston Bruins and Celtics.
As historic as the North End is, the neighborhood is witnessing a significant amount of new apartment construction, particularly near North Station, which offers residents full-service living and sweeping City & Harbor views.
The North End market showed minimal COVID impact during Q2 as year-over-year sales price declined 1% and market volume rose by 61% (8 units). The North End market is traditionally one of Boston’s most insulated from outside factors, with consistent supply and housing type (smaller multi-family condo).
The average price per sq/ft vs Q1 increased during Q2 by $5 to $888.
1 & 2 bed condos in the North End represent some of Boston’s best and most stable values at $903 & $915 per sq/ft, respectively.
As one of Boston’s oldest and smallest neighborhoods, prices have been historically stable despite the global pandemic due to the limited supply of active inventory
