In the market for some new digs, but don't have a sky-high budget? Join the club—The Under 300K Club.


Staying in the thick of it all is pretty easy when living at 17th and Church Streets. A stone's throw from hotspots Komi and Hank's Oyster Bar, and easy stumbling from gay watering holes JR's and Cobalt is a junior one bedroom coop on the market for $229,000 in Copley Plaza. The monthly coop fees are $387. While the listing provides scant info on the square feet, the real prize to this listing is its location. But why spend time indoors when everything is right outside the front door? Exactly. And if the bar scene isn't your scene, there's always an option to bring someone to the roof deck to impress him or her with the views.

Yes, the square footage is only 354. (Does that make this a micro-condo?) And yes, the listing is on the terrace level, so eye-popping city vistas aren't going to make this sale. But the price for this Logan studio is an unbelievably low $244,900. And the condo fees in the amenity-filled Radius is only $189/month. The lofty listing has only been on the market for about a week. The place is turn-key ready, but expect to sleep in the living room. Perhaps, this place is really a pied-a-terre.

Coming in at a bit under 600 sq.ft., this one bedroom condo in Cleveland Park dropped onto the market a few days ago and is asking for $285,000. That works out to be a reasonable $479 per sq.ft. With lots of light and an airy feel, condo #205 will certainly attract a range of buyers, and it'll probably go into multiples since inventory in the neighborhood and price point is uber tight. For this Cathedral Court condo, monthly fees run $407 per month. But with that comes perks galore, including in-unit washer and dryer and a walk-in closet.
