Depends . . . "OK" means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. I also don't know what the OP means by "easy access to the Seaport." Does that mean they want to be able to walk there? 10 minute commute? 20 minutes? No one said.

There are some nice buildings right downtown where you can get a small 1 bed or studio condo in the price range I mentioned.

I think there are plenty of options for a condo between 3-5 with a relatively easy commute to seaport. Of course the later part is subjective.

Default 400 or 500

Ok so if it was more in the 400's what would you suggest?

Not a lot to consider right now mainly because of the time of year, but the real estate world will come out of it's slumber in a month or so. There's one unit in the North End on Salem St in the mid-4's but that would be a long walk to the Seaport. Plus, it's on the 5th floor in a building with no elevator.

There are buildings with small units and some others that have low levels of owner occupancy where you could get something right downtown. If this is a pied-a-terre I can't imagine you want much space.

Let me zillow that for you..

Looks like Dorchester has some options in that range (Dorchester is not a no-go-zone these days). You can also check the near north shore (Chelsea as mentioned, East Boston, Revere). Quincy is probably the safest bet.

I think you might have to go up over 500k to start to see noticeably better places.
