Life can be pretty good in the Back Bay if you have the kind of money to buy Tom and Giselle's $10.5 million Back Bay crash pad.
If that's too rich for your wallet, breaking a million just might get you something half decent, but no guarantees.
But is it worth it trying to squeeze into a closet-sized condo in the Back Bay - or for that matter the South End or Beacon Hill - if you can't go above $500,000, let alone $1 million?
That's the world shaking question Trulia explores in an in-depth blog post on the Boston market.
Trulia points to a 263 square foot condo a few blocks away on Beacon Street as an example - it's yours for $225,000.
In fact, the median condo in the Back Bay or Beacon Hill on the market for under $500,000 is not much bigger - 536 square feet.
If you can afford more than half a million, but can't break a million, the picture improves a bit, but not much: the median condo in this price range in the Back Bay and Beacon Hill is just 770 square feet.
So why not simply go and buy a whole house in Roxbury or Hyde Park, where $250,000 will get you the real deal?
