What does a budget of less than $500,000 get you in and around the city? Condos, mainly.

Sums of $350,000 and $450,000 aren’t exactly pocket change—they’d swing a sizable single-family home in the suburbs. But in Boston, there are plentiful small to medium-sized condos to be snatched up with this kind of money. Gems can be found in Dorchester, Quincy, and beyond.

Here, find five condos asking less than $500,000 right now.
