East Boston is gentrifying rapidly—a neighborhood that was once home to low-income immigrants is now attracting luxury buyers eyeing high-end lofts with skyline views. Money is dramatically changing Eastie block by block, but if you look closely, there are still a few bargains to be found.

Real estate analytics firm NeighborhoodX crunched the numbers to find the 10 most affordable homes for sale in East Boston, and identified listings asking between $199,500 and $389,900. The majority of the homes are pretty small—they range from 560 to 890 square feet—and command between $356 and $567 per square foot.

At $199,500, a one-bedroom unit in Orient Heights is the cheapest home for sale in Eastie right now. It’s a second-floor walk-up that’s been recently renovated. A few other units in Jeffries Point and on Eagle Hill appear on the list, including this charming sunny condo on Lubec Street. Many of the homes are within walking distance to the Blue Line, like this apartment at 76 Waldemar Avenue.

The most expensive home on the list, a $389,900 home on Boardman Street, is a sparkling new condo conversion with an updated kitchen, bathroom, roof, and siding. Interested in a slice of Eastie to call your own? Check out the complete chart below.
