$20 million Boston condos? Bring’em on!

Just a couple of days after posting Tiny house with great views for $40,000, I read this Why Boston can’t build ultra luxury condos fast enough article on Boston.com.

According to the article: “the new Four Seasons tower ( One Dalton) has opened sales office, with its 180 ultra high-end condos, some of which have the potential to break the $20 million mark, expected to go fast as well.”

One Dalton

By my calculation, the $20 million for one of these condos would buy 500 tiny houses, or 70 non-Boston condos at the 2015 Massachusetts median price of $285,000, or 5 oceanfront estates in Marblehead.

While the flood of new millionaires from technology and start-ups of various hues might make it less true today than it used to be that real estate was the most common way for people to become millionaires, there seems little doubt that the wealthy from around the world are investing that wealth in real estate in cities such as Boston, New York and London as both a safe haven and an asset play in an era of close to zero interest rates.
