|There is a lot of |
competition for parking
spots in large cities.
Constantine Valhouli, co-founder of real estate research site NeighborhoodX, says the average parking space is between 170 and 200 square feet and the value depends on what neighborhood it is in. There are also different kinds of parking spots- off-street in a driveway or alley, garages, etc.
But going through data, one of the most expensive sales of a parking space Valhouli quoted was a space at the Brimmer Street Garage, known as a car condo, for $390,000. At 200 square feet, that's $1,950 a square foot. And a lot more than I've paid for any of the three homes I have purchased over the years.
Another spot sold for $305,000 in the affluent neighborhood of Back Bay and in the South End, prices recently have ranged from $50,000 to $88,000. Ouch. Just ouch.
