We heart JP!! Great place to live & invest.

Here is a great crime website so you can actually search by street:

Here a few others (hand picked) to consider:
Just came on, unbelievable price and location, photo's will be up shortly but in nice condition (1 block to pond trails and a few to whole foods, JP Licks, city feed, ten table, etc etc):…

New to market today, pics up shortly, gut renovated large townhouse, great location:…

Fantastic space and price, nice interiors, walk to everything:…

A block from armory lofts, gym, parks and train. A lot of new construction going on right here, interesting investment opp:…

Here is everything for sale. The market is competitive so things are moving fast:…

Hope that helps!

I have lived around the corner from there for 30 (+) years. Raised my two children here. I think it is a fantastic neighborhood. If you want to talk to someone that doesn't just try to sell you a place in Jamaica Plain, but one how has and does live here give me a call.

Hi cnaughton,

A good launching point may be to contact the local BPD and ask for a crime report on the neighborhood and specific street for that matter. As a local JP Realtor, I can personally tell you that Wyman St has been one of the more diversely active streets for housing sales over the past several years (and much of the surrounding neighboring streets as well). Many condo conversions, new construction single family/townhomes, and larger developments have enhanced the landscape with sustained values ranging from the $300's up into the $700's. There are also many future commercial/community developments in the Jackson Sq. neighborhood that are sure to enhance the overall living experience and help with lacking local community services. As for your investment in a condo there, Wyman St has some great tangible attributes: beautiful historic homes, quality newer construction, walk to Hyde and Jackson Squares, Centre St shops, Whole Foods, and many parks and the Orange Line T.

If you have any additional questions, feel free to get in touch with me any time.
