How much does a three-bedroom condo cost in a concierge elevator building in Cambridge in 2016?
Year to date in 2016 (through December 11, 2016) MLS reports five 3-br sales in concierge elevator buildings in Cambridge. (No additional 3-br sales are pending.) In case you were wondering, there were no 4-br sales in 2016. In 2015, MLS reported just three 3-br sales in concierge elevator buildings in Cambridge.
For the five closed 3-br sales in Cambridge concierge elevator buildings in 2016 reported in MLS:
Average sale price $2,932,800 in 2016 (up from $1,843,333 in 2015, a 38% increase)

Sale prices ranged from $1,010,000 to $7,100,000.
The sale event at 975 Memorial Drive for $7,1000,000 is an outlier. If we put this one sale aside, for the other four 3-br concierge building sales in 2016:
Average sale price $1,891,000 - nearly the same as 2015.
Average sale price per square foot $1,101 - still a big jump up from 2015.
