On April 12, 2017, 150 Lowell Street Unit 2 in the Spring Hill neighborhood of Somerville sold for $675,000 - $568 a square foot and $25,000 over the asking price of $650,000. This is a renovated 3-bedroom, 2-bath residence with 1,188 square feet of living area and one tandem parking space. The ten-foot ceilings here are very nice. Interestingly, this condo had previously been listed for sale (without selling) in the spring of 2016 for $749,000 and then $699,000. Clearly the new list price made the difference in 2017.
The Rand is a new construction 20-unit building at 1975 Massachusetts Avenue in Porter Square. Units here are now closing. On April 13, 2017, 1975 Mass. Ave Unit 206 sold for $700,000.
