Welcome to this version of "New To Market," our look at a listing with a reader vote. Consider this an unscientific way to take the buying pulse of a wary public. Feedback and nominees to the tipline, please.
This 100-year four-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath craftsman is indeed lovely. The listing claims its been recently renovated and it's within Harvard Heights Historic Preservation Overlay Zone, also qualifying it for the Mills Act. This year the kitchen, mud room and downstairs bathroom have been redone, the deck was refinished and the listing tells us the roof is seven years old and the foundation has been reinforced. But is it worth almost double its sale price in 2002? Back in Oct 2002, the house sold for $490,000. Today's asking price: $899,000 or $295 a square foot. Listing is here.
