Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Cambridge Houses Sold For $1,000,000+

Cambridge Houses Sold for $1,000,000+

The sale prices achieved in this spring’s bidding wars in the Cambridge real estate market are at times amazing.  It’s been a challenging market for buyers and for agents.  What price was right?  What did you have to offer to “win” – to prevail – to actually get an offer accepted?  It was often difficult to know and at times frustrating and even painful for buyers.

As those spring sales close we’re finally finding out just what clinched the deal for the houses that sold for over the asking price.    Let’s take a look at sales of Cambridge single family houses that sold for $1,000,000 or more over the last three months.  There’s a bit of an overlap with our last post, Cambridge Single Family Sales – Houses Priced Under $1,000,000 – since the houses that were priced at almost one million sold for quite a bit more.

Twelve of the twenty-one houses in this price range sold for over asking.  The premium paid ranged from $5000 to $1,300,000 over list price – from less than 1% to more than 30% over asking.  With numbers and ranges like that it’s no wonder that the Cambridge spring market was so challenging for many buyers.

In the list of Cambridge house sales that follows the room count – number of rooms / bedrooms /baths is included and if the house is attached to another, rather than free-standing, that’s noted as well.
