Davis Square Condos

Davis Square T Station

Davis Square T Station

Davis Square Condos   No doubt about it – Davis Square is a popular location for Somerville real estate buyers.  Davis has a Red Line T stop, the bike path, the Somerville Theatre, and plenty of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars.  There’s a liveliness to the square day and night.

The condominium styles available in the neighborhood are similar to options elsewhere in Somerville and Cambridge – units in converted two and three-family houses, in converted brick buildings – one from the 1930s, one circa 1960, lofts in former industrial buildings, condos in a converted school, and new or recently built townhouses.

In the last 12 months the average sale price for Davis Square condos was $462,504 and the median sales price was $429,500.  52 condominiums sold in the neighborhood (or at least those identified to be in the neighborhood by the listing agent – truth be told some stretch the location a bit and others fail to include the neighborhood designation in the listing entry) for sale prices from $145,000 to $893,000.

Currently 17 condominiums are listed for sale in Davis priced between $299,000 for a one-bedroom in a 15-unit brick building to $1,100,000 for an enormous condo in a converted church.  The median asking price per square foot is $388.
