My featured column in Curbed on November 27 discussed what it took to be amongst the highest over ask single family sales in nine predominantly condominium markets.

Out of 583 sales in Back Bay, Brookline, Beacon Hill, Cambridge, Charlestown, Jamaica Plain, Somerville, South Boston and the South End, you had to be  at least $100,000 over ask to make the top 50. To be in the top 25, you had to be at least $153,000 over ask and to be in the top 10, you had to be at least $251,000 over ask. And to be the #1 over ask sale in these markets, it took being $1.3 million over ask.
