In Greater Boston real estate, 2013 is becoming the year of the “over-ask” offer, so I compiled a list of the offers that went most over-ask in the first five months of the year. 

To compile the list I reviewed sales in  Brookline, Brighton, Cambridge, Somerville, Back Bay, Beacon Hill, North End, South End, South Boston, Jamaica Plain, Midtown, The Seaport District and Charlestown.

About 40%of the condos and single family homes that sold took over-ask offers. Some offers went way over-ask, some went way, way, over-ask and some made my Top 5 over-asks through May 31.

37 Beacon #63-64, Beacon Hill $2,300,000 $200,000
79 Chandler #9, South End $2,461,000 $166,000
