A condo with a $5 million view

One rarely sees homes in our neighborhood selling for less than $1 million, but it happened in June 2008 at 49 Service Street, a short block near Steiner and Lombard. A one bedroom single family home closed at $675,000, setting the bar for the lowest priced single family home sold in the area this year.  

At the other end of the chart, unit 9W at 2190 Broadway (above) is a very special northwest corner condominium with fantastic views from nearly every room. Even though it needs some updating, the unit closed for $5 million — more than $1.5 million over the asking price.
