There is a reason that 1-BR, 1.5-BA spread at the W Boston upped its price by $100,000: parking. After we wrote about the bump earlier this week (and casually attributed it to inter-building jealousy and a stove touted in the listing), a more knowledgeable tipster filled us in: Basically, the developer, SW Boston, added a parking space. A would-be buyer had reserved the unit, sans parking, at a price of $875,000. That buyer backed out of the deal, and the developer re-listed the 1,040-square-foot unit with a parking space. Voila the $975K tag! Makes sense, given the Thunderdome parking environment in this town.
