Gibson Sotheby's broker David Bates sheds some perspective on the smallest 2-bedroom to trade in the tony 'hood in all of last year:
534 Beacon Street, #706: This was the smallest Back Bay two bedroom condo that found a buyer in 2011. It had million dollar views and a half million dollar sale price [$535K to be exact]. At 705 square feet, most may consider it “tiny,” but to some in Beacon Hill it might be palatial—as it was nearly two hundred square feet larger than the smallest Beacon Hill two bedroom sale which measured in at only 506 square feet. See? Relax, size is relative.
