God's Recent Real Estate Deals; Boston Sales Over $10M

HUB-WIDE—The Boston archdiocese is trying to make its hold on former properties immortal: "Scores of sales over the past several years come with deed restrictions that prohibit the use of the buildings or land for abortion clinics, abortion counseling services, stem cell research, euthanasia counseling, and birth control advice." [CommonWealth]

BOSTON—Broker John A. Keith (he's everywhere today!) reads the $10M tea leaves: "[J]ust seven properties have sold for more than $10 million during the past 13 years (and, therefore, presumably, ever). (This doesn’t include any direct sales, however, where buyer and seller may have closed the transaction without the assistance of real estate agents.) Three of these were single-family homes and the other four were condominiums, three being resales at the Mandarin Oriental." [John A. Keith]
