And now the answer to this week's asking-rent guessing game.
Address: 1 Primus Avenue, #12
The Skinny: The vast majority of you, nearly 90 percent, thought this 1-BR, 1-BA near the Charles/MGH T stop was asking at least $3,000 a month. More than 27 percent of you thought the 530-square-foot spread, which comes furnished, was asking $3,500. Only 11.6 percent lowballed it to the correct rent. Easy to get this wrong, we suppose: The listing itself says to "Bring Offers," suggesting the possibility of hyper-competition in Boston's already hyper-crazy rental market.
