The 3-BR, 2.5-BA Unit 1 at 40-48 Vaughan Avenue in the Roxbury-Dorchester borderlands took 141 days to officially trade, a veritable eternity in the Boston housing market nowadays. An odd thing, too, given the 1,966-square-foot spread's proximity to the Fairmount Line and the low-ish $95 condo fee. Also odd given that the original listing price of $249,000 was chopped by 10 grand in November.
In a deal that closed right before St. Patrick's Day, the condo sold for $242,000. In other words, it went for over the last asking, thereby keeping with at least one trend in Boston real estate.
