In early March, we told you about the price-chop that made this 380-square-foot studio at 386 East 8th Street the only listing in South Boston asking less than $200,000. Newsflash: There are now no Southie listings on sale below that amount. Changing-est neighborhood ever, anyone?
Unit 1 was originally listed in February for $215,000; then the seller cut the price later that month to $199,990; then again in late March to $190,000. It finally traded for $168,000 in a deal that closed Friday.
