It doesn't take much nowadays to move an apartment in the Hub's go-go housing market. Still, every bit helps, we suppose. Take this 294-square-foot studio at 421 Norfolk Street, one of the few numbers in a changing-forever Somerville to trade for under a quarter-mill this spring. It explicitly touted through a listing photo its (relative) proximity to the annual Fluff Festival in Union Square as well as to "all the amenities of the hip surrounds." It was asking a mere $189,000 when it dropped at the start of April.
In the end, Unit 1A at 421 Norfolk took less than a day to find a buyer. Not only! It went for $42,010 over asking to close at $231,010. Oh, Somerville!
