The 200-square-foot condo that is Unit 1 at 26 Pinckney Street in East Somerville hit the sales market on Oct. 28. Its price made it far and away the least expensive home available for purchase in Somerville, a city ever more expensive as the Green Line (maybe) comes rolling in like some thundering siren of gentrification. That tag and the desirability of Somerville nowadays virtually guaranteed a fast trade—which is exactly what happened. Unit 1 was asking just $144,900 when it went to contract pretty much within hours of its listing. Stay tuned for the close. This is definitely one for the Sub-Quarter-Mill Club.
