When the anthropologists many, many years from now come and pick through the remains of the Boston real estate market circa 2015, they may likely be excited to find the fate of 18 Harris Avenue in Jamaica Plain. The listing makes crystal clear that the 3,400-square-foot Victorian in Sumner Hill is "in need of complete renovation/repair so please bring your contractor/designer & creativity." Nevertheless! Listed at $979,000 in early September, the 12-room house ended up going for a mint. In the end, 18 Harris went for a cool $900,000 in a deal that closed today. Stay tuned for this puppy's second act.
