Big Reveal: the New 2-BR in Somerville's Go-Go Union Square

This was close, folks, very close

Address: 197 Washington Street, #206

Price: $699,000

The Skinny: Wowza! By the slimmest of margins—32.55 percent to 32.16 percent—$779,000 beat the correct asking price in this voluminously voted-upon PriceSpotter.

The 2-BR, 2-BA spread sits within the newly developed, nearly sold-out 197 Union Square. The complex's name is no accident: The surrounding Somerville enclave is taking on quite a gentrified shine of late, due largely to the anticipation of the Green Line (someday) trundling through. That's probably what led so many to go so long on this one.
