Why now? Why not? We're in the home stretch, dear readers. And we've got, courtesy of stats from our pals at LINK Boston, the 12 most expensive condo sales in Boston proper in 2012, through Nov 26. The price of admission was $4,500,000, and the topmost was $10,300,000 (the map-point numbers correspond to a sale's rank among the dozen). A few things: The vast majority of these sold only after their asking prices were drastically cut, sometimes by more than $1M; and all but one traded for more than $1,000 a square foot (one, No. 3 on our map, traded for more than $2,000). Update: Also, they would all be dwarfed by the big townhouse sales of the year, including 15 Commonwealth Avenue for $12.5M and 3 Louisburg Square for $11M. Enjoy.
