We weren't exactly skeptical, but we were surprised early this year when new construction at 705 26th (5br/4ba, 4875 sq. ft.) was listed, during the framing stage, at $3.599M.
In a post in February, we tried to look at some comparable heights hit in past years. Mainly we saw similar new construction hitting $3.2M-$3.375M at the peak of the mid-2000s bubble.
Most of those homes we not near the plus-plus size of 705 26th, where the basement added about 1300 sq. ft. above the other properties.
Now, not only has 705 26th sold for asking price, its near-twin, developed at the same time on a (former) double lot, has sold for more.
That'd be 709 26th (5br/4ba, 5120 sq. ft.), slightly larger, and slightly pricier at $3.700M.
Not only are these sales numbers major…
