HUB-WIDE - There's one word that can move homes on the sales market in these parts. Simply put: “Stunning” had stunning results in July. More than 22 percent of listings described as “stunning” sold within seven days.
SOMERVILLE - It's no secret that the city has several apartments asking at least $5K a month. There are at least two asking a lot more than that, including this one at 1 Summer Street, a converted Gothic church with ceilings that, not surprisingly, soar like a phoenix rising from Arizona. The 3-BR, 3.5-BA, 4,295-square-foot triplex is currently Somerville's most expensive rental at $6,750 a month.
