SOUTH END - At more than $867 a square foot, the townhouse at 21 Holyoke Street not only claimed a modest sales record when it traded earlier this month, it carries with it historical significance: Martin Luther King Jr. was a dinner guest of the former owners.
HUB-WIDE - Attention! We break down the cheapest and the priciest areas to rent an apartment as of January 2013. The priciest? Downtown Boston. The cheapest? Eastie. Everywhere in between? Read on.

SOUTH END - Our David Bates crushes it re: the South End condo market since 2005, with statistical gems like this: 2,207 (52 percent) were two-bedrooms and only 436 (10 percent) were three-bedrooms.
