With Bruce Willis filming his new movie called Surrogates outside, the Langham Hotel adjacent to Post Office Square played host to the much anticipated Broadluxe auction. The staff at Tranzon Auction Properties had run a very professional ship leading up to the auction, and they did not disappoint on the big day. At approximately 10:15 am in the morning, the auction got underway in front of a 100+ person capacity crowd, with the first several units selling at minimum bid prices. As more popular floorplans were introduced to the crowd, prices began to rise as high as $39,000 over minimum bid pricing.
Some of the interesting data points from the auction are as follows:
- Number of units sold: 29 out of 44 units were sold (66%)
- Average Sales Price per Square Foot: $494
- Neither of the two (finished) duplexes sold
- Neither of the two (unfinished) penthouse units sold
15 units do remain for sale (see auction details 118 KB PDF, those not highlighted in gray are still available), and they will eventually be listed in the Boston MLS. Note that on Tuesday, June 24, 2008, updated pricing was released for remaining units. For more information about submitting a post-auction offer on one of the remaining units, please contact us.
