Here are a few of quesions that blog readers asked.

Hi John,

I own a condo in a rowhouse in the South End which currently does not have any decks in the back of the building. All the members of the condo association are interested in having decks put on but I am not sure (a) how to find out if we have deck rights or (b) how and where to apply for deck rights. I have searched on the cityofboston website with NO luck. Any advice?

Ans – Contact the Boston Building Dept located at 1010 Mass Ave. Phone nummber is 617-635-5300 they will be able to ans both your questions.

2. What is the difference from the asking price to selleing price in the $400,000 to $600,000 range?

Ans: Based on MLS sales data of the last 6 months of sales in the $400,000 to $600,000 it breaks down as follows:

Average asking price: $499,599.00
Average selling price: $479,002.00

3. Can you please provide a history of South Boston condo sales price.
