Since 1893, there have been only four owners of this house — now painted a pretty robin’s-egg-blue, set off by the butter-yellow abutter at No. 9. So the sales record paints a striking picture of steadily rising property values. Peter Joaquin paid $1,050 in 1893. Twenty-seven years later, Mary R. Rego paid $2,000 ($24,000 in 2016 dollars). Forty-two years after that, Carl and Leona Chapman paid $10,000 ($80,000 in 2016). Forty-three years after that, Beth Fidellow, Erin Long and others paid $835,000. Inflated to 2016 prices, that would place this little abode in the $1 million-plus stratosphere.
