I just reviewed the registry of deeds.
The doc that is recorded just prior to this deed is in fact a trust as Richard suggested.
The owner appears to have deeded the property to a trust where the owner is the trustee.
The parts of a legal transaction are offer, acceptance and consideration, thus the dollar is the necessary consideration.

It's not a sale. It's either a change of ownership between family members or change in the ownership from individual to a trust.
