The Skinny: This 2006 remodel of a 1936 brick Laurelhurst home hit the market in April and needed to chip away at its ask three times before someone finally said yes. It ended up selling for $200K more than it was purchased for in 2006. Lots of nice nooks, coves and sitting rooms tucked away throughout the home.

The Skinny: "This home has an elevator!" You'd have thought that would have made it a quick sale. Almost. The house was pending after a month on the market but ended up re-listing at lower prices twice after that. It was until September when it went into final pending. The new owners now get to enjoy a lower-level rec room with wet bar, wine cellar & home theater as well as the detached studio out back.

The Skinny: There must've been a pretty good & pretty quick bidding war for this place. Listed on September 15, it was pending a little over a week later and ends up selling for $182K over ask. Bright and cheery throughout, this restored 1909 charmer features an Inglenook fireplace, restored light fixtures and a large kitchen with double French doors that open to the back deck, yard and patio.
