Former MLB pitcher Jamie Moyer was a journeyman ballplayer in the truest sense. Over his 26-season career, he played for eight teams, including a ten-year stint with the Seattle Mariners. In a way, the asking price for his 7-BR home at 2550 40th Ave W in Magnolia is a lot like him. It's moved around a lot. A LOT.
Sited on a 1/3-acre corner lot, the 7,100 sq. ft. home comes with fancy appliances (including a SubZero), a built-in espresso bar, 1,500-bottle wine cellar, batting cage and a screening room. When Moyer was traded, the home hit the market asking $8.9M. In 2010, it dropped to $7.8M. By February 2012, it was down to $5.3M. And then it was chopped to $4.85M in October 2012. Now the home has been listed once again, this time all the way down at $3.595M. With an overall assessed value of just over $4M, we might finally be in a workable range for a buyer. Hope so for the Moyers, they've already come down a whopping 60% from the initial ask.
