In this market, houses sell quickly - but not always. Congratulate these sellers on their patience or lend them a shoulder to cry on as their investments just sit there. We took a look through the listings to find some single-family homes that have been on Seattle's market for over a year. Something they almost all have in common, price tags over $1.8 million. Perhaps it's not surprising that there's a few crossovers from this and our most expensive listings map.Read More
Seven Seattle-Area Houses on the Market For Over a Year
In this market, houses sell quickly - but not always
1. 202 W Highland Drive (560 Days)
Seattle, WA 98119
As we said before; "With its underground parking, locking gate, pointed perimeter fence this $4,500,000 building on Queen Anne could be mistaken for a small, exclusive condo complex; but, it's not. In 2013, on a 3,208 square foot lot, they built a 3,578 square foot house with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and some very urban, modern styling."
2. 134 Huckleberry Lane (392 Days)
Shoreline, WA 98177
An Arthur Erickson 7,470 square foot mansion inserted among the trees and rolling terrain with views of forests and mountains has an asking price of $4.3M. The 4 bedrooms and 6 baths may not impress as much as the design, the pool, and the space, lots of space. You can do a lot inside, and then have 6.1 acres to roam around outside.
3. 1630 36th Avenue (615 Days)
Seattle, WA 98122
It is a storybook property, so well decorated that it may require a fantastic creatures to keep up with the painting and landscaping. Few properties have almost a third of an acre in Seattle. For $2,795,000, you get a 4 bedroom, 4 bath Victorian that seems quite at home in Queen Anne. Great, it that's your style and your dream.
4. 1910 NW 100th Street (533 Days)
Seattle, WA 98177
A William Bain brick home on Blue Ridge sits, watching the views and buyers go by. They're asking $1,998,000 for the 3 bedrooms, 4.25 baths, and 4,685 square feet. The interior is ornate, decorations that fill the space. The built-ins help define the place. A classic mirrored bar, anyone?
5. 2608 39th Avenue W (615 Days)
Seattle, WA 98199
Brick, chandeliers, and an in-ground swimming pool conjures images of an earlier era. It was built in 1924 on Magnolia and now has a price of $1,795,000. The 3 bedrooms, 4.25 baths, and 4,170 square feet are situated to enjoy a view over the city - a city that doesn't make houses like this anymore.
6. 5618 8th Avenue NE (584 Days)
Seattle, WA 98105
Finally, a house for under one million, $845,000. It is a Ravenna craftsman with enough bedrooms (8) and bathrooms (3) to be a boarding house. Somehow all those rooms fit into 2,310 square feet. With so many attractions within a short walk, maybe this is the right house for a lot of people who spend time outside the home, but like to live close to each other.
7. 12936 64th Avenue S (539 Days)
Seattle, WA 98178
The least expensive house on this list is in Skyway and listed at only $360,000. That'ss below the median price and still comes with 3 bedrooms, 1.75 baths, and 1,770 square feet. The lot's even a reasonable 9,045 square feet. What's holding back the buyers? Drop by and tell us.
