Last week, UrbanTurf reported on the zip codes in DC and Northern Virginia where homes are selling the quickest in 2013.

Today, we flip the data, and take a look at areas where homes are staying on the market the longest. (To come up with fastest and selling zip codes, UrbanTurf used year-to-date data provided by RealEstate Business Intelligence.)

As the chart below reveals, the three slowest moving zip codes were all located east of the Anacostia River. Homes in 20032, which includes Congress Heights, took the longest to sell, at a median of 40 days. 20019, home to Deanwood, and 20020, home to Hillcrest, followed close behind. Other zip codes that populate the list are located in a variety of neighborhoods across the city, though. And, with the exception of 20037 and 20004, they tend to be located on the edges of the District.

Note: We only included a sampling of the neighborhoods associated with each zip code below.

We also looked at the slowest moving zip codes for the region. To limit our list, we stuck with zip codes within 20 miles of the center of DC. Interestingly, Maryland zip codes made up the majority of the list.
