A few days ago, we reported on the zip codes in DC and the larger metro area where homes are selling the quickest.

Today, we flip the data, and take a look at areas where homes are staying on the market the longest.

As the chart below reveals, homes in the 20019 zip code, which includes the Deanwood neighborhood, have been taking the longest to sell with a median number of days on market of 56. 20017 is a distant second, with a days on market metric of 38. 20037, which includes West End and Foggy Bottom, follows close behind. Perhaps the most interesting takeaway from the list is that the top 4 zip codes include some of the farthest east neighborhoods in the city and some of the western most.

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 entire region. As one might expect, most of these zips are quite far away from the center of the city, with Cumberland (136 miles) leading the pack.
