While Under Contract often illustrates how quickly listings get snapped up off the market, this installment revisits two recently featured listings which took a smidge longer to find buyers.

Eighteen Days for Rowhouse with English Basement

Including solar power and internal and external sound system wiring, this Shaw rowhouse spent 18 days on the market before going under contract. The open main level leads with a living room with a wood-burning stove, sharing a brick accent wall with the dining area. On the other side of the stairwell, the kitchen has a breakfast bar island and custom cabinetry with a concealed fridge, while a sitting area beyond has glass doors out to the rear patio and a two-car parking pad. The owner's bedroom has a minibar and a custom closet/hall to the en-suite bath with heated floors, frameless glass rain shower and a tub beneath a skylight. The house also has a separately-metered one bedroom basement apartment with polished concrete floors, radiant heating, exposed brick walls and a washer/dryer.

One Price Adjustment for this One Bedroom

This bright, spacious one bedroom unit sits a block from Lincoln Park and is full of unique finishes and flourishes. An archway off the entry hall introduces the living room which has a floor-to-ceiling shelving unit. An extra-wide archway on the other side of the room delineates the dining area from the kitchen with its honeycomb saltillo-tiled floors, marble countertops, glass subway tiled backsplash, open shelves at the corners, and glass shelves mounted in front of a deep window. The angular bedroom has four windows and an archway framing a triangular bonus area with two closets, and the bathroom houses laundry and linen closets. The listing price was dropped by $14,100 before the unit went under contract about two weeks after hitting the market.
