(Update: the owner says the price hike reflects new improvements to the property, including a new roof, and that these photos are old.) House lingering on the market? Hike the price! This charming old house (built 1889) has been languishing unsold for quite a while now. While it's a nice property, near the beach and golf course, with almost half an acre of land (room for a pool), we don't see any reason to raise the ask. The house is pretty small at 1346sf, with three bedrooms and two full baths (one of which is off the kitchen), and could use some interior updates. There are plenty of original features, though, and the house is still relatively affordable at $649K, so quite possibly a buyer will be found soon.
