Inside North Yorkshire homes that won’t sell

Yorkshire is home to some truly beautiful homes.

However, some houses can be listed on the market for years without securing a sale.

Using Zoopla, we have uncovered properties which have been on the market for the longest.

Whether it’s the asking price or the questionable interiors, some of these York homes just haven’t attracted the attention of any buyers.

While they might have been on the market for a long time, these properties have a lot to offer- one of them could even be your next dream home.

Tom Parker, Consumer Spokesperson at Zoopla said: "If a property is taking longer than anticipated to sell, it often comes down to two factors: the asking price and the local market.

"We always recommend seeking advice from your estate agent to help drive the desirability of your listing - and being open to their feedback! If it's an issue with the interiors, it can pay dividends to clear the clutter and give the property a fresh lick of paint. 

"Other times, it really does come down to patience; providing a property is priced accurately, and clean and tidy in appearance, there's no reason it shouldn't find a buyer."

Take a look inside and judge for yourself why these houses haven’t been snapped up yet- would you ever be tempted to invest in any of them?
