Leavenworth 3 Bedroom Home Prices

After a recent post David wrote:

Hi Geordie.  Always enjoy reading your blog.  I was curious what the median/mean numbers were looking like for the year in the Leavenworth area, so was interested in this post. But I also wonder if you have data over the past 3-4 years on average "3 bedroom sales price" as a means of comparing apples to apples? I think you had quoted something like that back in '07 for Leavenworth.  I was also curious what you calculate as the % of initial asking price that sellers are averaging for sales in the current market, as another year over year trend.  Thanks for all your info!

The second question is tricky to get at because of the way the data is stored on our MLS, but info on 3 bedroom homes in Leavenworth is available.

Leavenworth WA home prices for 3 bedroom

Home prices for 3 bedroom homes in Leavenworth

 
* 2011 data is year to date as of Aug 5, 2011
 
The number of  3 bedroom homes sold in the Leavenworth area peaked in 2006 with 68 sold homes. The low was 2009 with only 33 homes.
 
Strangely enough, the peak pricing for 3 bedroom homes was in 2009 with an average price of $444,000 while the median price peaked at $349,000 in 2008.
 
2010 3 bedroom home prices were 24% lower than the peak average price  and 12% lower than the peak median price.
 
I find it interesting that prices continued to climb in the "post bubble years" (2008-2009) even though demand diminished greatly.
 
Any predictions about what the rest of 2011 will bring?

Geordie was great in every way. We have been looking in the Leavenworth area for some time, and Geordie was absolutely the best for local knowledge, history and depth on neighborhoods, developments and the local market trends. He was very quick to respond (even when he was on his vacation) and worked very diligently to get all of our questions answered in a very timely fashion. We would recommend him highly to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Very friendly, and helped us navigate all of the local options before we made an offer on the property that we purchased. Thank you, Geordie!

It was such a pleasure to work with Geordie and his wife, Allyson on our cabin purchase. They showed us a variety of locations, listened to what we wanted and helped us find the perfect match. Everything was smooth and not stressful, just relaxed and easy. We would definitely recommend Geordie and use him again if the need arises!
