Mystery Leavenworth Real Estate Listings

Admit it, when it comes to looking at online real estate, you are a bit of a geek.

It's ok, you're not alone. Hardly.

Ever notice that sometimes a house that was on the market a few months ago, comes back on the internet, only to disappear again the next day?

Here's the likely scenario, which usually happens in the spring.

Every fall and winter, Leavenworth real estate listings  go off the market. Some expire because they were listed 6 months previously and the sellers have given up. Some have planned expirations and the sellers plan to try again in the spring.  Some sellers cancel their listings due to winter weather and decreased buyer traffic.

Because of the winter weather, lots of sellers pull their houses off the market for the winter months in Leavenworth.

Shoveling is hard work!

 

But when is the right time to put a house back on the market?

It's April and there is still snow on the ground in some places in Leavenworth, and there's still lots of snow at Lake Wenatchee

Yet, homebuyers start contacting us about looking at houses as soon as January 2!

After searching the available inventory, sometimes we real estate agents have to get creative and we start looking at houses that expired or were withdrawn the previous fall. Sometimes, we find the perfect house for our buyers, even though it wasn't listed on the internet.

Viola! The house comes on the market as a "new" property and instantly is marked as "pending" and goes off the market.

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!
