It’s been over a year since we did a report on condo sales in Leavenworth. As of today’s date, 2012 is a much stronger year for condo sales than 2011.
Only 8 condominiums sold in Leavenworth through September of 2011, but 14 have closed so far in 2012. Condo sales in Leavenworth appear to be on par with 2010 when 15 condominiums had sold by this point in time.
We were pretty excited to share with you the news that a record number of Leavenworth homes closed in July. It turns out that August wasn't too shabby either. Fourteen homes sold in August which is pretty amazing compared to almost any month but July of 2012.
How do these numbers compare to recent records for home sales in Leavenworth and Lake Wenatchee? These two months were incredible.
The Leavenworth real estate market continues to show slow but steady signs of improvement in 2012. Leavenworth home prices for spring 2012 did increase from last year's horrible numbers and are similar to those in 2009 and 2010.
We no longer represent the owners of the Warm Springs Inn in Wenatchee.
Most folks know that prior to my career as a real estate agent that I worked as a park ranger for the National Park Service. Some folks know that I used to race bicycles growing up and coached a youth cycling team for a while as well. But few of my clients know the strong influence that the Boy Scouts had on me growing up.
People ask all the time what it's like living in Leavenworth Washington.
One of the real pleasures about small town living is how safe it is with very little crime and a great sense of community.
It's really pretty common for people to leave their doors unlocked here in Leavenworth. More than once when meeting with a homeowner to put their house on the market I have gotten a blank look when asking for a spare key to put in the lockbox.
