2012 Leavenworth Home Prices

It's time for our year end review of 2012 Leavenworth home prices.

Overall, 2012 saw continued improvement for the Leavenworth real estate market. We saw a huge uptick in volume of sold homes, both in the number sold and the total dollar value of those homes.

As you can see from this chart, 2012 was a big improvement from 2009-2011.

We are still seeing a little bit of softening of prices with both average and median 2012 Leavenworth home prices lower than in 2011.  The average  home price in 2012 was down to $336,000 which is down 5% from last year's average home price of $353,000. The median price is down as well, to $300,000 which is down about 2% from last year's $307,000.

As you might guess, the lower prices have a lot to do with the large number of homes selling. Low prices, along with interest rates under 4% and increased consumer confidence have brought buyers back into the Leavenworth housing market.

If we continue to have a large number of home sales like we did this summer and continue to see a reduction in inventory then I we will start to have some good news for home owners about increasing Leavenworth home prices. This might occur in 2013 or it might not, but the buyer's market in Leavenworth will likely come to an end at some point.

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!
