2013 Leavenworth Real Estate Statistics

It's finally time for our annual review of the Leavenworth real estate market and the 2013 Leavenworth real estate statistics.

As we expected, 2013 continued the positive trends that we saw in 2012.  The number of sales each year is going up significantly and with this increase in demand, home prices are starting to creep up as well.

For sellers or homeowners, this is welcome news - though buyers who were waiting to buy might be disappointed by the recent increase in prices or lack of choices.

The chart above shows average and median prices during the 4th quarter compared to past years as well as the total number of annual sales.

As you can see above, both the number of sales for the quarter (45) and the total number of sales for the year (138) are much improved over any year since 2006 - including 2007 which was a great year in Leavenworth.

The following chart shows us the totals for the whole year.

Leavenworth home prices Leavenworth home prices

 

Leavenworth home prices have finally started to go up in 2013.  The average home price for a single family home in Leavenworth was $378,000 which is up 12% from $335,000 in 2012. The median sales price in Leavenworth is up as well from $299,000 to $327,000.

What will 2014 hold for home prices and real estate activity in Leavenworth and Lake Wenatchee?

We expect the trends for demand and prices to continue to hold steady in the new year.  We are already starting to see a shortage of inventory in many price ranges and neighborhoods. From what we can see at this point, 2014 is probably a great time to sell your Leavenworth house if you are inclined to make a move.

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!
