2014 Leavenworth Home Sales

2014 Leavenworth home sales didn't break any new records, but it was another solid year.

The total number of single family homes that successfully closed in Leavenworth in 2014 was 122 . This is slightly down from 138 in 2013, but much improved over the recession years of 2008-2011.

Pricing is slightly down as well.  The average single family home sold for $350,000 which is down from $378,000 in 2013. The median home price however was stable at $326,000.

As we have repeated throughout the past year, inventory remains the big challenge in the Leavenworth real estate market like it is in many markets.

It is a bit of a chicken vs the egg dilemma. Which comes first, the home buyers or the home sellers?  Many buyers are waiting for more homes to come on the market in Leavenworth to choose from and many sellers are waiting for higher prices to return.

Many homeowners are still underwater and owe more than their home is worth, so motivation may be low to sell their home at a loss.  Looking at the chart, we can see a big discrepancy between pricing in 2007 and pricing in 2014.

Buyer demand remains strong for both condominiums and single family homes.  Interest rates at 4% and lower coupled with a mild winter point towards another very strong real estate market for Leavenworth in 2015.

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!
