Leavenworth House For under $100,000

Yep, some things are too good to be true.

There have been a handful of properties over the years that would loosely fit that definition, but I have never seen a house that is inhabitable and that a bank would loan money on, for under $100,000 in Leavenworth WA.

Most consumers start their home search  these days on the internet.  It's pretty common to think that you might have stumbled upon a great deal   that no one else has seen. I guess it's possible, but there are a lot of folks looking at houses on the internet. Just on this website alone, we get between 1200-1500 visits a month of people looking at the homes on the MLS.

It's pretty common that we tend to get lots of requests about the same properties over and over again. If the price just seems too good to be true, the house might be:

  • Underneath the Bonneville Power Administration high voltage line
  • Next to the Burlington Northern railroad tracks
  • A former meth lab or drug house
  • Within earshot of U.S. Highway 2
  • Not accessible by car in the winter
  • On U.S. Forest Service "leased" land with an annual rent
  • One or more levels has less than 8 foot (or even 6 foot) ceilings

This is why Allyson and I try and preview houses  on  a regular basis. Most folks buying a home, whether as their primary home or as a vacation home, don't want to buy something in poor condition or in a poor location.
We all love a good deal, but nobody is willing to pay for junk.

As “west siders” looking for a getaway near Leavenworth, Geordie provided insight … his knowledge of design features important in a “snowy winter wonderland” was appreciated. Thanks Geordie!

Geordie made this somewhat complicated transition easier for us…going above and beyond to help us work through issues that came up during the sale of our parents home. We appreciated his knowledge, attentiveness to details and his willing spirit.
Our family is grateful for Geordie!

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!
