Two areas that I have seen strong interest in over the past few years are waterfront homes and condos at Kahler Glen.
Waterfront homes range from cabins on Lake Wenatchee and Fish Lake to homes on the Wenatchee River or Icicle Creek. Currently there are only a handful of waterfront homes available in The Leavenworth area.
Kahler Glen condos have remained a hot commodity over the past two years. Certainly I remember 2004 when you couldn't give them away for $175,000, but 2008 is a different story. The last one sold in the spring of 2007 for $325,000 and I expect the next will be at least $350,000. Buyers always ask about other condominium options at Lake Wenatchee or Stevens Pass. The truth is that Kahler Glen has the only condos near Lake Wenatchee and no projects are scheduled in the area.
I am starting to add names to my list of buyers for both waterfront homes and Kahler Glen condos. Don't hesitate to ask to add your name as well, even if the inventory is limited right now. Conversely, homeowners please don't be shy about asking me to help you evaluate the market price of your home. I may even be able to sell your home without listing it on the MLS.
