My Metrics - Leavenworth Real Estate Edition

Despite the so called "death of print media" we still subscribe to a number of magazines in our household. I enjoy Fortune magazine and one of the regular columns they have is called "My Metrics".   Each issue, some analyst or economist shares a hidden secret about some number that they use to determine how the economy is doing or how a specific business is doing.

I thought I'd share with you a metric that I think is key to understanding the health of the Leavenworth real estate market. 

It really boils down to this...

The End of Condo Financing in Leavenworth?

 We have been hearing about clients avoiding condos because they are "impossible" to finance. At least one local agent has been spreading around this rumor.   To help us learn more about financing condos, we asked Darel Ansley of Peoples Bank in Wenatchee to set the record straight.

Darel, there are rumors going around Leavenworth that it’s impossible to get financing for a condominium… is this true?

Leavenworth and Lake Wenatchee - Blogs and Newsletters

I recently discovered a few new neighborhood blogs and thought it would be good to list all the different places online that folks can get information about neighborhoods around Leavenworth and Lake Wenatchee that they might be interested in buying in.

Please let us know if your neighborhood has a blog or newsletter we should add.

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!
