This Leavenworth Mortgage Update is from Darel Ansley at People's Bank
The year has gotten off to a great start with mortgage and construction rates dropping as the fear of recession is pulling the stock market down. This of course makes Real Estate more affordable for the buyer. My prediction is that we will see some more bad economic news this month as more companies report their 4th quarter earnings, and this may pull mortgage rates down further.
This real estate blog has successfully been published for 3 years now and I am pleased at how it has slowly grown and matured. The blogosphere was young in 2005 when I first signed up for a Blogger account and jumped in the deep end of real estate blogging.
Earthquake in Leavenworth?

This Sunday, Jan 6th the Leavenworth Winter Sports club is offering free cross-country skiing.

Real Estate in Leavenworth in 2007 - in a nutshell, prices up, volume down. (While these numbers might change with an additional last minute recording or two, I think the trends will remain the same.)
I just received an email from my good friends at Lake Wenatchee State Park. They are now open for nordic skiing, snowshoeing and sledding. As was mentioned earlier, the Nason Ridge trails are closed this year. I won't post these updates weekly, but you can get these emailed directly to you from the park if you want.
(Please note that while the date below says December 10, I received it on the morning of December 8)
