Mandatory Zillow Discussion

Will Zillow revolutionize the real estate industry? That's the question that seems to have surpassed all the bubble babble these past few months.

For those that don't know, Zillow is a website that claims to help home owners price their home using sophisticated computerized pricing analysis. Really it's just an attempt for the website to get their share of real estate agents marketing dollars.

The Stats are In- My Clients Make Money!!

I have just ran some annual stats for 2005. The average buyer I represented in 2005 bought a house listed at $316,425 but I helped them buy it for $301,862. In a sellers market where mulitple offers are common, I SAVED THEM $14,563 on average.

My sellers were well represented too. On average my listings sold for merely $381 less than asking price. My land listings all received multiple offers and I sold them at $6500 above asking price.

Should you list this Fall?

Homeowners often tell me they are thinking of listing their house in the Spring. Why wait?

Right now there are lots of frustrated buyers who tried to find something this summer, but couldn't. There's not many options for buyers, so sellers can get top dollar for their property.

There will be lots of competition come Spring. Don't wait for the crowds, call me to sell your house TODAY!

Multiple Offers

This is a hot market and I am finding myself representing clients in multiple offer situations more and more. I can think of 7 instances recently where this occured. Only once has my client not received the property they were hoping for. As a buyer, you should be prepared to act quickly and decisively. Get pre-approved from your lender before you start looking. If you like something you see, be prepared to put an offer on the table. Plan on paying asking price for a property unless special circumstances apply. As a seller, it is a great position to be in.

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!

Moving to Leavenworth?

Are you looking for a cabin or a condo in Leavenworth that your family can use as a home base when climbing, skiing or hiking around Leavenworth or Lake Wenatchee?

Maybe you rent a house here and have decided to stay, surprised how a summer of rafting somehow turned into seven years.

Maybe you bought a condo years ago, don’t seem to use as much, and it’s time to sell.

Whatever your motivation, we are here to help. If you are buying a home, the best place to start is with our Homebuyer’s Guide to Leavenworth.
