What are some reasonable expectations you should have if you are considering buying a Leavenworth house on acreage?
I studied the sales of all Leavenworth houses that sold in 2012 that sat on at least 1 acre or more. I excluded those waterfront properties along the Wenatchee and Chiwawa Rivers as well as Lake Wenatchee. Here’s what I found:
Median Sales Price: $357,000
Median Size: 1862 sqft
Median acreage: 1.4 acres
Lots of folks contact us when they are thinking about buying a Leavenworth house on acreage and are hoping for a small house or a fixer upper on a large parcel.  For the most part, that’s not really what’s for sale.
Instead, we see larger houses, mostly built after 1990, on lots between 1-2 acres.
More affordable homes are likely to be on the Chumstick Highway, often near the rail road tracks.
