Wenatchee, Washington Still Hot

Education & Training with Although I'm retired, I love sharing my knowledge and learning from other real estate industry professionals.

     Yahoo! officials cut the ribbon on their new facility in the Wenatchee Technology Center last  Thursday. 

An article in the Wenatchee World  newspaper details the ceremony and why Yahoo! added Wenatchee, Washington in the mix as a key location for their business. 

What were the primary reasons for the internet giant selecting this central Washington location? 
  * Inexpensive power 
  * Fibre Optics 
  * Dry desert air. 

Other reasons to come to Wenatchee:
  * 300 days of sunshine
  * Recreational opportunities galore
  * Best apples in the world!

The market dynamics in Wenatchee clearly indicate a continuation of the strong market for real estate, with forecast appreciation at 16% for the next 12 months . 

We have a strong and diverse economy with the following major employers, not in any particular order:
  * Agriculture (fruit production)
  * Hydroelectric Power
  * Local, State, and Federal government
  * Aluminum Production (ALCOA)
  * Educational services

On my other blog, I regularly post current pictures, news, info and trends from Wenatchee and the surrounding area.

Kristal,  Not to worry.  They're not moving here.  It's a data center, not an office complex for them.

Hope your Broncos have better luck than my SeaHawks today!
