We have come a long way in the past 14 years. It's hard to believe that I started my blog on Blogger back in the dark ages of the internet before Facebook, iphones and cat videos.  After procrastinating for a number of years, I merged what was once called the MyLeavenworth Blog with my Icicle Cre...

As we expected, 2013 continued the positive trends that we saw in 2012.  The number of sales each year is going up significantly and with this increase in demand, home prices are starting to creep up as well.   For sellers or homeowners, this is welcome news – though buyers who were waiting to bu...

The Leavenworth real estate market often lags behind the Seattle market. The newest trend seems to be following this pattern. Last Spring Seattle saw a shortage of homes for sale and this extreme lack of inventory led to price gains for sellers.  Home sellers in Leavenworth were wondering if we h...

We use the term “months of supply” in real estate to tell us how much inventory of homes for sale we have on the market.  The months of supply is the time it would take for all the current inventory to sell if it all sold at the current rate without new inventory coming on the market.   But how t...

After a quiet first quarter that we attributed to the winter storm damage, we saw Leavenworth home sales surge in spring of 2013 and a continuation of  the high sales volume we started to see in 2012. Unlike the Seattle region, we are continuing to see flat or slightly decreasing prices.  The rea...

Forest fires are an unfortunate part of life on among the Ponderosa Pine forests east of the Cascades.   We have a lot of clients and friends who live outside the area so we thought it would be good to put together  a short report on the 2013 Leavenworth forest fires. As I write this, the Eagle F...

I'm always suprised how little effort some agents put into preparing a home for sale. The moment that a home comes on the market (or MLS) is the most important time for the listing. I always work with sellers and if necessary a stager or interior designer to get a house looking it's best prior to...
