On our Leavenworth real estate website we have a service where home buyers can sign up to receive an updated list of foreclosures and shortsales in the area. This is a handpicked list and not an automated list. Recently I "anonymous" filled out the form but complained about giving me his/ her personal information. Doesn't it make sense that I need your email address if I'm going to send you regular email updates? Read more....

 Leavenworth median home prices have taken a dive in the first three months of 2010. (But the average home price has gone up?) Am I worried? Not really, we saw a number of foreclosure sales to start off the year, but the pending sales for Q2 look much better as far as prices are concerned. I've posted my full report over on my Leavenworth real estate blog, please come visit.

Because Leavenworth WA is such a small real estate market, sometimes stats like average and median price don't tell the whole story.Last year in my 1st Quarter real estate report for Leavenworth, I gave you your choice of headlines. Leavenworth Home Sales Drop 60%! Leavenworth Home Prices Plateau! Leavenworth Home Prices Up 7%! Leavenworth Real Estate Investments Trounce Wall Street! This year I'm letting you write your own. My analysis will follow in a few days.Come visit our Leavenworth Real Estate blog and tell us what the latest headlines should be.

It's an urban myth that a buyers market means that the buyer holds all the cards.In Leavenworth we see lots of low offers that don't result in sales, because the buyer and seller can't come to terms about price.In a recent article I looked at a handful of offers, some that succeeded and some that didn't.Writing an offer on a Leavenworth homeHow does your offer stack up?

The Leavenworth condo market is slowly coming out of the slump created by overbuilding and overpricing.A number of projects have been abandonded or postponed (Obststadll, Sonnenterrassen) and a few are selling for much less than expected (Cascade Crest, The Boulders). Activity is also picking up at the Kahler Glen Golf Resort near Lake Wenatcheee.Click through to read the whole article:Leavenworth Condo Report: Spring 2010

Over on my main blog, I have posted my annual review of the Leavenworth market. We've been really lucky that Leavenworth hasn't seen the massive depreciation that other markets have, though the number of sales has dropped off sharply. Want the full report?

My partner Allyson’s reaction to our success selling condos in 2009 might flabbergast some local real estate agents. “We need more condo projects!” “But Geordie, doesn’t Leavenworth currently have YEARS of supply of unsold condos?” you gasp. Indeed it does, but there is room for new condos in our market. Click here to read my thoughts on the future of Leavenworth Condos.

I've received a number of offers in the past month by buyers (or would be buyers) assuming that the real estate market in Leavenworth is doing much worse than it it is. 3 of these offers were flat out REJECTED by my sellers with no counteroffer. In a recent blog post over at the Leavenworth real estate blog, I wrote about No Swine Flu for Leavenworth Real Estate to help buyers get a better idea of what is going on.

I have written two more articles and posted them over at the Leavenworth Real Estate blog.  The first was about the news from the State of Washington that said they have a list of state parks that they may be mothballing and our local jewel Lake Wenatchee State Park has made the list. The most recent post was about new tax laws and how they effect owners of Leavenworth vacation homes or anyone thinking about buying or selling a vacation home.

There are a number of new posts over at the Leavenworth Real Estate blog which I really hope you find useful. Dave writes "I really like the look of your site as well as what it does: it shines a true light on the Leavenworth market while all the other agencies just offer brochures (or fliers...). Good luck with it and keep up the good work! "   Leavenworth Condo Update for Spring 2009 How to find more Leavenworth Luxury Homes for Sale Primer on Short Sales in Leavenworth    Of course you can get all these stories in a feed reader or in your email if you like. I hope to get a tax attorney to write a guest post about this new change in tax law that effects owners of vacation homes. Do you know of someone who could help?
