 Leavenworth home prices continued their meteoric rise throughout 2021.  The average single family home in Leavenworth sold for $819,000 in 2021 which is up 13% from $722,000. The median sales price in 2021 for Leavenworth is up to $705,000 from $620,000.Demand remained very high and supply was extremely low.  While making predictions during a global pandemic seems unwise, it seems likely that we will see similar conditions locally in 2022.For my full analysis, please the read the article posted on my Leavenworth real estate blog.2021 Leavenworth Home Prices

5 Tips for Real Estate Business Planning Success Business planning is top of mind for most business leaders this time of year. Lofty goals, dedication and drive are commonplace, but what is going to get you to a new level of success is not looking forward, it is looking backward and analyzing what has room for improvement. In all my years of both selling real estate and now as a coach and trainer, there are common challenges that always doom a business plan and sabotages goals. Agents aren't consistent, they aren't leveraging their time, they don't track their money, they don't connect, and don't take enough time off. So before you look forward, I encourage you to take a good hard look at your 2021 and ask yourself the following questions: Are You Consistent Enough? Meaning, are you fo...

Keeping It Simple in 2022 Every year when the first of January rolls around, everyone comes up with this long list of things and goals they want to get done. But this year, I want you to start with one thing. Just one thing. Don't get distracted by the fog of resolutions and checklists of goals. Pick out one goal or task to achieve this year. It could be a thing that is a source of pain. It could be a source of great joy. It could remove stress for you. Just really think about one thing that, if you were to complete this year, would positively impact everything else. Start there. If you're successful, fantastic! Now you can pick a new one thing and continue on. I think we put a lot of pressure on ourselves. We sit down and create these great big, extravagant lists. It looks perfect in ...

Seasonal Slowing Continues for Unit Sales, with Sales Price in a "Holding Pattern" for Vancouver WA in November 2021. We expect sales to be slower at this time of year however, we have lower unit-sales than last year, in addition to dropping off from earlier this year.  Super-Low Active Inventory at 0.2 Month's of Supply is reflective of the lower unit-sales - there are just not enough properties to be purchased. Mortgage rates are up slightly at 3.07.%  Here are the highlights for this month: 423 Resale Residential Properties closed this month, which is 50 fewer (-10.57%) compared to the same month last year; and 70 fewer than last month.   The 3-Month Moving Average Price Trend rose to almost match this year's high, and is now at $490,336, with a year-over-year gain of 15.62% ; with ...
