From the dead center of Washington state, wenatcheeworld informs MHProNews the sale of houses priced at $250,000 or below sparked a 40 percent increase of home sales over the first two months of 2012, typically one of the slower periods of the year. “Put an entry-level home on the market and — wham! — it’s gone in no time,” said Laurie Carlson, a broker for Coldwell Banker in Wenatchee, Wash. “They go almost as fast as we can list them.” The biggest jump in six years accounted for sales in the area to go from $15.8 million to $22 million in Jan. and Feb, 2013. Sales of manufactured homes doubled from seven to 15 year-over-year.
