With a population of 45,300 plus people, Stevens County definitely has something to offer to potential real estate buyers and investors. Located in the state of Washington, Stevens County is comprised of approximately19 cities in total. Within these 19 cities, you’ll find diverse neighborhoods, award-winning schools, affluent downtown districts, and of course, the great outdoors. Nevertheless, the bigger cities tend to have more available real estate—for example, places such as Colville, Kettle Falls, Chewelah, Loon Lake, and Valley. Overall, you’ll find 300 plus homes for sale in Steven County with a median sale price of about $270,0000 or $136 per square foot.
In Stevens County, Colville is the largest city and therefore has more homes for sale in comparison to other popular cities within the county. However, there is also a high volume of homes for sale in Kettle Falls and Chewelah at the moment. Other prevalent areas for available real estate include such small towns as Northport, Nine Miles Falls, Loon Lake, and Valley. Here, in these smaller towns/cities, you will likely find a few homes on the market at any given time. But overall, your potential housing options are somewhat limited in smaller towns. Consequently, Stevens County’s three major cities (Colville, Kettle Falls, and Chewelah) are the best areas to start your home search based on available inventory.
At present, Colville has roughly 95 homes on the market ranging from $70,000 to $3,950,000. Here, you’ll find cozy 2-and 3-bedroom homes, traditional-style 3- and 4-bedroom homes with a decent amount of acreage, farmhouses, log cabins, rustic homes with potential, waterfront homes, and lavish country estates. Depending on your budget, you can even turn a 15-bedroom, 8-bath former resort into your dream mansion for only $849,500. What’s more, for a little less, you can purchase a turnkey contemporary home nestled in the forest for $775,000. Naturally, if you’re looking for affordable luxury, Colville can still accommodate your needs. For instance, a 4-bedroom, 3-bath, single-family rancher has everything including an inground swimming pool for $275,000. This reasonably-priced rancher is perfect for a growing family.
In contrast, Kettle Falls has less than 50 available homes for sale. These homes range from $80,000 to $990,000 and tend to move fast due to their ideal location. Kettle Falls itself is regarded as the gateway to the Columbia River and Lake Roosevelt. As a result, you’ll find dozens of lakefront and riverfront properties for every budget. For example, a 3-bedroom, 2-bath single-family home with 1,720 square feet of living space is only $325,000. This modern home is situated on 6.6-acres and nestled into the lush landscape right off Mission Lake. For $599,000, you can own a 3-bedroom, 3-bath contemporary home that sits on a 66-acre lot overlooking Lake Roosevelt. This Lake Roosevelt home has a custom-built fireplace, a spacious master suite with an Aqua Trainer pool, a sunroom, and much more.
Last but not least, homes for sale in Chewelah range from $149,500 to $825,000. Presently, there are just over 30 homes on the market in the rural area of Chewelah. Here, you will find more pastoral real estate including farmhouses with mixed land, ranch-style homes with ample acreage, and the occasional contemporary home located on a golf course fairway. Moreover, Chewelah homes tend to be on the larger size and offer an impressive amount of living space. For instance, a 5-bedroom, 8-bath hilltop estate has over 8,500 square feet of living space for only $598,500. Likewise, a newly listed 5-bedroom, 4-bath, Suncrest estate has 5,449 square feet of living space for $474,900. This newly listed estate spans 1.03 acres and has hardwood floors, a gourmet kitchen, a grand entrance, and 9ft ceilings.
