October looks like a good month for Whatcom County real estate, the numbers are up for both price and number of sales over last year and last month. It is a bit out of the norm as you can see from the graph the number of sales usually starts heading down this time of year
Interest rates are still at record lows and are expected to remain there fora while longer. Banks are lending money again, if you have good credit and a steady job you can get a loan to buy a home. If you're buying in the county outside the downtown area, you could possibly even get that home with a zero down payment loan.
