Here’s a quick look at the Bellingham Real Estate Market Report for November 2018 for residential home sales.
The number of residential sales for the month was 67 that is 16 less than November 2018 and 6 less than last month.
The Average sales price of $498,702 is up 5% compared to last November and down 6% from last month.

The number of homes for sales went down last month, there are now 2.2 months of inventory on the market, (if no new homes came on the market and sales rate was same as it is today, they would all be sold in 1.9 months).   The number is still pretty small relative to years past.

There is still not much new construction in single-family homes.

Inventory is shrinking again as it usually does in the winter months. There are 119 homes for sale the day I write this. Any home priced right is still snapped up quickly often with multiple offers. There are only 9 homes on the market under $300,00 and as of today the least expensive home on the market is $134,00 for a manufactured home near Emerald Lake lot. This is making it extremely difficult for first-time buyers, not to mention interests rates are rising.

There are still buyers out there today looking for new homes but there is still a limited amount of homes for them to choose from.

Yes, multiple offers are still common in this market for any desirable home that is priced right.

Interest rates are slightly on the rise again, and my guess is they will continue to rise.

Buyer’s, get a pre-approval letter from your lender ready to submit along with your offer if you are in a competitive market that may change soon.

If you don’t have it yet, start gathering the documents you will need to get one, which is usually 2 years of tax returns and 2 or 3 months of pay stubs. Check with your preferred lender or let me know if you need a recommendation to a good lender.
