Here’s a quick look at the Bellingham Real Estate Market Report for December 2019 for residential home sales.
The number of residential sales for the month was 65 that is 10 more than December 2018 and 13 less than last month.
The average sales price of $585,162 is up 14% compared to last January and up 20% from last month.

The number of homes for sales last month was 83, there are now 1.7 months of inventory on the market, (if no new homes came on the market and sales rate was the same as it is today, they would all be sold in 1.7 months).   The number is still pretty small relative to years past.

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

Inventory is still low, but there are some new single-family projects scheduled for next year. There are only69 homes for sale the day I write this. Any home priced right is still snapped up quickly often with multiple offers. There are only 4 homes on the market under $300,00 and as of today the least expensive home on the market is $199,000 for a small tear down house on a busy street in the Roosevelt Neighborhood.

I believe that home prices will continue to rise as demand is still strong here in Bellingham.

Interest rates are down. There is still a shortage of homes for sale. There is still a lack of new construction homes. The economy is good here, and so is the weather (Compared to other parts of the country.) This all adds up to increasing prices in my mind.

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

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.
