Here's a quick look at the Bellingham Real Estate Market Report for July 2017 for residential home sales.

The number of residential sales for the month was 110 that is 5 less than July 2016 and the 5 less than last month.
The Average sales price of $481,271  is up by 16% compared to July 2016 and up 2% from last month.

The number of homes for sales has been going up but it is still relatively low and keeping the average price going up. People are holding onto their homes and there is not much new construction.

Inventory is up a bit from the past few months but still extremely low at 223 homes for sale the day I write this, keeping the market really hot for this time of year. There is only a ridiculously low 1.9 months supply of homes on the market right now. Any home priced right is still snapped up quickly often with multiple offers. There are only 15 homes on the market under $300,00 and as of today the least expensive home on the market is $229,000 and that looks like a teardown, so it's an expensive lot. This is making it extremely difficult for first-time buyers.

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.

Multiple offers are still very common in this market for any desirable home.

Interest rates are on the rise, but they are still pretty low, but my guess is they will continue to rise.

Buyer's, get a pre-approval letter from your lender ready to submit 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.
