Housing Market Inventory At Historic Lows

The #Bellingham area housing market hasn’t seen a home shortage like this in over a decade, if ever. There is less that 2.5 months of inventory currently in October. A number we have never seen in my time as an agent. What does this mean for you? Well if you are looking to sell, even going into the holidays, you are going to be getting top dollar for your home. The down side is competition is fierce for buyers. Homes are getting multiple offers and spending as little as a day on the market. Yes, even in October! If you are in the market to buy or sell, give me a call and let’s get our game plan together!

“Which stresses you out more? The mere thought of adding a bathroom (so many contractors, so many unknowns, and you’re too busy already!) or fighting for Monday-morning mirror time for all eternity?

Wrong! A remodel doesn’t haveto be so all-consuming. With a few stress-sparing strategies, it’s totally doable — and totally worth it. Use these tips, and you’ll never have to step on your toddler’s rubber duckies while showering again.”
