Sell Now & Here Is Why

Sell Now & Here Is Why

A lot can happen and change in a year...and a lot did! The market is always changing, and right now, it's going in a great direction. The change in the total number of residential sales and median price from 2014 to 2015 is bigger than one may think. To help you understand how much of a difference 12 months makes, I'm going to break it down for you using stats pulled for the four major cities in Whatcom County.

Let's first talk about the biggest city in Whatcom County - Bellingham.
