Bellingham Real Estate Market StatiticsIf you look at the graph you can see that prices took a bit of a dive in the  residential market with a slighter decrease in the condo market.  Where will the graph go next month is anybody’s guess. Will the roller coaster ride of prices continue?……..Tune in next month

Meanwhile interest rates are still extremely low and there are some great values in the Bellingham market right now. You might want to take a look at what it would cost you to purchase one of these homes at today’s rates. You might be surprised at what your monthly payments would be, maybe less than your paying for rent right now if you are renting a comparable sized house.

There is only a short window of opportunity left for the  First Time Home Buyer’s Tax Credit of $8,000 available to anyone who hasn’t owned a home in the past 3 years. You might want to talk to your banker to see what you can afford.
