June 2021 Bellingham / Whatcom Real Estate Market Report

It's July 2021, & that means we are officially half-way through the year! As expected, the real estate market has been as hot as ever.

Bellingham listings were on the market for an average of 17 days - a 41% decrease from June 2021. The lack of inventory plays a large role in the increase of home prices.
