The May 2022 RE/MAX Housing Report is seeing a seasonal pick-up. This means that buyer demand is still serious and sellers are eager to put their homes on the market for spring time. So, it's still a great time to buy and sell! Bellingham listings were on the market for an average of 9 days. That's a 10% decrease from May 2021. 


The lack of inventory plays a large role in the increase of home prices. However, there has been a slight increase in the amount of homes being sold. The average available listings had a 23% increase compared to May of last year, 2021, in Whatcom County.
