There are non-pr...

The "Fix" is in. Washinton State legislature passed a bill that has "fixed" the Hirst decision that has held some rural landowners from putting wells on their property and therefore unable to obtain building permits making their land pretty much unusable. It has been signed into law by the governor. Here are the basic provisions:-Properties with existing wells and permits that are in process prior to the Governor's signature will be processed under the prior law (grandfathered);-New well applications will be subject to a $500 permit fee;-New wells will be limited, in Whatcom County, to a 3,000 gallon per day withdrawal, averaged over the year; (Several areas are allowed 950 gallons per day)-The water shall be used for domestic purposes and there is not a limit on using water outside th...

Here’s a quick look at the Bellingham Real Estate Market Report for December 2017 for residential home sales.The number of residential sales for the month was 81 that is 7 more than December 2016 and the 1 less than last month.The Average sales price of $503,425  is up by 6 % compared to December 2016 and up 7% from last month. It is also the first time the average price has gone over $500,000.Inventory is down again and is still extremely low at 112 homes for sale the day I write this. Any home priced right is still snapped up quickly often with multiple offers. There are only 10 homes on the market under $300,00 and as of today the least expensive home on the market is $189,900. This is making it extremely difficult for first-time buyers.
