I could just copy and past pretty much the same thing from last week for the residential side. We have a net gain of 3 active listings for residential with the median active list price remaining at $525,000.The condo side has the same number of active as last week but more pended than were listed and the median active condo price went from $375,000 to $425,000. Next week will be telling on the condo prices.Have a great week!Heather Stevenson BROKERCELL 360.441.7120

The trend continues with more listings pending than listed last week, the median active list price for residential in Whatcom County is $537,000 and $382,000 for condos. This market is tough for buyers, they need to be quick to have a chance to win a bid. Heather Stevenson BROKERCELL 360.441.7120

Last week was bigger for new residential listings than last week (67) but we're still very much in a seller's market due to the lack of inventory especially since the solds and pended are up from last week as well.There were also more condos listed last week than the prior week but more pended and sold just like in the residential market.Have a great week!Heather Stevenson BROKERCELL 360.441.7120

Here are the Whatcom County numbers for March 2021 compared to March 2020 and 2019.We can see that the number of new listings is down while the sale price and price per square foot are up on the residential side. The days on market are down, buyers need to be ready to act immediately in this hot market. The condominium market is very similar to the residential market with extremely low inventory for the back log of buyers that have been making multiple offers to finally get under contract.The vacant land market in Whatcom County is a little all over the place. We have more new listings but less for sale than 2020. Sale prices are down but the number of active listings is still very low compared to the pending and sold lots.Heather Stevenson BROKERCELL 360.441.7120HeatherStevenson@johnls...

Happy April!Last week the pendings outnumbered the new listings in both the residential and condominium markets.The median active price per square foot for residential is $285 and for condos is $387.It is a tough market for buyers as the inventory is still scarce. One of those condo sales last week was mine. 😊Have a great week!Heather Stevenson BROKERCELL 360.441.7120

Yay, the spring market is in full swing and there are more listings this week for residential and just about the same for the condo market.More listings = more choices and a little less competition for buyers.Watch the interest rates as they are starting to climb but they're still very low.There are 214 active residential and 39 active condominiums as of 3/29 at 11:00 AM.Call me if you have any questions about a particular city or neighborhood as I have a stat for that!Have a great week!Heather Stevenson BROKERCELL 360.441.7120

Last week's numbers are similar to the previous week. Watch for new listings coming on Thursdays and Fridays! Now that open houses are allowed again and the weather might be nice, it could be a big weekend for open houses.   Heather Stevenson BROKERCELL 360.441.7120

More Listings Will Arrive This Month After an intense winter in the Whatcom County real estate market, more new resale listings are on the horizon this month. March historically marks the beginning of the eight month prime-time real estate market. Whatcom County is virtually sold out up to the $1.5 million price point. Sales Activity Intensity™ for homes up to $500,000 is extremely high, what I consider “uber frenzy”; 64 percent of sales activity occurs in this price range. There is predominantly frenzy Sales Activity Intensity™ for homes in the $500,000 to $1.5 million range.Heather Stevenson BROKERCELL 360.441.7120
