Looks like Whatcom County real estate has turned back under the $300,000 mark for sold residential homes. The number of sales is up considerably though.
Interest rates are incredibly low and are expected to remain there for a prolonged period of time. I had a client get a rate of 3.25% on a 40 year loan recently. Banks are lending money again, if you have good credit and a steady job you can most likely get a loan to buy a home. If you're buying in the county outside the downtown area, you could possibly even get that home with a zero down payment loan.
Call me to find out how.
