My heart goes out to all affected by the recent floods. If you need assistance, Whatcom County has a hotline number: (360) 788-5311. If you're looking to donate to help, it will be matched, dollar to dollar up to $115,000: https://wcf.fcsuite.com/erp/donate/create?funit_id=1455 Here's my favorite insurance agent if you want to learn more about flood insurance in Whatcom County: https://representatives.countryfinancial.com/leonard.corneto/ For current homebuyers, and clients currently refinancing.  A FEMA disaster area has not yet been declared in our area for flooding, but it likely will be within the next few days.  When that happens, all lenders must halt closings until properties can be reinspected for damage. It's declared by County, so even if your house isn't in a flood area you c...

No Relief for Buyers Until MarchAs the weather cools, the housing market intensity heats up for each new listing on the market. The Sales Activity Intensity™ in Whatcom County is the same as it was in Oct. 2020 and is approaching spring 2021 levels. Buyers wanting to lock in a great interest rate are driving the intense sales activity, but they will face constrained inventory until March 2022.  In Whatcom County, the market is virtually sold out to the $1 million price point. Sales Activity Intensity™ is extreme frenzy for homes priced up to $750,000 (81 percent of sales activity). The $750,000 to $1 million range has frenzy Sales Activity Intensity,™ and there is strong luxury sales activity above $1 million.IT’S OKAY TO BUY AND SELL DURING WINTERThough many associate the spring and su...
