Whatcom Home Stats: Whatcom County Market Statistics

Whatcom County Market Statistics

Whatcom County Market Statistics for October 09'


As you can see from the charts here, sales in Whatcom County year-over-year are down around 9% compared to last year.  Inventory of homes is low, which increases demand and helps to stabilize prices a bit, but as you can see prices are around 7% lower year-over-year.  Although inventory is low, it could be due to more competitive pricing and the feeding frenzy created by the previous 1st time tax credit deadline.  None-the-less low inventory creates demand which leads to faster stabilization.
