With all this incredible weather the Bellingham area has been experiencing lately it’s a perfect time to get out and enjoy some of the local sights and amenities. South Hill’s  Boulevard Park happens to be one of my favorite places to go on a sunny afternoon or for an evening stroll to watch the Sunset.

Boulevard Park is located on just north of the historic Fairhaven District along South State Street and Bay View Drive. You can access the park off of South State Street and take the stairs down to the Park, down Bay View Drive and park in the park’s main parking lots or enjoy a leisurely stroll fromFairhaven to the Park via the Taylor Street Dock.

South Hill Neighborhood Real Estate Market

Bellingham Real Estate Market – How is IT?

How is the real estate market?  This is a question that is always raised and it seemed to be top of mind for everyone coming through my Open House recently at 925 15th St on South Hill.  At the Open House, when people would ask “How is the Market”, what they were really asking was 1) how is the Bellingham real estate market in general 2) How is the market on South Hill 3) How is the market for their home.  Generally speaking, most Buyers today have a home to sell if they are considering a move and so for many the sales price of the home they want to buy is as important to them as that of which they are hopeing to sell.

So with that said, How is the South Hill Neighborhood Market?
