How Many Homes Have Offers?

Bellingham Real Estate

The number of real estate signs you see in yards can be deceiving as to the number of homes actually for sale WITHOUT offers on them. If you are seeing new signs around your neighborhood and curious if any of those homes already have offers on them, we have your answers!

Every week we keep track of how many homes are for sale around Bellingham and Whatcom County and how many of those homes have pending offers on them. Pending is the time frame between when an offer has been mutual accepted between the buyer’s and the seller’s of the home and when the title actually transfers hands. This give the buyer’s time to get the financing, do inspection, review the title reports and more.

As of Saturday, April 29th, the pending ratio in Bellingham was 37%. Click the links to view a report of how many homes are for sale in each area and price range and how many of them are pending showing just how active certain sectors of the market are.

The Birch Bay Pending ratio was 39%

The Ferndale pending ratio was 34%

The Lynden pending ratio was 25%

The Sudden Valley pending ratio was 30%

    We have an interest in the property at 859 Chuckanut Drive.
    Would appreciate if you could provide the following:
    * Floor plan with room dimensions
    * HOA fees, if any and what the Covenants and Restrictions include
    * Is there a security system?
    * Cost for membership in Chuckanut Beaches Association
    * Does the railroad service only Amtrak or is there freight traffic as well?

    Thanks for your assistance! Brennan
