Market Update Jan 2022

Happy New Year!

2022 is upon us and the market in 2021 was like never before!

A quick annual review shows us that we saw the typical rise and fall of sales in conjunction with the seasons, however, the amount of homes sold stayed mostly consistently above the actual homes for sale. Because of that, the average sale price was 101.9% of the listing price for the year. The average days on market stayed under a month at 24 days. The average house sold price in Whatcom County for the year was $592,000, compared to 2020, which was $486,500.
