Whatcom County Single Family Market Update

Home Buyers Are “Better Off,” But Market Is Heating Up


The housing market in western Washington may not be as hot as it was last spring, but it is heating up, suggested one industry leader in commenting on the latest statistics from Northwest Multiple Listing Service.

Matt Deasy, president of Windermere Real Estate/East, Inc. said his analysis of single family home sales in King County reveals 7 out of 10 properties that sold during May had 15 or fewer days on the market. He also noted more than half the listings (55 percent) in the county sold for at or above list price, the highest ratio since July 2018.

Northwest MLS figures show last month’s 12,006 pending sales across its 23 county service area nearly matched the year-ago total of 12,168 mutually accepted offers. Nine counties notched increases.

4 Essential Tips for an Indoor Herb Garden


There’s nothing quite like cooking with fresh herbs, and you can’t get fresher than snipping them off the bush seconds before adding them to your dish! Luckily, growing herbs right in your kitchen is relatively easy.

Here are some top tips to get you started and on the right track.

Choose the Right Herbs
Your favourite herb is a good starting point, as you will probably use it the most. If you are looking for low-maintenance options, though, chives, peppermint and parsley are all ideal. Some of the harder herbs to keep going are basil and thyme, so they aren’t the best options for beginners.

Pick a Sunny Spot
As a general rule, you should be growing your herbs somewhere which gets a minimum of 6 hours sunlight per day. It is also a good idea to turn your plants regularly so that they receive the sun’s light evenly.

Ensure Your Plants Drain Properly
If your plants don’t have good drainage, their roots will sit in water—which will lead to them rotting and the plant dying. Additionally, without the right drainage, water could leak onto your countertop (or wherever your plants are) and damage that surface.

Make sure you put your herbs in pots which allow for drainage, and that you place them on a saucer to collect water draining out.

Keep Each Plant Separate
Different herbs will enjoy different soil and levels of watering. In order to give each plant the best care, you should plant them in separate pots.
