With a booming economy and a swelling population, new construction is still on the rise and new homes and condos in Bellingham comprise a large part of the local real estate market. Giving buyers access to lifestyle, luxury and convenience, Bellingham condominiums have been a popular choice for decades - midrise condos, golf condos, waterfront condos, highrise executive suites and eco condos all make great investments here.

Bellingham currently purchases over 11 per cent of its total power from renewable sources, earning it a well-deserved reputation as a green city. The environmental benefit of this one initiative is equivalent to removing 10,000 cars from the streets.
There's no better place to enjoy all that fresh air than on the green and Bellingham homes have access to more golf courses per capita than anywhere else in the Pacific Northwest.
But golfing is just one of the area's many outdoor activities: Bellingham is known for its amazing hiking, biking, skiing and snowboarding opportunities. Bellingham's port also provides a wealth of activities including whale watching, boat building, kayaking and cruises to the San Juan Islands and Alaska.
No stranger to culture, the city is a strong proponent of the arts. Homes in Bellingham enjoy access to a colorful local arts scene that includes cinema, theatre, orchestra and museums. The area also hosts a lively farmer's market featuring local produced fruits, vegetables, breads and cheeses. Visit the market or pick up a farm map and set out on your own tour of local producers.
