The fall housing market is underway, and a program new to Bellingham and Whatcom County will be making it easier for military and members of the public service community to buy or sell a home. 

Homes for Heroes helps close the gap between the costs of housing for police officers, firefighters, teachers, health care providers, first responders, military personnel and others who serve our community and nation. 

Homes for Heroes is celebrating its eleventh year of bringing savings to everyday heroes.

Inspired by the hometown heroes who serve and protect their communities and our country, a partnership of realtors, mortgage lenders, title companies, attorneys and other affiliated service providers created Homes for Heroes, Incorporated. 

This collaboration of real estate professionals’ sole purpose is to offer these heroes significant savings when buying or selling a home. 

Rainy Fackler-Adams with Zip Realty in Bellingham is the realtor affiliate and Marie Bjornson with Envoy Mortgage in Bellingham is the lender affiliate of the Whatcom County Homes for Heroes service. Other local businesses have also teamed up with Homes for Heroes and have agreed to provide discounts to the heroes involved with the program. 

More information about the Homes for Heroes program can be found at homesforheroes.com or by calling toll free 866/443-7637.
