Hi Debbie -

Fortunately, Bellingham does have a fair number of great neighborhoods.

The largest school is Western Washington University and therefore the greatest concentration of students are closer to that school.

You may want to consider the Sunnyland or York neighborhoods. They both have high walking scores. There will be some students in York, not as many in Sunnyland.

Let us know if you need anything else, happy to help!

Well these are all great answers and I agree with most of them. If you look on a settlement statement from an escrow company, it is usually a minor line item. Full escrow service wouldn’t even come close to that amount even if it was for a commercial property. If you call an attorney, they may have a flat fee. My guess if you call a Real Estate attorney they may do it for a minor fee because they just pull a copy out of a file and might even notarize it for you. If you want to do it all yourself you can get forms at the library or you can go to and you can get any legal document prepared by an attorney for a fraction of the cost of walking into an office etc. Hope this helps. If you want a few names of attorneys or escrow companies in the Bellingham area I can get those to you. Good luck. ... more

I was an attorney prior to becoming a real estate agent. That seems very high assuming all they had to do was draft the deed and didn't provide any other advice. Was the invoice broken down as to services?

Also, it's possible that they paid for title insurance, so check the costs on the bill.
