I include the Meridian neighborhood distressed properties in the market reports because they have an impact on prices in the neighborhood.  If a given neighborhood has 5 distressed properties out of 6 sales, you can pretty much guarantee that the sales prices are going to be lower than a in a non-distressed transaction & thus, have a declining effect on the neighborhood market, as well as, the over Bellingham real estate market.
