Kelley’s Market Trends: Land Sales

The pattern of land sales in Flathead County varies from month to month

By Jim Kelley

Over the last six years, the pattern of land sales in Flathead County varies from month to month. It is typical that the fewest sales occur in January and the most land sales occur in May and June.

The low point was in January of 2011, when only nine land sales occurred and the high in recent years was in May of 2013 when there were 83 sales. Since 2011, the average number of land sales in January has been 25 with 30 occurring in 2016. The average in May has been 50 with 58 in May of 2016.   

The number of land sales only reflects those reported through the Realtor’s regional MLS service. Private and developer direct land sales are not reflected in these figures.
