How many homes sold — and how fast — across the Flathead, this past year (by construction vintage)? This week we update an April chart with single-family residence sales quantities and median days from listing to contract, for homes sold for prices between $200,000 and $650,000, by five-year home construction vintage ranges and by city (starting in 1976, due to quantities).

Kalispell again far outsold the other cities, and it had the second fastest time-to-contract for two of nine vintages. Columbia Falls had the fastest median speed to contract, across the Flathead, for more than half; it also sold the second highest quantities in two vintages (including the newest). Polson moved the second greatest quantities, among Flathead cities, for one-third of the ranges. Lakeside was fastest to contract in four, but slowest in two.
