Market Trends: Three Beds vs. Four Beds

In Flathead County, three-bed homes generally cost more than four-bed homes

By Richard Dews

Reacting to the hot local housing market, I narrowed this week’s market research window to January through March 2021. I compared three-bedroom single-family residence sales data to that of four-bedroom homes, within Flathead County. Well, across the board, three beds sell more units, faster, and at higher prices per square foot, than four beds (all but highest price range). The online Beacon has animated GIFs to showcase the differences (located at the bottom of this column).

Original list and sold median prices per square foot are blue and purple lines, respectively, and they use the right axis values.
