Market Trends: Home Listings

Flathead County home listings added by calendar month (2017-2021)

By Richard Dews

The Flathead is a fabulous place to live, and with unprecedented remote employment options, many more who find our little slice of heaven now choose to move here. Prices are up, choices and days from listing to contract are abysmally small, and scarce new listings (single-family residences listed for $150,000 to $799,999) are driving buyer competition.

Back in mid-March, we studied the quantity of new listings by calendar month. Let’s add statistics through April 2021 (see chart). March and April (gold columns) new listing quantities offer little relief to buyer competition. You might see me excessively smiling, on the local waters, in a restaurant or store; know that in addition to being grateful to reside here, I am now bursting with pride over my daughter’s graduation from medical school and movie-like wedding. I hope your summer is filled with joy.
