Flathead 2018 home sales (with median acreage), by city and home style

BY RICHARD DEWS // FEB 13, 2019

Which home styles are sold in greatest (and least) quantities, across the Flathead? Does it vary by city? How many acres (or fractions thereof) come with which home styles, and does that vary by city? I was recently asked about the acreage which comes with home sales. This week, I’ve analyzed the 2018 single-family home sales across Flathead cities, which sold for prices between $150,000 and $600,000 (see chart). I’ve focused on two statistics: 1) quantity of homes sold by city and style (blue columns using left-side axis values), and 2) among those, the median accompanying acreage (gold lines using right-side axis values).

In every city but Lakeside, the log style had the highest median accompanying acreage. One-and-a-half to two-story and ranch-style homes sold in the highest quantities, across every city, and often by overwhelming ratios versus other styles. One-story-style homes sold in the third highest quantities, but they often had the least accompanying acreage.

Economic Outlook: More Growth in 2019

State bounced back from stagnant economy, with momentum expected to continue, economists say

BY MOLLY PRIDDY // FEB 19, 2019

The state economy bounced back from stagnation last year with help from western counties and increased construction activity, among other factors, according to economists from the University of Montana visiting last week for the 2019 Economic Outlook Seminar.

State revenues in 2017 were weak due to a stagnant economy in 2016, said Patrick Barkey of the Bureau of Business and Economic Research (BBER), but 2018 revenues were stronger thanks in part to a surge in construction across the state but particularly in Flathead, Gallatin, and Missoula counties.
