Real Estate Market Trends

BY RICHARD DEWS // JUN 19, 2019 // FLATHEAD BEACON

Last Fourth of July, we looked at the Flathead Country single-family residence sales quantities and median speeds (listing to contract) — and median list and sold prices per square foot. Let’s update the chart for this past year’s activity (since June 14, 2018), for homes whose original list prices were between $150,000 and $650,000 (see chart).

Blue bars represent quantities sold over this past year, using the left-side vertical axis numbers. By far the greatest quantity of homes (200+) sold at the original list price. About half as many sold for 98 percent of their original list, stair-stepping downward from there in quantities sold through ranges of 97 percent to 90 percent of original list.

Orange bars show that those homes which took longer to sell also sold for less of their original list price, with time-to-contract shrinking consistently all the way down to about a week for those selling at their list price.

Richard Dews is CEO of Glacier Flathead Real Estate, a Flathead-based real estate software and services company.

Glacier National Park website launches new page to provide real-time updates

BY CHARLOTTE BAUSCH // JUN 17, 2019  // FLATHEAD BEACON

During peak season, Glacier National Park is choked with visitors. Cars circle lots with no open spaces, campgrounds are thick with tents and roads such as Two Medicine and North Fork are so busy that park workers are forced to restrict access.

The park’s new Recreation Access Display (RAD) is designed to help ease the pressure of these summer crowds, giving visitors real-time updates on the status of parking lots, campgrounds and roads on its convenient web interface.
