40th Annual Whitefish Arts Festival

This year will be the 40th annual Whitefish Arts Festival. It is an event that has become a highlight for many over the 4th of July weekend and is sponsored by Whitefish Christian Academy. An annual favorite throughout the Northwest, the Whitefish Arts Festival maintains a long tradition of high quality arts and fine crafts. Whitefish is a picturesque village nestled in the Flathead Valley of Montana featuring beautiful lakes, majestic mountains and friendly folks strolling the streets during the 4th of July weekend.

The event is held at Depot Park in Whitefish, Friday, July 5 through Sunday, July 7, from 10am-4pm daily.

Artists from across the country are represented in the Whitefish Arts Festival. Metal sculptures, paintings and photography, woodworking, pottery, jewelry, clothing, and home decorations are just some of the featured fine arts. There is always a variety of Montana style art available. All of the art is handmade.

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.
