Explore: Sweet Pickin’s Pumpkin Patch
BY FLATHEAD BEACON STAFF // SEP 24, 2019
Autumn is here, bringing with it all the hallmark traditions the valley cherishes, including a trip to Sweet Pickin’s Pumpkin Patch, now at its new location at 1990 Holt Stage.
The farm is a fall wonderland, boasting not only a pumpkin patch, but also plenty of family-friendly activities. These include a barrel car ride, side-by-side cow train ride, a tractor tour, a pedal cart racetrack, and a tricycle maze.
The huge jumping pillow for kids is also a favorite.
To help fuel all the fun, there’s fresh kettle corn, hand-dipped caramel apples, giant cookies, hot chocolate, shaved ice, barbecue, and an espresso stand to give the adults that extra kick they need to keep up with the kids.
Sweet Pickin’s is open every day through Oct. 31, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The daily rate per person is $9; a season pass is $25; children 2 and under get in free. For more information, visit www.sweetpickinspumpkinpatch.com or call 406-752-2359.
Real Estate Market Trends:
Flathead County land sales, past five years, by quarter
BY FLATHEAD BEACON // RICHARD DEWS // JUL 17, 2019
Last year’s second quarter land sales quantities were almost off the chart in the second quarter. 2018 was a banner year, as only the fourth quarter showed a drop from 2017 numbers, since there are different valuation to take in real estate, here you can find the 3 Valuation Approaches Explained: https://spaceselectors.com/top-three-commercial-real-estate-valuation-approaches/.
Thus far, 2019 numbers show a pull-back from 2018 quarterly sales. 2018 had the best numbers of the prior four years (Q1, Q2 and Q3). We will know in a few days whether 2019 numbers indicate a consistent curtailment over 2018, or if the market catches up to (or overtakes) any prior upward trends. Matching with real estate marketing trends is important. There are batch sms for real estate investors that can be utlized in this respect to keep up to date with sellers and buyers in a positive and technology based way that is becoming more necessary within the market.
