Spring is almost upon us and I can’t wait! Although it’s not over yet, it’s been a fairly mild winter here in Northwest Montana. Not too many really cold days and not a bunch of snow to shovel in town. Lots of snow in the mountains should provide plenty of water this spring and summer for some great fishing and recreating all around the state of Montana. The Flathead Valley alone is at 103% of our annual snowfall already this winter with a couple months to go. The other good reason to celebrate spring, the golf courses will be open soon. Whitefish has the only 36-hole golf course in the state and there are 7 golf courses within an hour of Whitefish.

With spring comes opportunity in our Real Estate market. If you are thinking about selling this could be the best time ever to sell your property. Inventory is low, interest rates continue to stay historically low for buyers and the promotional opportunities for brokerages to get your property in front of buyers has never been better! Call me today with any questions you have about Montana Real Estate or if I can help you buy or sell your piece of Montana. Cheers to spring, bring it on! Brian Nicodemus, 406.250.7311.

 

Whitefish takes proactive approach to pandemic

WHITEFISH PILOT // MARCH 19, 2020

Mayor John Muhlfeld on Thursday afternoon declared a state of emergency for the city related to the coronavirus.

Muhlfeld said the declaration allows the city to activate all emergency and disaster response plans within Whitefish and it also provides the ability for the city to recoup any funds related to emergency response plans related to the coronavirus.

“I want everyone in Whitefish to know that I have full faith and confidence in our emergency response plan and you should as well,” he said in a video released by the city.

The order also gives Whitefish the authority to control ingress and egress to all or part of the city, and reaffirming the ability to require employees that perform nonessential city services to work remotely.

“While this is definitely not a time to panic, it is a time to take bold action because what we do immediately will have long term implications,” Muhlfeld said.

Flathead County on Thursday issued an order by the county health officer closing bars, restaurants, casinos, athletic centers, indoor recreation facilities and theaters to the public. The order does not prevent restaurants from operating on a limited basis to provide take-out services, but they must close dining room facilities. The order goes into effect at 6 a.m. Friday, March 20.

Local Restaurants Dish Up to Charity

Café Kandahar’s Andy Blanton spearheads effort to churn out prepared meals for local food bank while Whitefish Community Foundation awards grants

FLATHEAD BEACON //  BY TRISTAN SCOTT // MAR 23, 2020

Flathead food bank

As the Flathead Valley’s dining establishments pare back core services in response to emergency orders designed to slow the spread of coronavirus, local restaurants have begun dishing up prepared meals to food banks struggling to keep up with skyrocketing demands.

It’s a win-win arrangement for commercial kitchens trying to keep their pilot lights on and food banks whose inventories are dwindling rapidly amid the public health crisis.

To seed the partnership, the Whitefish Community Foundation awarded an initial $10,000 grant from its COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund to local restaurants willing to participate, including Café Kandahar and the Whitefish Lake Restaurant during the initial phase.

“We’ve all switched our operations to takeout only, but we have the pieces in place to do a lot more,” said Andy Blanton, executive chef and owner of Café Kandahar in Whitefish. “In the restaurant industry, we are masters of crisis. We are ready and willing to mobilize and get food to people in need, and this could help, especially if more restaurants get involved. It helps us a little with self-preservation and it helps the community at a time of need.”

Snotel report

New records set for January snowfall in northwest Montana

By USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service MT

A steady stream of moisture form the Pacific yielded a significant amount of snowfall in the northwest river basins between December 30, 2019 and February 1, 2020. Many Mountain SNOTEL (snow telemetry) sites would report the highest, or second highest January snow totals on record. Although basins west of the divide would receive the most snowfall, the entire state benefited from the weather patterns during the month, with all river basins increasing their basin snowpack totals since January 1. All major river basins in the state are now near or above normal for snowpack for this date.

Visiting Glacier Park in Spring

Spring is a beautiful and quiet time to be in Glacier National Park, however park visitors must be more self sufficient for there are very few services open in the park in the early spring.

Although some services adjacent and inside the park are open year round, most of the concession services and services adjacent to the park reopen for the season in late May to early June. During shoulder seasons, lodging and other guest services are available in gateway communities, such as in Whitefish.

Bring your snowshoes, cross country skis and snow boots so you are prepared to enjoy lingering snow. Day hikes are also popular in spring. And don’t forget the camera!

State economy saw growth last year

BY DANIEL MCKAY //  WHITEFISH PILOT //  February 18, 2020

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.

The three counties accounted for 75 percent of statewide construction earnings in 2017, with commercial and multifamily projects especially strong. Access to affordable housing remains an issue, as housing-price growth once again outpaced income growth.

Barkey said partial data indicates that 2018 saw continued growth, and that state revenue is off to a good start in 2019. However, this growth has largely missed the agricultural sector, which has faced low prices, drought, fire, and now the prospect of tariff-related disruptions in access to the market. The recently passed federal Farm Bill should help the agriculture industry, he said.

Revised plan for snow lot likely makes affordable housing project viable

BY HEIDI DESCH// WHITEFISH PILOT // FEB 19, 2020

Constructing roughly 24 homes on the city’s snow lot to provide affordable workforce housing would likely make the project financially feasible, according to an updated analysis of the proposed project.

The City of Whitefish has for many years targeted its snow lot, at the corner of Railway Street and Columbia Avenue, as a potential site for an affordable housing project.

A first analysis of the project designed with both single family homes and rental apartments completed in December, however, showed that the project would have a large funding gap to make up in order to make the project feasible. The city’s Whitefish Strategic Housing Plan Steering Committee deemed that option financially unfeasible and asked Homeword, a Missoula-based nonprofit taped to help design the project, to return with another option.

Outlook 2020: Another Year of Job Growth

A low unemployment rate in the expanding Flathead Valley keeps industries short-handed

BY MAGGIE DRESSER // FLATHEAD BEACON // JAN 2, 2020

As the economy booms in the Flathead Valley, along with the rest of the nation, Montana continues to struggle filling job openings as 2020 arrives.

Job vacancies remain open in the valley while unemployment continues its low trend, contributing to the workforce shortage. Montana’s unemployment rate has hovered between 3 and 4 percent over the last year, with 3.4 percent in November 2019 and 3.7 percent in November 2018. Montana’s unemployment rate is slightly lower than the national average of 3.5 percent.

But a low unemployment rate means employers can’t find workers.

The Baker Avenue pedestrian underpass project

Whitefish appears to be keying in on an option for what the Baker Avenue pedestrian underpass might look like.

WGM Group last week presented City Council during its work session with preliminary cost estimates for a few choices related to the underpass that is planned to span under Baker near the O’Shaughnessy Center west connecting to the city’s path off of Railway Street to Depot Park.

Council seemed to favor an option that is estimated to cost about $1.63 million to construct the underpass. Under that option, a concrete structure would be used for then underpass with vertical interior walls 20 feet wide by 10 feet in height.

I hope everyone out there is having a fun/productive 2020 so far! Make it count, there is only one roaring 2020! Thought I would tell you a little about the designations and certifications I have earned through the 20+ years I’ve been a REALTOR. All of these are recognized by the National Association of REALTORS and I believe I give my clients more knowledge and power with their Real Estate transactions when they work with me.

CRS – Certified Residential Specialist. One of the hardest designations to earn combining years of production and live instruction from some of the best instructors the business. This is the best nationwide referral network available in our industry filled with seasoned members.

GRI – Graduate REALTOR Institute. It takes three separate years with four days of classroom education to earn your GRI designation. That’s almost 100 hours of education from top instructors all over the country who fly to Montana and teach members how to best serve their buyer/sellers and be better REALTORS for their clients and their communities.

ABR – Accredited Buyer Representative. ABR’s have taken a two-day class on representing just buyers and how to locate, negotiate and close on your buyer’s property of choice. Not all properties are the same and each can have some challenges. An ABR agent has the knowledge and experience to guide their clients through the buying process (smooth or not) and get them to the finish line.

Maybe next month I’ll write about my RSPS, WHS and SFR certifications. Maybe…

Hope that explains a little bit about why I’m very proud to have earned and to display these achievements in the Real Estate industry. It pays to work with an experienced/educated Real Estate Broker who is looking out for you! Call me today, RE/MAX Rocky Mountain, Brian Nicodemus, 406.250.7311. I’m here to help.

 

Sperry Chalet

Glacier National Park Chalet Reopens for Business

BY ASSOCIATED PRESS // JAN 13, 2020 FLATHEAD BEACON

A chalet in Glacier National Park is ready to begin taking reservations for the first time since a wildfire gutted the structure, officials said

The Sperry Chalet is expected to begin taking reservations online Monday at 8 a.m., KECI-TV reports.

The chalet dormitory fell prey to a wildfire in August 2017 and required a reconstruction of the facility, National Park Service officials said.

The park service authorized at least $12 million to rebuild the chalet, which is located at the end of a 6.7-mile (11-kilometer) hike in the park.

The chalet will be available for stays from July 18 to Sept. 13.

Sperry Chalet is a national historic landmark hotel, reachable only by trail.

Make your reservations by going on-line to:

www.sperrychalet.com

Using the website and the on-line form is the best, fastest, easiest way to request a chalet reservation. Reservations are not available by phone.

Whitefish garages sell homes

Attached Garages Sell Homes

BY RICHARD DEWS // JAN 22, 2020 FLATHEAD BEACON

It’s winter, and many in the Flathead have their vehicles (or stuff) snuggly inside a weather-tight garage. Do the greatest quantity of single-family residence homes (sold for $150,000 to $600,000) sell with garages (and if so, attached or detached)? Across the county, and within all major cities within it, more homes sell with attached (AT) garages than those with detached (DE) garages or without a garage (NN means none). What have been the trends, these past 5 years?

The bars represent annual quantities sold by type; the lines of same color depict the median days they were on the market before going under final contract. For the county and Kalispell, homes with attached garages sell in triple the quantity of those with detached (other cities it’s about double). Which sell faster?

snowpack

Flathead Snowpack Above Normal

BY MYERS REECE // JAN 8, 2020 FLATHEAD BEACON

A dry spell in November and December decreased some of the autumn snowfall gains from September and October, but the early-season storms were still enough to provide a decent year-end snowpack in most mountains across Montana, even as many valley bottoms remained brown.

Early January snowfall is further boosting that base to above average in certain areas, with the Flathead River Basin’s snow-water equivalent registering 114 percent of normal as of Jan. 8 and most other basins in Central and Western Montana near or above normal as well, although a few are lagging considerably, especially the Lower Clark Fork and Madison, which sit at 86 and 85 percent of normal, respectively.

Snow-water equivalent, rather than snow depth, is the measurement used to gauge the amount of liquid water contained within snowpack, meaning the amount of water that will be released when the snowpack melts, which can play a key role in agriculture, hydropower production, water storage, aquatic ecosystem health and recreation such as boating and fishing, as well as flood and drought forecasting.

RE/MAX Rocky Mountain Real Estate, Brian Nicodemus Jan 2020

Brian Nicodemus

Wow! Hard to believe this year has gone by already. I want to thank all of my friends, family and clients for a fun and productive year. I didn’t get to go fishing as much as I wanted to but got my share of rounds in at the golf course. Special thank you to everyone I had the pleasure to work with this past year. I hope you enjoyed the buying or selling experience as much as I did. Looking forward I believe the market will remain strong in Northwest Montana and the inventory will continue to be small. It’s a sellers market out there so if you are thinking of selling now is a great time! This coming year please call me with any questions you have about Real Estate. If you or anyone you know are thinking about buying or selling property in the Flathead Valley put my 20 + years experience to work for you! I guarantee you will get a hard working broker working hard for you! I bet we even have some fun along the way. I hope you all have a fun and prosperous 2020!! Thanks again!

The Legend of  Ullr: Whitefish Winter Carnival 2020

Once upon a time, there lived a god named Ullr who reigned over winter activities in the Nordic regions. Aiding him were his Prime Minister and Queen, who were skilled in creating the beauties of winter.

As time went by, however, his subjects become engrossed in exploring the world and its oceans, and they paid less homage to their god-king and the festivities of their winter season, so Ullr became a god all-but-forgotten, except in dim tradition.

Some events require a carnival button for entry. For more details on all the above Carnival events, browse to: https://whitefishwintercarnival.com/events/

Ski and Snow Forecast is Optimistic for Winter of 2020

BY THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE

Climate forecasters at the Climate Prediction Center predict a neutral El Nino to occur during the meteorological winter months of 2019-2020 (Dec-Jan-Feb) and possibly into spring. This absence of El Nino or La Nina could allow other global factors, such as the Madden-Julian Oscillation and Arctic Oscillation, to play a larger role in determining winter weather.

All that being said, the winter months of December-January-February should favor Above Normal Temperatures and Above Normal Precipitation for a good portion of Montana.
