Age-Old Real Estate Selling Tips to Ignore

Homeowners planning to sell their home tend to get unsolicited advice from every direction. “Do this,” “don’t do that”; it can be difficult to decipher the good from the bad advice. As homebuyers become more informed and market-savvy, knowing which age-old advice to
ignore can be important. Here are some adages which should be retired immediately.

• ?Spring is the best time to sell – While spring is traditionally when home sales tick upward, the real key to selling is inventory levels. Low inventory means more chances your home will be more desirable, and this can occur any time of the year.
• ?The first offer is always the best – While all offers should be considered, don’t feel pressured to take a sub-par offer just because it was the first.
• ?Open houses sell houses – Not necessarily. Only 2% of homes sell as the direct result of an open house, according to the National Association of Realtors®. People are more attracted to virtual tours and online photos during these times. Consider a “Virtual Open House,” or scheduled showings on a specific weekend giving a certain end date that all offers must be in by. This will still generate the “buzz” around your property and create some urgency for perspective buyers.
• ?Price high so there is room to negotiate – Homebuyers are more sophisticated about pricing and will not bother with overpriced homes.
• ?If you don’t want to make repairs then lower your price – Unless you market your home as a fixer-upper, buyers expect the home to be in reasonable condition and a low price might not be enough to encourage an offer. Have your Broker or Real Estate Agent pull a Comparable Market Analysis, considering items such as condition of the property, square footage, amount of rooms, and area the home is located when considering how to price. Most agents have a list of trusted vendors they can suggest for you to make the needed repairs. Small repairs can make a big difference in the final price.
 ?You must update your kitchen to sell – Buyers do love renovated kitchens, but keep in mind that you typically recover only 81% of the cost of a remodel when selling. Try these simple ideas instead: Keep it clean and uncluttered, possibly a coat of paint or new hardware on the cabinets or an updated backsplash can make a big difference. This will leave the buyer to update to their preferences, which most prefer to do when making a home purchase.

Selling a home is a major life decision. Before you begin the process of listing your home, do your research and make sure the advice you rely on is valid in today’s changing environment and you pair up with an agent you can trust.

Mask Up, Ski Down

Opening week off to a smooth start at Whitefish Mountain Resort, with the ski area earning praise from ‘super seniors’ for its safety precautions

Although Whitefish Mountain Resort’s outdoor operations will run similar to pre-pandemic times, with lift line corrals set up roughly the same, a major difference is that skiers and riders are required to wear face coverings while waiting in line for the chair, as well as while loading and unloading.

That might seem like a straightforward requirement, particularly given that face coverings tend to be standard attire for skiers and snowboarders. But mask requirements during the pandemic have become the subject of a polarizing national debate, and Whitefish Mountain Resort, as well as the city of Whitefish, have gone to great lengths to educate the skiing community on the importance of heeding the requirement this winter… read more

Should You Accept the Previous Buyer’s
Inspection Report?

Sometimes a house falls out of contract. Most buyers assume that it is related to a bad home inspection, but there are many reasons for a home to come back on the market that are unrelated to the condition of the home. During the contingency period, most buyers can cancel for almost any reason – or even no reason.

Of course, the listing agent and seller are motivated to get the home back under contract as quickly as possible and may offer the previous buyer’s home inspection report to the new buyer. Some may even ask that the new buyer remove their right to a home inspection, based on the one they offer.

If you have been offered the previous buyer’s inspection report, you’re probably wondering if you should accept it and remove that contingency. In a fast-moving seller’s market, it might be tempting, but before you accept the report, there are a few considerations:

• Before accepting the inspection, do your research. Who did the inspection? Is it a reputable, licensed home inspector? Check public review sites for comments and customer satisfaction. Check their license with the issuing board and see if they have had any violations or suspensions.
• Once you verify the company, give them a call. Make sure the inspection is transferable, and that they have performed a comprehensive inspection. Many companies offer both a comprehensive and a simpler, cheaper, visual inspection.
• Finally, read the report carefully. If there are issues discovered, ask for clarification and consider paying for the inspector to meet you at the home to discuss the report in person with you.

Accepting the home inspection might seem like a good idea – both to make your offer more appealing to the seller and to save a few dollars – but before you remove the home inspection contingency, do your homework. Make sure you understand the real condition of the property before you buy it.

Here’s What’s Happening

Winter decorations go up downtown

The iconic red bells and snowflakes hanging from lighted garland went up in downtown Whitefish Sunday morning.

Volunteers spent the morning hanging the winter decorations that have been a tradition in town since sometime in the 1950s. Each year volunteers spend weeks checking the roughly 10,000 bulbs in the decorations and preparing them to light up downtown.

The decorations include 24 snowflakes, 70 wreaths, four snowmen and 47 lighted garland strings.

The tradition began when John Austin, who was president of the Chamber of COmmerce, purchased the wire frames for 20 red bells for $1 a piece. He tasked John Thorson, who owned Flathead Upholstery, with putting new fabric on the wire frames.

Eventually the nonprofit Whitefish Shines took over the effort of maintaining and making sure the decorations decorate the town from late November through Presidents’ Day.

Hanging the lights has become a tradition of its own with volunteers of all ages showing up to assist in putting them up on the Sunday before Thanksgiving each year, no matter the weather. Read more…

Virus Playing Part in Booming Ranch Sales in U.S. West

Real estate brokers are experiencing high demand for ranches in Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho and Washington

BILLINGS — The coronavirus is one of the likely factors fueling a boom in large ranch sales in the U.S. West, real estate industry professionals said.

Real estate brokers are experiencing high demand for ranches in Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho and Washington, The Billings Gazette reports.

“It’s the craziest year I’ve ever seen,” said Jim Taylor, director and real estate partner for Hall and Hall, which has offices in Montana and other Western states.

Taylor said buying a ranch is not always a compelling investment because the rate of return can be low. But he is working with buyers who see fewer stable alternatives.

“People look at them as an investment even though the ranching business isn’t good,” Taylor said.

Andy Rahn of Montana Land Source, a website tracking land listings and sales in the state, said factors driving buyers to rural areas can include a “get me out of here kind of mentality” concerning the pandemic.

That mindset may be propelled by fear of social unrest as well as mask and social distancing mandates with which buyers disagree.

Some in the industry theorize buyers believe rural areas are safer from COVID-19, while others said people who already planned to buy property in the future were spurred to action by the pandemic. Read more…

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.

Flathead Job FairOutlook 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.

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? Read between the lines in the animated GIF below.

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.
