Flathead Lake Real Estate Sales
Winter appeared to arrive and disappear in February over the course of 2-3 weeks. Frozen bays and snow cover has given way to spring-like conditions for the first week of March.
Flathead Lake real estate sales continue to post impressive sales numbers as demand for waterfront properties persists into the new year. February produced six waterfront sales averaging well over $1M.
The expectation for 2021 is that transactions will be fewer due to limited inventory, with continued price support from continuing demand.

Active Waterfront Listings
Residential waterfront listings for this month are down significatnly compared to the inventory at this time last year (27 vs 73). The number of land listings has dropped to 9 from 27. Total listings on the lake historically peak in August and bottom out between January and March. The residential inventory on the lake has dropped to record low territory. The combination of record sales over the past 18 months along with lack of motivation for sellers to give up their Montana real estate continues to put downward pressure on inventory.
Median prices for both residential (~$2.5M) and land (~$1.5M) have spiked due to lack of inventory, and remaining inventory at higher price points.
