Flathead Lake Real Estate Sales
July sales numbers were impressive in light of diminished inventory and increasing prices. Fourteen sales were posted in MLS with a total volume just over $27M.
Year-to-date numbers support the trend as well with a total of $91.8M in total lakefront sales compared to $53.1M in 2020 and $27.8M in 2019 over the same period. Transaction counts have also increased over these same periods, with 27 transactions in 2019, 39 in 2020; compared to 51 closed transactions so far in 2021.
The expectation for the balance of 2021 is that transactions will level out due to limited inventory, with continued price support from steady demand.

Active Waterfront Listings
Residential waterfront listings for this month are down significantly compared to the inventory at this time last year (37 vs 95). The number of land listings has dropped to 11 from 24. 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 residential listings spiked to nearly $3.0M, while land prices also jumped to $2.0M. With such limited inventory of both residential and land listings, median price trends have become erratic with higher priced listings coming on and off the market. The overall trend is that active listing prices have essentially doubled over the past 12 months.
