Cost of home per sq/ft
Reprinted from the Flathead Beacon, March 2019, by Richard Dews
Let’s nix the bar charts and look at a map of the past 12 months of single-family residence sales across the Flathead (see graphic). Almost 1,500 units sold during this timeframe, with the lion’s share costing between $125 and $200 per square foot. The legend, at the top left of the map, shows the ranges of dollars per square foot by color of map dot. The count of homes sold (by range) appears within the brackets, per range.
The map shows the locations of the properties. Takeaways? Lots of greens near Kalispell and Columbia Falls. Whitefish spendy nearer the resorts. Somers, Kila and Marion show bargains. Broad pricing ranges in Lakeside and Bigfork. You CAN live near a lake affordably.
Richard Dews is CEO of Glacier Flathead Real Estate, a Flathead-based real estate software and services company.
Snowpack conditions generally improved across Montana during the month of January, but some regions still remain below, to well below normal for snowpack on February 1st. The first two weeks of the month were dominated by high pressure in many basins east of the Divide, while western basins saw snow trickle in during the first week, then transitioned to high pressure during the second week. The bulk of the improvements in snow pack totals were from the storm system that began during the third week of January, where significant snow totals fell in central basins along the east of the Divide, and in southwestern and south-central Montana. Snow pack in some of these regions was well below normal and this storm helped to improve conditions from January 1st.
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!
