In the month of November 2019, there were 87 residential sales which was 36% higher than the same month last year and only 8 less than October of 2019. As you can tell from the chart below, sales in the area do tend to start out lower at the beginning of the year, surge to a high in June or July and then hit lower levels in the later months. This year appears to be no different!

In terms of inventory, there are currently 270 residential homes on the market, slightly less than last month. Ten are condominiums, twenty-eight are townhouses, eleven are manufactured homes and the rest are single family homes. In the last twelve months, 987 residential homes sold in Kalispell which means there is slightly more than three months of inventory currently available. In my book, three months of inventory means the Kalispell area is currently experiencing a sellers market. Homes that are prepared and priced properly are selling!
