Following is an overview of the Kalispell Montana real estate results for the residential market as of April 2020. This report covers the entire residential market, which includes single family homes, townhouses, condominiums and manufactured homes. 


In April 2020, Kalispell Montana sales and median prices remained healthy. Following is an overview.

Sales Volume

In the month of April 2020, there were 80 residential sales in Kalispell which was 23% higher than April of 2019, and 13% less than March 2020. Interestingly enough, the March 2020 results had been much higher than the previous year and as such, the fact that April has decreased from March is not an harbinger of a lower trend rate. Eighty sales in the month of April is a very strong result.


As mentioned in the last few months, the Spring market is well underway, even with a nation dealing with the pandemic. Homes still sold, as homeowners, buyers, and real estate businesses utilized safety precautions. There were 145 homes under contract at the beginning of April and there are 137 under contract now. So with 80 deals closing during the last month, 65 additional homes went under contract during the same timeframe.


Kalispell Real Estate Market - April 2020

In terms of inventory, there are currently 224 residential homes on the market, which is 13% lower than last month. Of the homes currently available, five are condominiums, 18 are townhouses, five are manufactured homes and the rest are single family homes. In the past twelve months, 1,042 residential homes sold in Kalispell which means there are approximately two and a half months of inventory currently available. That indicates the Kalispell area is still experiencing a sellers market.

Median Sales Prices

The median sales price for April 2020 was $320,000 which was slightly higher than the same time last year and 23% higher than the previous month. April median prices were the second highest in the last year. Of the four different residential types included in this report, single family homes typically have the highest median price point. In April of 2019, 75% of the sales were single family homes, while in April of 2020, 80% were. The second highest price point is usually the townhouse segment. In April of 2019, townhouses made up 12% of al sale while in 2020 they were 14%. That could be part of the explanation for the high year over year price difference. It can also be due to the relatively low inventory levels (two and a half months of inventory), and high demand for homes.


Type of homes being sold

To get an idea of the types of homes that are selling in Kalispell, the lowest priced home that sold in April was a three bedroom, two bath, 1,040 square foot manufactured home with fenced yard and storage shed. That sold for under $200K. The most expensive home sold for close to $700K.  That multi-level 4,700 square foot home came with five bedrooms, four baths, nearly 5 acres of land, mountain and valley views, and other amenities.


As can be seen, Kalispell has just about any kind of property you could imagine. Brand new four bedroom homes, large luxury homes, manufactured homes, small off-the-grid cabins and everything in between!

Your statistics are astonishing. Most agents report decreased sales and closings and your numbers are just the opposite. Even your negative numbers are above last year's curve. Thank you for sharing those positive numbers with us. I'll be interested to see what happens in May with your numbers...
Happy Tuesday from out West Kat Palmiotti

Good morning, Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS . We've already had 12 sales entered into MLS for the first 5 days of this month. I'm thinking May might be just as good.

Thank you Kathy Streib !

Hi Kat... nice to read about a market that had such positive results in April 2020... many of our markets won't be seeing anything like that for at least April and probably May.
