Following is an overview of the Kalispell Montana real estate results for the residential market as of December 2022. This report covers the entire residential market, including single family homes, townhouses, condominiums and manufactured homes.
While the Kalispell residential market remains on the cusp of a balanced market, sales, available listings, properties under contract and median sale prices fell in the month of December.
In the month of December 2022, there were only 39 residential sales in Kalispell which is 61% less than the same time last year and 26% less than last month. The lower number of sales could be attributed to buyers holding off on making purchases at this time due to economic challenges and could also be due to winter and holiday conflicts.
In terms of available homes on the market, inventory had seen significant upward movement early this year but available homes starting dropping in August and have continued to do so. In July, Kalispell had 320 listings and as of early January 2023, there are only 182, a decrease of 43%.
Of the homes currently available, 17 are condominiums, 13 are townhouses, three are manufactured homes and the rest are single family homes.
In the past twelve months, 871 residential homes sold in Kalispell which is an average of 73 per month. With 182 homes currently for sale, that means there are less than three months of inventory currently available which is a little lower than last month. Kalispell does remain a seller's market but only four or five months of inventory would be needed for a balanced market. With nearly three months of inventory available, we are getting close to a market where neither buyers nor sellers have the upper hand.
Median Sales Prices
With the exception of November, median prices have been declining since July. The median price for December was $469K, 15% less than last year and 18% less than last month. Another interesting data point is that 45% of all currently listed homes have seen price decreases. The average amount of decrease in price is nearly 8%, but it has reached as high as 30%.
