Kalispell Market Report: Residential Homes – November 2023

Real Estate Broker/Owner with eXp Commercial, Referral Divison RRE-BRO-LIC-75443

Following is an overview of the Kalispell Montana real estate results for the residential market as of November 2023. This report covers the entire residential market, including single family homes, townhouses, condominiums and manufactured homes.

According to my calculations, the Kalispell residential market spent the month of November in a balanced market where neither sellers or buyers had an advantage. In November sales were lower than the previous month and remain lower than last year. Inventory decreased for the second month in a row and homes under contract also decreased.

Sales Volume

In the month of November 2023, there were 48 residential sales in Kalispell which was 14% lower than last month and 9% less than last year. This year's home market has been softer than last year. Of the homes that sold in November, one was a condo, four were town homes and the remainder were single family homes. There were no sales of manufactured homes.

In terms of available homes on the market, inventory was steadily increasing since March of 2023. However, in October we saw a decrease from 295 to 285 homes on the market and in November a further decrease from 285 to 277. Buyers still have choices at the moment but inventory is declining - mostly due to normal seasonal decreases.

Of the homes currently available, 23 are condominiums, 22 are townhouses, ten are manufactured homes and the rest are single family homes.

In the past twelve months, 747 residential homes sold in Kalispell which is an average of 62 per month. With 277 homes currently for sale, that means there are 4.5 months of inventory. Approximately five months of inventory would reflect a balanced market. So would an absorption rate between 15-20%. Absorption rate is calculated by taking the number of homes sold and dividing by the number of homes on the market. In this case, November reflected a rate of 17.3%. Therefore, both calculations reflect a balanced market in Kalispell.

Hi Kat... our market here is still more of a seller's market than balanced, but we do have some areas that are moving towards a balanced market.

With a 4.5 month inventory the balance is only slighted weighted to sellers. Buyers need to be active to get their deals, however.

It seems that things in Kalispell move at a slower pace.  I would certainly trust the advice from the House Kat.
