The Kalispell residential market continues to be strong, both in terms of sales and price points.
In the month of January 2021, there were 87 residential sales in Kalispell which is 67% higher than the same time last year. It is lower than December, but that is typically true of the January time period. Interestingly, the % decrease from December 2019 to January 2020 was exactly the same (-22%) as the decrease from December 2020 to January 2021! Even with that decrease from the previous month, 87 sales in January was a very strong result.
Also of interest, there are currently 217 homes under contract, which is higher than the previous month. That indicates there is still a strong buyer demand, and next month’s results should remain high.
In terms of available homes on the market, inventory continues to shrink. There are currently only 79 residential homes for sale, which is 22% lower than last month. Of the homes currently available, 11 are condominiums, four are townhouses, five are manufactured homes and the rest are single family homes.
In the past twelve months, 1,339 residential homes sold in Kalispell which is an average of 116 per month. With only 79 homes currently for sale, that means there is less than one month of inventory currently available. Without a doubt, Kalispell continues to experience a sellers market and the inventory of available homes is very low. That remains good news for sellers!
