Kalispell Real Estate Market – April 2020
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.
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.
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.
