So you want land with views?
In Northwestern Montana, you can find miles and miles of forest. There are also lakes, ponds, rivers, streams and creeks. There are valleys and more mountains than you can count. There are wildlife preserves, marshes, wetlands and more.
So now you are on your way to the northwestern part of Montana and you’ve asked your broker to get ready to show you land with views. And she just said, “Sure, what kind of views would you like?” And you’re wondering what in the world she asking….
So here are some questions to ask yourself:
Do you want to see views of the Swan Mountain range from your back deck? Would you prefer that view to be from the valley floor, so you get the full view of the mountains rising up above you? Or would you prefer that view from a nearby mountainside, so you can feel as though you are part of the mountains?
Or would you prefer a view of a valley, replete with a few beautiful Montana homes or red barns and wide open meadows where deer congregate every evening? Do you care which valley? Smith Valley? Flathead Valley?
What about a western facing view with the Salish Mountains, which are lower and rounder? Where you could get a great sunset? Or would you prefer the east with the sunrises? Swan Mountains, Mission Mountains? Or what about a northern facing view, which would have you pointing towards the mountains of Glacier National Park?
Maybe you would rather have a view overlooking the 30 mile long Flathead Lake? Do you care which direction you’re facing? Or what about the banks of the Flathead river? Or Foy’s Lake? Ashley Lake? Another of the many area lakes?
Or what about a view of various rivers that meander through the valley?
Maybe you’d be happy with a view of the nearby hills. Or a neighboring ranch. Would that work?
The fact is, in Northwestern Montana, there are a million different things to view. And if you are interested in finding the right spot for your future home, you might want to start thinking about whether you have a specific requirement about views. If you do, that will help narrow your search appropriately.
