Great time to be a buyer! Seller's are becoming conditioned to the fact that there are a lot of choices for buyers in the current market so prices are being adjusted. I don't see prices decreasing dramatically as homes are still moving so it is time to stop waiting and buy. Out of state buyers are still coming in and our area is growing so the market will not stay this way for too much longer is my guess. Should start turning the first of the year.
It is great to drive around the Flathead Valley and see homes under construction and commercial projects happening. Construction has been the hardest industry hit by the economic slow down the past 5 years. Kalispell Regional Hospital is continuing it's expansion project. There are $12.4m in comm...
Yep, in my gmail box this a.m. was a snow report! Big Mountain got 22" in the last 24 hours. Of course ski season is over but I bet there were a few hiking up and skiing what they could yesterday. The Flathead Valley received 1.5" of rain as of noon on Wed. in a 24 hr period. No small feat when y...
Wow! Lots of Alberta plates with some B.C. plates in the valley this weekend. Glad it was a nice weekend for all the travelers from up north.

A little early for fresh produce, but still fun to make an appearance and see who we might run into. The Whitefish ...
I was driving along Flathead Lake yesterday heading north and was thinking about how I never tire of seeing the white capped mountains and the beautiful blue of "the" lake. The lake level is regulated by dams and is filling in nicely getting close to the full pool goal by Memorial Day weekend.  B...
​We experienced 2 days of 80+ degrees early this week! Those warm days followed an exceptionally nice weekend to get all the outdoor chores started for the spring. Today it is cooler and a little wetter but it sure is nice and green around here. Trees are leafing out, Flathead lake is slowly risi...
Going to the Sun road plowing in Glacier National Park has started! After a record late opening last year, let's hope for a record early opening this year. Keep up on the plowing progress There was valley snow yesterday mor...
What is going on in the Flathead Valley in the business arena? It seems that the valley is becoming well known among the gun aficionados in the country. There are 2 manufactures operating on an ever growing scale. One company manufactures wood barrels for rifles and recently won national recognit...
I was in a continuing education class for supervising brokers this week. We learned - or had a refresher course in - everything from trust accounts to water rights and a legislature update from last session. Our Montana legislature meats every other year. I was in a continuing education class for...
