2021 A Record Year for Waterfront Real Estate
2021 was a record-setting year for waterfront real estate in Western Montana. Last year, Whitefish Lake saw 15 closed transactions*, ranging in list price from $1.6M to $5.7M. On Flathead Lake, we saw 70 transactions record, with list prices ranging from $750K to $20M. (Data reported is residential sales only with direct/navigable water access, as identified by the MLS).
