Beginning On the residential side, according to the Gardner Report, in the first quarter of 2022 home sales were 23% less than that of the first quarter in 2021. This indicates a trend of inventory becoming lower, as fewer sellers are listing homes driving more demand. A positive signal overall for property owners as pricing has increased by 13% from the final quarter in 2021. 

According to the Billings Gazette, in 2021 land sales were at an all-time high, with almost 1.2 million acres selling compared to more than 800,000 acres in 2020. The record volume of sales was up 34% while inventory hit a record low, down nearly 50%.

Expect larger land tracts to be found closer to Four Corners, Bozeman, and even toward the South East in Wyoming.  It’s worth noting that Big Sky real estate prices can be significantly higher than average in Montana due to low inventory and high demand.
