Obviously, a Realtor in Kalispell would be best able to answer your question.
You might, in the interim, try a site like http://www.rentometer.com I've been pleasantly surprised by its accuracy (in the areas that I'm familiar with). Another possibility: Check Craigslist and look for comparable properties and see what they're renting for.
it really depends just how far out it is located - there are some nice areas and there are some pretty scarry places and if your land is next to any of those (like 'deliverance9; scarry) it will greatly diminish the value - neighbors look good and it is not the end of the road, the value will go up.... more

Rob, Without viewing the home and pulling comparable sold properties I cannot give you a selling value in today's market but as a real estate broker that is very active in todays market I can confidently say it is worth less than it was in 2006 even with the added bathroom, new paint and a deck. There has probably been about a 20% loss in value or more and the improvements likely bring it back close to it's former value but not quite. If you need to know for sure have an experienced real estate agent do a competitive market analysis and tell them you want the honest truth of what it will sell for in today's market not a price you want to hear. I hope this helps.

Recently, lenders have become increasingly more flexible with allowing their borrowers to renegotiate the terms (including interest rate, principal [sometimes], amortization period, etc) of their mortgages. Appraisers have grown increasingly more skittish and extremely conservative on their appraisals.... more
