Steve Walton answered:
Do you need an appraisal or a market analysis? It usually depends on your purpose as to what you need to get. A market analysis can be completed by any licensed realtor preferably a commercial agent if you have more than 4 units) in Helena who has access to the Helena multiple listing service. Make sure you use an experienced realtor who has marketed and sold multi-family homes. An appraisal will need to be completed by a state-licensed appraiser. The best way for you to get in touch with a licensed appraiser is to contact a local bank who does commercial lending on this type of property. You may also just want to look in the Helena area phone book. There will only be 3 or 4 licensed commercial appraisers. Good luck! ... more

If you could supply the size, # of bedrooms, in or out of town, pets, etc it would help. Also there are a couple of web sites to check out if you want.
Let me know if there is anything else I can do.

Hi "T"-- My name is Regan Langel- I'm a licensed real estate agent in the Gallatin County and have quite a few listings out in the area you've inquired about. It really depends on the property; What's surrounding it? Are there water amenities on the property? Is it in a subdivision? How many acres?

I have 30 acres on the Jefferson with a home (no value on the home) listed at $595,000. I also have a 5 acre lot with no water listed at $89,900 in the Rolling Glen Ranch. The prices in between vary.

The real answer is thast prices are definitely adjusting. It is certainly easier to see which seller's are motivated, and which are just fishing for out of state buyers. Actually prices are fairly stable in most areas of the market...except lot sales. The fact is that we will definitely are seeing Days on the Market go up.....but what a great time to get in on the good buys at great rates! ... more

Tim answered:
Hard to say (not sure what you're comparing against) - it's definitely slowed down from the last couple of years here and I've heard realtors saying we've currently got about nine months of inventory on the market. Some folks have dropped prices, but they're still high compared to the rest of Montana. ... more

Dear Nevick,
I feel that now (or in the near future) may be a good time to purchase a home in the U area because as of today (Oct 11), there are 27 active listings in that area. Prices have moderated substantially and the current high inventory of unsold homes gives the buyer a great deal of leverage. Additionally, interest rates are still favorable. If you have any specific questions or would like a list of homes for sale in the U area, please feel free to contact me.

I'm not that familiar with the Helena area, but one thing you could try is searching for lot/land properties in Helena on Trulia.

Both would be a Great Investment. There are some other lakes close to Kalispell that are not as expensive as Flathead & Whitefish. Contact me for a complete search in NW Montana
