Bozeman Realty Report Week 4 November 2015As winter is about to officially arrive and 2015 turns both cold and snowy, the Bozeman Montana real estate market is cooling. The market for Bozeman MT real estate and homes is active but has slowed, as it often does near the holidays.

The Market Action Index (MAI) is falling; we are in a zone for Sellers. Note: if the MAI climbs, prices will likely follow suit. If the MAI drops consistently or falls into the Buyer’s zone, watch for downward pressure on prices.

In early May 2015 we had a 75% increase in the number of Bozeman, Montana building permits issued as compared to May 2014.

Sales of Bozeman houses, town homes, and condos have outstripped supply. The regional SW Montana real estate market remains active.

Given current conditions, a persistent drop of the Market Action Index into the Buyer’s zone will be a leading indicator of the price strength subsiding.

Though inventory in late 2014 was lower than earlier in 2014, continued sales demand and fewer Bozeman, Montana homes listed for sale contributed to a relatively long run of price increases until late Summer 2014, after which prices began stabilizing.

The inventory of Bozeman homes declined into October 2014, and supply and demand levels then showed signs of price stabilization for Bozeman luxury homes, residential dwellings, condos, and townhouses.
