Since late 2015, the number of homes for sale (chart 2) in Big Sky has been decreasing, but in the last 12 months, the number of homes for sale in this period has been increasing.
One would be hard-pressed to pin the increase on Covid-19 (perhaps people wanting to cash in on the pandemic?), because the number had been rising 9 months before the Coronavirus concern.
Big Sky’s overall closed residential sales (chart 4) began slowing March 2020 at the onset of the Coronavirus scare, but began increasing in June 2020, perhaps in response to the pandemic and people’s desire to flee densely-populated regions of the US.
