  • Whitefish is home to some of the most beautiful real estate in Montana!

    Whitefish, Big Mountain, and the surrounding area offer some of the best values in Montana real estate as well as a superior quality of life.

    Montana is one of the most desired places in the country to live, work, raise a family and retire. And Whitefish is one of the top real estate markets in Montana... for good reason. From spectacular waterfront properties on Whitefish Lake to slope-side lodges and condos at Whitefish Mountain Resort; from sprawling Montana ranches to quaint older homes in the historic downtown district; from mountaintop retreats to cabins in the woods... the Whitefish real estate market has something to fit your taste and lifestyle. In 2018, the residential real estate market continued to gain strength in Whitefish, with a number of new single-family home, townhome and apartment developments moving forward. That trend is expected to continue in 2019. New commercial building permits are also on the rise in Whitefish, with a number of major projects nearing completion in the downtown area, on Highway 93 South and Wisconsin Avenue... literally everywhere you look! Northwest Montana is also emerging as one of the most popular places for active retirees. In fact, in the Flathead Valley was recognized by Where To Retire magazine as an “ideal” location for retirement thanks to its natural mountain and lake settings, outdoor recreational opportunities, excellent medical services, commercial air service and vast cultural opportunities.
