Big Sky, Montana (PRWEB) January 13, 2014
The housing market in Big Sky, Montana has been showing a significant upwards trend, according to Realtor Michael Thomas of Big Sky Lifestyle Real Estate. Prices of Big Sky homes for sale are on the rise and the economy as a whole in the well-known resort town is showing significant signs of improvement.
“We’ve been seeing a high demand for new housing, resulting in a construction boom,” says Thomas. “Most construction firms have been booked solid and the construction of homes and other properties is already well under way.”
Thomas’ statements echo a recent MTN News report on the state of the Big Sky real estate market by Jamie Learey, where sales of just about every kind of property, whether it’s a Big Sky condo or land, have gone up, as compared to last year. “Of course, with the current demand for housing on the rise, prices have nowhere to go but up,” adds Thomas.
Despite the housing shortage, the signs of recovery are having a positive effect on the community, with businesses also booming, and visitors making commitments to own property in Big Sky.
“The recent merger between Big Sky Resort and Moonlight Basin has also been a huge deal to the community,” adds Thomas. The resulting ski complex, now simply known as Big Sky Resort, is the largest in the country, with over 30 lifts, 4,350 vertical feet and 5,750 total acres of skiing. “The new and massive ski resort has definitely uplifted the state of the Moonlight Basin real estate market as well,” says Thomas.
