How was the Market in 2023?
Alice Hayes, Team Hayes Realtors

1/1/2023 - 12/31/2023 Real Estate figures were:
153 Residential SALES: 115 Libby; 36 Troy; 2 Yaak
86 Land SALES: 44 Libby; 35 Troy; 7 Yaak
11 Commercial/Multi-Family SALES: 11 Libby

12 Residential PENDING: 9 Libby; 3 Troy
7 Land PENDING: 5 Libby; 2 Troy 3
Commercial/Multi-Family PENDING: 2 Libby; 1 Troy

90 Residential ACTIVES: 60 Libby; 26 Troy; 4 Yaak
120 Land ACTIVES: 77 in Libby; 37 in Troy; 6 in Yaak
14 Comm/Multi-Fam ACTIVES: 8 Libby; 6 Troy

2023 was an interesting year in the real estate market. Inventory of listings remained low and interest rates remained high. Listings were slowly added throughout the year, but choices remained rather limited. When you added both increasing interest rates and increasing listing prices…you saw a rather slow selling season. There is currently a ‘lull’ in the climbing interest rates, and buyers are looking forward to the potential of getting into the home of their choice, and sellers are looking forward to an easier selling process of their current real estate holdings.
Interest rates are coming down! Now could be a great time to purchase.
As of 12/31/2023 - Conforming & FHA Loans: Per Glacier Bk.
30-Year Fixed:
6.5% Strong Buyer w/Good Credit & 20% Down
15-Year Fixed:
5.85% Strong Buyer w/Good Credit & 20% Down

Glacier National Park 2024 vehicle reservations open January 25 (posted 1/28/2024)
Reservations required May 24 through September 8, 2024
National Park Service
Glacier National Park reminds visitors that advance vehicle reservations become available on starting January 25, 2024 at 8 a.m. Mountain Time.   

Vehicle reservations will be available on through two types of booking windows; A portion of vehicle reservations will be available 120 days or approximately four months in advance on a daily rolling basis, beginning January 25 at 8 a.m. Mountain Time. Next day vehicle reservations will be available at 7 p.m. Mountain Time for next-day entry, starting May 23, 2024 on a daily rolling basis.

Going-to-the-Sun Road
New in 2024, Apgar Village will be accessible to visitors without a reservation. This includes Apgar Visitor Center and the free park shuttle. Lodging, camping (including front country developed campgrounds and wilderness camping permits), transportation, or commercial activity reservations originating in Apgar will no longer provide access beyond the Apgar reservation checkpoint just past the Apgar Campground turn off. A full list of which commercial lodging, and camping reservations providing access beyond Apgar can be found on the park website:

Vehicle reservations are required for east-bound traffic on Going-to-the-Sun Road past the reservation checkpoint May 24 through September 8, 2024, from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. New in 2024, reservations for Going-to-the-Sun Road are good for one day only.

Visitors without reservations will be detoured at the checkpoint and routed back through Apgar Village. The village is expected to experience heavy traffic and parking will be in high demand.

Also new in 2024, visitors will be able to access Going-to-the-Sun Road from the east side beyond Rising Sun without a vehicle reservation. Visitors will also have access to the St. Mary Visitor Center and shuttle stop on the east side of Glacier National Park, as in 2023.

North Fork
Vehicle reservations are required for the North Fork area May 24 through September 8, 2024 from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Reservations are good for one day.

Many Glacier Valley
Reservations are needed for Many Glacier starting July 1 through September 8, 2024 from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Advanced reservations for Many Glacier will be available beginning March 3, 2024, at 8 a.m. These will be released 120 days or approximately four months in advance on a daily rolling basis at 8 a.m. Mountain Time. Next day vehicle reservations will be available at 7 p.m. Mountain Time for next-day entry, starting on May 23 on a daily rolling basis. Reservations for Many Glacier are good for one day.

Booking A Reservation
Each of the specified areas of the park will require a separate reservation. Vehicle reservations will be available on, or the mobile app. Visitors will need to set up an account on to obtain reservations and are encouraged to do so prior to the day reservations open. The cost associated with booking a reservation is a $2 processing fee.

Visitors may also make a reservation through the call center. Contacting the call center does not provide an advantage towards securing a reservation but provides an alternative for those who don’t have access to the internet or are not as familiar with technology. Call centers are open every day from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mountain Time and the processing fee remains $2. The following lines are available for callers: 

• Reservation line (Toll-Free) - (877) 444-6777
• Reservation line (International) - (606) 515-6777
• Reservation line (TDD) - (877) 833-6777 

During May and June, it is likely only a portion of Going-to-the-Sun Road will be open. Check the park website for road status or sign up for text alerts.

Entrance Pass
In addition to a vehicle reservation, each vehicle entering the park is required to have an entrance pass for any entry point into the park. These passes could include any of the following: a $35 vehicle entrance pass, good for seven days; a valid Interagency Annual/Lifetime Pass; or a Glacier National Park Annual Pass. A vehicle reservation does not include an entrance pass, and the park entrance pass does not serve as a vehicle reservation.

Like previous years, visitors with lodging, camping, transportation, or commercial activity reservations within the specified reservation areas can use proof of their reservation for entry instead of a reservation to gain access to the portion of the park for which they have a reservation.

Pursuant to the American Indian Religious Freedom Act of 1978, vehicle reservations are not required for tribal members throughout the park. 
Visitors are encouraged to plan their visit outside of peak hours (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.). As in past years, entry may be temporarily restricted in areas of the park that don’t require reservations, such as Two Medicine, if they become too congested for visitor safety and resource protection. Visitors with service reservations (e.g., boat tours, lodging, horseback ride, guided hikes) in these areas will be permitted entry during temporary restrictions.   

Parking at Logan Pass, Apgar Village, and other areas may be congested or temporarily unavailable. Visitors are encouraged to take advantage of free shuttles for hiker access to Logan Pass although waits for shuttles may be long depending on the time and location. Visitors are encouraged to check the park website frequently for updates and additional information.   

For more information visit the Glacier National Park website:

Libby lies in the northwest corner of Montana and is nestled in a valley carved by the Kootenai River on the flank of the majestic Cabinet Mountain Range and Wilderness Area. Today about 2,800 people live within Libby proper. The main industries are lumber and wood products, mining, tourism and recreation. The movies "The River Wild" and "Always" were filmed here. Contact the Libby Chamber of Commerce for brochures, info on lodging and events, general area information, and contact information for local businesses and services.

When the weather warms and the mountain snows melt away, the Kootenai National Forest comes alive with over 2.2 million acres of public land as a playground. Mountain trails and lakes open up, beautiful wildflowers come in bloom, and wildlife have their young. Libby is the basecamp for the Cabinet Mountains Wilderness Area, 90-mile long Lake Koocanusa, the Northwest Peaks Scenic Area, and the Ten Lakes Scenic Area. There is good access to most of the Forest and plenty of room to get away from it all!

Winter in Montana means snow, and lots of it! For those who love to play in the deep powder, the Libby area offers tremendous winter fun. Turner Mountain Ski Area, located just 22 miles from Libby, offers challenging downhill skiing with a beautiful view. Their slogan is "steep, deep and cheap", and Turner definitely lives up to that. It's still fairly undiscovered, so you can escape the crowds and get the cheapest lift tickets around. For those who love snowmobiling, there are hundreds of miles of backcountry roads to sled on in the Kootenai National Forest. Cross-country skiers and ice fishermen also can find solitude on a lake and miles of quiet forest trails to enjoy the outdoors. Those who are a bit on the wild and crazy side will love the antics of the Libby Polar Bear Club. Members take winter-time "swims" in frigid Libby Creek every Sunday from October to April. Plungers have ranged in age from 3 to 61. As long as the ice can be broken on the creek, if it has formed, the group will take their plunge, no matter the temperature.
