The real estate website Zillow has released its list of most viewed homes in every state for 2023 and the most viewed home in Montana caught my attention, and it may stick out to you, too.

There were many beautiful properties for sale over the past year that I would have thought people would have viewed more than others. You know, in a real-estate-window shopping kind of way. Properties like these:

With the thoughtful details inside the rail car and simply how unique it is, this property may have brought in a lot of views.

And with a descriptor like 'once in a lifetime,' there's not question this property is worthy of eyeballs.

But the most viewed property on Zillow in Montana was one that might have been viewed because of its seeming attainability.

The fact that it's in Bigfork and it's on the water is not necessarily unexpected. But it's the size of the property and the price tag that caught my attention.

$500,000 for a house is a lot of money, but if you're looking for a lake house, especially around Flathead Lake, you'd expect to pay at least that much or more. That may be why this property got a lot of attention last year. Take a look.
