Missoula’s Green Belt: Orchard Homes & Target Range Neighborhood

Posted

This is really two neighborhoods but without a clear boundary between them.  The name “Orchard Homes” is a nod to the area’s agricultural history. It is still home to several of Missoula’s ‘truck farms’ that provide so much of the produce for our Farmer’s Markets.  The name “Target Range” comes from the time when Fort Missoula was in operation (1877-1921).  The neighborhood boundaries are Reserve Street, the Clark Fork river, the Bitterroot river, and Brooks street/Highway 93.  The neighborhood features the Fort Missoula Regional Park with walking trails, soccer fields, softball diamonds, tennis and pickle ball courts, volleyball and basketball courts, and bocce.  It also features the Kelly Island fishing access. Homes in the area are typically on larger lots (1/2 acre+). 

In 2017 the average asking price for a home was $349,728 with an average selling price of $340,888 after taking 133 days to sell.  75 homes sold in the neighborhood. 

In 2016 the average asking price was $318,134 with an average selling price of $313,347 after spending 155 days on the market.  92 homes sold in the area during 2016.  

For 2015 the average list price was $306,689 and the typical home sold for $298,775.  The average selling time was 104 days with 55 homes selling.
