Montana ROC goes online

Morning Star Community, a 41-home resident-owned community in Kalispell, Mont., debuted its marketing website this week.

Laurie Westendorf, President of the democratically elected Board of Directors, said the site will help tell the story of the community and the benefits of resident ownership, particularly to those who might be looking to move into the community.

Along with the ability to create custom real estate listings, Morning Star’s site also links to listings on MHVillage.com, the nation’s largest and most active website for buying or selling manufactured homes, Westendorf said the virtual tour of the community is also a huge perk.

“It’s great being able to tour the community if I’m looking to buy a lot,” she said. “I really love that feature.”

Morning Star residents purchased their neighborhood in 2017.

The well-established community is just a mile from downtown Kalispell and 35 miles from the gates of Glacier National Park. The community is also near an wide array of recreation hot spots, including fishing, boating, swimming or water skiing in the warmer months, as well as skiing in the winter.
