Mountain View Meadows


It takes time to build a better community but it begins with believing in better. We believe you want more than just a house. You want a sense of place. You want to sit on your front porch and enjoy the flowers in your yard, the landscaped boulevards and the amazing mountain views. You want to live in a neighborhood where kids can safely walk down sidewalks to visit friends and family and play in neighborhood parks.

You enjoy an active lifestyle and want to walk your dog and run, hike or bike on paved trails that connect to business, shopping, schools and entertainment. You are community-minded and appreciate energy conservation and protecting land, wildlife and water resources.

And most of all, you value time to enjoy your home, your family and all that Montana offers.
That’s why we believe in building a better community – because you believe in better!

Believe in Better: HOMES UNDER 300K

This winter, the Tri-County Housing Task Force made up of area non-profit, real estate, building and housing professionals conducted focus group meetings with stakeholders to better understand the actual and perceived housing issues in Lewis & Clark, Broadwater and Jefferson counties. Information garnered from the focus groups are part of a greater project aimed at collecting data and making recommendations for identifying and solving housing needs in the area. Comments by participants in the focus groups included the rise of home prices and, in particular, the lack of availability of homes under $300,000. Across the U.S., housing inventories are still running low reeling from a depressed housing market that spanned over a decade, resulting in a particularly short supply of entry-level homes both locally and nationally. But Mark Runkle, Developer of Mountain View Meadows in Helena continues to prove that quality homes can still be built at a price that is attainable for first-time homebuyers. "It is true," said Runkle, "with the cost of infrastructure, building fees, and rising materials and labor costs, maintaining prices where we would like them to be is more and more difficult, but we strive to keep the dream of owning a home attainable for qualified first-time home buyers." A number of new homes and home plans are currently available for sale at Mountain View Meadows in the $225,000 to $280,000 price range including a single-story 2 bed/2 bath for $224,900, a 1507 S.F. 3 bed/2.5 bath at $249,900 and a 1808 S.F. 3 bed/3 bath two-story for $279,900. "These homes come with a fenced side-yard and UG water system and free landscaping front and rear adding to their exceptional value," said Runkle. "And they are R.D. eligible providing an opportunity to live minutes from downtown with city of Helena services using a low cost loan program popular with first-time homebuyers." Also available are 1219 S.F. single-story condos priced at $229,900 and two 1635 S.F. single-story condos at $269,900. In June, building will resume east of Mountain View Park with homes starting around $245,000. "Building better homes at affordable prices remains a top priority at Mountain View Meadows," said Runkle.
