Yes. Market activity is up on everything. We are having great activity on Commercial and Bare land as well as residential. Crashes will always happen; it is just a matter of how much time will lapse between them.... more
Missoula is a small city with a big heart. One of the oldest parts of Missoula, known as the University district,has large stately turn of the century homes, many have been converted to apartments, condos and multi-unit dwellings, some with commercial uses. A large boulevard down center of Pine has been reconfigured in this section to reflect the original design of the street at the turn of the 20th century. This is the original home of the Wordens who together with the Higgins were the founders of Missoula. Walking distance to all amenities, the University of Montana and hospital.
There is lots of night life that suit the University crowd, with museums, live theatre, music and performances in the park. Additionally the University has brought some really big names in entertainment to the Adams Center.
The average price of a home right now is $200,000+ with a wide range of possibilities on either side of that figure.... more
Bozeman is wonderful. If you love outdoor sports this is your place. In the winter we snowboard, snowmobile, snowshoe, and in the summers we float the rivers. Bozeman is a very friendly town, and the majority of us are transplants from larger cities. Bozeman has a lot of community events for its size. I grew up near Seattle and I will never look back. There is a builder in town that I do a lot of new construction with. His website is http://BridgerPeakHomes.com take a look. If you are in this area anytime soon I would be happy to direct you to restaurants and great ski spots.... more
It will depend on local zoning regulations. It often comes down to septic regulations. If it is on a sewer it might be easier to do. Your first stop should be at the county planning office. Adding a residence will also likely increase property values and property taxes too! Good Luck!... more
Lots of variables regarding market, age of trees, ground, etc; however, a good educated guess is about 20-30K lbs per 100 trees. $75,000/yr gross for the 300 trees. I can put you in touch with orchardists who have on-the-ground experience.... more
There are definitely homes for sale between West Yellowstone and Idaho Falls, and there are places for rent either seasonally, by the week, month, or year round in West Yellowstone. The area you mention includes the popular resort area of Island Park which has plenty of places for rent, mostly seasonally, and homes for sale as well. In West Yellowstone, there are generally a dozen or more high quality family homes or resort properties available for sale at any one time. If you want more information about West Yellowstone properties you can contact me. Educationally, opportunties outside of the classroom would include not only the natural history of Yellowstone Basin, but wide opportunitues in Bozeman, an hour away. Bozeman is the regional center for symphony, opera, museums, great library, theatre, etc. The other direction...Idaho Falls also offers opportunities. Recent museum exhibits in Idaho Falls include the Dead Seas Scrolls. Although the numbers of students in area schools is smaller, with graduating Senior classes numbering in the 20's and 30's in some schools, the opportunity for excellent (& closely supervised) public education is great.
Thanks for your interst in one of the greatest areas of America.
