People that don't enjoy Missoula clearly don't have a grasp on what is good in the world, or maybe I am the one off kilter... To each his own.
This place is beautiful, as put perfectly below, Missoula has a big heart. Most of the people you will find here as kind as the place itself... The town is booming with culture, art, and life! We have our champions of the grid iron in the U of M Grizzlies for those die hard sports fans... Two beautiful rivers running right through town for any angler. A metropolitan feel, with the opportunity to cover yourself in nature only minutes away. Snow Bowl, our local ski area may not be a giant resort, but if you ski to be a skier then you have yourself a mountain with plenty of vertical feet.
Im not speaking as a realtor, I am speaking as Brandy Snider's 23 year old son/assistant Barett Snider... All 23 years of my life have spent here, working and learning. Speaking from the point of view of someone that has traveled around the world, parts of the country, and definitely a large portion of our lovely state, it doesn't get much better than Missoula.
If your a have a problem with being a responsible, hard working adult that enjoys beautiful mountain scenery with a splash of river and lake lifestyle... then Missoula isn't the right place.
It doesn't matter where your from... People like to talk about Montanans disliking Californians but it doesn't amount to where your from, it amounts to how you act. Montanans don't like stupid people, and they are born and live all over this great country. I would be ignorant to tell you to stay in California and keep your money there... Economics escape a large portion of us apparently.
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
