Well, Dennis, I'd ask a Bozeman real estate agent if I were you; do you know any? There are some good ones who would be able to answer the question off the top of their head because they KNOW the market. ... more

The economy. I fully expect the market to drop 20-25% within 6 mos, which is why most wealthy Americans are getting out of it NOW. Bozeman and most of Montana is still overvalued. If prices dropped another 15% I might be a buyer - but only with CASH ... more

Hi Jolene,

This is a somewhat difficult question to answer without knowing your entire financial picture. My best advice would be to spend a few moments with a local lender, and they'll quickly be able to tell you what they would be able to finance for you. There are still some great loan programs available with limited down payments, some even zero. Let me know if you'd like a few names for local lenders. I have good relationships with several that would be more than willing to provide you with some additional insight to your particular situation. Thanks Jolene!

The easiest way is to ask a Realtor. Manufactured homes in Bozeman and Belgrade that do not have lot rent are selling upwards of $60,000. If you are looking at something around $20,000 there is a good possibility you will have lot rent. Feel free to call or text if you have questions!

Mike,

The prices in Bozeman are still near the bottom of the market. That coupled with interest rates near historic lows makes right now an amazing time to buy in Bozeman. If you were to purchase sooner then later you could either do yearly rentals or VRBO weekly rentals to help you carry the property until you need to use it. On a different note what part of MN do you hail from. I moved to Bozeman 18 years ago from the Twin Cities. Best of luck on your hunt.

Hi Hillary,

Only Realtors can post on the MLS. You might be able to find one that would list it on there for you for a flat fee but unless you know all the Real Estate laws (including all disclosures required), you might want to hire a Realtor to assist you - so you don't possibly face litigation in the future.

Good luck.

I recommend you have your agent run comps and advise you. Do you have an agent? You should have an agent.

Erin Mandeville answered:
Cheryl,

Usually a builder has a really good idea of his costs to build and has priced the listing (if he is working with a REALTOR®) to reflect his costs and allow profit (if he doesn't make money, he is going out of business remember.). Builders in Bozeman often negotiate by offering to pay closing costs and maybe a small discount to the listing price (3-5%) but I would be shocked to see a represented builder reduce the price more than that.

As a note, builders will often reduce the purchase price further if you as a buyer decide to work without agent representation. Just remember, that small savings could cost you a fortune! As a buyer, the Seller pays for you to have your own REALTOR® who works for your needs and to protect your interest. The purchase contract is just the first step in the home purchase process; your REALTOR® will help you navigate all the other questions and without one, you are relying on the Seller, who is representing his own interest, to help.

Good luck, and call with any further questions!

Jeffrey Bent answered:
Pre-aproval is a simple process that usually requires you to make an appointment with a mortgage lender or your local bank. You will probably need to bring a copy of your most recent paystub and copies of your tax returns for the last 2 years. If you are not working with a lender yet I would recommend calling Mike Styren at Mann mortgage 406-587-8600. He is a very informative and easy to talk to. He is also one of a few lenders here in town that can get you into a mortgage credit certificate that might save you a couple hundred dollars a month on taxes. After you have your preapoval then you can make a very solid offer on a new home when you find one you like. Fell free to give me a call or an email if you have any other concerns or questions.

Hi Jacobsnm,

Go to the upper right hand corner of your screen and pull down the menu by your name. Then click on "Profile." This should open a new window. On the far left side you'll see a list of items. You may have to click "More," but one of them will say "Homes I'm Following." Go into that page and then in the upper right hand corner of each listing there will be a button that says Delete. Simply click that and away it goes. Hope that helps! Enjoy your weekend.

Mark Meissner answered:
Hi Adam,

I can't seem to identify a way to put a for sale by owner on this site yourself. Maybe there is a way, but everything I see suggests talking to your agent. Some of the other websites certainly allow for you to do this, but you would essentially have to input it into each site individually. That is one of the advantages a real estate agent has, in that they can input it into one source and have it syndicate to hundreds of sites all over the web.

Hopefully that helps! Let me know if there are any other questions I can specifically answer for you about your property or the Bozeman market in general. Enjoy your weekend!

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

There are several great websites. What type of a dog do you have? Winters get very cold here and you would want to make sure you dog is able to get heat. We see temperatures in the negatives for about 2 weeks a year and about a month of the low teens. If you visit the Bozeman Daily Chronicle you may be able to get a more lenient landlord.
