I would suggest talking to a mortgage specialist in your local area. There are many different loan programs available and the best way to find out which one meets your needs is to make an appointment with a loan officer that services your area. If you don't know who to go to, you can get in touch with a real estate agent for a referral. They are in the best position to know who does the best job and they will appreciate someone who is willing to find out their buying position before taking up their time. It is much more productive and efficient to know what price range you need to be looking at before you start. Good luck. ... more

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

Perhaps, but some may argue with that. I'm really not sure personally. I am a Realtor/Broker here in the Flathead Valley, but I used to be a logger/ski run logger for Boyne Corp., the company that owns the Big Sky resort in the early 1980's/. (I still get a ski pass every year at Big Sky!). Moonlight went into bankruptcy and receivership so i am uncertain as to their ownership right now. Whitefish Mountain Resort has the benefit of a very dynamic and cool little town of Whitefish, but Big Sky doesn't really have a "community" in the old-fashioned sense. It's just a resort, in reality. To be sure, Big Sky and Moonlight were over speculated in the run-up to the crash, and the evidence of that that is still clear if one is to take a drive up Cowboy Heaven in Moonlight and see all the rusty For Sale signs today. That never really happened in Whitefish to the extent the bottom dropped out in Big Sky. Even the Yellowstone Club next to Big Sky went into bankruptcy protection! Whitefish less exclusive? Less vertical per run, for sure, but I think "less exclusive" is probably not the correct summary judgement. For more information email me at or call me at 406-253-9117. Website is thanks - Steve Dooling ... 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!

Ryan Kirt answered:

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.

I personally love the South Hills in Missoula. Chief Charlo Elementary School is top notch and the views are outstanding. If you want to be on "the flat", go for Target Range, Lewis and Clark, or Pleasant View. Best of luck to you and your transition to Missoula. ... more

Scotta Anderson answered:
Mmmm, maybe. The area is older, the homes are older and typically inexpensively built to begin with. Alot of times, if homes were considered affordable when they were built they will remain that way. The buyer in a market always determines value. So I guess it would depend on what improvements are made, what the improvements do to the area to make it more attractive for buyers and what you mean by skyrocket.

No, because the bank is not the seller. Sometimes the Realtor will submit multiple accepted offers if the bank had not approved prior offers.

Hi Kennedy,

When you say the water situation, what specifically are you interested in? Well depths? Municipal water supply? Flood Zone? Any further information you can provide would be helpful!
