From the CHAIR Welcome to the Southwest Montana Building Industry Association’s 2021 Parade of Homes! We are excited to once again offer the opportunity to showcase the builders behind these beautiful homes as well as see the latest in new home construction, building materials, integrated technologies, interior design, landscape design, and sustainable building practices. We are confident that you will enjoy the 30th Ben Yanker Parade of Homes! Buffalo Restoration Our featured homes offer a variety of amenities, SWMBIA Chair design options, price points, and locations that of the Board help enhance the community we live, work, and play in. You will have the opportunity to view well-crafted homes as well as see a beautifully planned development. At the same time the building industry is facing unprecedented

challenges such as soaring lumber prices, interruptions to supply chains, workforce shortages and housing affordability, we are also seeing a spike in housing prices as local inventory is consumed by the influx of new residences. Advocacy for home ownership and affordability remain at the forefront. The Parade of Homes is a long standing, community-wide event and relies on the support of so many to make it a success. The 2021 Parade of Homes would not be possible without the time and energy of the Builders, Sponsors, Volunteers and the SWMBIA Parade of Homes Committee; to all of you, thank you! I am so incredibly proud and humbled by all of those involved—you all spent an incredible amount of time evaluating, planning, and putting together all of the details, AND made the 2021 Parade of Homes happen! We appreciate your support and hope you enjoy Southwest Montana’s Parade of Homes!

By Bozeman Real Estate Group

ALMOST EVERYONE WHO LIVES IN BOZEMAN CAN AGREE, IT’S PRETTY AWESOME HERE. WHETHER YOU WERE LUCKY ENOUGH TO GROW UP HERE, OR ARE A RECENT TRANSPLANT, YOU KNOW HOW GREAT BOZEMAN IS. BUT WHAT IS IT REALLY LIKE LIVING HERE?

1

IT’S AS BEAUTIFUL AS EVERYONE SAYS

2

IT’S AN OUTDOORSMAN’S PARADISE

Getting to wake up every day to the backdrop of the mountains is the best way to start your day. Being in the real estate world, we often hear people proclaim, “I want a house with mountain views!” Well, that’s pretty much everywhere in Bozeman! If you are from here, this can be taken for granted occasionally, but when you’re driving down Main Street with the Bridgers looming ahead you are quickly reminded how beautiful it is.

Not only are the mountains nice for looking at, when you live in Bozeman those mountains get to be your playground. Hiking, hunting, camping, fishing, skiing, biking, kayaking, or climbing…there is so much to do in Bozeman. If the outdoors isn’t your thing (which would be a little odd living here) there is still a surprising number of things to do for a town of our size. The local cultural scene is active in Bozeman with the symphony, opera, art galleries, live theater, and music. The hardest thing is choosing what to do! Escape to the mountains to camp? Get dressed up and head downtown for dinner and a show at the Rialto? So many decisions! On top of that, Bozeman has several annual events. In the summertime, there’s Music on Main, Sweet Pea, the Cruisin on Main car show, and monthly ArtWalks. Winter brings the Christmas Stroll, Huffing for Stuffing plus the Winter Farmer’s Market, and the Winter SLAM showcase.

THERE’S A SOLID FOOD AND SHOPPING SCENE

For a town this size, Bozeman has a ton of dining and shopping options, with new businesses opening all the time. If you have lived here a while, or are from here, you’ll remember a time when the only choices for dining out were Pizza Hut or McDonald’s. Now the restaurant choices are plentiful and diverse. If you like coffee or beer (who doesn’t?) then you are in luck in Bozeman! Pretty much every block has a coffee shop and a brewery is never far away. When it comes to shopping, local is the way to go, so downtown is the obvious choice with many fun, unique stores. Beyond downtown, there are new developments bringing more restaurants and

| 10

boutiques. Ferguson Farm, the Cannery District, and Midtown are Bozeman’s newest hotspots. It’s fair to say, if you live in Bozeman you will not get bored or go hungry.

THERE ARE DOWNSIDES

We’re not going to lie, there are downsides to living in Bozeman. The winters are tough. They can start as early as September (the mountains sometimes see snow in August!) and spring doesn’t usually make an appearance until May. By April, even the skiers are over it. Living in Bozeman means owning a good set of snow tires, a strong shovel, and plenty of winter boots. It also means that we know the value of a summer day. Bozemanites soak up nice sunny

days like it’ll be the last because in reality, the next day there could be snow. There is nothing like a Bozeman summer, which is why getting through winter is worth it. We suggest lots of hot cocoa and cozy nights by the fireplace to get you through.

5 IT IS EXPENSIVE

The other downside of Bozeman life is the cost of living versus wages. The cost of living in Bozeman is 8% higher than the national average which is apparent in the sky-rocketing real estate prices. The median price of a single-family home in Bozeman has increased by $150,000 this past year! Unfortunately, the median household income is 20% lower than the national average. This makes actually living in Bozeman tough. They say in Bozeman you get paid $10,000 in views. While this is true, the mountains won’t pay your mortgage. Despite the downsides and growing pains, living in Bozeman is special. It means being part of a community. A place of friendly folks who still hold the door open for one another and give you a wave on a dirt road. We’re growing, that’s for sure and with that people are trying to adapt to the changes. Sometimes there are people that move here and bring with them their in-a-hurry, hectic, city mentalities. We see an increase in crime, traffic, and wait times at our favorite restaurants. But with patience and a community-minded attitude, we can keep Bozeman a great place to call home.

As you enter the home through its stoned columns, you will be welcomed by the two large entry doors, each with a half circle, custom-designed, leaded-glass window that depicts a blue full moon rising amongst stars with bursting tails of light through the dark blue heavens. The work is called “Once in a Blue Moon” a.k.a. “Cosmic Chaos.” Designed and constructed by Sherry Bruno, these windows offer dazzling streams of morning sunlight creating prisms of colored lights that dance on the walls and floors, created by the beveled clear glass stars. Inside, you will be delighted by the massive windows, views, and high-vaulted re-sawn fir plank ceiling supported by two massive timber trusses. Commanding attention is the stone fireplace with its custom Venetian plaster finish. There is a spacious patio off the dining room area that connects to the well-appointed kitchen. The spacious master bedroom suite showcases backlit coffered ceilings, a deck through the sliders, a fireplace and spacious double closet, while the bath beckons you in with a hammered copper double slippered, free-standing soaking tub with gorgeous views of the Bridgers, a two-person shower, double-sinks, custom cabinets, glass mosaic tile backsplash and radiant floor heating. This gorgeous 3,600 square foot home is truly a masterpiece.

WHAT If You

H OM E

?

IN BOZEMAN

By Bozeman Real Estate Group

ARE YOU THINKING OF SELLING YOUR HOME IN BOZEMAN? IT’S A SELLER’S MARKET IN BOZEMAN, THAT’S FOR SURE. BUT WITH RISING HOME PRICES AND AN INCREDIBLY COMPETITIVE REAL ESTATE MARKET, DECIDING WHAT TO DO NEXT CAN BE DIFFICULT. HERE ARE SOME TIPS ON WHAT TO DO IF YOU WANT TO SELL YOUR HOME IN BOZEMAN:

1 UPGRADE

One of the main reasons people sell their current home is to upgrade. A growing family or working from home are a couple of the reasons an upgrade is necessary. While selling your home in Bozeman can be easy, moving up can be more difficult. Meeting with a lender and realtor to discuss your options is an important first step to see if upgrading is the right fit for you.

2

DOWNSIZE

There are a number of reasons to consider downsizing. Retirement, too much maintenance, or big life changes can make a smaller home or condo more desirable. There has never been a better time to sell your home with prices at an all-time high. If you are downsizing, this seller’s market can work in your favor.

3

CONSIDER THE SURROUNDING AREAS

4

MOVE TO A SMALLER MONTANA TOWN

Bozeman is getting expensive! If you sold your home hoping to upgrade, Bozeman may not be an option. Luckily, there are great surrounding communities. Livingston is 20 miles east of Bozeman in the beautiful Paradise Valley. They have a thriving downtown and prices are more affordable than Bozeman. West of Bozeman is Belgrade, Manhattan, and Three Forks. These are quickly becoming popular options for those looking outside of Bozeman.

The population in Bozeman is increasing by more than 3.6% per year, which is four times the growth rate of the state of Montana! If you’re looking to escape the Bozeman boom altogether, there are lots of small Montana towns that still have the charm we

S O U T H W E S T M O N TA N A B U I L D I N G I N D U S T R Y A S S O C I AT I O N


Ennis, Montana

are losing here. Ennis is approximately 60 miles from Bozeman and with a population of around 1,000 people, it’s definitely still a small town. Lewistown is another one we’ve heard people mention they are heading too. It sits right in the middle of the state, around 3 hours from Bozeman. The population is close to 6,000 and Lewistown gives off the feeling of old Bozeman. In Western Montana, Hamilton gets attention as a beautiful small town tucked into the Bitterroot Valley.

5

LEAVE MONTANA

Every day we hear about more and more people moving to Montana. However, there are some who decide to look elsewhere. Whether it’s because it’s getting too expensive or the winters are too much, people leave Montana every day. If you have sold your Bozeman home, chances are you got a good return on your investment. There are places where you can get more bang for your buck, so looking outside of Montana may be your best option.

HOW Price TO

YO U R H O M E I N

Bozeman RIGHT

NOW

By Bozeman Real Estate Group

WITH THE CRAZY REAL ESTATE MARKET WE ARE EXPERIENCING IN BOZEMAN CURRENTLY, IT’S HARD TO KNOW WHAT YOUR HOME IS WORTH! Home values have gone up in Bozeman 28% in the last two years and every day we see another home go on the market for a surprising price. Million-dollar homes in Flanders Mill are becoming the norm and heading to Belgrade for something more affordable is no longer an option. With so much discussion about the lack of inventory, it’s easy for sellers to want to list at the highest price possible. However, even in a seller’s market like we’re experiencing in Bozeman, it’s important to price your home appropriately.

1

BE CAUTIOUS ABOUT PRICING HIGH

In a market like Bozeman’s, most sellers want to price high, knowing that most homes are going for over asking. However, this isn’t always the best strategy. Pricing too high can mean the house will spend more time on the market, which doesn’t reflect well when everything else is going under contract quickly. The other risk with pricing too high is the home still has to appraise for that price if your buyer is getting financing. This is something we are seeing happen in Bozeman. Homes not appraising for what they are going under contract for and then the sellers either have to reduce the price or buyers have to come up with the difference. Of course, we are seeing an increase in cash buyers which eliminates this problem, but that’s not always the case.

18

2

PRICING LOW TO CREATE A BIDDING WAR DOESN’T ALWAYS WORK

Another thought process for some sellers is pricing low in hopes of starting a bidding war. Escalation clauses and bidding wars are becoming common practice in Bozeman. There are a couple of problems that can arise from this. The first is having too many options to choose from and having to navigate through all of them! Trying to decide if you should take the highest offer or the one with the least contingencies. Do you take the one that wrote a letter that’s on their 10th offer or the cash deal? The other problem with this could be it may not entice a bidding war. Even in a crazy market, you might just get one or two offers at the asking price. Both of these are things we are currently seeing happen in Bozeman’s real estate market so it is something to keep in mind.

3

DON’T RELY ON THE INTERNET

You might think because Zillow is a huge real estate company that the Zestimate you got on your home is accurate, but that is not the case. Montana is a non-disclosure state, so no one has access to the sold prices of a home other than members of the MLS, which means Zillow cannot give you an accurate price of your home. Zillow and other automated valuation models online gather data to guess the value of your property by looking at location and things like square

S O U T H W E S T M O N TA N A B U I L D I N G I N D U S T R Y A S S O C I AT I O N


footage and the number of bedrooms. But, to get the clearest idea you have to go off what similar homes have sold for in your market.

4

CONSIDER RENOVATIONS AND UPGRADES

Using what comparable homes have sold for is a big piece of the pricing puzzle, but they aren’t the only thing to consider. If you have done renovations or upgrades that add value to your home, it needs to be taken into consideration when pricing. Remember, not all renovations add value, and home projects can be costly. Sellers don’t always get out what they put into a home reno project. Talk with your agent about any projects you’ve done to your home to see if they can add to your asking price.

5

WORK WITH A REAL ESTATE AGENT TO DETERMINE THE LISTING PRICE

An experienced real estate agent will help you determine the best price to list your home at. They can provide a comparative market analysis that gives an accurate representation of what your house is worth. In our office, agents work collaboratively and often discuss with each other pricing a home to get multiple opinions. In a market like Bozeman’s, this insight from other experts can really help zero in on the best price. An agent will also be the one to help you negotiate multiple offers, contingencies, and escalation clauses, all the extra work that has come along in our current market.

Fishcamp CUSTOM

The layout of this home

has one goal: frame the views.

Set in the beautiful Paradise Valley, this custom 4 bedroom, 4 ½ bath home features the classic Fish4 bedroom camp style. The whole home is custom 4 ½ bath thorough-out, featuring wire brushed white oak cabinets. There are two “most Housing Details? important” factors when it comes to our homes: materials and layout. The layout has one goal: frame the views. This house in particular sits at the top of a hill with a direct line right to Emigrant Peak, and so, the layout of the home is oriented with the great room and dining Buffalo Ranch

room having an all-access pass to all things Emigrant Peak. Additionally, with the rolling topography of the property and the home being situated on the top of a hill, it was difficult to set this house to capture the views and incorporate the walkout lower level. However, once we had the layout placed where we wanted it, everyone involved, included excavators and landscapers, just knocked it out of the park with adjusting for the layout.

About the BUILDER Always an eye for details, from the initial concept through the roof, I have been in the trade since a summer job at sixteen where I grew up in Chicago.

Along the way I have enjoyed the challenges involved with every aspect of each project and the differences these architectural elements pose. With over 30 continuous years of experience in all areas of carpentry including framing and trim to making cabinetry and doors, in fact, we have our own in-house cabinet shop! Our crew is at the top of their game and share the same vision and passion as I do. Fishcamp Custom is a full service general contractor integrating design, planning and construction. When we build we are immersed entirely in the project and pride ourselves in communication and representation on the owners’ behalf.

Building EDUCATION TOP REASONS TO

Embrace an Education IN THE TRADES By Crystal Fiedler If you know a student that is seeking a path that will lead to personal fulfillment, a career and technical education (CTE) track can reap many benefits. February is Careers and Technical Education Month, which shines a spotlight on the many different educational opportunities for high school students, college students and adults. CTE includes several different fields, such as information technology, advanced manufacturing and construction. Here are some of reasons students should not overlook gaining a technical education this year.

CTE HELPS STUDENTS STAY FOCUSED A standard academic path isn’t best for every student but CTE can be challenging and motivating for some students. According to the Association for Career & Technical Education (ACTE), taking one CTE class for every two academic classes minimizes the risk of students dropping out of high school. Not only does CTE help some students stay on track, ACTE also reports that the average high school graduation rate for students concentrating in CTE programs is 93 percent, compared to an average national freshman graduation rate of 80 percent.

SUPPORTIVE PROFESSIONAL NETWORK AVAILABLE Getting your foot in the door in any industry can be a challenge. Luckily, there are plenty of opportunities for high school and college students who are training for a career in construction to gain knowledge about the industry. For example, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has student chapters across

the country dedicated to enriching educational experiences for students and offers first-hand exposure to the real world.

MODEST EDUCATIONAL COSTS The cost of college has risen significantly since the 1990s and the shocking sticker price isn’t limited to private, highly selective schools, according to U.S. News and World Report. A technical education not only costs less up front, the opportunity to gain more in wages is significant. According to ACTE data, students can attend public community and technical colleges for a fraction of the cost of tuition at other institutions: $3,520, on average, in 2016-2017. Nearly a third (27 percent) of individuals with less than an associate degree, including licenses and certificates, earn more than the average bachelor’s degree recipient, ACTE reports.

POSITIVE JOB OUTLOOK In 2020, the youngest boomers turn 56, while the oldest will be celebrating 74. About half of this generation, which filled more trade positions than any other before it or since has already retired, and the rest are within 10 years of leaving a vacancy. That means job prospects for CTE students are promising, especially in residential construction. According to the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics data and analysis by NAHB, the number of residential construction jobs increased by 3,000 in December 2019. For more information on CTE or local careers in construction, contact the Southwest Montana Building Industry Association (SWMBIA) at (406) 585-8181 or www.swmbia.org.

Maintenance TIPS LOW MAINTENANCE

Flowers

FOR YOUR LANDSCAPING Are you tired of dragging out the hose, fending off wildlife, or wondering if your soil will suffice your plants? Planting flowers that require little to no effort will allow you to enjoy the summer rays—instead of maintaining a back-breaking garden. If pesky rabbits and hungry deer annually attack your plants, then you need plants that are naturally resistant to those pests. Some plants also help tackle erosion control. For effortless gardening, check out these 10 low maintenance flowers/plants.

1

DWARF DAFFODILS

Dwarf daffodils are some of the easiest flowers to maintain. They reappear every year and are squirrelresistant. Daffodils are typically bright yellow, but can sometimes be white. You don't have to worry about them going away because their roots are actually poisonous to moles, and other underground creatures. Plus, dwarf daffodils have the dependency to multiply every year! Plant these flowers in sunny areas to bring fragrant, cheerful blooms to early spring.

2

PEONIES

If you don't want to break your arm watering flowers all summer long, plant Peonies! These purplish-pink flowers are sun-lovers and bloom in late. Peonies are droughtresistant, so they can go without water for quite a while. One drawback is Peonies flowers secrete a sweet nectar that attract ants, but that issue can be solved by dunking new buds in soapy water.

3

CONEFLOWERS

Echinacea or more commonly known as coneflowers are the ideal companion plants! These sun-loving plants come in a variety of colorful blooms of pink, yellow, crimson, orange, and white. Coneflowers are droughtresistant and contain nectar-rich blooms that attracts bees, butterflies, and birds.

4

BARBERRY

Barberries are a foundational plant that increases the security of your other plants with their thorny stems. Rabbits and deers have a difficult time getting through this barrier. Barberries are also super-hardy, droughtresistant scrubs that do fine in sun or partial shade areas. Barberries make excellent privacy hedges and growing anywhere between 3 to 16 feet tall!

30

5

RIBBON GRASS

6

DAYLILY

7

HEATHER

If you're looking for an easy to take care of decorative grass, look no further. Ribbon grass grows about a foot high and has a dense mat of foliage with green and white striped leaves. Ribbon grass is virtually pest and disease-free that loves wet, but well drained soil. When planted next to ponds, streams or water garden it may help control soil erosion. It is also deer-resistant. One thing to keep in mind is that this plant tends to spread aggressively and can invade other plants if not cut back from time to time.

Daylilies are for the "sloppy gardener" or the gardener that goes for the natural wildlife look in their landscaping. These flowers bud in shades of yellow, red, and orange, bringing a sunset of colors to your landscaping. Daylilies are versatile and can survive in times of drought and times of over-watering or flooding.

If you want an early season of blooms, then Heather shrubs are for you. These low-growing perennial shrubs bloom early in the season and love acidic soil. So if your soil isn't up to par, you can still have a beautiful landscape. The beautiful blooms of the Heather plant attract pollinators like bees and butterflies.

8

HOSTA

Hostas are shade-loving plants that don't require much sunlight. They are easy to maintain, and are a perfect addition to your shrubbery. Though Hostas are picky about how much moisture is in the soil; it prefers

S O U T H W E S T M O N TA N A B U I L D I N G I N D U S T R Y A S S O C I AT I O N


to grow in moist soil. These hardy perennials come in many different sizes, heights, textures, and colors. Hostas produce beautiful pink, purple, and white flowers that attract hummingbirds and bees. Be aware that slugs, snails, deers, and rabbits love to eat hosta leaves, so plant hosta in a fenced in area or behind Barberries.

9

EUPHORBIA

Euphorbia is another easy growing perennial that has few problems. Euphorbias are an excellent addition to gardens blooming in shades of purple, gold, or blue. You'll want to plant euphorbias in sunny areas with well drained soil. Wear gloves when pruning back this plant as their milky sap is poisonous and may cause skin irritation. Euphorbias are a simple addition to your landscaping, that repel deer and underground rodents, while bringing bright colors of spring to your home.

10

WILDFLOWERS (ANEMONE

BLANDA)

Wildflowers, are daisy-like flowers that like to spread its petals under shrubs and bloom in early spring. They are perfect for garden borders and are great neutralizers, adding more color and plants year after year. When the blooming season is over, there is no messy foliage cleanup like tulips. If you're looking for a low-maintenance landscape this year, think about issues you've had in the past. Are deer, rabbits, or underground dwellers getting to your plants? If so, fill your garden with deer-resistant and poisonous rooted flowers. Don't want to spend your summer watering your flowers, look for plants that are drought resistant. Whatever you're looking for, these flowers will get you on the right track to a well-maintained landscape.

Maintenance TIPS As people get older,

it isn't just the amount of light,

it is also the color of the light and when it is applied,

that is key to regulating things such as circadian rhythm and sleep cycles

Lighting FOR AGING EYES By nicole paarmann, distinctive lighting

Lighting becomes more important as people age. According to the American Lighting Association (ALA), with each passing year, everyone requires more light to see properly. Terry McGowan, director of engineering for the ALA, says, "Older eyes experience two important changes.” First, the amount of light required to sustain visual performance increases with age. Research shows that a 60-year-old needs twice as much light as a 30-year-old. Second, with time, human eyes become more sensitive to glare. This can seem like a bit of a Catch-22, as more light can often result in increased glare. That's what makes the quality of light more important as you grow older. Homeowners should consider user age as a factor in their home lighting design. It is easy to enhance the visual performance and enjoyment for older eyes with a few simple lighting adjustments: · Turn on one or two table lamps while watching TV to reduce the contrast between the bright screen and the surrounding darkness.

34

· Use a torchiere for up-lighting as well as downward illumination for versatility. Look for a fixture with a separate task light attached or one with a glass bowl at the top to shine some light downward. · Have a task light that can be directed or pivoted. In addition to providing sufficient light, proper lighting design is essential to human health. "As people get older, it isn't just the amount of light, it is also the color of the light and when it is applied, that is key to regulating things such as circadian rhythm and REM sleep cycles," says McGowan. What exactly can aging people do to help their eyes and health? The answer, according to McGowan, is to enjoy bright days and dark nights. "If you're older and don't sleep very well, expose yourself to bright light, such as daylight, early in the morning... a walk outside will do it... and sleep in a dark room at night. That will (help)... to regulate your circadian rhythm," says McGowan.

WHY

ARE

H om es

SO

?

E X P E NS I V E By Bozeman Real Estate Group

IN THE LAST SIX YEARS, HOME PRICES IN BOZEMAN HAVE NEARLY DOUBLED AND THE MEDIAN PRICE OF A HOME IS NOW NEARLY $750,000. MANY PEOPLE ARE ASKING THE QUESTION: WHY ARE HOMES IN BOZEMAN SO EXPENSIVE?

38

S O U T H W E S T M O N TA N A B U I L D I N G I N D U S T R Y A S S O C I AT I O N


Scarcity and the cost of development

SCARCITY Bozeman’s real estate market has been facing the supply and demand dilemma for quite some time, but this year it reached a whole new level. The number of homes available for sale dropped 60% compared to last year, while the number of homes sold increased by nearly 50%.* The number of people looking to move to Bozeman has also increased considerably. Our company website traffic has doubled compared to last year, and requests for information about moving to the area have increased by 300%. The steady increase in buyers, combined with the lowest number of homes for sale that we’ve ever seen, is driving the price of a home in Bozeman up faster than you can say powder day. In July of 2020, the median price of a home in Bozeman (including single-family, condos, and townhomes) was $454,000, and July 2021 it was $620,000.*

THE COST OF DEVELOPMENT

If we are facing such a limited supply of homes for sale in Bozeman, why don’t we just build more? Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. Despite the need for more housing, building codes and requirements in Bozeman are strict, making building new homes in Bozeman a slow and arduous process. It’s also incredibly expensive. There is little land available to build on within city limits and that land is expensive, which means the builder must work the

cost of that land into the price of the home. Not to mention, the pandemic has significantly increased the cost of building a home. After mills and factories shut down completely in the early months of the pandemic, we are now seeing shortages in building materials which is driving up the costs. Labor and materials are both in short supply, which means they are more expensive.

OUT OF STATE $

When people are moving to Bozeman from places where real estate is more expensive, they are able to easily compete in our real estate market, outbidding local buyers and pay all cash for homes. According to Darryl Seymor at Montana Title and Escrow, approximately 45% of Montana Title’s closings in 2020 were cash deals. This is quickly making homes in Bozeman more expensive. How? When a buyer does not finance their real estate purchase through a lender, they have the option to waive the appraisal on the property. In multiple offer situations (which happen a lot in our market) homes often sell for more than what the appraised value would be. For a home buyer who does not need financing, this may not be an issue, but when the next home in that area goes up for sale the appraiser will look at that overvalued home and determine the value of the next home. This causes deregulation in our market and drives home prices up faster.

working remotely and tech jobs quality of life

WORKING REMOTELY Located 400 miles away from the nearest metropolitan area, Bozeman is rural, there’s no doubt about that. But does a rural location matter when there are Zoom Meetings and Google Hangouts along with direct flights to over 20 major metropolitan areas? Throw in a global pandemic, and all of a sudden working remotely from a place like Bozeman seems like a pretty good idea. Now we have people living and working in Bozeman while making wages that support a lifestyle in San Francisco, Seattle, or Atlanta. Bozeman was on the map before the Covid pandemic hit, but now it has become a destination for even more people. The number of out-of-state buyers in Bozeman has increased significantly in the last six months. Our website saw traffic from L.A increase 99% since March 2020, traffic from New York increase 48%, and traffic from Houston, Texas increase by 105%. This brings home buyers into Bozeman’s real estate market that have much more buying power than the average local.

TECH JOBS

While Bozeman used to be a quiet cowboy town, it has now turned into a rural tech hub. In the late 1990s RightNow technology, now known as Oracle (aka the new acquisitors of TikTok) was founded in Bozeman, setting the stage for Bozeman’s future as a tech-town. Since then, powerful tech companies and start-ups have chosen Bozeman as a base camp for their operations. This shift has been great for Bozeman in many ways, diversifying our economy and providing jobs to local workers. But these tech jobs pay higher wages than many of the other industries in the area. According to a study done by the Montana High Tech Business Alliance, jobs in Montana’s high-tech sector paid salaries that were more than double the median earning of a Montana worker. Higher salaries = higher-priced homes.

QUALITY OF LIFE

Bozeman offers the quality of life that many can only dream of. In Bozeman, you will find an incredible community, endless opportunities for outdoor recreation, low crime rates, fantastic schools, beautiful parks, trails, and neighborhoods. While you can’t put a price tag on a community or crisp mountain air, it’s safe to say that the quality of life in Bozeman has made it a very desirable area to live. Throw in a global pandemic, and that quality of life is now more important than it ever was before. With all these factors in mind, the real question is, will Bozeman’s home prices ever go down? Bozeman’s quality of life has been and will continue to be what draws people to Bozeman. As Bozeman grows and changes, some people will find Bozeman less appealing. At the same time, that growth will also make it more appealing to others. With the beautiful mountains, great skiing, fishing, and hiking, Bozeman will always be attractive to those looking for the type of lifestyle that Bozeman offers. *Numbers from the Gallatin Association of Realtors

How to Select a BUILDER

DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE HAVING WORK DONE ON YOUR HOME. USE THIS CHECKLIST TO HELP YOU SELECT A HOME BUILDER OR HOME REMODELER TO WORK ON OR BUILD YOUR HOME.

CONTACT the Southwest Montana Building Industry Association (SWMBIA) for the names of member builders and remodelers. You can also ask family, friends or coworkers for recommendations.

ASK if you can see the builder/remodeler’s work, both completed and in progress. Check for quality of workmanship and materials.

MAKE SURE the builder or home remodeler has a permanent business location and a good reputation with local banks and suppliers.

DO YOU FEEL you can easily communicate with the builder/ remodeler? Remember you will be in close contact with them throughout the construction process and afterward as you live in your new home.

FIND OUT how long they have been in the building business. It usually takes three to five years to establish a financially sound business. You want to make sure they will be around after the construction is complete to service any warranties.

MAKE SURE the builder/remodeler provides you with a complete and clearly written contract. The contract will benefit both of you. If you are having a new home built, get and review a copy of the home warranty and homeowner manual as well.

CHECK OUT the company’s rating and if there have been any complaints filed with your local Better Business Bureau: www.bbb.org.

BE CAUTIOUS of unusually low-priced bids. If the builder/remodeler is unable to pay for the materials and labor as the project proceeds, this may indicate a potential problem. Keep in mind that less expensive does not necessarily mean better!

MAKE SURE the builder/remodeler has sufficient workers compensation and general liability insurance. If not, you may be liable for any construction-related accidents on your premises. ASK the builder/remodeler to provide you with names of previous customers. If they won’t, beware. If they do, ask the customers if they would hire the builder/remodeler again.

VERIFY that your remodeler is an EPA Lead-Safe Certified Renovator if you are planning work in a pre-1978 home that will disturb more than six square feet of painted surfaces inside the home or 20 square feet on the exterior of the home.
