Bozeman Montana Real Estate Market Showing Positive Signs

Bozeman homes for sale are fast becoming a prized possession for owners and a great attraction for buyers willing to invest in a cornerstone piece of the US real estate. These are surely positive signs for Bozeman real estate.

Bozeman real estate is one of the most sought-after areas for investors looking for lucrative property investment opportunities in Montana. Over 56 Bozeman condo units have been sold in the last 90 days, compared to 206 condos sold last year. With the tourist season to hit in June, the city is expected to record great sales, being a prime holiday destination.

There has been a remarkable reduction in the number of distressed properties, including short sale and bank owned properties, according to reports, which put the total condo units on market at 107, with the highest priced condo being offered at $447,000 and the lowest active condo on market at $95,000.

Comparing this with last year, the lowest price condo unit was sold for $45,000 while the highest priced condo was sold for $1,200,000. This is clearly an indication that land in Bozeman is beginning to catch fire.

Home buying has become even more affordable in Bozeman now, with mortgage rates constantly riding low, thus increasing home buyer affordability. Forbes, CNNMoney, and Outside Magazine, among other popular media companies, have been constantly placing Bozeman on the list of "Top All-American Dream Towns” for several years.

According to Freddie Mac’s weekly mortgage market survey, for the past few weeks, mortgage rates have remain unchanged while 30-year fixed-rate mortgages have been reducing dramatically, reaching an all-time low, and 15-year fixed-rate mortgages have remained steady at the all-time low reached a couple of weeks ago. 

No doubt, this has been instrumental in driving home buyer affordability. Comparing previous year’s median sales price to that of 2012, it has increased from $251,000 to 283,400 this year.

The first quarter itself saw housing affordability reaching an all-time high. For a long time, cost of housing in Montana was a big drawback for investment in the Bozeman real estate. However, rising affordability along with falling inventory seem to be driving the Bozeman real estate market today. Montana has become affordable for investors looking for property investment opportunities. In fact, statewide sales in Montana have been the strongest in the first quarter.

Experts believe with at least 110 condos and 570 homes for sale, Bozeman is left with approximately six months of inventory, seeing the number of properties sold during the last month. This is indeed the best time to invest before the inventory decreases in Bozeman. Investors and buyers must take advantage of the best deals of Spring and Summer in Bozeman real estate before somebody else closes in on the deal, especially with the tourist season around the corner in June-August when she anticipates record sales and expects median prices on Bozeman homes for sale to be about $285,000.

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
