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.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Instant Aam Papad (Sada) With Jaggery: Sweet & Tangy Mango Slices

Aam papad has been a hot favorite since childhood. I do not remember how many times I have enjoyed these sweet & tangy mango sheets, though no one from my mom's side ever tried making them at home. After marriage, my mother in law, who is an awesome cook, made these savory & sweet mango pulp slices for me. I must tell that she makes the best mango pickle in the world - which is both sweet & sour. She made two buckets full for me after she found that I love aam achaar.

Who does not like sweet and tangy mango leather? Our generation has grown up relishing aam papad- wonder what all the present generation is missing out on! So this instant aam sada or papad recipe was born after my dear friend Poonam Bachhav had shared her aam papad post. Her post was the ultimate trigger for me to come up with my own instant Odia version. Poonam is the real Annapurna. I love the way she picks healthy ingredients to cook up deliciousness in the kitchen. Poonam blogs at Poonam Bachaav dot…
