Little Log Home In Billings Montana - 03/31/10 06:28 PM
I just listed a little log home right in the heart of the west end neighborhood of Billings Montana at 51 16th Street West! This home is affordable, $130,000. Put your own touch of charm and character to all of this cozy wood interior! There might even be a good spot to locate that old wagon wheel you've been saving. This home was built in 1955 in an established residential location in the west end of Billings Montana. Centrally located, this little log home will provide an easy commute to downtown or westend shopping and schools (an elementary school is just (4 comments)
Seller Paid Closing Costs, What's Happening In Billings Montana? - 03/28/10 12:49 PM
For many years, seller's have been asked to pay some or all of the closing costs and prepaids the buyer incurs in order to get an accepted contract. The market acceptance of this practice depends on multiple factors, one of which includes the question; what is the standard for the area?

If the accepted selling price of a property (1 comments)
Things are picking up in the housing market in the Billings Heights, Area 1 of Billings, Montana - 03/26/10 04:35 PM
The housing market in the Billings Heights Area 1 neighborhood of Billings Montana has seen a great improvement over the past 30 days after a long cold winter.

Over the past 90 days, only 35 homes in this area were sold, that was a long winter with a whole lot of snow on the ground!
Since the weather has nearly melted all the snow, we have a bit of spring fever here in the housing (0 comments)
"Victim Of Severe OverPricing" Appraiser says - 03/21/10 12:40 PM
"Victim of severe overpricing". I've seen this terminology used in several appraisals lately. My question is, who is the victim? The home, the seller or the REALTOR? How about all three! There is a very dramatic graphic I've used over the years to try to help seller's understand the hazards of overpricing. The trouble is, many people just don't believe that this includes their home! "I know I've seen a few homes that are overpriced, but I won't do that with mine, I know mine is worth more". This sad story has been told for many years, no matter what the (3 comments)
This is where I write updates and information about Montana Living. Sometimes you'll see Real Estate stuff (my business) and sometimes you'll see Montana Local Events, Montanaisms and what I see and do when I travel around our state.
You will definitely see stuff about huckleberry picking, a family tradition, and quilting, my personal passion.
