I have broken down the numbers over a 5 year period.  I calculated anything over $800,000 in Bozeman City Limits. I went the extra step and broke the numbers down by quarter so you can decide when you should buy or sell your luxury home in Bozeman city limits.


  • Quarter 2 and Quarter 3 have the most home sales
  • Quarter 4 has the highest sales price but the fewest units sold


Please note I did not post 2014 as mentioned in the video.  I can tell you there were a total of 4 sales of $800,000.  Two homes sold in Jan and March with sales prices averaging $846,500.  One sale took place in June, averaging $800,000. The final sale took place in December and averaged $1,075,000.
