Our city is small in nature but what makes our microeconomy tick and how is it fueled? There is no doubt Bozeman specifically is growing like crazy year after year. How does the growth affect our day to day, the real estate market, and the overall trajectory of where we are headed?

Both of these reports cover topics from demographics, real estate, job market, healthcare, education, agriculture, transportation, and so much more.

Have you or someone you know been considering moving to Bozeman, Montana? Well, we are here to tell you to spread the word about how awful Bozeman is ;) 

Elevation: Let’s discuss everything there is to hate about Bozeman. First off, it’s located 4,800 feet above sea level so the air is thinner and there is less air pressure so if you plan on doing some baking, good luck!
