For those who have not been so lucky finding a place, we hope this guide will help you get that much closer to finding a home.

Is it challenging to find a rental in Bozeman? The short answer is YES, it very much can be. We live in a wonderful community that is quickly becoming not just a stop for tourists but a permanent home for many out-of-staters. Montana State University combined with the working professionals who are not yet homeowners creates a large number of renters for only a limited supply of actual rentals available.  

Timing: Start your search ASAP. The reality is that there is a limited supply of rentals within city limits and it is very competitive in certain rental price points. Though Bozeman is a very dog friendly…

I want to touch on investing in Bozeman. Real Estate inventory for 2019 has continued to be lower than expected and prices have increased as you are probably well aware of. However, this results in more renters staying put where they are as buying their first home could be unachievable or more difficult.  While this is an unfortunate outcome of higher priced homes, let's dive into the how's and why's investing in Bozeman.

With Bozeman housing prices increasing every year, is it still feasible to find a profitable rental property here in Bozeman?

RENTAL STATS

"In Bozeman, the most recent American Community Survey figures estimate that 56% of households are renters and 44% are owners." In looking back since 2000, the number of renters vs. owner households has maintained the same high ratios (55-57% of households). The distribution of the renter households vs. owner households has not significantly changed in the last 16 years.

In the last few years, the City of Bozeman has reinforced the how, where, what of renting out properties in Bozeman (VRBOs and short term rentals). There are numerous factors to consider (i.e. location, zoning, etc, etc) beyond this list, but this is to kick off the basics when shopping for a property that has investment opportunity. Specifically, this blog is looking at "a main house and ADU" as a rental property. 

  • Property Type: Main House and ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) 
  • Where: Located in city limits of Bozeman 
  • What: Review both HOA covenants and bylaws (or possible Property Management Company to verify) AND review the city of Bozeman ordinances for specific restriction language
