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. I've created some questions to structure the conversation. 


1. Investing in the market is like investing in the stock market but can have greater returns in the long haul. 
2. If your cash is sitting in a checking account, it's collecting an insanely low interest rate per year.

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

The short answer is YES. The rental market demand is STRONG and there are simply not enough rentals with the number of students and additional residents moving to Bozeman every year.  


"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).

Short Term Rentals in Bozeman City Limits

While in theory renting out your property seems manageable on sites like Airbnb, VRBO, etc, there are key items you should know before entering the process. The below applies to properties within Bozeman's City Limits. 

Here are some questions to guide you in the process: 

Can you apply for a Short Term Rental license before you purchase a property? 
The short answer is No. 

You saw your neighbor's property on Airbnb, so why wouldn't you be able to rent your property? 
The question to ask is, does your neighbor have the licensing in place to rent as a Short Term Rental? Pay very close attention to your zoning and going about the process the RIGHT way.
