Great News For Those Tired Of Transplants Moving To Montana.
We all know that the last few years have been rough for a lot of locals.
Folks from all over have been moving to Montana, several of them from places with high home values, so when they show up to The Treasure State, they have money to spend. Of course, this has resulted in home prices soaring, which means a lot of Montanans hoping to become homeowners, can't.
This and a couple of other things may or may not have turned locals a little bitter when it comes to welcoming transplants, but if you find yourself part of that group, I have some great news for you.
Niche has come out with a list of the 2023's Best Places To Live In The United States and that data is based on a few different factors. So what statistics did they choose to look at? They were actually pretty meticulous in their research.
- Cost Of Living
- Higher Education
- Public Schools
- Crime And Safety
- Health And Fitness
- Outdoor Activities
They took all of those factors, combined them, and came up with the Top 50 best locations. I mean, a few of those categories scream Montana, right? Surely more than one Montana city or town made the Top 50, the question is how many?
Not one single Montana city or town made the Top 50. While some folks might be disappointed to hear this, especially in the business and retail industries in the state, many will be pleased that we didn't make the list.
Well, because every time we do well in one of these lists, or there is some popular television show highlighting the beauty of the state, people decide that Montana is where they want to be and many Montanans are fed up with it. So, for those who feel the state is "full", rejoice. This is good news.
