Here Are The Top 6 Most Expensive Towns In Montana, 2023
When we talk about Montana, you will most likely hear the words, "it's so beautiful" followed by, "it's so expensive".
In the last few years, Montana has become the ultimate escape from reality, especially for out-of-state folks. From all over the United States, people are flocking to the Last Best Place to raise their kids, start families, and some, retire.
With all of those fun dreams at the seams, some may want to take into consideration the 2023 most expensive towns in Montana before they pack up the family and head to Big Sky Country.
Here are the Top 6 Most Expensive Towns In Montana, in 2023.
1. Bozeman. Are we really shocked by this? I mean, if you are currently living here like I am, this is no shock. Finding an apartment that doesn't cost $2k (minimum) is incredibly difficult, then adding in all the other living expenses. Phew! You need to make at least $5k per month just to have a little extra spending money.
2. Manhattan. With a population of less than 2000, this small Montana town has been seeing an increase in housing prices and a median income of around $60,000.
3. Missoula. Listed in the Top 10 Most Beautiful River Cities in America, Missoula is a college town that continues to flourish. With almost 20,000 more people than Bozeman, Missoula still seems to have its housing a bit more under control.
4. Hamilton. With less than 5,000 people and a median income of less than $40,000, Hamiliton's average home price is a whopping $224k. Voted the drunkest and in the top 10 for most redneck town, Hamilton is making lots of lists this year.
5. Whitefish. With a median home value of almost half a million, Whitefish is becoming a tourist favorite.
6. Red Lodge. In 2022, Red Lodge was listed as the 13th most expensive, it has certainly crept its way up the list.
Some may ask why Big Sky isn't on this list. The reason is, Big Sky is considered an unincorporated Rocky Mountain Community. Not necessarily a "town" but often called and considered a town.
