I can't be the only one that thinks, "what in the world do these people do for a living that they can afford these home prices?". Throw in the fact that I see a lot of new cars in the driveways of these homes and I come to the conclusion that I've clearly failed in life.
Imagine waking up everyday and stepping outside only to be surrounded by a million acres of some of the most beautiful scenery in the world? What would something like that cost? Could you even put a price on it?
We're in trouble. This isn't a "shake your head" broken record thing anymore. Montana towns are in deep, serious, fast-moving financial transformation. I've sugar-coated my personal concerns about Bozeman's change up until now. I can't do that anymore.
You've at least driven right by it 100 times, as this RV campground is smack in the middle of Ennis, Montana. It's been for sale for just a few weeks according to Realtor.com but it's now listed as "Pending".
Well, for starters, for 25 million you can buy your own town. Yep. A whole town, just for you. The actual price is 25,525,000...but what's half a million dollars when you are worth over a quarter of a billion, right?
For 28 million dollars you could be the new owner of the Crazy Elk Ranch in Three Forks. I realize that is a hefty price tag, but it's an amazing home. For starters, there are 8 Bedrooms and 9 Baths and over 9000 square feet on over 3700 acres and the views are breathtaking.
You'll be hard-pressed to find a bargain in Ennis, Montana these days if you're looking to avoid Bozeman's out of control prices. One of my favorite little towns on the planet is commanding some serious cash for major fixer-uppers.
