The greater area of Manhattan, Montana, just 20.5 miles from Bozeman, is drawing much attention from those looking to live in a smaller town or a rural area.

In addition, it's a haven of quiet, just a short jaunt from the amenities provided by a larger city. We've compiled a list of frequently asked questions, but don't hesitate to give us a call; we would love to chat more!

For the past several years, Bozeman, Montana, was named the country’s fastest-growing micropolitan area. The 2020 Census officially pushed the population into a metropolitan, with 53,293 residents. Thirty years ago, that number was around 23,000. Today, what was once a small, agricultural college town is now one of the most sought-after cities in the nation.

Livingston, Montana, is known for its eclectic population. Cowboys, artists, chefs, writers, outdoor enthusiasts, and entrepreneurs all call this little town "home."  What was once a railroad town and a gateway town to Yellowstone National Park is now a hip mix of food, shopping, and entertainment tucked at the base of what is aptly called Paradise Valley.

If you are planning to shop, allocate more time than you think you will need. The retail scene is incredible, with new stores popping up all the time. Livingston is known for having many artists and writers as residents, so galleries and bookstores have always been plentiful.

Big Sky, Montana is bustling. There's a lot to look forward to in this mountain community, from infrastructure improvements like water and sewer to luxury hotels and expansions at Big Sky Resort.

Early in 2022, BASE will open with a gym, fitness facility, indoor climbing wall, art and culture wing, flex space, and behavioral health facilities. This summer, Len Hill Park, a part of the center, opened and is now the permanent home to Music in the Mountains, a free outdoor concert series. And this winter, a refrigerated ice hockey rink is slated to open. In addition, the project expands the trail system and provides a 43% increase…

It hasn’t taken long for Livingston to go from quietly flying under the radar, to becoming one of Montana’s sought-after places to live. The interest is understandable. The town itself is an eclectic mix of retail shops, bookstores, art galleries, western wear, and outdoor gear. In other words, there’s something for everyone.

The Yellowstone River flows right through town, and Paradise Valley is home to some spectacular hiking, camping, hot springs, and of course, the north entrance to Yellowstone National Park.

It’s a seller’s market right now, meaning, there are more people looking for homes than are available. There are currently 128 homes on the market, ranging from $65.9K to $25M. In March 2021, the median list price was $409K, trending…
