Review of Billings, Montana


Hey, Billings! This is NOT California! Wake up!
Star Rating - 3/29/2019
The housing market here is a JOKE! Higher per square foot than comparable locations in CA, but quality is MUCH less. Job market here is a JOKE as well. Yea, no sales tax. Great. But...income and property taxes are as high or higher than in CA, and government regulations (air, water, etc) are worse than CA! No wonder national or international food companies set up shop in Idaho or neighboring states. Montana is a state that needs employers, but those outside the oil and gas industries are cheap, and employers already there now would actually be better off moving operations to other states -- including CA!
