Review of Bozeman, Montana

Affordable rentals are a rarity
Star Rating - 1/6/2017
The housing stats are flawed for the cost of rentals in Bozeman. I don't know where they got their information. Perhaps they came to these rates based on an average including the surrounding communities. A quick search on Craigslist will reveal that there is no such thing as any housing for less than $600; if you found a studio apt for that price, or less, it would be a hovel an old motel room or a room in someone's basement. For one to live alone in this town would cost at least $800/month for rent. Most rentals are $1,000+. And if you have a pet, you can forget it. If a place is posted on Craigslist that is affordable and/or allows pets, it is snatched up immediately (within an hour or two). Good luck if you are a regular person trying to find affordable housing (30% of gross earnings); you will need it.
