I have made some changes around here..

With a view to freshening things up, the design and format of the Best of Bozeman Downtown Real Estate page has been tweaked. Previously the list was presented in the form of a top 10 of properties. However this I have more recently concluded, was too arbitrary and required judgements I was uncomfortable with. While the number of properties featured will remain restricted to 10 (at least for now) they will not be presented with a suggestion of rank.

Equally the geographical boundaries previously imposed have now extended and property types expanded to include and reflect the changing nature of downtown. While I will continue to restrict listings within at least reasonable assertion of being downtown, I will incorporate those on the periphery where they represent value or interest. Commercial property can now be found here as long as it carries with it at least some form of residential capacity. However, new construction and “off plan” developments will still fall outside of consideration for the reasons previously detailed in the “not so small, small print”.

Tim, September 2022.

What it is.

The Best of Bozeman is a weekly updated, curated list of some of the best downtown real estate listings currently available for sale.

The prime real estate offerings featured here have been selected using a proprietary formula that attributes weighting to numerous factors. These include: Location, Value, Condition and a host of other variables.

There are no price or size minimum or maximum parameters set for inclusion. A small cottage is as likely to feature as one of Bozeman’s most historic mansions. Properties are selected independently without inducement. 

I make no claim of definitive expertise, naturally some judgements relating to property are subjective. This must always be kept in mind. However, I believe my research and the data of fact, is sound. Consequently, I trust this collection of “cherry picked” real estate can be a useful resource to a broad spectrum of prospective buyers.

And so to the listings:

    THE BEST OF BOZEMAN “NOT SO SMALL” PRINT

    The Best of Bozeman Downtown Real Estate List is restricted to a loosely defined area North of Kagy, South of Oak, East of 19th and West of Highland. In certain cases a particularly interesting listing outside this area may be included.  The requisite elements for inclusion are that the property is listed with a cooperating MLS brokerage and it is not a new build.  My rationale for excluding new build is that I am not a building surveyor and not a professional judge of build quality.  Secondly price points are often dictated by factors not entirely market driven and lastly, I want someone to have had experience of living in the property.

    Secondly, Schools. They are not given significant weighting in this list for a number of reasons.  The main being that my specialist area of Bozeman, frankly, has no bad schools. If there is a specific school that buyers wish their children to attend then clearly, they will address their search accordingly.

     

    Finally, this is an attempt to adapt some science to partly un-scientific process. I make no claim of definitive expertise, naturally some judgements relating to property are subjective and in these assessments are elements of my own judgement and opinion. While, I believe my research and the data of fact is sound, this should be kept in mind.  I will do my best to keep the information here up to date and to the best of my knowledge accurate. 

    However, NO assurance of absolute accuracy in any area is either claimed or implied.
