The housing market in Montana has gone through the roof, and it looks like it won't stop any time soon. More and more people are moving to our state to get out of urban areas as more companies let employees work remotely. When I was growing up in Montana, occasionally, my dad would point to a home and say, "That's a million-dollar home right there." When I would look, I would normally see a huge borderline mansion home on a huge piece of land and I would think, "Yep, a million dollar home." At the time they were a rare sight.

Now, when someone tells me, "That's a million-dollar home right there," I think "No, way, SERIOUSLY?!" So, I went looking across the state to see what "Million Dollar Homes" Montana has to offer today. I set up a few rules for searching. I set my search for a maximum of $1,000,000 and it had to be a house. There are a lot of homes that you can get for well above the million, but I wanted it to be realistic. So, here is what I found from across the state if you had a cool million in your pockets to spend.

As you can see, a lot to choose from--way more than when I was a kid. I only searched for houses. If you want a million-dollar apartment/condo look to Bozeman. If you want a million-dollar townhome look to Whitefish.

I Bought an Old House in Missoula: It's My First Time Renovating

As with any renovation project, we ran into a few mishaps when we began renovating the 1952 ranch-style home we bought in Missoula, but some of the changes we made were easy and immediately rewarding.
