Real Estate Tips:
Keep in mind that there are investment opportunities past just traditional stocks and bonds. Commodities are an asset class with both risks and rewards but can provide hedges against inflation. Also look at real estate income trusts to invest into the real estate market without being tied to individual pieces of property. Investing in real estate is one way to earn a return on your money as long as you choose your property wisely and purchase at a fair price. You can purchase a home and sell it when it increases in value. You can also purchase rental properties that provide you with an income, although you must deal with the headaches of being a landlord. Investing in real estate investment trusts (REITs) is another way to invest in real estate without having to actually own a physical property.

    1. i used to live near missoula, i cant wait to move back ! im in south florida now 🙁 haha great video i loved it

    2. one day i would like to go in montana state but for the moment it's very difficult ,so you have a beautiful country,and i hope

    3. Did I hear him correctly? At the end of the video he called it "Montanar"? Why do people who say "New Yawk" move their "r" to states like "Montanar" and "Warshington"? I don't understand how that works. I love it when people tell me I have a "Montana accent". Riiiight…

      One thing he doesn't mention is the winter in Montana. Having grown up there, I can attest that the winters, especially on the east side, can be brutal. It's not unusual for West Yellowstone to be the coldest town in the lower 48 at various times in the winter.

      Whitefish, Columbia Falls and the greater Flathead Valley are pretty much overrun with California transplants, so the culture there (and the cost of living) isn't necessarily reflective of the state as a whole. Bozeman and Missoula are also college towns. There's nothing wrong with that, but if you want an authentic Montana experience, get out to some of the smaller towns, too. Libby, in the NW, is definitely worth a look. There is abundant natural beauty and a slow pace that helps you enjoy it. There's lots of wilderness around, and it's grizzly country in a big way so be mindful when you're in the woods.
