realtor problems
Posted by Frank42 (+23) 6 years ago
My family is moving to Miles City, wife got a job up there. Her company hired a local realtor to find a place for us. So far it's been excuses and not a lot of help. Is this common with all realtors up there or just Hardesty?

Housing is scarce in Miles City. That is the first thing people should check before assuming they can find a home that fits their needs. There just may not be anything in your budget and price range.

Miles City has excellent realtors, they're not the problem. Housing is really scarce in Miles City. It's reality, not an excuse. Choosing a different real estate company won't solve your issue.

To set the record straight, the couple was looking for a rental and they had pets. Rentals and rentals that allow pets are very scarce! The rental market has a strong turn around. A landlord will fill a vacancy within a week to a qualified renter with a deposit. The realtor was trying to help them locate a rental, even though her main job is selling real estate. Thank you for the positive comments from the community, it was greatly appreciated.

The population of Miles City has been almost constant for 100 years. Up a thousand, down a thousand, but basically right around 9,000 since 1917. That is more than a bit odd but, hey! that's us.

Because of that, you see very, very little spec construction and the rental market is TIGHT. Last time it was easy to find a rental, Reagan was president and the Milwaukee went bankrupt.

Because this is also not a high income neighborhood, rentals aren't all that worthwhile. It's why so many rental projects are aimed at low income. That's where the money is, in subsidized housing.

If you think it's bad here, try Bozeman. If you aren't a millionaire, you aren't living there.
