Maybe you are buying your first home in Montana, or perhaps you are relocating to Montana from another state. Either way, itís important that you educate yourself on Montana home loans before shopping for a home and mortgage. This article explains what you will need to know before buying a home in Montana:

The median price of a home in Montana is $99,500. Recently, homes in Montana have been appreciating at rates below the national average. However, in some parts of Montana, appreciation rates are at an all time high. As a result, income levels in many parts of Montana are too low to purchase a median-priced home with a conventional loan. In fact, homeowners in many Montana cities pay more than the recommended 30% of their incomes toward housing.

Average interest rates in Montana are above the national average, and job growth rates are below the national average. Both of these factors further the problem that Montana home prices have surpassed personal income growth.

Montana does not have a mortgage tax. Montana state law states that no loan can be secured by property of more than 40 acres. Montanaís Fair Housing Act prohibits mortgage lending discrimination against individuals based on their race, color, religion, gender, familial status, or national origin.
