For the past 10 years the website HomeSnacks has been putting out a list of the 10 most expensive towns to live in for each state.

The way they come up with their list each year comes down to two simple questions.

  1. How much do money do I make?
  2. How much do I have spend to live there?

That means in a town where housing costs $40,000, but you make $100,000 is actually cheaper to live than a place where you pay $20,000 for housing yet you only make $50,000.

What is the most expensive town to live in for Montana?

I don't think this answer will comes as a surprise to anyone.

What actually might be more surprising is that Bozeman WASN'T number 1 last year.

They were the second most expensive place to live in Montana last year. Last year's most expensive place to live was Whitefish, which dropped to number 4 this year.

Does that perhaps indicate a cooling off of the housing market in Montana? It's hard to say, but I think most residents would appreciate less outsiders buying houses for thousands over asking sight unseen.

We've got the list of the 10 most expensive towns to live in for Montana in 2023 in the gallery below. The surprising thing is living in the "big cities" of Montana (outside of the college towns) is a good bargain according to HomeSnacks list.
