Housing in Yellowstone County
Almost half of renters in the United States pay 1/3 or more of their monthly income for rent (third column above). Compare that with rent in Yellowstone County and Montana in the first two columns. The optimal rent to household income ratio is 25% to 28% or less. When you pay more than 30% of your income towards rent, your ability to pay for food, transportation, health care, education, and savings becomes increasingly difficult.

Billings: The Trailhead of Montana
The largest and fastest growing city in Montana, Billings boasts a population of 167,000 in the greater metropolitan area. Residents enjoy the amenities of the ‘big city’ while having a small town attitude which reflects most of the communities we serve in our four state region.
Billings has been largely unaffected by the economic downtown and housing bust of recent years. This is mostly due to its large trading area at the epicenter of Spokane, Boise, Denver, and Fargo. Essentially, Billings provides services to most of Montana, northern Wyoming, and the western portions of North and South Dakota. The lack of a state sales tax is also a big draw for retail sales.
