How Can We Address Montana’s Rapidly Rising Housing Prices?

Things that can’t go on forever usually don’t. But if you’re waiting for Montana’s housing prices to crash so you can buy a home, you might have a long wait. Thinking that today’s housing price situation is a bubble waiting to break is easier said than done since housing prices have increased faster than median income for most places in Montana for more than 20 years.

 

Dr. Pat Barkey, Director of the Bureau of Business and Economic Affairs at the University of Montana, joins the program to discuss this year’s Economic Outlook Seminar, which will take place in nine cities across the state and focus on Montana housing costs.

 

Later, Florida Congresswoman Kat Cammack will talk about the future of the Republican Party and provide us with a Congressional update ahead of her appearance at the Montana GOP Winter Kick-Off in Helena this Friday.
