For homebuyers today, luxury doesn’t necessarily equate to price point — often it is actually quite personal. Luxury can be more time at home with family, proximity to friends and loved ones, or convenience in terms of amenities and features.

What does this mean for real estate professionals?

It means that we too have to start thinking of luxury differently. Its definition is as unique as every client who walks through the

Considering it can snow in Montana at any time (and often does, in fact, in early summer), we fully embrace the blissful few months when we can take a nice, scenic drive without worry. There’s something nostalgic about packing up some snacks and hitting the road for a relaxing Sunday drive, and these roads happen to be perfect for just that.

1. Beartooth Highway Tenn4ever / TripAdvisor This is the time of year where the Beartooth Highway is nice and clear. And considering it's one of the most scenic drives in the entire country, if you live anywhere near Red Lodge, you should hit the road this summer. 2. Highway 12 around Lolo Pass dunadan / TripAdvisor The pass is the highest point of the historic Lolo Trail, between the…

Yet some worry that helping borrowers could actually exacerbate the housing

market’s main problem: a dearth of new homes

By Christina Rexrode and Laura Kusisto June 29, 2018 7:00 a.m. ET    

Reese and Kyle Rademacher weren’t sure how they would afford a down payment to buy a home until their real-estate agent mentioned an offbeat idea: crowdfund the money from friends and family.

Mrs. Rademacher, a 28-year-old construction technician, set up an online profile with a program called HomeFundMe to solicit donations. Her parents and a few others responded, and in March the Rademachers closed on a $320,000 home in Cheyenne, Wyo.

HomeFundMe, a service launched by lender CMG Financial last year, is among a growing suite of

The 10 Most Expensive (and Exclusive!) Neighborhoods in the U.S.

By Lance Lambert | Jun 25, 2018   most-exp-zips2 Getty Images; realtor.com

It's the great national good news/bad news joke. The good: Americans are richer today than at any time in this country’s history. The bad: Most of their combined net worth (just over $100 trillion, according to the Federal Reserve) is held by very few. And yet, our nation of haves and have-nots is obsessed with those haves, the lucky folks buying up private jets, six-figure sports cars, eight-figure pieces of art, and one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan LPs. We track their movements with a combination of lust and envy.

And there's one way the ultrarich are just like the rest of us: Their largest spending category

If you have a few million spare euros laying around, you can now live like Karl Lagerfeld—or at least the way he lived in the '90s. Lagerfeld's former German villa, where he lived between 1991 and 1998, is going on sale. The property is named Villa Jako, in honor of Lagerfeld's longtime partner Jacques de Bascher, who died in 1989. As Women's Wear Daily reports, the villa is in Hamburg’s exclusive Blankenese district.

The three-bedroom house, originally named Villa Schüler, was built in the 1920s for shipping

Summer in Bozeman and Livingston

Today is the summer solstice. The sound of lawn mowers rings late into the evening as we maneuver maintaining the grass in between rain storms and glimpses of warm sun. The grass literally grows in front of your eyes! Hiking is being enjoyed and adding up in donations to the Gallatin Valley Land Trust Trails Day fundraiser. The rivers are running high while fishing is on the backburner. While hiking is in full swing, remember to be bear aware as well as mountain lion aware.

Spring in Bozeman and Livingston

In early May, as temperatures warm, the ice melts off and the garage gets switched out. Skis are maintained and stored, and out come the clubs, bikes, canoes and kayaks, and all the footwear to accompany these activities. The mountain bikes stay dormant until later in May or even early June, as environmentally correct locals wait for the miles and miles of trails in the valley to properly dry out. Hiking is the best way to enjoy the trails and get the calves ready for mountain
