Key Buying Strategies for Success in Bozeman’s Multifamily Market

As Bozeman’s multifamily market grows increasingly competitive, investors need a strategic approach to ensure success. SterlingCRE Advisors’ Casey Rose, CCIM emphasizes the importance of selectivity in location and property characteristics. With rising vacancy rates and an influx of new supply, understanding market dynamics and leveraging off-market opportunities are crucial. Here are key considerations to help you make informed investment decisions in this evolving market.

Importance of Selectivity

When investing in multifamily properties in Bozeman and the broader Gallatin Valley, it’s crucial to be extremely selective about the location and vintage of the property.

The age and condition of a multifamily property—referred to as its vintage—play a significant role in determining its investment potential. Newer properties often come with modern amenities and design features that attract higher-paying tenants, but they also come with higher price tags and more competition. On the other hand, older properties might offer lower entry prices but could require substantial renovations and updates to meet current tenant expectations.

The influx of new supply and increasing vacancy rates are making the market more competitive. Consequently, prices are dropping to attract tenants, especially for larger multifamily properties.

If you’re considering a property with rents set at the top of the market, particularly those located far from town, caution is advised. The critical question is whether you can refill vacant spaces at those high lease rates. Understanding the attainable rent levels for different areas and building types is essential for making sound investment decisions in this competitive environment.

Bozeman’s multifamily properties rarely hit the public market. To find a lucrative deal, you should seek off-market opportunities.
