Real Estate in Montana

I have to admit that when I first took the project of writing a custom template for a new Montana Real Estate website, I thought to myself, 'that is a beautiful state with a lot of scenery but there probably is not much opportunity fro home sales'. However, after a quick search on Google I was able to find this snapshot of the market on Yahoo.

The data is from Zillow and it really highlights the change in market value over the last year at the time of this writing there is a significant increase.

Now I am no economist but logic would indicate that if the value is increasing, that means that there is more interest in Montana Real Estate since value is often directly related to the demand.

So, I stand corrected.Apparently there is a need for REALTORS in that area because of this growth.

Tornadoes, Deadly Weather

I had a chance to catch the show on NOVA last week about Tornadoes. I was fascinated by how they form. It was so amazing to see some of the footage. Perhaps though the most significant information I noticed was the progress that science has made in recent years on increasing the 'lead time'.

Disasters and Survival

The recent tornado outbreak really drove home the importance of being ready in a natural disaster.

Just a few days ago a new site was launched to assist with emergency preparedness. On another of my blogs I posted about the site and how it is helping by providing survival kits to help people to cope during the days after being affected by such circumstances.

A survival plan is something that everyone needs to have well in mind BEFORE the event occurs.
