Even though Montana is the 4th largest state in terms of size, it ranks 48th in population with low population density, meaning there is plenty of space for those who want to move there. Montana’s population only surpassed one million people in 2015.
According to the American Trucking Association Moving and Storage Conference, Montana is 5th on the list among states where the number of inbound moves is more than twice higher than the number of outbound moves.
The nickname “Big Sky Country” conjures up visions of wide-open spaces and great national parks for most people. While that rings true for Montana, the state is more than that.
The cost of living in Montana is over 6% lower than the national average, according to ExitCalifornia.org. While the average income tends to be slightly lower than the national average, taxes are also lower, so money can go further in Montana than it can elsewhere.
Property taxes in Montana are low when compared to the rest of the country, so owning real estate and vehicles can be much more affordable than in other states, especially Napa Valley
Depending on where you’re thinking of relocating to in Montana, the climate can completely differ from one side of the state to the other. The western part of the state has more temperate weather, with cooler summers, milder winters and less wind than the eastern part of the state, which can be semi-arid and dry with harsh winters.
For many Californians, Montana’s winters can be a dealbreaker. The winter season is known to be harsh, with extreme cold and lots of snow. On the other hand, summers can get very hot, especially in the plains.
