Estate and Luxury Homes in Billings Real Estate

    If it were possible to custom-create a state with ideal settings for luxury homes, that state would look like Montana. From lakefront to hilltop to grasslands, luxury home sites in Billings are unrivaled.

    Sure, we Montanans are a hardy, rugged bunch, but that doesn’t preclude us from enjoying the finer things in life, such as a luxurious place to come home at the end of the day. And, lest you think that Billings lacks a high-end home market, read on.

    Billings’ Diverse Luxury Home Market

    The question we field most often is easily answered by “no.” Billings’ luxury homes for sale are not merely glorified cabins. In fact, if we could actually pick up some of these homes and plop them down in Beverly Hills, they would fit right in.

    Architectural styles range from ranch-style to Georgian-inspired to ultra-modern, custom-built stunners.

    Billings neighborhoods of note include:

    • Augusta Ranch Estates – Golfers in particular love this community for its proximity to Yellowstone Country Club. Homes are oversized (the average square footage is more than 3,500) and typically sit on large lots with stunning views.
    • Sand Cliff – Located west of Billings Logan International Airport, homes here sit on view lots that range in size from 24,000 square feet to 85,000 square feet. Development here began in the mid-1970s.
    • Ironwood Estates – Located on Billings’ west end, Ironwood Estates is the quintessential Billings neighborhood, providing a feeling of seclusion, yet only minutes from downtown. Homes here are large and you will find many ranchers here.
    • Blackacre – Near the downtown medical corridor.

    Billings also offers vacant acreage on which to build your dream estate, hobby farm or equestrian property.

    Selling a Luxury Home

    The luxury home sale process is significantly different from that undertaken to sell lower-priced homes. The buyer pool is smaller and the competition is fiercer. Buyers typically have more time to shop and are far more discriminating in their choices. The home inspection is more involved and appraisals are often confusing. The buyer’s lender may throw in yet more complications and time-eaters.

    The sale of an estate or luxury home requires the assistance of an expert. It is this segment of the residential market where marketing methods matter more than in any other. Ensure you hire someone who knows how to advertise to a high-end prospect, and who has a network of local contacts to tap to help get the word out about your listing.

    Determining an accurate market value for luxury property is also challenging for the novice. Since the market value of any home is based on the sales prices of similar homes, the first problem an agent will encounter is trying to find comparable luxury homes. High-end properties vary in their features and amenities so comparing them isn’t something that should be trusted to a rookie agent.

    When it’s time to sell your luxury property, give Amber Uhren & Company a call.
