Hold on to your hats folks, as it appears that Helena will be coming into it's own over the next 3 or so years.

I'm scared. Bozeman took off right after they put in North 19th.

I'm going to look at a house today. It's one of only a few that I can even look at (being a single income person). I feel the clock ticking on how much more of a window I have (I'm thinking 3-6 months) before I'm totally priced out for good. Scary! I feel so hurried and pressured to buy while I still can.

Are you looking in Helena? What parts do you like?

Do you really think things are going to change that fast in this area?

With MDT (Montana Dept of Trans.) tied up on the S. Helena interchange through fall, the current plan seem to put construction of the Custer Interchange around 2009. But as everybody knows, there's tons of development going in NOW and waiting that long to build the interchange is going to be a mess. So I believe there is a lot of pressure being put on the developers out there to foot some of the construction cost. That is what was done on S. Helena and put it on the fast track.
Fortunately, that whole area is very commercial with very little residential development nearby. But with these "big city" amenities coming here, housing costs are definitely going to keep skyrocketing.

I can't picture where Custer is at... where is it from the new Lowes? Is it near the Courtyard Inn?

Custer is the street the new Lowe's / Home Depot / Costco are all on. Last week they began moving dirt on a new development south of Lowe's / south of Custer / east of Power Townsend where a Sportsman's Warehouse and a variety of other shopping are due to go in. The developers are all leaving areas of land untouched for where on/off ramps and the widening of Custer where go. Hopefully the developers will step up the the plate and pay for some of the interchange because they will directly benefit from the accessability it would create.

Cedar is the interchange where Perkin's is too btw.
