    So patients get high on nitrous, get their wisdom teeth removed, then blow blood on a canvas to be hung in the waiting room?

    Sorry, got carried away.

    Just out of curiosity, what's a Hygienist pull in MT hourly? That's my wife's gig.

    Would love a relocation there.

    It needs to be a lot to afford to live here. Bozeman is now officially expensive, Big Sky is expensive and housing is scarce.

    I snagged a lease there in June, had no problems finding a cheap (relative to CO or Jackson, half the price) apartment..

    I can walk to ze lifts.

    I had a much harder time finding an apartment in Tahoe, competing with no less than 10 other candidates at a time

    Lemme guess, Big Sky Apts or Cedar Creek or Hill Condos.

    And if it is Hill Condos, contact your landlord, the HOA is going to be meeting over labor day and a faction wants to raise the dues by 84%. Guess who will pay that?

    Not unless his lease has a rider.
    Most condo HOA's woefully underfund their capital reserves.

    Lake Condos going long term now eh?

    You wouldn't happen to be in Bldg 1 would you?

    Can't speak for the present but when I owned my Hill unit we had one of the better funded HOAs. However those buildings are approaching 40 years, were never built that well and have a lot of issues beyond a crappy paint job. The land they sit on is going to be too valuable some day for them to remain. Before I sold in 2006 I had seen drawings of a feeder lift from that area and ski in/ski out access.

    ^^^ I agree. Im jk, im not on the lake. Im on the corner there.

    I dont think that price is so bad. That much sq. ft in Teton Village, or anywhere CO, besides Aspen, would be $1400..

    Tahoe is similarly priced, but much more competition.

    I lived in Hill from 1994-2006. It was awesome being able to walk to work and not have to start your car.

    What floor? If you are on the 1st floor, your electric bills will be for you and heating your upstairs neighbors. My unit was a 3rd floor and I never had an electric bill greater than $ 40.00.

    The W/D is huge considering the options. The views are not bad and the access to the mountain trail system is pretty sweet. Too bad the Black Bear closed.

    What is your work situation?

    $35-$40/ hr. depending on performance, one of the better paying jobs in town. Definitely can afford more than a Hill Condo.

    About the replacing of the Hill condos...I just don't see how something like that would work. Would all the owners get a buyout? How could anybody ever get them all to agree to that? Can the buildings actually be condemned? This seems like a pretty big issue for the resort to deal with. I see a bunch of Hill condos for sale now, some have been for sale a long time. Would it be good or bad to own one when this all went down? But again, I just can't see how it will happen. Have you heard any possible solutions floated around?

    it is called eminent domain. and all it takes is enough money and support of local government (including the court) ...

    Nope, just spit-balling. I cannot recall how many actual units there are (75-100)??? but a buyout would probably not be that expensive given the size of the lot they sit on and the fact that the HOA also owns the parking overflow across the street.

    I haven't looked to see what is for sale there now or at what price. I bought mine (Studio) in the mid 50s and sold for 140. That was before the 2007 crash and a lot of units changed hands during that period so the current owners would want at least 110 for a studio and probably 200+ for a loft unit for a buyout to happen. Roughly 15 million.

    Considering what some units are now selling for that piece of land seems ripe.

    AS for who would ramrod such a project, my guess is it would come from BSOA, the resort has nothing to do with this other than being a neighbor.

    Thanks for the info bunion. Would you mind sharing your thoughts about what else is wrong in the construction of the buildings? I'm thinking about getting a crash pad at the mountain and the Hills are the obvious choice if all you really want is a place to sleep. Any info you can provide about the place would be much appreciated.

    Hmmmm where to start. Disclaimer: I am speaking as someone who sold their unit in 2006. Some things may have changed or been addressed since that time.

    1. There was no sheathing on the exterior walls, just siding nailed over the framing. If memory serves me correctly I "think" the framing was 2x6 but would not swear to it.

    2. What insulation was in those walls is now 40 years old and was in pretty bad shape when I looked. That said, a lot of the units that were bought and sold were gutted to the studs and had new insulation and drywall installed.

    3. This is the big one, the 1st floor units were all pretty damp. Black Mold is common. If you are shopping for a studio, try and find a 2nd or better yet 3rd floor unit. My heating bills on the 3rd floor were non-existent. (looking quickly at the listings there are at least 2 3rd floor units available).

    Depending on the current price if you can get into a studio for < 135 I don't see how you could lose money.

    Looks like one of those third floor units is going for 130k and the other for 139k. Both have some obvious weirdness in the design/layout. Can't believe they didn't sheath the exterior, maybe that was common back then but to me it looks like the siding is well on its way to rotting. I heard the proposed uptick in HOA dues got voted down, so there probably won't be any improvements any time soon. Pretty grim.

    Well, on the bright side, HOA dues were pretty low and the HOA was well funded. Makes me think they are treading water instead of sinking good money into a corpse.

    Understandable, but makes me not very enthusiastic about investing my own money into said corpse. I mean they can't even paint the buildings? That's pretty amazing to me.

    Some friends sold their 1 bedroom Hill this summer because they were worried about the shape of the buildings and what it will cost to fix them up. We looked at some in May but decided, based on nothing but our friend's experience and our eyes, that we weren't willing to get a Hill. Doesn't mean we were right, but that's what it felt like to us and it's what our friends felt too.

    I hear you. But I also know people who are happy there and it works for them. I'm sure a big part of that is the cost. My wife is not a huge skier, so she's not willing to sacrifice other aspects of our lives to make this happen. I just want a place to sleep that I don't need to check in and out of. I chase the storms so planning ahead for lodging is a hassle.

    Anyway I'm going to look at a couple and see for myself.

    Yeah, they were a bargain back in the day.

    A friend bought 2 at auction for 34K total, this was around mid 80s. When I moved to the Really Big in 91 you could get one for 36K.

    It worked out well for me and I built a lot of equity at < 500.00 a month instead of paying rent.
