Cities like Stanley boast median home values of $584,801, highlighting the area's desirability, possibly due to its scenic beauty and outdoor recreational opportunities. On the other end of the spectrum, Challis presents more affordable options with a median home value of $282,054, offering a different appeal perhaps tied to its smaller community feel and historic significance. Ketchum stands out with an impressive median home value of $1,519,286, underscoring its status as a luxury destination, likely due to its proximity to world-class ski resorts and upscale amenities.

Kid Rock has a rough-and-tumble image, but he didn't exactly grow up in humble circumstances. His childhood home was a 5,660-square-foot luxury home in Michigan, situated on 5.5 acres that includes 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, 5-car garage, along with a partially finished walkout and guest house. There's also a 3 stall horse barn, regulation tennis court and inground pool. The 22-room house was renovated in 2004, and it also has a hot tub and a wet bar.
