As anyone who has visited Jackson Hole can attest, this particular section of Wyoming—the valley between the Teton Range and the Gros Ventre Range—is truly one of the most spectacular settings in the American West, if not all of the U.S.
To some, it’s a winter playground for the international jet set, while others think of it as a companion stop when exploring Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. But now more than ever, Jackson Hole has become a year-round destination appealing to visitors from all corners of the globe.
“There has been an increase in demand to be in Jackson year over year; all four seasons in Jackson provide new and different opportunities to experience the beauty of this area that keep people wanting to stay here,” explains Brandon Spackman, associate broker, Jackson Hole Sotheby’s International Realty. The region makes such an impression, it leads many visitors to look into putting down roots. “There is a strong trend nationally to move to mountain towns for the lifestyle offered, and Jackson seems to be at the top of the list. In addition, there are significant tax advantages to becoming a Wyoming resident which many take advantage of. Most of the land in the Jackson Hole valley is permanently protected from development. Less than 3% can be developed, so we have a very limited supply and a high demand.”
