Living in Jackson Hole, WY offers a lifestyle filled with unique characteristics. The dramatic Teton Mountain Range panoramas, open wildlife corridors, the best skiing in North America at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, spectacular golfing, abundant fly-fishing and endless outdoor recreational options attract those who desire a life of adventure, culture and natural beauty. Combining the lifestyle benefits along with land preservation efforts and the practicality of Wyoming’s tax advantages makes Jackson Hole more compelling than ever to consider as your primary residence. Read on to discover more reasons Jackson Hole is so special.


  • Protected in Perpetuity
    • Over 97% of Jackson Hole land is forever preserved as national forests, national parks, the National Elk Refuge and private conservation lands. These conservation efforts leave only a small percentage of land available for private ownership. The limited development and scarcity of available real estate protect the character and openness of Jackson Hole in perpetuity.

  • Tax Friendly Jackson Hole, WY
    • Wyoming’s tax-climate benefits are another reason Jackson Hole makes so much sense to consider primary residence ownership. Both Bloomberg and the Tax Foundation.org have rated Wyoming as one of the most tax-friendly states in the U.S. year after year. In addition, Wyoming was rated as the top tax-friendly state by Barrons. Residents of Wyoming reap significant tax benefits due to its tax certainty, asset and creditor protection and state budget surplus of $1 billion. Wyoming’s lack of income tax, allows homeowners to have more control over their financial well-being.

  • Air Accessibility

Located at the base of the Tetons in Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole is serviced by direct flights to and from many major cities. Now one can fly direct from JFK, Denver, Salt Lake City, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Minneapolis, Chicago, Newark, Atlanta, San Francisco, Houston, and Los Angeles.
