What’s it take to rent in Jackson?

JACKSON, WY — Looking for a roof to rent in Jackson?

Anyone who’s done it or has tried to do it will tell you it’s no easy task. Because Teton County is 97% protected/public land, costs of development and homeownership keep getting higher. But renters feel that burden, too. Low inventory plus high demand equals expensive housing.

According to the Wyoming Cost of Living Index released by The State of Wyoming Economic Analysis Division in the fall of 2018, the average rental cost for a two-bedroom apartment in Jackson, unfurnished and before utilities, is more than $2,000 per month.

Buckrail manages a Facebook page exclusively for rentals. 22 Rents is an online forum for people to post their available bedrooms, apartments, houses, sheds, closets… anywhere you could lay your head. It helped a new puppy find a home with his human. There are currently 4,600 members and more than 400 listings. If you’re looking for a place to stay, 22 Rents may be a good place to start. It’s a public group, but you do have to like Buckrail on Facebook to be accepted. If you’re reading this, you’re probably off to a good start.
