Many buyers come to Jackson Hole to invest in part because of the tremendous tax advantages of doing so. Wyoming does not have state income taxes for owners declaring residency in Teton County. Because of this, Wyoming has become the top pick for wealthy people searching for exclusive resort real estate. There are also other tax advantages to owning real estate in Jackson Hole when owners turn their property into a business and rent it out on the short term vacation rental market. Ron has more than 20 years of experience in property management and Jackson Hole Real Estate Company, LLC has a dedicated team to manage vacation rental properties. Ron understands the investment opportunities in the Jackson Hole condominium markets well. He can assist buyers in understanding all of the benefits of owning vacation rental properties.

Many Jackson Hole Real Estate investors overlook the value of purchasing and owning ranch land and agricultural Real Estate investments for their portfolio. Recently our family purchased the White Arrow Ranch in Idaho. It is a few hours drive from Jackson Hole near Twin Falls Idaho. We had an interest in looking into greenhouse development and desired to place some of our assets outside the resort industry. We are not keen on too wide of diversification, such as mutual funds or investing in the ramped up stock market, so we invested in a ranch with a hot spring located on it. The ranch also came with first line water rights. To our surprise we found our family ranch to be a great asset with many tax and investment incentives as well as protection from becoming too dependent on the supply chain economy we find ourselves in. We also use the ranch for large family gatherings and other recreation activities. You can take a look at our new investment at lauraleefarms.com

I can honestly laugh and say that by default I have become an expert in the field of Jackson Hole Commercial Real Estate. I started listing and selling hotels and commercial buildings within 18 months of getting my license 30 years ago as a Jackson Hole Associate for Jackson Hole Realty. Before our industry even recognized fax machine signatures, I remember sending fed-x packages overnight for both the owners wanting to sell and the buyers wanting to invest in these large deals. As the youngest licensed Realtor in Jackson Hole, at the time, I was involved in complex closings with several lawyers on each side of the closing table were hissing at each other to win for their clients and also wanting me to lower my commissions. I would always tell them that I was very valuable and would have studied to become a lawyer if it paid as much as closing these large deals.
Fast forward 30 years and as a Broker/ Owner of the Jackson Hole Real Estate Company, we personally manage, buy and sell these same hotels and commercial investment properties and can professionally assist others with cash flow analysis, market conditions and how to properly list or sell a commercial hotel or retail property. We also have one of the only property management companies that assist with advanced reservation systems through our powerful jacksonhole.net website. We can also provide management and other needs for investors needing those services. You can visit us for those services at propertymanagementjacksonhole.com or e-mail Ron Miller direct at email@example.com
Here are six tips from our Jackson Hole Real Estate Broker, Ron Miller, to add value to a Jackson Hole commercial or investment real estate investment. Ron has invested in several hotels and other commercial ventures as well as rental homes and condo properties in Jackson Hole and is the leading expert in the field.
1. A good investment property at a fair price in Jackson Hole can be fairly valuable to an investor that is smart and good at it. It is important to put together great terms and price in the original contract. Ron believes he makes most of his gains the day he enters into a contract if he accomplishes getting the right price and terms.
2. Use a great local Real Estate attorney that is good with drafting complex contracts to protect your interest. Using the typical boilerplate commercial real estate form in Wyoming and an agent with little experience to draft a complex Jackson Hole real estate contract is not a wise move and can be a detriment to getting a deal done right.
3. Good negotiation skills as a buyer or seller in Jackson Hole Commercial Real Estate are very important when purchasing or selling. The more experience you have it helps as you address concerns in all the complex due diligence matters that arise. Using a highly skilled expert Realtor like Ron Miller is huge to get through tough negotiations with buyers and sellers. You can never pay a broker enough that has expert skill sets according to Ron.
4. Ron also recommends putting the buyers and sellers together if at all possible. It is an advantage not to have to relay a message that may be misinterpreted by the other party due to 3rd party miscommunication or inexperience.
5. Have a plan for the property the day of closing. Ron immediately works on increasing the revenue stream and cash flow day 1 on a newly acquired Jackson Hole commercial property. It is amazing what a fresh coat of paint, re-carpeting and decorating can do to improve revenue and the value of a property in 1 week. Ron prefers to buy properties that need a little amount of reasonable work at a lower price and get it done quickly after closing.
6. Ron immediately puts his property management team on the newly acquired property he buys to promote the new improved rental property on his website jacksonhlole.net. He says it is amazing how you can change a toad into a prince quickly to add value in both revenue and market share value depending on market conditions.

For those looking for commercial real estate in Jackson Hole, it is important to seek out a good Jackson Hole Real Estate Broker for several reasons. The market is very limited and with only a handful of listings it can be a challenge to identify a property. Our Broker, Ron Miller, has been fortunate enough to put together many deals in Jackson Hole for commercial investors. One of the nicer listings that is a turnkey investment for the Jackson Hole Real Estate investor is the Miller Park Lodge in the heart of downtown Jackson Hole. You can view this property and details on our jacksonholerr.com site as well as jacksonhole.net and millerparklodge.net.
There is also a pent up demand in the affordable housing development market in and around Jackson Hole and finding the real estate that allows such zoning can be quite a challenge. As of late, many locals are petitioning the town of Jackson’s elected officials to allow for more zoning to meet this serious housing crisis and the growing demand. There will be a point in the near future that additional zoning requests must be looked at more seriously by the town and county governments.

There is nothing that makes you appreciate living in Jackson Hole more than taking a short weekend trip out of town. I went to Denver this weekend for a concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and it was great, but it makes you appreciate how special living in Jackson Hole really is. I have nothing but high praise for the beautiful and exciting city of Denver, and my gracious hosts. However, by the end of the trip I was ready to come home, and after telling our friends about the area they were ready to come visit as soon as the first snow falls.
So what all happened in the market while I was gone? We had four condos go on the market that range in price from $320,000-$765,000. Two of these condos are located in the Aspens Racquet Club neighborhood 4 miles from Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. We also had a very special property that went on the market in the Pioneer Subdivision in Wilson. This single family home sits on 4.51 acres and has incredible views of the Grand Teton Mountain Range. You can check out all of the details here, 4455 Pioneer Lane.
With everything being said I had an incredible weekend in Denver, but I am excited to be back in Jackson to get back to work and help sell these exciting new properties!
Wow, we now have a new ultra luxury listing in the Jackson Hole Real Estate market that is the most stunning and rare property listed this year. The Wenzel Lane property has it all with large acreage, location, and panoramic West Bank views like no other listing. Listed at a cool $53 million this will take one of the top 1% wealthy folks, that Bernie Sanders would not like, to be the proud owner of this Jackson Hole masterpiece. Donald Trump would be a good candidate for this one we plan to tweet this blog to him immediately.
In all seriousness, there are benefits for the wealthy to own these wonderful properties in Jackson Hole. For those wealthy families looking to cash out of the stock market at a high price and place the money in a fantastic tangible asset that a family can use look no further. When you cash out you can either invest in a large storeroom and buy a pile of gold, silver, other precious metals, and jewels and occasionally look at them or buy the “Crown Jewel” of all Jackson Hole Real Estate and enjoy it more.
Today we would like to bring your attention to a fantastic new Jackson Hole listing that came on the market in Teton Village. The Timber Ridge townhomes are a perfect alternative for those Jackson Hole buyers wanting a luxury property comparable to a home in Teton Village. Our Broker, Ron Miller, has invested in several of these over the years and they have a proven track record of high performance.
Ron comments, “I like these townhomes for our Jackson Hole Real Estate friends and property management clients because they have carports and great ski in ski-out access. The floorplans are terrific with lots of open spaces, and 5 nice bedrooms with 3 baths. Timber Ridge is directly below our popular moosecrrektownhomes.com properties. There is a newer chair lift that requires a short hike up the driveway to get ski in access to the base of the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. There is also a trail meandering through the woods of the Moose Creek complex that leads right to the parking lot for our ski enthusiasts.”
Fourth of July in Jackson Hole is like Christmas and a fabulous birthday party combined as it represents the freedom of this beautiful country we live in. The July 4th holiday feels like a spiritual marker each year on the calendar to remind us all to be thankful, rejoice, spend time with family and friends, and enjoy the historical western setting in Jackson Hole. The fireworks and festivities combined with warmer daytime temperatures and crisp cool evenings enjoyed with friends is simply hard to beat.
We will be there again this year in a nice luxury Jackson Hole rental home we found through Jacksonhole.net
This year our Jackson Hole Reservations agent assisted us in booking a white water rafting adventure and helped us to schedule showings of a couple rental homes and condominiums for sale.
We feel Jackson Hole would be a fabulous place to own a vacation home or condo to use every holiday possible. We like a few properties we saw last year on moosecreektownhomes.com and graniteridgetownhomes.com as the rental stats look great. And, by putting it on the propertymanagementjacksonhole.com website it will help us pay for our Jackson Hole investment property. We are looking forward to creating memories in Jackson Hole for years to come.
