Thinking of a change of scenery? Choosing a new location for your next home can be very exciting, but it’s also important to make sure you’re choosing the right location for your lifestyle, your needs, and your future goals or plans. Before you buy a home in Sheridan, for example, you want to make sure the Old West lifestyle is right for you.
If This Is You, It’s Time to Buy a Home in Sheridan!
Not sure if Sheridan, WY is the right fit for you? Here are four signs that you’ll fit right in—and might even want to buy a home here.
You love the great outdoors
Sheridan is all about outdoor living. If you love hunting, fishing, biking, boating, hiking, camping, backpacking, horseback riding, ranching, farming, or simply breathing in the fresh air of the great outdoors, then you’re sure to love Sheridan. Our varied landscape ranges from rolling plains to dense forest, from gently sloping foothills to steep mountain peaks.
The Bighorn National Forest, which sits on Sheridan’s western edge, spans over 189,000 acres, offering thousands of miles of trails, 30 campgrounds, three scenic byways, multiple reservoirs, and more.
You love open spaces & crave room to roam
If you want to get away from it all, to wake up to nothing but the sound of birdsong or wind in the trees, to see nothing but plains and mountains, to smell nothing but fresh country air, then Sheridan is just the place for you. There is so much undeveloped, open land around the Sheridan area, you can easily leave the cares of the world behind.
If you want to own your own working ranch or farmland, if you want to raise horses or cattle, if you want to build your own house, or if you just want to forget you have neighbors, then Sheridan has more than enough to offer.
You love charming small towns
The land around Sheridan might be open and undeveloped, but the town of Sheridan is quite lively. This cozy little community is surprisingly filled with unique finds and one-of-a-kind gems. Explore the Sheridan County Museum. Catch a show at the WYO Theatre. Or simply spend the afternoon strolling around the shops and restaurants of Downtown Sheridan.
You want to live affordably
All else aside, one of the best aspects of living in Sheridan is the affordability. Not only does Wyoming have a lower median home value than most of the nation, but additionally, there are no taxes on the purchase or sale of a home.
What’s more, there is no personal or corporate tax, no out-of-state retirement income tax, no excise taxes, no inheritance or estate taxes, and no intangible taxes on things like stocks and bonds. Plus, property taxes in Wyoming are the 9th lowest in the country!
