Welcome to Cheyenne, Wyoming

by Vicki Graham, #1 Properties, Vicki@GrahamHouse.com

Cheyenne, Wyoming - A blend of the old and new West, we have a cultural diversity and variety unlike most communities. By mixing tradition with innovation, the community offers something for every taste and every budget.

Cheyenne is located at the north end of the Front Range, enjoying "best of both worlds" atmosphere with the benefits of both Colorado's growth and Wyoming's slower pace.  Clean air, little traffic congestion, relatively low crime, affordable housing, low taxes and cost of living, good schools, recreational and cultural activities, and quality health care make Cheyenne a great community to live in.

Wyoming Tax Advantages include no state or local corporate income tax, no state or local personal income tax, no state or local inventory tax, no state or local sales tax on fuel, power or raw materials used in manufacturing. Wyoming can keep its taxes low because it has great mineral wealth, permanent investments and efficient government.

The state sales and use tax is four percent, with additional local option sales taxes of up to two percent, subject to voter approval. (Laramie County's optional tax currently is one percent). Property taxes are among the lowest of the nation's metropolitan areas, and other taxes, like gasoline, are among the lowest in the country. Wyoming also has a two percent lodging tax.

Should I Buy a Home Now?

by Vicki Graham, #1 Properties, Vicki@GrahamHouse.com

I'm often asked if this is a good time to buy a home. Some clients are concerned that home prices may fall further than they have already. They are assuming that the best course of action is to wait for the bottom in the market and then buy. The problem with this approach is that you don't know where the bottom is until you see it in the rear view mirror, meaning until you've missed it!

Home prices are one factor in determining your cost of ownership, but so are interest rates and financing availability. Even though interest rates have gone up in the last six months, they are still near historic lows. Since your monthly mortgage payment is a combination of paying down your principal and paying the interest owed, if home prices come down a little further but interest rates go up, it could cost you even more to service a mortgage on an identical home!

While a home is a major investment, it is also the center of your personal life. It's important to live in a home that reflects your taste and values, yet is within your financial "comfort zone." To that end, it may be more important to lock in today's relatively low interest rates and low home prices, rather than to hope for a further break in prices in the future.

Please give me a call if I can be of any assistance in determining how much home you can afford in today's market.
