Why You Might Want To Bring Your Business To Wyoming

by Teri McCarthy

Tax Benefits of Doing Business in Wyoming

One more reason to add to your list of why Wyoming is an amazing state to live and do business in: the tax benefits. Wyoming has some of the lowest tax rates of any state in the country. With no income tax for corporations or individuals and low sales, property and employment tax rates, Wyoming comes in first place for a tax climate that favors both businesses and individuals. But it doesn’t stop with low tax rates; Wyoming has other enticing offers for businesses that have prompted many business owners and entrepreneurs to consider relocating.

Buyer’s Agent is Key to Your Jackson Hole Relocation

Buyer’s Agent is Key to Your Jackson Hole Relocation
 
Uncertain economy or not, we Americans remain a highly mobile bunch. In fact, the Census Bureau says that no fewer than 6,700,000 Americans packed up and moved to a new state in the period between 2010 – 2011, the latest year on record.  Official stats are not yet available for 2012, but the relocation numbers are expected to increase as people continue to relocate in search of more stable economic environments, attractive retirement communities, and/or an improved quality of life. 
 
For just about everyone, even thinking about relocating is a daunting proposition.  If you are considering relocating to the Jackson Hole area, or thinking about owning a mountain vacation home, the surest way to keep yourself sane is to connect with an experienced buyer's agent.
 
A buyer's agent can accomplish several momentous things to simplify your Jackson Hole relocation. He or she can take your "wish list" and find the available Teton County properties that suit your needs. With a good working knowledge of what is available, your agent will provide guidance on the price similar properties have recently commanded. Buyer's agents are contractually bound to have your best interests at heart -- which is why having a buyer’s agent is preferable to using the seller's agent or an intermediary. An intermediary (non-agent) owes no fiduciary duty to the buyer and is not allowed to negotiate on behalf of the buyer.
 
As with any other key professional service provider, you should not be willing to settle for the first person you come across. Interview potential agents as your buyer representative by asking the following questions:
 
Are they are willing to sign a buyer’s agency agreement with you to represent you as a buyer’s agent. Not all Jackson brokerages allow their agents to contract as buyer’s agents. 
How long have they been representing buyers in Jackson Hole?
Is the agent an ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative)?
Ask the agent to provide references.
 
Why hire an Accredited Buyer Representative?  When you look for an ABR before you look for a home, you will be served, not sold. Your interests become his/her interests.  And you will be working with someone who has gone the extra mile by completing specialized training in delivering the best in buyer-representation services. Plus, a Realtor who has an ABR Designation also has an established track record, with proven experience in representing the concerns of buyers. 
 
Taking the time up front to find an experienced buyer’s agent who will be an advocate for you and represent your best interest, can wind up saving you not only time but money.  Where your new home is concerned, there is really no need to take chances. A great buyer's agent will help make your Jackson Hole relocation as simple and timely as possible.  As an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), I hope you will include me on your interview list.
