As the local rental market grows, the JH Housing Trust launches Rental Bulletin

(Jackson, Wyo.) – For the second time in Jackson’s history, the third quarter of 2015 closed without a single family home listed for sale for less than $500,000.

With entry level ownership housing in short supply, the rental market has become a more substantial part of the solution. In support of those searching for rental housing, the Housing Trust has developed a community rental bulletin: a free, secure service to connect landlords with renters.

The Rental Bulletin is designed to be user-friendly, allowing potential renters and landlords to communicate via email. Posting and viewing the rental bulletin is free on the Housing Trust website, and each listing includes approximate location, pricing, pet restrictions and lease requirements. All of the free market rentals on the site are listed by third party landlords.

“We are well aware that housing can be difficult in Jackson Hole. In addition to our long game of increasing supply, we decided it was time to create a better system for people in search of rental housing right now,” says Anne Cresswell, executive director of the Jackson Hole Community Housing Trust. “It turns out the rental bulletin simplifies the life of a landlord as well.”
