People in general always seem surprised by the price of land here in Wyoming.  I guess they figure with so few people and so much land prices should be lower.  What they don't realize is that the ratio of public land to private is greater out here than anyplace else. Additionally, this area was b...

The beautiful state of Colorado is only 25 miles south of Laramie on Highway 287.  While Colorado is known for its wilderness and majestic mountain beauty, our family likes to head that way for an escape to urban civilization.

Well, now, I  officially don't have to....

One of the reasons I love first time buyers is that I remember ourselves and our first home hunting experience.  Long story short, this is how we thought it worked:  Find the house you want.                                Tell the bank how much you want to borrow.  The bank gives you the loan.  Y...

Most people like to do a bit of their own detective work when buying or selling a home.  With all the internet resources we have at our fingertips, you'd be crazy not to!  One of the most common sources of information people here come across is the Assessed Valuation of a property from the Albany...

Believe it or not, here in Laramie, Wyoming, there is very little relationship between current market value and assessed valuation.  Assessed valuation is the value the county assigns to a property as a basis from which to calculate  property taxes.  Every now and then the county estimate is very...
