Allowing More in 2024
The Town of Jackson, WY, has elected to allow Short-Term Rental capabilities for properties outside of the pre-existing Lodging Overlay starting January 1, 2024. The expansion of Short-Term Rental properties comes as a response to persistent demands within the community to create a more straightforward rulebook for property owners.
The new legislation is intended to help neighborhoods preserve their character while helping local owners maximize their properties’ value. Could this become a major selling point for second-home owners?
There are no significant changes for properties inside the Lodging Overlay. The notable changes now in place for residences outside of the lodging overlay include:
- Allows 3 Separate Short-Term Rentals per Year
- Maximum of 60 Short-Term Rental days per Year
If you are considering making your property a Short-Term Rental, start with the following items:
- Procure written consent from your HOA (if applicable)
- Notify neighbors within 200 feet of the rental
- Apply for a Basic Use Permit for Short-Term Rentals
- Review the Submittal Requirements here
- Apply for a Business License
Additional Rental Guidelines can be found on the Town of Jackson Website.
For information about the impact this will have on your property or one you are considering, don’t hesitate to get in touch with a Keller Williams agent.
