Homes & Residential Living
The market in Laramie is as diverse as the city itself. Friendly and experienced realtors abound, many of them offer relocation services and assistance. Properties run the gamut in style and price, from low-maintenance manufactured housing, condominiums and townhomes to new custom homes in planned subdivisions in a variety of desirable locations.
The median-priced home in Laramie markets for around $179,852, slightly lower than the national average of $208,000. That, coupled with the great neighborhoods, numerous city parks speckled through different residential areas and nearby schools, make Laramie an ideal place for families.
Rental housing abounds as well, with more than 1,000 new rental units built in the last two years. Rental costs for single family housing such as a three bedroom house have followed national trends and increased to a range of $800- $1200, and approx. average of $1,000 because of the increase in utility prices.
With all the attractions and amenities of a large city, Laramie is still a small town providing the quality of life that so many people desire when choosing a place to call home. Among the up and coming “new construction” options will be the development of the Turner Tract and the approx. 75 custom homes to adorn the Jacoby Golf Course extension.
Whether you decide to buy a home in an older established part of town, such as close to the University, or one of the newer residential areas, or simply rent a property until you decide to buy, you will be glad you chose Laramie.
