In comparing different areas and neighborhoods in the greater Jackson area, the first thing to understand is that there are no “good areas” and “bad areas”. There is virtually no crime or traffic anywhere, and homes are relatively expensive wherever you look, so the real decision is finding an area with the characteristics that are right for the individual buyer. This having been said, the following are some general observations which could be helpful in thinking through an investment decision. The general order is starting north of town, proceeding south into town and then west towards Wilson, and ending on the Village Road and Teton Village. The criterion for inclusion is anywhere where you could comfortably drive into town for dinner and back.
