How do I know if I qualify for an Employment-based home?

Unlike Affordable and Attainable homes, Employment-based homes are  not classified into categories. This is because there is no limit to the amount of income or assets that your household can have. However, you  must be employed in Teton County at least an average of 30 hours per week. You also must earn 75% of your income from a local business. Once you purchase an Employment-based home, you will need to continue to earn at least 75% of the household's income from a local business.


You are not allowed to own any residential real estate within 150 miles of Jackson, and you may not purchase any residential real estate within 150 miles of Jackson any time you own an Employment-based home. One person in the household must be a U.S. Citizen or a Lawful Permanent Resident at least 18 years of age. To be eligible to purchase, one adult wage earner in the household must have at least two consecutive years working in Teton County immediately prior to applying.
