Wausau, WIA GOOD WORKING CLASS TOWN!
I LIVED IN WAUSAU WI OVER 23 YEARS AGO. I RELOCATED TO WYOMING IN 1990 FOR GOVERMENT POSITION. NOW RETIRED FROM FEDERAL SERVICE, I WILL BE MOVING BACK TO THE UPPER MIDWEST THIS SUMMER TO IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN IN THE UPPER PENNISULA.. MY EXPERIENCE LIVING IN WAUSAU. IT IS A NICE UPPER MIDWEST COMMUNITY. IS SOMEWHAT STOIC, NOT ALL JOVAL. BUT MOSTLY, THE PEOPLE THERE ARE VERY NICE AND FRIENDLY. WAUSAU UNFORTUNATELY, HAS LOST SOME OF ITS MANUFACTURING BASE SUCH AS JI CASE AND A PAPER MILL. WISCONSIN ALONG WITH OTHER MIDWEST STATES HAVE LOST MANY OF THEIR MANUFACTURING JOBS TO OVERSEAS COMPANIES OR TO OTHER STATES THAT HAVE LOWER TAXES. I REMEMBER WINTERS IN NORTHERN WISCONSIN IN THE 1980S. THE WINTERS THEN WERE MUCH COLDER AND MORE SNOW. 25 BELOW WAS NOT UNCOMMON WITH FROZEN LAKES.. NOTHING COMPARES TO THE BEAUTY OF THE NORTH WOODS IN NORTHERN WISCONSIN. LOTS OF LAKES AND TREES. IT IS TRULY GOD'S COUNTRY. I AM HAPPY I AM COMING BACK TO LIVING IN THE MIDWEST.. THE WEST IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY HOTTER, DRYER AND WITH MORE FREQUENT FOREST FIRES. THE NORTH WOODS WILL BE A WELCOME CHANGE.. GO GREEN BAY PACKERS!!!!!!
Cheyenne, WYHOME PRICES
HELLO EVERYONE. CHEYENNE IS NOT A BAD TOWN. SLOWER PACE OF LIFE, RELATIVELY LOWER TAXES,SOMEWHAT FRIENDLIER THAN MANY LARGE CITIES.. I LIVED IN CHEYENNE FOR MANY YEARS AND MOVED TO SHERIDAN 11 YEARS AGO. THE BIGGEST ISSUE FACING MANY PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY YOUNG FOLK, IS THE HIGH COST OF REALESTATE IN CHEYENNE. THE AVERAGE HOME THERE COSTS 176,000. I CANT SEE THE HOW THE LOCAL JOB MARKET CAN SUPPORT SUCH HIGH REALESTATE PRICES. YES. CHEYENNE HAS THE AIRFORCE BASE AND MANY OTHER GOVERNMENT INSTITUTIONS. BUT NOT EVERYONE HAS A HIGH PAYING FEDREAL JOB. HOUSING UNFORTUNATELY, HAS BECOME PRICEY THROUGHOUT MOST WESTERN STATES.THE SITUATION IN NORTHERN COLORADO IS FAR WORSE AND MORE EXPENSIVE.. MOST WESTERN TOWNS THAT ARE CLOSE TO MOUNTAIN VISTAS HAVE BECOME UNAFORDABLE TO LIVE.. TWENTY YEARS AGO A COMMON MAN COULD BUY A NICE MODEST 2 BEDROOM ONE BATH HOUSE FOR 50 TO 60 THOUSAND. NOT ANYMORE. THESE PRICES CONTINUE TO INCREASE DUE TO THE INFLUX OF OUT OF STATERS LOOKING TO RELOCATE AWAY FROM HIGH TAXES, BIG CITIES,BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE FOR FAMILIES, CRIME ETC.. GREED NOW RULES WESTERN TOWNS.. BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO MAKE A MOVE WAY OUT WEST, MAKE SURE YOU ARE READY TO DISH OUT HIGH DOLLAR RENT AND REALESTATE COSTS. OTHER THAN THAT LIFE IS PRETTY GOOD!!!
Cheyenne, WYhome prices outa site in cheyenne
20 TO 25 YEARS AGO VERY FEW PEOPLE WANTED TO COME AND LIVE IN WYOMING. BUT FOR THE WYOMING DIEHARDS, LIFE WAS GOOD. CHEYENNE HAD AFFORDABLE HOUSES, CHEAP RENT AND LOW TAXES. ALL THAT HAS CHANGED NOW! WYOMING'S BEEN DISCOVERD. IF YOU DID NOT BUY A NICE HOME FOR A GOOD PRICE 20 YEARS AGO, THEN YOU ARE SCREWED. HOME PRICES HAVE GONE SPIRAL HERE. CALIFORNIANS, AMONGST OLDER RETIRED PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE MEANS AND THE INCOME ARE COMING TO WYOMING. AS FOR THE YOUNG WORKING CLASS, FORGET ABOUT OWNING A DECENT NICE HOME IN WYOMING. THE AVERAGE IS CLOSE TO 200K .. GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE WANABES WYOMING FOLKS WHO THINK WYOMING IS PARADISE. IT AINT.. THE BANKERS AND GREEDY LANDOWNERS HAVE GO THEIR PAWS DUG IN NOW. NO MORE CHEAP WYOMING.. SAD FOR THE LOWLY WORKING STIFF. CANT LIVE OUT HERE ANYMORE!!!
Sheridan, WYhigh cost of housing
If you planning on moving to Sheridan, may i suggest to all who want to come here to investigate Sheridan's high price of housing. Sheridan is a decent clean town to live. but the cost of housing keeps people that work for a modest income from moving here. Many people who cannot afford to stay leave. Many of the wealthy do reside in the powderhorn residential area where million dollar homes abound. Sheridan is fast becoming the new latest version of a Jackson Hole environment. Montana, Wyoming, Colorado now have the dubious distinction of having the most expensive housing markets in the country.. so happy trails. and remember one thought. you cant live on the scenery. you can starve here in a beautiful mountain setting just like any other place in the country
Sheridan, WYnot a good town for a working class family
Sheridan is a nice town. Plenty of outdoor activities such as hiking ,fishing and wild game hunting. But unfortunately, an average working family cannot afford to live here. The wealthy own the banks, the land and the real estate! And the ones who cannot afford to live here either pay high rent or move out of town! And many do leave! If your not part of the club, then your out the door, so If you thinking of moving here, make your decision wisely. Make sure you have a good job with a good income.Home prices in sheridan are nothing short of ridiculous!! It's all about status and money here!!! Sheridan is an attractive town for upper middle class families. Crime is low,which makes the town suitable for young families who want to raise their children in a safe environment!
SHERIDAN LOOKS INVITING BUT LIVING IN THIS TOWN HAS BEEN A TOUGH EXPERIENCE.THE PLUS HERE IS THE BEAUTY OF THE BIG HORN MOUNTAINS WITH ALL OF THE OUTDOOR OPPORTUNITIES ABOUND HERE. THE NEGATIVES: THE HOMES ARE OVERPRICED. SOME OF THE PEOPLE CAN BE FFIENDLY BUT THE LOCALS( NATIVES) WHO RESIDE HERE ARE SOMEWHAT STANDOFFISH, CLICKY AND NO SO FRIENDLY THE WORD OUTSIDERS IS A COMMON PHRASE SPOKEN HERE!!.MANY PEOPLE COME AND WANT TO LIVE IN SHERIDAN FOR A WHILE BUT THEY FIND OUT QUICKLY YOU CAN'T FIND SUITABLE WORK THAT PAYS A DECENT WAGE TO OFFSET THE RIDICULOUS COST OF HOUSING. IF YOUR NOT FROM SHERIDAN, YOU WILL NEVER FEEL LIKE THIS IS HOME IN MY OPINION. THE CULTURE FAVORS THE TOURISTS. THE SUPERWEALTHY CONTROL EVERY ASPECT OF SHERIDAN.ITS ALL ABOUT CONTROL. THIS IS THE MOST FACIST COMMUNITY I HAVE EVER LIVED AND BY THE WAY. THE TOWN HAS SPENT MONEY INSTALLING CAMERAS EVERYWHERE IN THE DOWNTOWN AREA. YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR BEING WATCHED EVERYWHERE YOU GO!! AFTER SPENDING 9 PLUS YEARS WORKING AT THE VETERANS HOSPITAL, I AM FINALLY RETIRING FROM FEDERAL SERVICE.I AM RELOCATING TO ALPENA, MICHIGAN. EXCEPT FOR A FEW VERY WONDERFUL PEOPLE I HAVE MET HERE I WILL NEVER MISS THIS TOWN.
