I only have one rental left in Gillette. (One too many.) It's a 3-bedroom townhouse with 2.5 baths, single garage, fireplace, unfinished basement, fenced yard. It's pushing 30 years old but is in "good" condition. It rents for $1050/month. There's one adjoining it with the basement finished and new cabinets throughout that rents for $1200.

When I read Dave's comment about cheaper housing in Gillette I had to wonder. I'd be surprised if it's any cheaper here, but maybe things have changed. I know housing prices have come down here a little since a couple years ago. I'm not really on top of the prices.

I have a brother who moved to Rock Springs about a year & a half ago. They found housing to be very high there. To buy a home was higher than Gillette by quite a bit. I don't know about the rent, but I suppose if like most places, if buying is high, so is rent. As for Casper, my other brother lived there. They had a heck of a time finding a good rental that was a decent price. There just wasn't much to pick from when they moved there about a year or so ago. They ended up finding a "decent" 2br, 2bath condo with a basement & 2 car garage in a very nice neighborhood for about $1300/mo. It was older but was in pretty good shape. It seems that as far as buying goes, you can get more for your money in Casper than in Gillette and Rock Springs. Many people say that housing is high in Gillette, and it is compared to the small towns in Wyoming, but I don't think it's a whole lot of difference from most larger towns. When we moved here from Billings housing in Gillette was just a tiny bit higher than Billings was. Hope this helps some!
