Alaska Real Estate
Known as “The Last Frontier”, life in Alaska is truly an adventure that is rewarding to homebuyers. As the largest state in America by area, yet with just over 700,000 residents, the frontier is wide open for those who choose to buy a home where there the real estate market is as vibrant and diverse as Alaska’s natural wonders.
Of course, it’s the Alaskan landscape that is often the first thing considered when choosing to live in Alaska. Stunning mountainous peaks, lush and unspoiled stretches of vast wilderness, clear night skies and an abundance of wildlife have brought many new residents to Alaska. And while Alaska is truly an outdoor enthusiasts paradise, it has become so much more. Alaska offers residents a broad range of cities, towns and communities that each has their unique culture, attractions and opportunities for homebuyers. Alaska’s five distinct regions include the Southwest, Far North, Interior, South Central and Inside Passage, providing homebuyers with an abundance of remarkable real estate markets to choose from. South Central is the home to over half of Alaska’s total population and includes its largest city, Anchorage, and the popular Mat-Su Valley, home of the historical towns Wasilla and Palmer, making this region an increasingly popular choice for homebuyers.
No matter where you buy a home in Alaska, you will find that as a whole this is state with tight-knit communities and residents who crave adventure, freedom and the good life. A steady Alaskan economy has helped to create a stable housing market along with ample employment opportunities for homebuyers, too. Energy and fishing jobs are a large part of Alaska’s economy, but government jobs, health care and transportation industries are major contributors to the state’s continued success. With the addition of the booming technology industry that developed in part to Alaska’s vast size, a number of high-tech firms are finding this is a state that is an attractive option to do business. In fact, Alaska has even seen over 20 years of continued job growth with expectations of the state’s economy to continue to grow.
Additionally, Alaska offers residents a lower cost of living than many expect, and life in cities throughout the state is more than many major U.S. cities.
