Soldotna Real Estate Trends

It’s time for this Soldotna real estate observer to tackle the New Year’s roundup of the Year in Real Estate (along with the traditional disclaimer that, since the actual statistics won’t be tallied until 2014, this has to be a lot more sizzle than steak!) But this is one time in the year when we Soldotna residents get to take pause to relax, perhaps put a bottle of bubbly in the fridge for later on, and take a sweeping view of the general direction of things across the land. If you’ve been reading here throughout the year, you already know that 2013 Soldotna real estate activity might easily justify chilling a superior vintage champagne: it’s … Continue reading

Is Buying a Kenai Real Estate Condo Right for You

Existing home sales rose nationally throughout 2013 – and included in those numbers were a good many condominiums. If 2014 will find you investigating the market for a new home, it may be time to give condo living a serious thought.  Buying a condo in Kenai Real Estate can provide many of the benefits of home ownership minus much of the worry that goes with keeping your property. Of course, whether buying a condo is the right housing solution depends on the buyer as well as the particular condo itself – but there are some generalities usually hold true. Most condominiums include a variety of amenities for the owners. There may be an on-site fitness … Continue reading

Soldotna’s Keller Williams Realty will be on “Living Alaska” on HGTV!

Soldotna’s Keller Williams Realty

Tune in to HGTV on January 1st at 7 pm to see the very first episode of” Living Alaska” with Chris Druesedow and our clients, Amy VanDeGrift and Mike VanDeGrift! HGTV picked us as their favorite episode to air first! Michael and Amy Van De Grift and their 4 children (ranging in age from 2 to 17) are moving from Oahu, Hawaii, to Soldotna, Alaska. Despite its tropical allure, Hawaii was not the perfect fit for the Van De Grits: their neighbors were too close, and there wasn’t a yard for their beloved dog, D.O.G., in Hawaii. So this family of 6 is chomping at the bit to buy their forever “true paradise” Alaskan home. … Continue reading

Soldotna Real Estate Holiday Season Makes a December to Remember

by December 23, 2013
Soldotna Real Estate Holiday Season

This year, the first early signs of Soldotna Real Estate holiday season didn’t seem to arrive too early. maybe because Christmas rushed in so soon after Thanksgiving (which somehow also landed smack dab at the start of Hanukkah). Still, by now the familiar holiday music has been being played long enough that it’s hard to believe there is a man, woman or child left who hasn’t had at least one moment when some familiar chord didn’t summon up a sudden flood of memories. Whether those memories were of a family gathering just last year, or of one from the distant past, the holiday season means something unique and special to all of us. However your … Continue reading
