Soldotna Real Estate

Selling your home in Alaska Real Estate: from the first inkling that you will be putting it on the market until you sign off on the paperwork, the process can be seen as a series of dozens and dozens of decisions.

We get to offer a deep reservoir of experience: what has worked (and not worked) before here in Real Estate Kenai, as well as where the latest trends … Continue reading

For Alaska Real Estate investors (BTW, that includes homeowners and soon-to-be homeowners of all stripes), there’s some long wished-for news: the solid reputation of real estate as an investment is back! After years of falling off, the latest Gallup poll on the economy and personal finance finds that Americans are now convinced that their best long term investment is in the housing market. Real estate won out against all other alternatives: bonds, gold, stocks, mutual funds and CDs. For the past few years, gold had been investment #1—but see-sawing gold price movements have whiplashed public sentiment. Just as takes place everywhere in the nation, whenever Alaska Real Estate market improves, so does its reception by potential buyers who view … Continue reading

Soldotna Real Estate Interest Rates Dodge Anticipated Escalation

Soldotna Real Estate

Alaska Real Estate homeowners who had been bracing themselves for sharp rises in mortgage interest rates must now be scratching their heads. As the online Mortgage News Daily put it last week, “…rates have been extraordinarily sideways, and right in line with the lowest levels in 11 months.” Since historical averages are still significantly higher, it’s no wonder that most observers still believe the greater likelihood is for rate increases. But recent Fed happenings show a crack in their avowed determination to let that happen by tapering off purchases of mortgage-backed securities. The hemming and hawing is notable. It’s all pretty much up in the air. In any case, one thing I can guarantee is … Continue reading

Estimates so far indicate that summer 2014 is likely to be a better than usual season for Alaska Real Estate home sales. The past winter threw a wet blanket over all kinds of business activity, creating a perfect scenario for a sales bounce back—and that’s exactly what is beginning to show up in the stats. As Bloomberg News reported last week, sales of homes “climbed in April for the first time in three months…the biggest in six months…” If you will be taking advantage of the uptick by listing your property for this summer’s market, having an open house in Real Estate Kenai is a prime way to attract prospective buyers. With a little focus … Continue reading

New Soldotna Real Estate Home Market Tilt: End of the 3-Bedroom Home?

For decades, the three-bedroom house has been a cornerstone of the American dream. Now, as with the rest of the nation, Alaska’s real estate profile for new single family homes seems to be changing. And last year we may well have reached a turning point in the national new home market: now four bedrooms seems to have become the new norm! Last year, a full 48% of new homes—nearly half—were built with at least four bedrooms. That’s quite a jump when you compare it with just four years earlier: in 2009, the figure was 34%. We asked ourselves why the nation’s preferences would have undergone such a sizable shift. A little research revealed some likely … Continue reading
