For the past two years national home prices have risen sharply, which might lead to the conclusion that they are overpriced. In fact, if we’re to believe the most recent report by real estate website Trulia, they are still 5% undervalued when measured against long-term fundamentals. So will this summer’s home prices in Alaska Real Estate be broaching unsustainable levels—or will they be reasonable? The Problem of Measuring Only Home Price Increases Real estate price increases by themselves are poor indicators of over- or undervalued real estate. Because of the headlong drop in real estate prices in 2007, throughout most of the country, prices have increased significantly without approaching the previous highs. A well-publicized example … Continue reading

Because real estate agents in the state of Alaska see everything in the market, we have a pretty good idea about why some houses sell (and why others sit on the market for years).

The sunny attitude that encourages entrepreneurs to look at a box of lemons and think ‘lemonade!’ is widely admired, and it does seem to be a viewpoint that successful people cultivate. For anyone who is determined to sell their Alaska Real Estate property—but only at a price the market is not yet willing to pay—well, the turn-lemons-into-lemonade situation is entirely apt. After all, smart investors are buying up and renting properties like yours quite deliberately because they realize that a Kenai Real Estate rental home is not just an asset that can appreciate over time, but one that can also produce income at the same time. Whatever your own reason for renting, when you put … Continue reading

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
