City and Mountain Views, Immaculate Condition! 11140 Kasilof Boulevard, Anchorage, AK

I have a great home listed off of Upper O'malley near the Prospects trail head that is move in ready!  I've toured many homes on the hillside and it can be difficult to find a home on hillside that truly has city views, is easily accessible, and in great condition.  This home has underwent a major remodel in the past few years when the current owners remodeled a garage/workshop into a family room perfect for anyone wanting a great place for the family to watch movies, for homework to get finished at the custom built desk, or to invite friends and family over on the back deck to take in the views of the Anchorage cityscape.

Buying a Forelcosure: What to do when the REO company refuses to pay a closing cost

In the past year, I've closed on three foreclosures and all sellers were willing to contribute some or all closing costs.  I've learned over the years to be very particular in how you word that additional term in your purchase and sales agreement.

Thinking of Cancelling Your Listing with Your Realtor? Consider this....

Cancellations are rampant in our Anchorage and Eagle River market.  Since January 1st, we've had 574 cancellations (and 236 listings that expired) compared to 1544 closings.  Sellers cancel or let their listings expire for all sorts of reasons but a lot of time it's because they've decided to hire a different Realtor.  Many seller expect that the Realtor they hired has a pool of their own buyers just waiting to buy their listings and this is very uncommon that the listing Realtor also finds the buyer.  So before you become a disgruntled seller thinking of cancelling your listing, see if there is a possible reason your home has not sold.
