Alaska Real Estate - Our Favorite Anchorage Neighborhoods
Alaska MLS - Our Favorite Eagle River Neighborhoods
Anchorage Real Estate
Anchorage, Alaska's largest city, was established in 1914 as a railroad construction port. Today, Anchorage is home to nearly 300,000 residents. The economy is largely driven by the oil industry. It is home to the world's third busiest airport by cargo traffic. It is also home to Elmendorf Air Force Base, Fort Richardson Military Base and Kulis Air National Guard Base.
The real estate market in Anchorage Alaska does not always follow the national trends due to our locality. Our construction also tends to be quite unique due to the colder climate in which we live.
Eagle River Real EstateAbout 30,000 people live in Eagle River, Alaska. Eagle River is located just north of Anchorage. It is home to the Eagle River Nature Center located 12 miles up Eagle River Road, which sits at an entrance to Chugach State Park. Popular local activities include rafting, hiking, skiing and exploring the true beauty Eagle River has to offer.
Eagle River is a popular area for residents looking to commute to Anchorage for work but still enjoy the convenience of local shops and services. Home pricing is roughly in line with Anchorage real estate market prices.
