After 28 years I have convinced my wife, so we are in the planning stages now. I have a woodmizer LT 40 hydraulic being delivered in Anchorage next week. We are flying up late June to actually walk the properties we have been viewing online. We really like the Palmer area but real estate agents, even in Palmer are leading us towards the Wasilla area. One actually told me the people in Palmer and Sutton don't tolerate outsiders so its best to stay away. Really... We picked Palmer because it does not seem as commercialized as Wasilla and it has our denomination church. My entire family is moving up so we were buying around 40 acres so I can build 5-6 log cabins.
I am just wondering if the people of Palmer really don't won't outsiders or is it just that the real estate agents can sell more land in the Wasilla and Knick areas.
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
