    Default The lack of East Central available land.

    For the life of me I can't find any land for sale in the East Central area of Alaska for sale! East of FT Yukon, Circle, around Chalkyitsik, etc. Only reason I can figure is it's all state land and not for sale.

    Can anyone shine an educated answer on why? Or maybe I'm just not finding it!

    Don't have an answer to your question, but one thing you might do is chat up folks in the area you're interested in and see how might be willing to sell. Sometimes a person is ready to sell but doesn't take the initiative to list the property.

    DNR may not have any land for sale because no one has expressed an interest there. You can nominate land sales using this form: http://landsales.alaska.gov/mlw/fact...nominating.pdf Nominations received by March 31 will be considered this year.

    Most of this is state or federal land with some native land there may be some patented mining land. There is land for sale around central .

    Less than 1% of land in Alaska is in private hands. Over 89% is in state or federal hands. The remaining 10% is in Native Alaskan hands and that's a subject for an entire book of discussion. Some Native lands are transferable, and some are not.

    Tanana Chiefs puts land for sale on Craigslist from time to time - may be worth contacting them directly.

    For any land in State hand to be sold it has to go through a disposal program, It also has to be classified as settlement land. You would think a lot is, but in reality most is not. Resource Management and Wildlife Habitat seem to be the majority. When you nominate a area for sale it goes into a "pool". The areas that get the most interest are the ones they look at. If it has great interest and is not settlement, well then they start a Area Plan Amendment, or a site specific area plan if it is not classified at all.

    And they look at places that will bring the most return.

    You can also check out the Mental Health Trust land sales http://mhtrustland.org/index.php/lan...ing-land-sale/ but they are more expensive

    Oh and it is roughly
    65% Fed
    24% state
    10% native
    less than 1% private
