Thread: HOPE, ALASKA LAND SALE by Kenai Borough......rare opportunity.

  1. #1

    Default HOPE, ALASKA LAND SALE by Kenai Borough......rare opportunity.

    There is almost never any property for sale in Hope, Alaska. The Kenai Borough is offering 22 tracks. Did I mention subsistence caribou, subsistence moose, subsistence fishing on the Russian River, dipping out reds at the falls. Stop complaining and grab the brass ring. http://www.borough.kenai.ak.us/LandManagement/Hope.htm

    Any word on when the Arm Crossing is going in? Sorta looking for a short term investment.

    Maybe a place to retire. They are being offered at about half the price of what we have been selling land for in Hope.

    I'll check with our congressional delegation and get back at you RES. But then again... the last crossing didn't quite make it either.
    If a dipnetter dips a fish and there is no one around to see/hear it, Did he really dip?

    Youch! $75,000 is the appraised value for some of the lots. I'm a cheap bugger and that seems a little steep to me.

    Well those are two acre lots. We just sold one acre for $70,000.00 cash. Also that is the offered price, BID must be 70% of the offered price. Comes out to about $25,000.00 per acre. Land in the area has sold for up to $240,000.00 per acre.

    Cool thing of you to post! I will take a look. I bet it will bid up pretty high though. I have not looked yet, it is over the counter or actually sealed bid?

    Sealed bid. The minimum bid is 70% of the offered price. So a two acre tract offered at $70,000.-- the minimum bid would be $49,000.-- for two acres. Low, Low, Low down pmt. and insanely low interest over 20 years.

    They are mostly birch trees, all gravel, underground electric, underground phone, very wide streets. I am going to try to buy one. And build a small cabin on it and resell it. I figure to double my money in two years.
