Check out our new forum, the Alaska Real Estate Forum!
For several years our members have been asking for a place to buy / sell property in the state of Alaska, but we steered clear of it. There are many places that offer real estate for sale, and we thought it would be too much of a distraction from our central purpose of providing information about the Alaska outdoors. But fishermen and hunters have to live somewhere, and between folks moving here for the first time, people moving Outside, and others who just want to relocate to another area in Alaska, we think this could be a valuable service for our site to offer.
Here's how it works: Contact our office for all new listings: 1 (907) 895-4919. New listings are $25 each, paid up front. When you post your listing, put the LOCATION first, in bold type. This will allow readers to quickly scroll through to the properties to find the areas they are interested in. If the listings get too long, we may add sub-forums to group properties together. Here's a sample format you can use:
WASILLA: FSBO 3br. 2ba. 1500 sq. ft. log home on 3 acres of forested land off Trunk Road. Wood stove, new paint inside, kitchen recently remodeled, new laminate floor in living room. Appliances stay. Well and septic. Two-car garage / shop detached. Price: $XXXXX. Call: 1 (907) XXX-XXXX
IF YOU ARE A REALTOR: We will take up to 3 sponsors for this forum. The cost for sponsorship is $800 / year. In exchange, we will give you five "Sticky" posts that will remain at the top of the listings. You may change these listings as often as you like, but you need to do so through our office 1 (907) 895-4919. Because sponsors come in at different times, the sticky at the top of the list will be the most recently posted. Stickies are visible at the top of the listings in the Alaska Real Estate Forum, so your properties are guaranteed to be seen every time someone goes to the forum. Our forums have a huge amount of dedicated traffic, so your chances of your property being seen here are very high.
You may comment on a listing, as long as the comments relate directly to the property listed. No negative comments about the property or the lister are allowed! If there are "issues" with the property, please do not hash them out in our forums. Take those and any detailed discussions of the property outside the forums. We want to make this work for everyone, so if you have suggestions by all means post them here so we can take a look. This is YOUR community!
