“We Can't Sell During the Winter”

I talk to people everyday about buying and selling homes. This is one of the most common objections and myths I hear, from about August until March. Alaska is a very seasonal place and things typically slow down during the winter. Many people think the same is true for the real estate market. But is it really?

Currently, it is mid September as I write this, and already people are talking about shorter days and colder nights. I hear of people taking their homes off the market because their friends, neighbors and self-proclaimed experts are telling them to do so. But, here are some facts:

  • Active Homes on the Market= 952

  • Homes with Accepted Offers = 451

  • Closed Homes Since Sept.1 = 52

  • Closed Homes Since Aug. 1 = 371

Travel

When I travel, I do so for four main reasons - all of which help build a bigger life for me and my wife, Alecia.

 

1. Travel to Change your Environment

I’m guilty of getting stuck in a routine -- day in and day out -- without taking a “bird’s-eye” view of my life. Not that routines are bad, they actually help control your life and make it more efficient. However, by breaking the routine and taking a minute to step back can show you numerous ways to improve.

 

2. Travel to Network

Moving to Alaska

You have decided to, or researching about, move to Alaska! Many people are drawn the vast wilderness, Aurora Borealis (A.K.A Northern Lights), fishing and hunting, wildlife, and raw beauty that is Alaska. Whether it's to escape the city life, business or recreation, Alaska has many things to offer, but it is definitely a big task to move to a state that is 2000 miles from its closest neighboring state. There are several things that set Alaska apart from Hawaii and the Lower 48, that's what we call the continental United States. Below we will cover some of the big things to be aware of.

 

Dark vs. Light

Whenever I travel out of state, people always ask me one of two questions: “How do you deal with the darkness all the time?” And, “Is it

Precision Home Group Gives Back to Alaska

The Belief that Business help Create Community

 

Precision Home Group has teamed up with three local businesses to provide a solution to our cities growing at-risk communities. Precision Home Group -- with the help of Alaska Management Group, Hair Science Barber Shop, and Wealth DynamX -- came together to form the non profit, Operation Reborn.

 

In fall of 2017, the four business owners were talking about the current situation in Anchorage --  where the city was recently labeled as one of the “most dangerous cities” America, with the highest crime rate per capita alongside the highest rates of homeless.
