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
