We aim to over deliver in all of our transactions! We have a can-do attitude towards listing homes, and work to make sure we get the most for our clients in every situation. Sometimes, this means we have to get creative and be more hands on. 

We recently sold a single family, ranch-style home on the East side of Anchorage. The large family that was living there had outgrown the house, and we successfully helped them find and close on a larger home that better suited their needs.

When I say the house was too small for them, I mean it was WAY too small. They had a large family of girls living in a small three bedroom, one bathroom house. I grew up with four sisters, so I knew exactly what the father of this…

Understanding Key Documents in Your HOA - Alaska Management Group

Written by Cliff Goughnour

The governing documents for your association contain the rules, regulations, and all other contractual terms that you and the other members are bound by. If you purchase property that is part of an association, your membership is automatic upon purchase. 

For this reason, Alaska State law requires that a Resale Certificate be provided to a prospective buyer prior to closing. In this way, a new owner is aware of what they are agreeing to, and can make a clear decision on whether the association's standards and restrictions meet their own. 

The only problem with this scenario, is that most prospective buyers don’t take the time to fully read these…

As many of you may have heard, the current market is going crazy! Homes are being sold for more than their asking price, at faster rates, and at higher volumes than ever before.

If you’re a buyer, the likelihood of you competing with other offers is much higher than previous years. However, sellers are getting multiple offers, demanding a premium, and not offering many of the traditional concessions that have been seen in the past. With how hot the market has been, we have even seen buyers willing to bring cash to the table above what the appraised value is.

The graph below indicates that this time last year, sellers were only getting about 97% of their list price. Today, most sellers are taking their full…

Before starting Precision Home Group in 2017, I spent quite a few years in wildland firefighting. Most of that time was with Pioneer Peak Hotshots based in Palmer, Alaska. Pioneer Peak is a 20 person wildland firefighting crew. We fought wildfires all over Alaska, Canada, and the lower 48. This job took me to many of the interior villages of Alaska, the Northern Territories of Canada, most of the western states, and even some states on the east coast!

It was one of the most rewarding jobs, as we got to protect villages, small towns, and even some larger metropolitan cities. I spent more days throughout the year in the woods than I did at home -- averaging 16 hour shifts with about 2 to 4 days off a month. It was tough, as…

I have always had huge goals -- goals so big that people would laugh when they heard them. I just smile, put my head down, put the work in, and keep building and expanding.

My vision for Precision is an international brand with franchises all over the US and around the world. We will build off of cutting edge technology, agent focused training, a culture that demands excellence and the highest levels of professionalism, and a focus on making sure our clients win!

I started in real estate at Keller Williams for a brief period, then moved to RE/MAX before launching Precision Real Estate. Working for those two totally different brokerages allowed me to see how they were built out, how they scaled, how they seeked to dominate their niche of the…

This has been an incredible year for Precision Home Group!! 

As you may know, Precision Home Group launched its own brokerage late last year, right before building out the newest office. This means we are an independent, locally owned, Anchorage based real estate brokerage!

By launching the new brokerage, my business partner and I merged Alaska Management Group (AMG), formerly known as Bonanza Realty, and our company Precision Home Group. 

AMG manages about 2,500 homes and condos through their home owners association (HOA) and condo owners association (COA) management company, and is still expanding! Our new brokerage that owns both of these companies is called Precision Real Estate.

Refer to the diagram below for a breakdown of the…
