Wasilla and Palmer Real Estate Deals November 16th, 2009

Categories: Deals of the Week

The deals of the week went out to all the subscribers on Friday. If you want to be on this list send me an email, (click on “contact me” to the right), and ask for deals of the week.

This week I focused only on Palmer and Wasilla because thats were most of the buyers are focusing.

I was pretty relentless on real obvious deals as you can see from the paring down of the new listings and the price reductions. Some of these are short sales—FAIR WARNING ON SHORT SALES—they can be frustrating.

The deals of the week included: 3 of 25 new listings, 4 of 50 price reductions, all 16 Foreclosures, and all 8 relos.

If you are looking for a fair deal and a good house, there are quite a few brand new houses coming on the market that qualify for the $7,500 energy rebate. Many of them are priced VERY competitively to start with and with the rebate and the great savings you have on the new energy efficient homes they are something you should consider.

I know of several new homes that aren’t on the market yet that will be great deals for someone. Let me know if you are interested in them. I’ll get you the info.

Deals Of The Week March 28th, 2009

Categories: Deals of the Week, Wasilla Real Estate News

I am going to revive the deals of the week…again. Over the last year or so I have had a struggle between wanting to put up deals of the week for anyone to see and the MLS rules which apparently do not allow that.

So you will need to sign up for them for the weekly list by just completing the contact form at the bottom and asking to be on the deals of the week list in your message.

This week, the deals of the week include:

  • * An unfinished home on more than 5 acres for $85,000.
  • * A new, upgraded 3 bedroom ranch for $223,000
  • * A 2000+ sq ft home on more than 2 acres with a barn for $279,000
  • * A 2900 sq ft home with 2 car garage and bluff view by the college for $250,000
  • * A 4 bedroom 2.5 bath home with 2 car garage for $175,000
  • * A beautiful 1400 sq ft ranch in the core area for $170,000
  • * A 2 year old 2000 sq ft 4 bedroom ranch with 2 car garage for $255,000
  • And quite a few more. That’s only about 1/2 of them. Just sign up here and ask to be on the deals of the week in the message:

    How To Get Thirteen Offers In Five Days July 29th, 2008

    Categories: Deals of the Week, Market Trends

    BannerThis house came on the market just last week for $148,500.  This is a house that Hall Quality Homes built in 1998.  He still builds this model for about $230,000 or so.

    This is a VA foreclosure that for some reason was listed at a lower than expected price.  The listing price is not determined by the listing licensee, who was Elizabeth Macmullen, but by the asset manager for VA.

    If you were on my motivated seller list you would have been notified of this fantastic deal.  …by the way…just drop a line if you want to be on it….

    There was a lot of interest in this house as you might imagine.  In fact, by yesterday there were thirteen offers on the property and of course the seller accepted the highest bid. 

    I’m not sure what the final price was but it was likely at least $20,000 higher than the asking price.

    So there are a couple lessons to be learned here.

    • First…If you want to sell your house right away just underprice the market by about $50K
    • Second…There are a lot of ready and willing buyers out there right now, they are just waiting for a good house at a good price.

    If you are looking for a good deal…I have at least two houses in mind right now that will likely sell before a week is up.  Give me a call on my cell 907 232–7900

    Mat-Su Real Estate Deals April 4th, 2008

    Categories: Deals of the Week

    I did the deals of the week a little differently this week.  I talked to a bunch of realtors and asked which property are they surprised isn’t sold already.

    Here they are:

    These are all very good houses for the price.  Obviously they don’t fit every buyer, but they are priced right for the property.  Check them out.  If you are interested but still think the price is high, these are serious sellers, make an offer.

    Call me at 907 232–7900 to look at any of them.
