The real estate activity for the valley continues to increase as we go into spring. The Home show and Spring Showcase of Homes for the Mat-Su Homebuilders was well attended. We had two homes in the show that were built by Pacific North Construction. We had about 300 people a day visit the home on Finger Lake, many people said it was the nicest home they had ever seen in the Valley, Take a look at a few photos here. Or just take a look at the trim on the 12 foot ceilings of the living room below and you can see why.

1500 Landmark

Pacific North’s other home at 3551 Aoki also saw steady traffic.

Also, during he weekend we received an offer on a $359,000 house and on two separate lots. It does appear that people are taking action on the many incentives to purchase in place right now.

I thought I would compare this week to the same week in 2008. The first week of April of 2008 is below. It looks similar to the graph above.
