The last few years have seen increases in residential home values at about 10% a year or more in Wasilla and Palmer. Other parts of the country had appreciation as high as 33% per year, but the Mat-Su Borough had a more reasonable rate of increase.
It was generally possible for about 3 years to buy a house in January and make money on it by June. In fact, with some new construction homes, between the time the contract was signed to build the home and the time the home was actually finished, the buyer could immediately sell it and make money. That is because the price was locked in with the builder some months before hand.
