Reality is... Real Estate is Pretty Good in Homer Alaska

People call or come in and ask for our foreclosure list… we don’t have one because as you can see from the  stats below from RealtyTrac.com we just don’t have that many!

 

Just to put this in perspective we currently have 510 Homes listed in the entire Kenai Peninsula Borough.  From Clam Gulch to across the Bay we have 215 Homes listed in a the Southern Kenai Peninusla which includes Ninilchik, Homer and Anchor Point. 

 In the 12 months we closed on 801 Homes in the Kenai Peninsula and

245 in the Southern portion of the Kenai Peninsula  

The foreclosure rate is not a huge factor in our market! Good News!

Bright Skies!
