This particular piece of property is worth 70 as appraised but the house, I doubt is worth the over 200.000 they are asking.

Hi Ms. Brusnahan,

The property you have selected is not in a "village'. It is in a smaller area outside of Palmer, AK called "The Butte". It is about 45 minutes from the outskirts of Anchorage, and about 10 minutes from Palmer. But, since you ask about villages, you need to understand that when Alaskans refer to "villages", we generally mean, "not accessible by land transport".

Truthfully, owning property in our smaller "remote" communities is generally problematic. I lived in Barrow, AK for 9+ years and most of the property was owned by folks who had lived there for generations, or by the local Native Corporation and Government.

The reason for this is simple. There is not much private land in the smaller communities. They are generally surrounded by publicly owned lands (either Local, State or Federal government), or lands jointly owned by the shareholders of the local Native Corporations, which were formed in the late 1970's. Thus, there is generally not much more land available for private development, or ownership, outside of the community.

The above is primarily only true for communities that cannot be reached via land transport. There are quite often properties available in the communities that can be reached by road. Including "The Butte".

I've provided you with a link to my definition of "remote" that works for Alaska. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions or concerns you may have about Alaska and living here. Best wishes and good luck in your studies, we'll look forward to having you join us in the future.

According to the listing information (which has expired) it is exactly 1 acre. I find that rather hard to believe, it's hard to get the exact square footage when building in a subdivision. So, I believe it is REALLY close to one acre.
