How to Search for Anchorage Land for Sale in 12 Steps
As we said, there's plenty of land for sale in Anchorage, and more often than not it's reasonably priced. The obvious issue is that you can't live on raw land, so there are a number of improvements you will have to make. We can help you find your land - after that, your dream home is up to you! Need help navigating the market and locating Anchorage land for sale? Here are a few tips for you:
#1 See the big picture. Start off knowing what you need the land for. Are you building a home or commercial space? Will you be housing livestock or farming? Are you developing it at all, or just making an investment? The clearer your vision, the more quickly you'll be able to find the perfect property.
#2 Bring cash to the table. If you are buying land and planning to build, many lenders require 20 percent down or more.
#3 Location, location, location. This is where one of our qualified real estate professionals come in. You can contact us to help you find Anchorage land for sale, or you can search our website, which allows you to view every property in the Alaska Multiple Listing Service. This means you can see exactly what our agents see!
#4 Keep track of your favorites. If you are using our website, you can save your favorite properties at a glance and look at them in fuller detail later. Want to visit them in person? Contact us for a guided tour tailored to the properties you'd like to see!
#5 Ask questions. Have a list of questions ready to give our real estate agents. When we contact the agent listing the property, we'll be sure to get your questions answered.
Some important questions that we ask include:
- Does the property have a water source?
- Is the land paid off?
- Is it owner or bank financed?
- Are there any structures on the property?
- Are the structures in compliance with state and city laws and regulations?
- Can the vacant land support a septic system that can be placed far away without contaminating the water source?
- What is the soil type?
#6 Shop around. The worst thing you could do is look at only a few properties and make a quick decision - let us recommend multiple properties for you to view. While we are viewing properties you should take photos, explore the property limits, check any creeks and wells, go inside structures and view the neighboring property as well. One of the most important questions to ask is, how would I access this property? Would you have to drive through a neighbor's land, or vice versa? Are there any easements neighbors will need to use on your property?
#7 Spend the night. Many buyers view properties in the daytime only. If you are making an investment as big as this, it's important that you get an idea of the land and location at night. Get ready to camp out!
#8 Introduce yourself. If you are still in love with the property after seeing it in person, visit your potential neighbors and ask them questions. Neighbors, unlike sellers, are not emotionally invested in the property and thus can give you a much-needed second opinion.
#9 Do some digging. As your real estate agents we will do our due diligence on your property, including securing past appraisals, researching home values, etc.
However, feel free to do as much research as you need to in order to feel comfortable. Together we will thoroughly research the Anchorage land you are interested in. This could include:
- If the property has a well, finding out when it was dug and how deep it is.
- Examining plats and building codes to see if the parcels around you are marked for future development.
- Finding out if the land was used for farming, and if so, finding out if there were any pesticides used.
- Examining mains to see if they are close or far away (this will let you know if getting utilities will be easy and affordable, or difficult and expensive).
#10 Leave the negotiating to the experts. As licensed Alaska real estate professionals, we are trained to negotiate the best deal on your behalf. We will make an offer for you at the lowest respectful amount, giving you the advantage if the seller counters. Since we are not emotionally attached to the deal, we can advise you on when to walk away and when to keep bargaining. The end goal is always to pay the minimum so you can have cash left over to develop the land.
#11 Get everything checked. Before closing, make sure everything gets inspected. This includes title checks, well & septic inspections, and other property inspections.
#12 Develop it. If everything checks out, it's time to close the deal and enjoy your property!
