1.5 BILLION DOLLARS – Thanks, AHFC! - 03/16/08 06:14 PM
The mission statement is "To Provide Alaskans Access to Safe, Quality, Affordable Housing". Since 1986, Alaska Housing Finance Corporation has contributed over 1.5 billion dollars to the State of Alaska through cash transfers, debt service payments and capital projects after paying all their own operating expenses. This is also after they spend millions each year helping Alaskans with their housing needs. It is nothing short of amazing, and I'd like to recognize the good people at AHFC for their efforts.

Woah. 40,000 points. How did that happen? - 03/11/08 02:11 AM
Tonight I was finally posting a few articles I'd written for Active Rain, many while I was on vacation and without internet access. I've got a list of ideas and some drafts. Since some of them were timely but getting stale fast, I decided to just get them posted before they were outdated. Many of my drafts will not be posts at all. When looking at the home page I was surprised to notice I crossed the 40,000 points mark. It's been quite a journey. I have learned so much here. I've benefited from agents, brokers, loan officers, stagers, home inspectors and (14 comments)
Chicken Little can STILL relax in Juneau! - 03/11/08 01:41 AM
Last year, about this time, I did a post http://activerain.com/blogsview/54400/RELAX-Chicken-Little regarding the Juneau market. I was going to use that one as a template to do a similar market report tonight. What I ended up with though was a side-by-side comparison of the two markets. Current market statistics are in bold. The comparison notes are more interesting than what I was originally going to post. I find it interesting that really, not much has changed. If you just look at the statistics, you will see some areas that comes across as fairly dramatic, but if you look at the size of our (4 comments)
Juneau is under attack. Again. - 03/11/08 12:34 AM
For as long as I can remember there's been a push to move the seat of government from Juneau to somewhere near Anchorage. You can almost set your calendar by it. Every time it happens, people plan for the worst and hope for the best. Property prices predictably start to fall but bounce right back after the battle is over. One of the things you need to understand is FRANK. Not the governor we chased off - but Fiscally Responsible Alaskans Needing Knowledge. This basically means that if the legislature, or the capital are going to move, the costs must be approved by the voters (3 comments)
As the winter snow melts, gardeners start to get a little fidgety. There's so much to do this gardening season, and most of us just cannot wait to get started. However, the ground is still frozen and of course a late frost or even snowstorm could undo weeks of work between now and mid-April. There are still plenty of things one can do to help get the season started: •1. Start some seedlings indoors. Things like tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, artichokes, cabbages and many flowers should be started now. Make sure to start with sterile germinating mix and clean pots. •2. As the snow (5 comments)
