juneau real estate: Doing the right thing, and it feels good! - 03/01/12 04:56 PM
Juneau is a small town, and pretty much everybody knows everybody else. It's hard not to trip over each other, and over our clients. But the fact is, buyers and sellers come and go, we all need to continue to work together, and we don't have room to cut-throat eachother. I just had a nice visit from another licensee in our town. She brought me a HUGE bag of Boy Scout Chocolatey Triple Delight as a "thank you"! I listed a house and someone emailed me about it right after it hit my website. My seller had told me an agent we (4 comments)
Recently a few licensees in Juneau have taken exception to what they believe are unnecessary repairs called out by our Juneau home inspectors. Specifically, a CO detector in a home with no garage and no carbon based appliance and no parking near the doors was recently mentioned. In an effort to reduce costs to the sellers for these repairs, some have gone so far as to suggest to the buyer's licensee that the report NOT be released to the appraiser. In our area, if the appraiser says a repair is required, the bank will require it be completed prior to funding. A listing agent (35 comments)
juneau real estate: The Juneau economy is growing! - 10/14/07 09:05 PM
We enjoy a healthy economy in our little city. Just a little background... Juneau's population is approximately 30,000 - give or take several hundred. Juneau is right on the ocean. We are surrounded by 3,000 foot mountains so the community is built in little fringes along the coast and into several small and two medium sized valleys. This area was completely covered by ice several hundred years ago. We are now surrounded by Sitka Spruce, Hemlock and alder trees. We have less than 100 miles of two lane paved road and only about 10 miles of four lane road. You cannot drive (7 comments)
juneau real estate: First Frost, “Goodbye summer” and “Hello winter” - 10/05/07 08:13 PM
We had our first frost the other night. Today it was blowing about 40 mph and raining hard. I'm not fond of winter. I don't like to be wet and I don't like to be cold. It's enough to make me wonder why I live in Alaska - especially Southeast Alaska where it is wet and cold. It's also quite dark. During the summer we enjoy endless days and it hardly gets dark at all. In winter of course, it's quite the opposite. It is dark when you leave home, and it's dark when you come home. The seasons affect different people (17 comments)

juneau real estate: RELAX, Chicken Little! - 03/08/07 12:13 AM
The sky is not falling! The Juneau real estate market is NOT crashing. Right now there are 76 single family homes on the MLS in Juneau. That is a LOT for this market. Most of 2006 there were only about 35 single family homes available at any given time. Everywhere you look there are "For Sale" signs. It makes a person wonder. What I've noticed is a noticeable lack of "FSBO" signs. There are a few, but not like what we saw during 2005 and 2006. Sellers didn't even want to talk to a real estate professional. Most agents were begging for listings. (3 comments)
