Robert Swetz has found another property in Alaska

By
Industry Observer

I have been searching for vacant land and a possible home in Alaska for a great price.

I have not found a home that I really like and have not really decided where exactly I would like to live in Alaska when I retire.

Robert Swetz did find a wonderful vacant 2 acre lot 5 miles north of Homer Alaska in 2015 that I bought and paid in full.

And now I have fallen in love with another area for a future retirement home.

There are around eight 5 acre parcels and several larger vacant lots around Trapper Creek close to Palmer Alaska.

The Trapper Creek has to be one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen very close to the Knike Glacier and Knike River.

 

Please take a look at my post with photographs just before this one. The photos were taken around the Trapper Creek area. I also loaded some other spectacular photos on my facebook accounts.

 

I will definitely be purchasing one of these lots very soon this year and will post more fresh photos in the next couple days, so stay tuned.

Hello Laura ...

You are so right and I think in the future it will be Alaska and Northern California, both breath-taking places ;o)

 Good morning Robert Vegas Bob Swetz . Pretty soon, you'll be like most Alaskans. Live there in the summer and go south for the winter.

Alaskans go to Hawaii in droves during the winter, VB. Think about it! Another place to look for property.
