Wasilla Real Estate News Market Memo for June 30-July 6, 2009

Here are the real estate statistics for Wasilla, Palmer, and the rest of the Mat-Su Valley. These numbers are for single family residences. If you would like specific information for some other type of real estate, drop me an email.

This was a strong week for Mat-Su real estate. If we take this week as an indication things are getting busier. We have more pendings and more closings than normal.

I believe that buyers are beginning to realize that the low interest rates may not last. Also, the first time home buyer rebate of $8,000 is scheduled to go away by Dec 1 so time is of the essence.


Average Price Median Price DOM
New 36 $253,269 $235,000 .
Total Active 932 $288,762 $239,043 133
Pending 26 $234,369 $234,950 81
Closed 35 $212,198 $225,000 68

There are some great properties out there. I sent out my deals of the week last Friday. If you didn’t get it, drop me a line and ask for it. Some of the properties on that list are already sold, but some are still available.
