The Anchorage real estate area offers a unique blend of wild natural beauty and urban sophistication. Anchorage boasts such a high quality of life, that The National Civic League named it one of nine All-America Cities for 2002. It has even won this honor three other times over the past 50 years.
Outdoor adventure, world-class dining, a world class ski resort, shopping, arts and cultural attractions are just a few of the many reasons you will be proud to call Anchorage your home.
Often, it has been referred to as a "little big" city, complete with sky scrapers. Most recently, Anchorage has been named by Forbes and US News & World Report as a city with growth potential, and by Business Week as a city likely to ride out the economic waves hitting the lower 48.
The 1,955 square miles which make up the Municipality of Anchorage, include:
Areas within Anchorage are described as: downtown, Government Hill, Turnagain, west, south, hillside, and east. The Hillside of Anchorage is a loosely defined area of southeast Anchorage. The upper hillside is known for larger homes on larger lots, while the lower hillside features both eclectic and well manicured subdivisions.
Eagle River and Chugiak real estate are nestled between Fort Richardson and the Chugach State Park. Eagle River offers small town charm while remaining close to the "big city" of Anchorage.
Just north of Eagle River is Chugiak, Birchwood and Peters Creek real estate located between Cook Inlet and the Chugach Park. As development moves north, these areas have experienced high growth.
Girdwood real estate is home to a diverse population of outdoor enthusiasts, local business owners, artists, and people who just want to away from downtown Anchorage. And, then theres the Alyeska Resort featuring World Class skiing.
Land is very expensive in the municipality of Anchorage because there is very little public land on which developers can place subdivisions.
