Southcentral Alaska is the best place for US Military to live

alaska best place for military to live

Southcentral Alaska is one of the best states in the U.S for our military. It has no sales tax and no income tax. It offers a serene environment, quality homes and a vast number of commodities and services. No other state combines the conveniences of modern age together with the freedom and adventure on the edge of a vast and unspoiled wildness.

Alaska’s largest military base, JBER (Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson), is located in Anchorage. Besides the Municipality of Anchorage, Southcentral Alaska communities also include Eagle River, Chugiak, and the Valley, which includes Wasilla and Palmer. These are the preferred communities for both active and retired military personnel. All of these locales offer a wide variety of work and lifestyle opportunities. Real estate listings offer many different types of homes and properties, including new construction, existing homes and investment possibilities.

Choose Your Own Adventure

Here is where modern life and adventure go hand-in-hand. There are numerous greenbelts, bike paths and parks that are easily accessible for dozens of activities. The hundreds of groomed trails, parks and other venues offer world-class mountain biking, hiking, sledding, cross country and slalom skiing and skating. When you live in Southcentral Alaska, you appreciate all the conveniences of city life without compromising on adventure, open spaces or solitude.

Anchorage and much of the Valley sit on Cook Inlet; hence, the weather is milder than other states during winter, contrary to popular belief. Every winter sport imaginable is available. The Iditarod and Fur Rondy are annual winter events that provide something for every member of your family. Similarly, people fill the beautiful summers with fishing, scenic driving, and swimming, biking as well as abundant wildlife viewing.

Moving to Alaska

Alaska is a resource-rich-state due to the growing demands for oil and other natural resources. Moving to Alaska will provide you with an ample opportunity to experience a strong economy, acquire quality affordable homes, and benefit from a stable housing market. Local commuter communities Eagle River, Chugiak, Wasilla and Palmer, are only 10 to 30 miles outside of JBER, so moving to Alaska will spare you the stress and boredom of sitting on a freeway for extended periods of time.

Southcentral Alaska is also a commercial hub with a wide variety of transportation and cargo industries, which provides for a bountiful supply of goods and services from throughout the world. Alaska’s steady economy maintains a stable housing market. In these turbulent economic times, most cities in the United States experience economic fluctuations that drive up the costs of land and homes. However, our economy here is steady and reliable, and becoming more and more diverse. Alaska’s real estate did not suffer the huge drops in values that affected the rest of the country in 2009 during the market collapse and the mortgage meltdown.

Alaska is a great place to live and raise a family. Alaska provides its residents with higher standards of living coupled with an affordable lifestyle as well as plenty of elbow room. Moving to Alaska will also give you an opportunity to explore and experience the outdoors from an urban or rural setting. It’s your choice. Give me a call, text  at 1 907 230 1992 or email I am ready to help you in all your real estate needs.
