Mat-Su Valley Real Estate
The Matanuska-Susitna Valley, more commonly known as the Mat-Su Valley, is home to roughly 100,000 residents spread out among 23,000 square miles. It encompasses river valleys of the Susitna, Matanuska, and Knik Rivers, and is bordered by the Chugach, Talkeetna, and Alaska mountain ranges. This geography has shaped the way these communities formed. This large borough has several population centers. Palmer, Wasilla, Talkeetna, and Willow are all located in the Mat-Su, and can differ greatly from one another.
Within the sheer size of the Mat-Su lie several options in the real estate market. Talkeetna serves as a bustling tourism town during the summer and a quiet winter recreation site during the winter. Willow has many residents living farther off the beaten path to enjoy aspects of rural life. Wasilla is the largest city in the Mat-Su, with many newly constructed homes near urban conveniences. Palmer is known for its farming community roots and the Alaska State Fair Grounds.
The Mat-Su Valley offers its residents a chance to experience countless lakes, fantastic fishing, gorgeous glaciers, historic sites, and outdoor recreation. With homes to fulfill any requirement and prices to meet any budget, it stands as an attractive destination for incoming buyers. Over 10,000 residents happily make the commute into Anchorage each day for work, if it can mean calling Mat-Su home. As the fastest growing borough in Alaska, Team Dimmick loves to work in this market. Call us today to get a glimpse at what the Mat-Su Valley can offer.
