    So, what can be learned from these statistics?

    For starters, our Anchorage Single Family market is holding strong. Despite more listings and less pendings/closings, we still have not seen the average days on market rise and prices are actually up. Why would homes continue to sell at a high price when there are more homes sitting on the open market, and sellers are forced to continually reduce their price to attract buyers? On the surface those facts seem to contradict one another.
    However, with an economy that is gaining momentum and entering the busy season, buyers are still willing to pay market value for homes that are move-in ready and well maintained. These types of properties sell very quickly for prices equal to, or above list price. The homes that we have noticed remaining on the market for months are the ones in a dilapidated condition or with much needed updates. With that in mind, expect the prices on turn-key homes to remain steady throughout our summer months.
