Alaska buyers agents provide Key Tips for Homebuyers in Alaska in 2024:

We found the site, “IBISWorld” to have great Alaska Real Estate Market Statistics

For example, The average median home price in Alaska is $361,900, up by 6.2% YoY. In 2024, it is expected that the median sale price will increase due to the tight inventory. As of the 1st quarter of 2024, the sale-to-list price ratio is at 99.5%,

  • Home Sales: As per September 2023 data, home sales decreased by 9.7% YoY! In September 2023, 763 homes were sold, down from 845 in September 2022.
  • Median Days on Market: The median days on the market for homes for sale was 15 days, down by 16 days YoY.
  • Pending Sales: The number of homes for sale in 2023 dropped by 7.8% YoY compared to 2022. Currently, there are 2K homes for sale in Alaska.
  • Months of Housing Inventory: The average month of housing inventory is 1 month. Low supply makes Alaska’s inventory even worse than the national housing market.
  • Alaska Housing Market Predictions: 2024 Alaskans have survived the shockwaves of high mortgage rates and rising home prices of 2023. Here’s what we predict for Alaska’s housing market:
  • Buyers agents are expecting home Sellers to return to the Market in 2024: Sellers who stayed on the sidelines in 2023 will return. Whitney, the analyst who predicted the 2008 financial crisis accurately, has forecasted that baby boomers looking to downsize will also add up to 30 million housing units.
  • Most analysts are expecting mortgage Interest rates to stabilize by the 2nd Half of 2024: Mortgage rates were 7.79% in October 2023, the highest level in 23 years. However, the rate dropped to 7.35% in November.  Annual inflation rates declined. Speculation is that inflation will stabilize in the second half of 2024.
  • Home Prices May Continue to Rise: Home prices have steadily increased reaching a median value of $362,000 in September 2023. Experts believe home prices will continue to rise until the low supply-high demand dynamic changes.
  • Agents are predicting that the number of Home Buyers will increase in 2024. Mortgage demand rose after the interest rates lowered to 7.35% in November.  Easing inflation and stabilizing interest rates are expected to bring back house hunters.
  • 12.3% of homes purchased in September were new homes, the highest since 2022. Home builders offered $30,000 worth of concessions to attract buyers in 2023.  It is likely that builders and sellers will compete for buyers in 2024.
  • iBuyers Will Continue to Make Lowball Offers: iBuyers offered 104.1% of market value in 2021, but they offered only 86% in 2022 and around 70% in 2023. Opendoor and Offerpad have lost billions of dollars in 2023.

2024: Is it a Buyer’s or Seller’s Market?

Alaska buyers agents believe 2024 may still be a terrific market for sellers. (And buyers, too!) Home prices in Alaska are rising and will continue to rise till the supply-demand dynamic changes.

In November, the mortgage rate plummeted from a two-decade-high rate of 8% to 7.35%, adding more new listings on the market. This shows that those who refused to sell due to mortgage rate lock are finally acclimatizing to 7% rates. It is expected that in the Spring of 2024, more homeowners will follow suit and list properties on Alaska MLS.

In Alaska, certain sectors drive a higher share of state GDP and employ more workers than others. However, simply looking at raw numbers doesn’t always tell the whole story. Factoring in the current year growth percentage, in addition to the annualized growth percentage over the past five years, will give you a deeper understanding of the economic situation.

Is 2024 a good time to buy a house in Alaska?

The following is true for all states, including Alaska:  housing inventory, mortgage rates, and market trends will vary from month to month.  It is good to look at historical trends, but the most important timing decision is very personal and will depend on job moves or personal family situations.

For example, this year listing prices for homes in Alaska were lowest in January. On average, homes were $27,125 less expensive. While in November — the month with the highest prices — the listing prices were $26,487 more than the annual average.  It is nearly impossible to time the market

In truth, the best time to buy a house really depends on the buyer’s priorities. Read on to find out which time of year will give you the most options and the biggest savings when buying a house in Alaska.
