Selling a property was once a job that required a lot of work by real estate brokers and large agencies because information about the local market, comparable home values, and marketing a home required a lot of manual work. This made selling a home by owner very cumbersome. However, the internet has affected and permanently altered just about every aspect of our daily lives, and real estate is no exception.

Previously, anyone who wanted to sell a property, no matter the size or price, would have to go to a real estate broker, and they would bring a lot value to the home selling process. They would decide on the value, doing the work to get it listed in various publications, and so on. Now, when you want to sell your house, you can post your own listing on a website like Fizber, and cut out the middle man altogether.

The one problem with that is, there are so many different websites and services available where you can list a house, it's important to post your listing where buyers and buyers agents are looking. This is where Fizber's Multiple Listing Service (MLS) Alaska can really help you out.

The Fizber Alaska MLS syndicates to hundreds of real estate related websites, allowing you to combine the best of both worlds-the exposure to thousands of buyers and buyers agents and the ease and affordability of bypassing a realtor to list it yourself. Not only will you get broad exposure, you will also get plenty of local Alaska coverage, as you will be paired with a local Alaska MLS agent to help you get the maximum exposure possible for your property.

The Alaska MLS has a flat fee of $295 to list your home for six months. It will literally save you thousands, as a real estate firm will usually charge six percent of the sales price to list and sell your home. Typically, buyers agents are looking on the MLS for their clients, so it's important offer a buyer's agent commission of 2%-3% of the purchase price. You are basically saving the listing portion of the commission which is thousands of dollars.

More information about Alaska market trends

Home appreciation in Alaska is up 3.9 percent on last year, and the experts are predicting that property values will continue to rise to 5.8 percent within the next year. Alaska has a stable housing market, but mostly for homes that are under $500,000. Supply and demand is about equal for homes between $500,000 and $750,000. So for those low to mid level houses, it's a seller's market. However, when it comes to selling higher end homes, it tends to be a little more of a struggle in this state. The turnaround tends to be around a year.

The good news is, Alaska ranks lowest in the nation when it comes to subprime delinquencies and foreclosures. At just 6.3 percent for the former-compared with a 16.2 percent national average-and 1.7 percent for the latter-below the 7.8 percent national average-any opportunists looking to swoop in and take advantage of Alaska basement homes will come up short.


Pricing Your Home Accurately

The average home price in Alaska is currently $268,600, and the market is trending up.

When pricing your home however, it is important to take into consideration the county in which it is located. Currently, the county with the highest average house price is Nome. The average house price there is $841,363, almost double the average in any other county, and in the higher price range that has less of a demand in Alaska. And since Nome is only ninth when it comes to the most popular places to live in the state, there may be even less demand, and you may have to be cautious when deciding on an asking price. Compare this with Anchorage, which is number one in popularity, with the more popular low-to-mid range asking price, and you can see how you might be able to bump your listing price up a bit.


Pro FSBO Tip: Selling a Higher End Home in a Slow-Selling Alaska Market

As we have already mentioned, higher end homes are a lot harder to sell in the Alaska housing market, so it may take a little more effort to sell a property in the $750,000 and up range. Here are some tips to help you out.

Generally, the best time of the year to list a house on the MLS Alaska is in the spring. After receiving their tax refunds, more people are looking to use their refund on purchasing a new property, and are more likely to pay full price. To further support this, 60 percent of people move in the summer, proving a sales peak in the spring.

The best day of the week to list a house is on a Thursday, especially in a seller's market. Saturday is the busiest day of for real estate so it's a good idea to get your listing out a couple days before that so buyers and their agents can include your listing in their scheduled of home tours over the weekend. The MLS will also show that the listing has only been on the market for two days. This is important because, the fewer days a house has been on the market, the more likely a buyer is going to pay full price for it. Another benefit of listing on Thursday, is even by the next Saturday, your listing will only been on the market for nine days, keeping in the single digits for another weekend.

One more tip for pricing your property is to make sure that the listed price doesn't end in a zero. Even if you are rounding down, studies show that a round number can actually decrease the final price by just under one percent. That is because buyers tend to perceive rounded costs that end in zeros as higher than those that are a more specific.

Other tips for selling high end properties are property specific things, such as highlight the location and making sure that your spell out how unique you home is. This makes it more attractive to buyers. Using the Fizber MLS Alaska will guarantee that your listing sees the most eyeballs possible, and it will give your property the best shot at selling your home.
