Insider Info: 5 Website Tricks To Find Your Dream Home

Find out how to use this site to take your real estate search to the next level! We sharing 5 of the best tricks for using AKHomeShow.com to find your new dream home.

1. Get New Listings First

Want to know about properties first? There's a couple ways you can do this! First, save our New Alaska Listings page to your favourite bookmarks. Doing so will give you easy access to all the latest and greatest homes for sale.

The other way you can get news listings first is by setting up email alerts through our Advanced Real Estate Search. Simply go to the Advanced Search, and look for homes based on your desired criteria. After you click "Refine Search", a green "Save Search" button will appear!

Click the button, set the Email Frequency to Daily, save and voila!

2. Explore By Price Point

We know that your time is precious, which is why we've organized neighborhoods in Anchorage and Eagle River by price point. This allows you to check out the neighborhoods that are most likely to fit within your budget. Visit the following neighborhood pages to see what communities you can afford:

Eagle River Neighborhoods

You can check out individual neighborhoods, or click the relevant heading to see all the homes within a price point:

PS: If you're looking for Southcentral Alaska homes outside of Anchorage or Eagle River, give us a shout at (907) 360-1600 and we'll help you discover the best neighborhoods for your budget.

3. Search Homes By Map

We love this feature, because it allows you to ignore traditional community boundaries and search homes in the region you want to live. You can narrow results on the Map Search using two filter options: Radius or Polygon.

To use the Radius search, simply click "Draw Radius", then click on the map to choose the epicenter. From here, simply drag your cursor outwards to expand the radius. When you're satisfied with the size of the area covered, just click again. Next, uncheck the "Search in Bounds" option, hit "Refine Search" and bam!

The Polygon search is similar, but even more powerful. Instead of using an epicentre, the polygon search allows you to draw whatever shape you want by clicking the map to set boundaries. When you're done drawing your shape, uncheck "Search in Bounds" and click Refine Search.

Don't forget to utilize the Save Search option to use the same radius or polygon in the future!

4. Research Real Estate Agents

If you aren't already working with one of our talented agents, we invite you to visit the Meet Our Team page!
