Deadline looms for State’s public land sale offering
(Anchorage, AK) – The State of Alaska reminds the public that the deadline to apply to purchase land in the Department of Natural Resources’ Initial Over-the-Counter offering is approaching. Residents and non-residents alike can choose from nearly 2,500 acres across 350 parcels. The parcels, as large as 40 acres, are valued between $3,000 and $33,000. Applications can be submitted until 5 p.m., August 1 and the apparent winners will be identified during a drawing held in the Department’s Anchorage Public Information Center the following week.
Parcels are available in rural and remote locations in Southcentral and Northern Alaska. Amenities include oceanfront, lakefront, riverfront, roadside, and fly-in access, with parcel sizes ranging from 1 to 40 acres. The properties are priced at appraised values. There is no limit on the number of parcels an applicant may purchase in this offering.
If part of your dream is to own a piece of Alaska’s “Last Frontier,” the State encourages you to review the properties described in the free brochures available at DNR Public Information Centers in Anchorage and Fairbanks, and the public counter for the DNR Land Section in Juneau.
