This house went on the Market in April 2019. You might ask, why didn’t you wait until summer to list this for your clients? Good question! April is a GREAT time to get a Property in Willow on the market. The reason is this. There is not as much competition as there is in the summer. The inventory of homes for sale in Willow is really low in the winter and spring which could mean your house will attract multiple buyers. BUYERS ARE OUT IN FORCE RIGHT NOW!! They’ve been waiting all winter and now with the melting of snow – they are ready to get going!
Buying a home in Willow
OK, so now lets talk about buying a home in Willow. Let’s talk about your home options first. What type of home are you looking for? Dry cabin with land, a larger home that is lakefront, would you like to be on a river for easy access to fishing, or farther out away from civilization for maximum seclusion?

You can find a modern lakefront home for upwards of $800,000. Here is an example of a listing I have on the upper end of homes in Willow. This unique beauty is being offered at $815,000.
Living in Willow is amazing. It is a simpler way of life. Only a 45 minute drive to Wasilla but it feels very remote and very secluded compared to Wasilla, Palmer, and Anchorage. Buying a home in Willow can save you some money too. The farther you get away from The core area of the Matanuska Valley, and by that I mean Palmer and Wasilla, the less expensive homes are going to be.
