Buy a parcel during the annual land offering for Alaska residents

Posted on March 14, 2013 


(Anchorage, AK) – The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is pleased to announce the listing of 472 parcels available in the State’s annual sealed-bid auction.  Alaska residents may submit sealed bids in person, by mail, or online between 10 a.m., March 20 and 5 p.m., July 10.  Apparent high bids will be announced the following week. 


Free brochures describing the parcels and how to participate are available at DNR’s Public Information Centers in Anchorage and Fairbanks and the DNR Land Counter in Juneau.  Alternatively, the brochure may be viewed online by visiting and following the “Buy Land” link.


This year’s land offering includes parcels ranging from the Southeast Alaska coastline to Interior river corridors.  Some lots are located on the road system or close to communities while others are in remote, rural locations.  More than 100 parcels are new to the market this year, including ten new parcels created through the Remote Recreational Cabin Sites staking program and 22 parcels recently platted in new subdivisions, some of which have constructed interior roads.  Perhaps the most unique parcel in this offering is the Crown Point property near Moose Pass, which includes a 1,200-square-foot starter home on an acre of land.


If part of your dream is to own a piece of America’s Last Frontier, visit DNR’s “Buy Land” link listed above to obtain additional information about the latest listings and other land sale programs, including parcels available for immediate purchase by residents and nonresidents alike.
