    What kind of deals have you seen some of this go for in past auctions?

    The auctions start at what the State says the Assessed Value of the parcel is worth. In the economy BEFORE Obuma, this usually was anywhere between 40 - 60 percent of what equivalent Lands have sold for in the area. How that translates today, I have little clue. The State will finance these sales, (long tern 20-30 Years with no PrePayment penalty) usually at what the going Mortgage Rate is at the time of Sale, but there usually are a few Deed Restrictions on the land until it is paid off. These are noted in the Deed. Mostly, like you can't LOG, or remove Gravel, FOR SALE, and things like that. You have to check the DEED. ALL Land that passes thru State hands, will have NO MINERAL, OR WATER Rights attached. A Water Right can be obtained from the State DNR, upon application, and then any such Water Right, henceforth is attached to that Deed. The State of Alaska NEVER sells Mineral Rights, or TIDELANDS, and that is by State Statute. ALL land that is is adjacent to TIDELANDS, that has passed thru State hands will have a 50 Ft Public Access Easement above Mean High Water. (High Tide Line) You own the land, but anyone can walk along the beach or drive vehicles on the beach in front of your place. You can get a Use Permit, from DNR, to build docks, boat landings, or other uses on Tidelands, for those adjacent Uplands that you own. That Permit will be issued AFTER you complete the Army Corps of Engineers review, and other State Requirements, and then henceforth it attached to your Uplands Deed. Each Borough (County) will also have Lands Sales, for some of there Municipal Lands that they received from the State, under the Municipal Lands Statute. This is where I purchased my Beach Lot and Upland Lot here. These are usually advertised on each Boroughs Website, or by contacting the Borough Lands Manager. Boroughs usually follow the same rules as the State, for these Auctions. Then there are the usual Private parties that are selling land that they own. I know of a couple of Overpriced Beach Lots, here local, that have been on the market for YEARS, as the owners think they are worth way MORE than what they really are. So if someone is in the "More Money, than Brains" class, and just can't live without a "Chunk of Alaska" I can hel;p you out.... I also know of a couple of upland lots, local, where the owners, just might be willing to sell, as they haven't been around in a decade, or so, and have no plans to return.... ....

    Plus there is a very nice military discount, too. Correct me if I am wrong, BT. I think it said you have to be a resident of AK or plan to be for at least 1 year if you decide to apply the military discount on land purchases? And you need to supply the DD214 of course.

    Depends on the auction.... some are for Residents only and some are for ANYONE... the Military discount does need the Military form for sure...
