INSIDE REAL ESTATE: Anchorage, Kodiak only areas to see vacancies up, rents down

Anchorage and Kodiak were the only two areas where vacancies rose in 2018 and rents dropped, according to the latest survey by Alaska Economic Trends in conjunction with the Alaska Housing Finance Corp.

Anchorage’s vacancy factor rose to 6.2 percent, up slightly more than 1 percent due to negative migration. Meanwhile, the Matanuska-Susitna Borough had a net migration of 1,233. Its vacancy factor was down to 7.3 percent from 7.6 percent in 2017. However, it was still higher than Anchorage’s.

Single-family homes in Anchorage have an average monthly rental rate of $2,149. Higher rental income can be obtained for four-bedroom homes that have a double- or triple-car garage. Renters with pets can expect to pay an additional $100 to $150 per month plus a pet deposit according to leasing agents. Smokers also pay a premium.

The most popular rental areas and the most expensive in Anchorage are in the Bootlegger’s Cove area and southeast Anchorage. Rental rates tend to be lower in East Anchorage, which has an abundance of zero lot lines and older two-bedroom, multi-family units.

Aurora Housing Authority labeled 'troubled' by HUD for second straight year

The designation, published in July, covers the fiscal year ending in March 2017. Because of the label, the Aurora Housing Authority is likely to be subject to a HUD review and had to submit a correction plan. The agency’s use of a certain pot of money is also likely to be restricted.

Though widespread information about other housing authorities’ assessments has not been made public this year, HUD data made public last year shows that of 63 Illinois housing authorities that were assessed for 2016, the Aurora Housing Authority was one of just five deemed troubled.

The agency’s designation for the year ending in March 2016, issued in 2017, was based in part on an independent audit that raised several concerns. Those included spending on a scholarship party, personal use of housing authority vehicles, record keeping and aspects of the agency’s close relationship with the now-dormant Northern Lights Development Corporation. That relationship was detailed in a Beacon-News investigation published in June 2017.
