Preforeclosure In Alaska

It is a challenge for potential homeowners to find out about pre foreclosure in Alaska. The vast area of the state is one reason, whether those interested live in that state or in more populated areas thousands of miles away. Fishing reports scream out where the biggest salmon and halibut are located. Official records about pending default actions are hard to find.

It is certainly hard to believe that a land mass as large as Alaska remained unexplored for so many thousands of years. It is thought that the first people to live in Alaska followed herd animals to that area from Asia when the Bering Land Bridge was accessible. The Native Alaskan Aborigines stayed in the area instead of continuing south throughout the Americas. Another ice age flooded the land bridge, closing the stretch between Siberia and Alaska.

Discovery of the Bering Strait was dimmed by the failure to find the legendary Northwest Passage. Seward's Folly refers to the US purchase of Alaska from Russia in 1867. The land cost 2 cents an acre for a total of 7.2 million dollars in gold. Five years later, the cry of “Gold!” arose as it was found in Sitka, followed by the Juneau Gold Rush and later, the Klondike Gold Rush. That time alone brought over 100,000 people between 1897 and 1900. Alaska moved from District status in 1884 to a territory in 1912. It became the 49th state of the Union in 1959.

Major industries include natural gas and oil. Tourism, fishing and wood products are also significant. Denali National Park draws sightseers with its large glaciers, including the Mendenhall Glacier. Some glaciers deposit fertile topsoil each summer to replenish what it takes away.

Salmon fishing on the Kenai River is an unforgettable experience. Each type of salmon has a season, giving the angler the opportunity to land a King or Chinook before returning it to the water. Hopeful homebuyers looking for pre foreclosure properties in the vicinity of Copper Center are surprised to see fish wheels. These unique contraptions lift the salmon out of the water and dump them on a platform for residents. The take is reported to the Department of Natural Resources.

Homes are much the same as those in the lower 48 states. Residents with small plots of lands in Fairbanks and Homer take advantage of the long summer days that inspire huge cabbages, lettuce and other vegetables. Potential homeowners looking for pre foreclosure homes will see 5- gallon buckets filled with soil and plants on porches and around the yard. Plants are then easy to move to and from the greenhouse.
