Investing in commercial real estate in Anchorage Alaska

8 Nov 2017 · by Chad Graham

There are many benefits to be gained by investing in commercial real estate property in Anchorage, Alaska. Anchorage is the most populated city in Alaska and contains more than 40% of the total population of the state, making it a specifically good area in which to invest in commercial property. Anchorage also has the honor of having been named an All-American City on four occasions, as well as having earned the title of the most tax-friendly city in the U.S., according to Kiplinger. The location of Anchorage, Alaska makes it an ideal location for refueling stops for many international passenger airline flights and the city also houses a major FedEx hub. All of these factors mean that Anchorage has a lot of people not only living there, but passing through, which is always good news for businesses.

Investing in commercial real estate in Anchorage typically tends to be more lucrative than investments made in residential properties in the area. This is due to several factors. It is easier for investors to secure a favorable financing rate when investing in a pre-existing commercial property. Buyers can often receive low interest rates when buying a commercial property in the area. Commercial real estate, unlike investments such as stocks or bonds, tends to retain its value or even appreciate in value because both the physical property and the building structures are considered to be “hard assets”.

Commercial real estate properties offer good appreciation value and any improvements a tenant makes to their business can work to increase the overall value of the entire property. Commercial investments also offer buyers a shield when it comes to inflation, as prices tend to increase along with inflation. This acts as a buffer so that the property owner can keep up with inflation and not lose money on their commercial investment.

Choosing to invest in commercial real estate properties also offers the benefit of higher income potential over residential investments. This can prove especially true for properties in the area that yield higher rental rates or lease payments. Choosing the location in which you invest can make the difference in the amount of income you receive from the property over time.

With its high population and ability to attract tourists and visitors, Anchorage is an ideal location in which to invest in commercial properties. Where there are people, there is a need for offices, shopping, and dining establishments. Investing in the commercial side of Anchorage can be a benefit to the local economy as well as to the investor’s finances.
