New Construction in Juneau
Juneau, Alaska possesses a healthy housing market including new home construction. We generally have some spec homes on the market, however, new constructions will primarily be presales and custom homes.
"In 2010, 55 new housing units were permitted for construction in Juneau, including 42 single family homes and 13 duplexes or multiplex units. This represents an increase of 17 units over 2009 but is down significantly from earlier years," as reported in the Juneau Economic Development Council’s “2011 Juneau Economic Report.”
Our cost of construction had increased significantly due to increased material prices and shipping charges after Hurricane Katrina. However, our market has been stable for the last four years which has created a favorable and encouraging new construction market.
