Anchorage Municipality, Alaska VA Home Loan Info

Anchorage Municipality va homes2021 $0 down, VA home loan limit for Anchorage Municipality is $822,375.

Located in South Central Alaska, Anchorage Municipality, with a population of 300,950 inhabitants is by far the most populated city in the state. 40 percent of state residents live in the municipality. New York is the only state with a greater percentage of state residents concentrated in one city. Four times named an All-America-City, Anchorage is widely considered the most tax-friendly city in the country. Anchorage has the rare distinction among Alaskan communities as having neither been a mining or fishing camp. Established in 1914, the city was originally a railroad community. The local economy was heavily based on the Alaska Railroad. Anchorage experienced a population boom over the 20-year period between the 1930s and 1950s. The strategic geographic location coupled with the growing air-transit industry brought about military bases and airports, which in turn caused the populous to swell. With the vast majority of state inhabitants situated on the “rail belt” between Fairbanks and Anchorage, several movements over previous years have attempted to relocate the state capital to Anchorage.

Today, the largest economic influences of the area include the military, municipal, state and federal government and the tourism industry. Located in South-central Alaska, the climate features subarctic conditions. The summertime is rainy, and winter days are cloudy. During the winter, the days are short and during summer the days are long. Diversity in wildlife permeates the area. It is not uncommon to see black bears, grizzly bears, moose and mountain goats sauntering around town.

Places to visit in Anchorage include the Anchorage Museum at Ramuson Center, the Oscar Anderson House Museum, the Alaska Museum of Natural History, the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum, the Alaska Native Heritage Center, and the Imaginarium: Science Discovery Center.

The city has a veteran population of 30,854. The median household income is $76,495, and the median home value is $277,100.

The area is extremely military friendly and has a long history as a military hub. In 2010 Fort Richardson Army Post and Elmendorf Air Force Base were merged to create Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.

There are several major units assigned to the base:

  • Alaskan Command
  • Alaskan Norad Region
  • 3d Wing
  • Eleventh Air Force
  • United States Army Alaska
  • 4th Brigade 25th Infantry Division
  • 673rd Air Base Wing
