Storyline

Buying Alaska proves that forgoing basic amenities is a reasonable tradeoff when it comes to breathtaking views and stunning wild surroundings that you can't find anywhere in the lower 48 states. Offering much more than living quarters, these properties are so in tune with the extraordinary landscape that it's often what's beyond the house that proves to be the main attraction, from the ability to hunt and fish from your back deck, to extreme seclusion on your own private island, to self-sustaining features such as smokehouses and greenhouses. However, there are also dangers that come with all the beauty, and living in this rugged and remote terrain can lead to animal attacks and brutal winters that cut you off from society.

Buying Alaska - Real buyers?
5 April 2015 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Thank ya all for your information on it not being "reality". I guessed this as they are so expensive and I had to wonder how some of these people afford $200,000 plus homes. I also questioned buyers choosing one, when as another viewer said, there is usually only one that comes close to their needs. I would say thanks and keep looking! I also wondered about schooling for children and the travel to schools but since it isn't real, that solves that question. Still interesting as I love seeing the scenery and looking at the houses. I live in Texas and enjoy learning about Alaska but don't think we will be moving there anytime soon. I like guessing which one they will "buy". Wish it was "real" but today, what really is?
