Real Estate Services Division
Our mission is to buy, sell and lease land for other municipal departments (the public sector), and maintain & manage municipal lands not in the Heritage Land Bank or the Anchorage Community Development Authority inventories.
Real Estate Services (RES) also forecloses and sells private sector properties of which the MOA must take deed under a delinquent tax and/or special assessment foreclosure. Following Assembly approval, sales are conducted annually of these properties via sealed bid sale.
