About Alaska – The Last Frontier
- Alaska is the biggest state in the United States, but because it’s not densely populated, its population is actually the smallest in the entire country. Less than 800,000 people call Alaska home, which makes it ideal for people who want to be able to stretch out and own larger pieces of land.
- More than 80% of the state’s revenue comes from the oil and gas industries. The fishing industry also exports fish to other parts of the country, including salmon, cod, pollock and crab.
- The state’s unemployment rate is 7.5% and is both dropping and below the country’s overall average. Major employers in the state include Providence Health & Services, Walmart/Sam’s Club, Carrs/Safeway and Fred Meyer.
- The median household income in 2011 was just under $68,000, while the median house value in September 2012 was $276,900.
Why Veterans Choose Alaska
- After being stationed in Alaska, many Veterans consider changing their permanent residence to the state, partially because residents aren’t subject to an individual income tax. Alaska does not have a state sales tax and its residents are also eligible to receive a Permanent Fun Dividend, a portion of appropriated oil revenues. This payout in 2012 is $878, but has been as high as $2,069 in 2008.
- Military bases in Alaska include Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Eielson AFB, Fort Wainwright and Fort Greely.
- The Alaska VA Healthcare System has a main office in Anchorage, with satellite clinics in Fairbanks, Kenai, Juneau and Mat-Su.
- Veterans make up 17% of Alaska’s population, which is the highest number of Veterans per capita in the United States.
Don’t Qualify For VA Loans? Consider An FHA Loan Instead
If you don’t qualify for an Alaska VA loan, Capital Bank, N.A. can help you purchase a home through another government-backed program. FHA loans offer home buyers the chance to buy a house with just 3.5% down, instead of the traditional 20% down payment requirement. One major benefit of the FHA purchase loan program is that it’s not necessary to have perfect credit.
