The information in this summary report regarding current Oceanview listings and sales activity is updated at least weekly. For the purposes of this blog, and in order to effectively research the MLS database, I have defined Oceanview Homes as having a legal description beginning with either “Oceanview” or “Flying Crown”. There are a total of 556 single family homes in the Oceanview neighborhood meeting this definition.
As of February 2, 2017 we have one Oceanview home currently listed for sale in the Multiple Listing Service. Click on “Oceanview Homes for Sale” in the black Menu Bar above to access the link to daily updated, interactive listing reports for all MLS listed Oceanview homes currently for sale.

There are currently two Oceanview homes listed as “pending” sales in the MLS, meaning they are under contract with a buyer and should close within the next month or two.
In the past twelve months, a total of 32 Oceanview/Flying Crown Subdivision single family homes were listed in the MLS and sold. The multi-million dollar sale of 960 Coral Lane is left out of the following numbers in order to get true averages. The average home sales price in Oceanview/Flying Crown Subdivision was $399,999. The median sales price was $374,000. These homes sold in an average of 85 days from their original listing date to their sale pending date, at an average reduction of $30,665 from their original list price. In 20 of the 32 sales, the seller paid an average additional $6,903, assisting in buyer’s closing costs. Just remember, these are average numbers. Some sales went much faster, with little or no price reductions. Others took much longer, with major price reductions. Location, condition, price and marketing are major factors in the final result.
Because of the following: a. Alaska is a “non-disclosure state”, b. the MLS is a private database, and c. this is a public website…..I cannot provide additional private, Oceanview sale specific information, including sales price. With that said, the MLS does have a public website with listing reports, photos, etc., of all MLS listed homes currently for sale, along with limited sales statistics and numerous informational links.
