Why Buy New? (October 30, 2105)



New Hultquist communities are popping up all over Anchorage, including southwest, southeast, the hillside and east Anchorage. Hultquist Homes offers a variety of floor plans and homesite options, making it easy for you to find the home and neighborhood of your dreams. Home values begin at only $279,500.

Money Savings

All new Hultquist Homes are built to AHFC’s five star energy rating which make them more energy efficient than homes that were built just five to ten years ago. With most Anchorage homes over 30 years old, these energy efficiency savings are a significant financial benefit to new home buyers.

Advanced Technology and Design

Retrofitting an older home can be costly and time consuming. Wiring, appliances, shingles, furnaces, and windows are just some of the features that have improved greatly. Buy new and get current technology and design. Many of these costs are hidden until it comes time for retrofitting.


Hultquist Homes has a variety of homes in different stages of the construction process, giving you more choices. Why buy someone else’s decorating ideas when you can incorporate your own style preferences in a new home?

Home Warranty

Hultquist Homes offers a two-year interior warranty in addition to Alaska’s ten year structural warranty. No other builder in Alaska offers such a commitment to quality. Hultquist Homes will come back twice to repair the inevitable stress cracks caused by Alaska’s weather, as well as other items.

Watch Your Home Being Constructed

Once the foundation on your new home purchase has been completed and the lumber drop made, Hultquist Homes will provide you with a secret, online pass code so you can track the schedule and modifications to your home. It’s a cool way to keep track of your new home being built even while you are on vacation!
