Juneau has perhaps the tightest housing market in the state.
The average assessed value of the Capital City’s single family homes is nearly $350,000. Rents are also among the highest in the state. The average rental unit in Juneau currently goes for more than $1,150 dollars a month.
The Juneau Assembly’s new ad-hoc Housing Committee met for the first time yesterday to lay the foundation for a day-long workshop on barriers to new housing construction in the Capital City.
