ANCHORAGE - The Alaska housing market is trying to distance itself from the falling home prices and mortgage defaults occurring in the Lower 48.
It is doing it with a media campaign in which the Alaska Housing Finance Corp. attempts to stimulate confidence in the Alaska housing market.
The ads are running in prime time on television networks and radio stations.
In the ads, Sherrie Simmonds, spokeswoman for the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation, is relentlessly positive about the housing market, telling viewers that prices are stable and it's a great time to buy.
