Anchorage Election Workers Needed Voting is a right we cherish here in the United States.  One of the greatest civic duties an average Anchorage citizen can perform is not just voting, but actually working a polling place during an election.  Anytime you cast your vote, the people you check in with and ask questions of are volunteers.  Right now, Anchorage election workers are needed for on April 1st (and that's not a joke).  Are you willing to volunteer your time for this important civic duty? When you work an Anchorage election, you get to connect with members of the community.  Typically, the City of Anchorage needs 600 volunteers to work 120 polling places every Election Day.  Election workers are paid $9.50 per hour for their training time as well as their Election Day duties.  On ...

Top 5 Tips for Pricing Your Home Right When it comes to pricing your house for sale, you might be tempted to set a price that includes your principle investment and a hefty profit. However, this strategy rarely works for most of the homeowners. Nearly 40 percent of the homes listed in multiple listing services were not sold or expired in 2013.

With the advance tools and internet, buyers are very well aware of the market prices and they prefer a house that offers best value for their money. Pricing your home is a combination of science as well as an art. If you are planning to sell your home at the right price, here ...
