  • Cheaper than you might think! While property values are higher than the rest of the nation, the median cost of a house in Fairbanks is around 18% below the Alaska average. It is also significantly cheaper than many larger American metropolitan areas. Buying a home here is a solid investment; home values have nearly doubled since 2000 and there are plenty of rent to own homes available on the local market. Popular neighborhoods include Lemeta and Westgate.
  • Appetizing restaurants! Those long, cold Alaskan winters mean folks around Fairbanks have an appetite for hearty food. Located next to the Chena River in a national historic site that harkens back to the Fairbanks gold mining era, the charming and quirky Pumphouse Restaurant will satisfy the cravings of steak lovers. Those with a sweeter tooth will love indulging in a spot of brunch at the Cookie Jar on Danby Street, a long time favorite spot for locals who can't get enough of the famous Savannah Cream Cake. The Wolf Run Restaurant, set in an old timber house, has received critical acclaim for its gourmet American and Middle Eastern fusion dishes, such as the mezze plates or cedar plank salmon.
  • Wide range of houses for rent! Those looking for homes for rent in Fairbanks should have little to no problem finding something to their tastes. 61.4% of residents are in rental properties compared to 35.6% in Alaska as a whole and the local vacancy rate stands at a healthy 9.2%. However, prospective renters should realize that high energy costs make single unit rental homes in Fairbanks are among the priciest in the state. It's not all bad news, though, as median rent for all other unit types is around 15% below the Alaska average. The area around South Cushman Street and 23rd Avenue offers more affordable rents for those on a budget.
