During their home buying journey, the Kutynas had several homes fall through at some point in the buying process. Finally, they found a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home in Chiniak on five and a half acres. Unlike the other properties that they tried to purchase, this one was move-in ready. The buyers helped to expedite the closing process and it only took two weeks!
After years of patiently searching Brandon and Mary Jane have found the home of their dreams. They love living way out in Chiniak and have a lot to keep them busy with over five acres of land. Mary Jane’s advice to current or prospective housing participants is that using a rental voucher and housing assistance requires some give and take but is worth it in the end. The Kodiak community is small but very helpful if you’re willing to work together.
