Buying a Home of Your Own in Arkansas

Jul 4, 2008
In the United States, geographic location makes a huge impact on the climate and landscape of your home. For example, some places are arid and brown while others are humid and lush. If you prefer trees to sagebrush, you might be interested in several Arkansas homes that are for sale. In Arkansas, the weather is mild in the winter and hot in the summer, but the humidity helps keep the state green and beautiful. And, if you don't like being warm, several lakes and rivers across the state make it easy to cope with the heat.

In addition to the beautiful environment, residents enjoy a plethora of outdoor activities. Whether you decide to live in the Ozarks, Timberlands, Ouachita, Central, Delta, or River Valley region, outdoor adventures are never far away because the state is full of mountains, rivers, lakes and underground caves. In fact, every region has at least one state or national park. As a result, there are ample opportunities for hiking, fishing, rock climbing, boating and biking in the area.

When you look for a home, you need to consider more than the environment and local attractions though. For most people, median home prices are the most important factor in the equation. Fortunately, all of the natural beauty in Arkansas still wears an affordable price tag. For example, the median price for a 2,000 square foot home in Arkansas would probably be right around $140,000; which is almost $100,000 dollars lower than the national average. When you combine the low housing prices with a low cost of living, Arkansas seems even more attractive to a lot of home buyers.

In general, the northwest and central regions are more expensive because the Little Rock, Fayetteville, and Fort Smith are all located in those areas. And, as the three largest cities in Arkansas, they are also commercial and financial centers. If you don't mind living in a smaller city, a town, or on a farm, the prices get successively better.

If you aren't familiar with Arkansas, a Realtor can help you sort through all the Arkansas homes that are for sale. They will probably start by asking which areas appeal to you tastes and move on to size, amenities and budget. With such an important investment, you will probably want them involved to make the transition go smoothly as well. After all, a Realtor brings a lot of experience and high ethical standards to the table.
