cabot arkansas: How to Help Cabot Arkansas Homes Sell in a Slower Market - 01/19/08 12:07 PM
There was a recent article posted by Yahoo. It highlighted ways to help your home in a down market. Even though I would not consider the Cabot Arkansas home market a down market, there were some interesting tips that may help some Cabot home sellers.
1. Try to look like your neighbors
Not physically, but your home should be similar to what other homes in the neighborhood look like. You do not want your home to be the largest home on the block or the nicest. Why? When pulling comparables in the neighborhood (which is what agents and appraisers do) it will … (0 comments)

cabot arkansas: Profit From Cabot Arkansas Foreclosures - 10/09/07 12:23 PM
It is no secret that the foreclosure rate is high all around the nation. This has helped lead to all of the lender issues that the news has covered so much. The good news is that you can profit from the foreclosures. Investors in Cabot have all sorts of opportunities to buy property for cheap and profit from them.
I am not saying that you can get a $150,000 home for $100. Banks ask professionals what the value of a home is, they do not let them go for what some so called "Real Estate Pros" say is pennies on the dollar.

cabot arkansas: Come To Cabot and Enjoy Cabotfest - 10/06/07 06:20 AM
It seems like almost every small town in America has their own annual event that locals can come out and enjoy. Many of the towns advertise the events to maybe attract newcomers to the area. Most of the time the events that I have seen have some things in common. They all have a carnival, booths for local businesses, and games for kids. The reason these events all have these things is because you have to entertain the kids & local businesses will do anything to get their name out.
Cabotfest in Cabot is no different then that. There will be all … (0 comments)

cabot arkansas: Basics about marketing You - 09/13/07 08:28 AM
There are agents everywhere. The small town that I work in has one agent to every two hundred people in the town. How can you stand out? There has to be a way to differentiate yourself from other agents. In fact, there are two primary ways that you can establish a competitive advantage. Here they are and a little bit about them.
1. Product/service differentiation
Apple is a leader at this advantage. They always try to have new products they are introducing to stay ahead of the curve. Many manufacturers can not keep up with them due to patent laws and lack of technology, … (3 comments)

cabot arkansas: Cabot Arkansas Home Selling Secrets - 08/27/07 10:15 AM
Generally, when a home seller lists their home to sell they want to get rid of the property as soon as possible. No home seller wants to list their property and have it sit on the market for months.

I will periodically post tips just for Cabot AR home owners and other times I will post tips for homes in general.
