CONGRATULATIONS JONESBORO ARKANSAS!!! WOW....What a Great compliment to my hometown. This is all based on research conducted by the U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics. Jonesboro has a unemployment rate of 6.5 percent, which is very strong compared to the national level. We have our great manufactors of Frito-Lay, Nestle, Butterball, Nordex and others to thank for the unemployment being that low. Jonesboro also has great medical facility in St. Bernards and our new NEA Baptist Hospital and their employment. Yes, Jonesboro is a GREAT place to call HOME. Cost of living is low compared to other places as well. I am very proud to serve Jonesboro Ar. in the Real Estate market as we all know the Real Estate market has been in down times in lots of areas. I can say, we have been and continue to be strong in the housing market as well. So, if you are searching for a great place to raise your family that offers awesome schools, parks, nature center, JOBS, and shopping look no further than Jonesboro, Ar. the #4 LEAST EXPENSIVE place to LIVE.
