I've had buyers that have completed these steps to Home Ownership through NACA. Any experience with buyer assistance programs that agents would like to share? I copied their steps from their NACA website.  Step 1: Homebuyer Workshop                                          You must attend a Homebuyer Workshop.  This is a free educational forum which is open to everyone prior to determining your status as a NACA Member or Non-Member. There are a number of workshops each month.  The Homebuyer Workshop will provide you with an overview of the home buying process, real estate issues, and mortgage options including HUD mortgage programs and the NACA Mortgage.  You will receive important information about becoming mortgage ready and NACA Qualified.  Upon completion of the Homebuyer Workshop y...

Just wondering if any other agents get  buyers looking to purchase around income tax time? I've already gotten a few calls from buyers ready to invest their income tax refund in real estate. Being in the Real Estate industry in the Clarksville AR Market, there wil typically be an influx of buyers around this time.  Happy Tax Season!

One of the most frequent questions I get from Home Buyers is whether they can buy a "fixer-upper" home or not. The answer I give them is, "It Depends." There are lots of considerations when deciding what type of home you'll invest in. One that is "move in ready" or one that needs some work.  It will depend on whether you can put in the "Sweat Equity" or if you are getting a loan in which the home must be "safe, sound, and sanitary." If you're looking to put in some work and have money to put down, you should consider purchasing a foreclosure or a "fixer-upper".  You should go to your lender first to make sure you can invest in this type of home. You will more than likely need a higher down payment and need to get an appraisal both pre and post repairs. I always encourage buyers to make ...

So, you've gotten an accepted offer on the house of your dreams...Now what?There are many things that must be done, but for today, we will focus on your inspection.In AR Real Estate contracts, there is verbiage that state you will have 10 business days to inspect your new home. Unless you and your agent make changes to the contract, you should focus on that 10 day time frame. Remember, it is up to you to inspect your home and know what you are buying.There are a list of  licensed home inspectors that your agent can provide you with. These home inspectors are typically not licensed in any specialty, ie...heating/air, electrical, plumbing, or structural engineers. They will do an inspection of the home using a checklist of items that they will inspect. Once they've done the inspection, th...

I answered the office phone at 8:15 this morning.  On the other end was the familiar voice of an agent from another office.  Her name is Teresa and she's a peach!  She says "Do you have eggs all over your building?  And a bunch of signs from other companies laying around your parking lot?!"  She explained that two other offices in town had been 'egged' overnight and whoever did it pulled a bunch of real estate signs from listed properties and stuck them in their grass.   I surely hadn't noticed anything strange when I pulled in, but I'm thinking I should stroll around the office and check things out...  We were safe!  No eggs anywhere and no signs randomly laying around.  THIS DOES NOT LOOK GOOD FOR US!!  :-)  I jokingly told her I would drill my agents and find out which one did this a...
