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...

Spring is here and lot of homeowners   are thinking, it is time to put their home on the market. Now that the decision has been made to sell your home, you'll want to look at it differently. It's now a house "for sale"  and you have to look at it through a "buyers" eyes. Dressing your house for success doesn't have to be expensive or time consuming. First, lets start with outdoors....spruce up all around the house outside, trim shrubs, weed garden beds, clean off your outdoor furniture, fix doorbells and door knobs, and any broken windows need to be replaced. Let's go indoors...declutter  kitchen cabinets and  keep counter tops clear, clean closets, keep bathrooms scrubbed, tidy, fresh towels are a good idea as baths and kitchens make the biggest impression on a buyer. Keep shades open ...

The housing recovery is continuing to be strong going  into 2013. The interest rates being the lowest in over 40 years, has been a huge factor. I know our market in Jonesboro, Arkansas has not been affected as much as other places. Jonesboro Real Estate continues to be strong. We have a great manufacturing industry that is food related, which is going strong. I am looking forward to working with both buyers and sellers in 2013. I hope all my fellow Realtors  have a booming year.

TEAM(tem)n. a group of people working and playing together. Teamwork n. joint action by a group of people. Did you notice there is not a I in the word team or teamwork. Selling a home or property is a team effort. It is both Realtor and Sellers responsiblity to work together until property is closed and check is in hand. As I list I tell seller first and foremost we are forming a "TEAM" to get this listing SOLD. If any of you have ever played sports you know how important your team mates are. I have  played sports all my life and all the championship games I played in, we as a team walked to center court and accepted that trophy. My coach always said "There is not a I in TEAM" so therefore why would one person accept a trophy. That is a life lesson I have taken with me even as my ball p...

I know I am not the only Realtor that gets these calls? Each time I get one I ask the same question. I get numerous answers, some are understandable " YES, if your credit score is below 400 you probably need to rent. But, I am so surprised at the callers that say "I don't know" I guess I really haven't thought about buying. After talking with them you figure out the rent they are paying could purchase a nice home, one you could own and call "HOME". I know there are lots of times in your life that renting is the best option. For instance, if you are only going to be in this area for less than a year, or collage students just finishing up their studies. But, just because you don't know why you rent....just boggles my mind.  I had one of these callers a few months ago and after talking wit...

Will Volkswagen’s Super Bowl ad meet the expectations it set with last year’s ad? May The Force Be With Them Will Volkswagen’s Super Bowl ad meet the expectations it set with last year’s ad? Ad of the year “The Force,” Volkswagen’s commercial for the 2012 Passat, which debuted during the 2011 Super Bowl, won AdAge’s Commercial of the Year award and, since being uploaded 11 months ago, has garnered close to 50 million views on YouTube, making it the most watched commercial on YouTube in 2011. Commercials now have trailers this year, taking a lesson from the movies and building on the success of “The Force,” Volkswagen has released a“teaser” for its Game Day Commercial — turning its 30 second spot into a month of advertising for VW, before the Super Bowl (or the ad) even airs.Is it the ga...

What is a Pre-Approval letter? I get this question ask alot, especially comes from First Time Home Buyers. What is so important about a Pre-Approval letter. As a Realtor let me help you with these questions. First of all, if you are a serious buyer it is a must to get pre-approved. This determines your borrowing power. We do not want to be looking at homes we can not afford, you need to know how much you are qualified for. Also, what type of loan are you getting, if it is a Rural Development you will not need a down payment, it is  100% financing, if it is FHA you will need at this time 3.5% down payment. It is very important to get with a lender and let the lender go over all your options. Pre-approval means your credit files have been reviewed and based on this  information the lender...

(from Webmonkey) If you think Wikipedia is down this week, you’re right. Wikipedia, which is the sixth most popular site in the world, along with hundreds of other sites, will go dark this week for 24 hours to protest SOPA and PIPA, two bills that have been introduced in Congress to address internet piracy and protect copyright holders. Major internet players are united in their opposition to the bills, saying they are in direct conflict with the ideal of an open Internet — “the bills could require your Internet provider to block websites that are involved in digital file sharing. And search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing could be stopped from linking to them.” (ABC News) SOPA — the Stop Online Piracy Act — was introduced to the House in October of last year and PIPA (Protect I...

Tim Tebow breaks sports record and social media record in the same game By all reports, last Sunday’s wild-card game between the Steelers and the Broncos ended in the quickest overtime in NFL history: 11 seconds. “It was the first overtime game with the new rules instituted for the playoffs before the 2010 season that made it more likely to extend the game but had the quickest score in league history on a pass by the least accurate passer in the NFL this season against its best pass defense.” (the Bleacher Report blog) Tim Tebow, the Bronco’s star QB, set records and threw a veritable forest of statistical anomalies in that game — Bleacher Report sums it up nicely: “Sunday, Tebow had one of the strangest individual statistical games of all time, going just 10-of-21 (.476) but amassing 3...

If your looking for a nice run, head to Craighead Forest Park. I wasn't really looking forward to my run until I arrived this morning. The temperature was a cool 59 and the sun beamed down between the trees and casted a beautiful bright yellow glow on the red, orange, golden yellow and green leaves. The street was filled with leaves that were slowly falling to the ground. Birds were singing and raindrops were falling off the huge leaf filled trees that were weighed down by yesterdays rainfall. It was breathtaking to be out there this morning. I encourage you to head out to your local park today and take in God's artwork. This morning gave me a great attitude and filled my heart with gratitude for God's wonderful creation.   Make it a great day!   Eric Burch

Calling on all home buyers in Northeast Arkansas. Are you ready to take advantage of these remarkable interest rates? The rates are historically low and NOW is the time to BUY!! If you are renting, the rent you are paying could be more than owning your own  home. If you are wanting a larger home, now is a time to consider moving up.  If you are a home buyer, please contact your local banker or mortgage company to see if you would qualify for a loan. If you do qualify, please contact a Realtor and lets give you the pride of home ownership.

Jonesboro is a great place to live, raise a family and play. As a Realtor you often get ask "What makes Jonesboro unique?"  To me it is "The People" Jonesboro is filled with people who truly give back to the community. It does not matter if it's the pack the bus with school supplies in August for  children or if it is to help send Christmas gifts to our WONDERFUL  service Men and Woman that are in service to this great Country. The folks in Jonesboro and Craighead County,  always amaze me at their eagerness to dig deep in their pockets for the community.  Jonesboro also has activities for you and your family to enjoy.

If you are thinking of buying a new home, let me give you some reasons that will make you really want to buy. First, the Mortgage interest rates are at a all time low. And that is what determines what your payment will be,  and what you can afford, hence, lower the rates, the lower the payment. By purchasing a home now, you will lock in a low interest rate that will benefit you for the term of your loan. Other reasons to buy now is the fact that houses are priced right due to the housing market down turn. Also, the selection of homes on the market today is great. You have more to choose from. So, if you are only in the thinking process as to buy or not, I would say to you, the buyer....its a buyers market right now!!! Great rates....plenty of homes to pick from....so what are you waitin...
