Driving Factors For Arkansas Real Estate Market


Arkansas has a below-market price-to-rent ratio and it’s actually cheaper to own than rent. Additionally, while most states are seeing appreciation push buyers out of the market, Arkansas still remains much more approachable to invest.

The Future Is Rental Properties

While Arkansas is relatively affordable, prices are forecasted to increase in the coming years. Therefore, investors are beginning to flock to “buy and hold” investment opportunities over quicker flip projects.

Improving Economy

In the wake of the COVID pandemic, Arkansas’ economy has steadily improved, in part, because of promising job growth across industries. As a result, local demand for housing should continue to increase over the coming weeks and months.

EquityMax Insight

According to Attom Data Solutions’ second-quarter 2021 U.S. Home Sales Report, “the typical single-family home and condo sale across the United States during the second quarter of 2021 generated a profit of $94,500. That was up from $90,000 in the first quarter of 2021 and $60,572 in the second quarter of 2020.” Growing and appealing profit margins for investors make Arkansas a “go-to” state for investors looking to buy distressed properties, fix them, and sell them within 12 months. However, long-term rental properties also present a profitable scenario with ever-growing demand in a sector that was once overshadowed by traditional home buying. Simply put, low inventory has stopped many would-be buyers from achieving ownership and has forced them to continue renting their homes.
