Little Rock Real Estate.
Prices Anyone can Afford!
We'll take a look at the different neighborhoods
and all the other
factors that make North Little Rock real estate so appealing. With the
price of a North Little Rock home ranging from $60,000 to $500,000,
almost anyone can find a house in their price range.
Levy - Pikeview - Rose City
This is where you'll find the
majority of houses toward the lower end of the price scale. These homes
tend to be a little older and smaller but there are some great bargains
to be found in these neighborhoods. The Pikeview and Levy areas also
have easy access to Burns Park and Emerald Park.
An older, quieter, neighborhood with lots of
shaded streets and sidewalks winding through this hilly area. You can
find a variety of home styles and sizes in this well established and
stable area. A lot of these homes are older with an average age of 37
years. I know that seems pretty old but these houses were so well built
they make excellent choices for remodeling.
- North Hills
When I think of North Little Rock real
estate, the Lakewood area is what comes to mind first. Originally built
around several man made lakes, this neighborhood has expanded to become
one of the largest in the city. It has a wide variety of homes starting
close to the median price of $124,000 and going up from there.
Old Mill, North Little Rock's most famous landmark can be found here.
Some beautiful water front homes are in the same area although they
don't come up for sale very often.
The North Hills area adjacent to Lakewood offers
larger and newer homes but still has the rolling hills and quiet
You'll also have the best access to the major
shopping and restaurant areas concentrated around McCain Boulevard.
Somewhat newer sub-division than Lakewood
with a slightly more modern look and feel. You give up some of the
coziness of the older areas but in return these are more modern homes.
Price range is similar to Lakewood.
Heritage Park - Overbrook - Shady Valley - Windsor
Valley - Chimney Rock
are the newest developments for North Little Rock homes. These areas
have been pretty hot over the last several years and you can still see
new construction in most of them. It seems the houses being built get
larger and nicer each year.
Chimney Rock would be at the top of
the price range for North Little Rock real estate. The homes here
represent the ultimate in upscale living.
So what is it like to live in North Little Rock? Let's go through the
Shopping - One of the largest
retail shopping areas in the state including McCain Mall and the
Lakewood Shopping Center.
- Home to Alltel Arena which hosts more big name acts than any other
venue in the state. Also home to the recently opened Dickey Stephens
Baseball Park where the Arkansas Travelers play.
You can also
enjoy a stroll down the North Shore Riverwalk to the Maritime Museum
featuring the USS Razorback submarine. The Arkansas Queen riverboat, a
replica of the stern wheel paddle boats that once cruised the Arkansas
river can be seen nearby. You could even book a cruise for yourself.
on the River Rail Trolley for a ride to the revitalized Historic
Downtown area that was once called Argenta. You'll find several cozy
restaurants and new boutiques to try out.
Recreation - What's the second largest city park in the
United States? North Little Rock's own Burns Park. I think it's amazing
that a city of 60,000 has a 1,575 acre park like this.
There is a
recently rebuilt youth baseball field that is now state of the art. A
nationally recognized tennis center with both indoor and outdoor
courts. First class softball complex. One of the largest and nicest
soccer complexes in the entire southern region. And two of the best 18
hole public golf courses in the state.
If you have younger
kids they'll love the playgrounds and there's even a small amusement
park with rides that's open during the summer.
are the walking and biking trails next to the river. These are part of
the Arkansas River Trail project which will eventually make a complete
loop along the Arkansas river on both sides.
I don't want to
forget about the dog park or equestrian trails if you like to recreate
with your animals. And the pavilions for all types of get togethers.
A BMX track and disc golf course have also been
added. Through in a
covered bridge and a log cabin and I think we have done it all.
If that still isn't enough, adjacent Emerald Park
has over a mile of
paved trails with spectacular scenic overlooks of the city and river.
One last point I wanted to make about North Little Rock
real estate is the average appreciation rate of over 17% last year. Add
that to a cost of living that is 27% below the national average. Sounds
to me like a North Little Rock home is a great investment.
