I believe the housing market to be stable at this time in Marion, AR. Are you looking to buy or sell. If you are looking to sell, yes the prices are lower than they were a few years ago but you can still get a good value for your property. If you are looking to buy a house for a steal, that would depend on the type property. You can get a foreclosed or bank owned property from time to time at a good price. Please email me at email@example.com if you have additional points that you want covered. I will gladly do a current market analysis for you if you are looking at a specific property and not working with another agent.
Sunday is the best for my area in Washington, DC. 1-4 PM is generally the best time. That's when people are out looking specifically to find a place.
That being said, Saturday can be a great day to pick up people who aren't shopping around.
Also, working some holidays can be great like Easter etc. Families are in town and might like looking at houses together. While other agents might not hold it open for that reason, having yours open can get special exposure.
While I am not in your area, my suggestion would be to find a local realtor and find out who they use for mortgages. Contact the mortgage loan officer to see exactly where you stand credit wise. Again I am not certain of your area but there may be programs available to assist with no down payment. I still suggest finding a local loan officer in your area, let that be your first step then move on from there. Hope that helps.... more
