Shawn Burns answered:
A master lock will accept only the one key that is designed to open it. On a Protecto lock, any key that fits into the lock will open the lock until the Protecto Key is used. Once the Protecto Key is inserted into the lock, then lock adjusts its internal mechanisms to only accept that key for future use. ... more

David Bolick answered:
Dixie...NO, ABSOLUTELY NO. Liens are as they say "Noticed up" by the attorney for the mortgagee and depending on the attorney, you may or may not have someone that covered all the bases possible. So you "could" purchase a property along "with" a lien and have to pay it as well. Most likely and in most cases, yes...all the liens are found and sent a notice and in those cases they will be erased in virtually all cases, HOWEVER, if anyone buys a auction property off the Courthouse Steps, you MUST obtain a "Title Committment" from a title company which will show all the liens of record. Then you can make sure all "those" liens have been noticed up before actually making your bid. It's a long and detailed process of work before you get to the point of actually "bidding". If you need any additional help, just let me know. David ... more

Wain Berry answered:
I think that would be a great idea and I think Im going to use it. I just had a deal fall apart because the appraiser used foreclosed properties as comps that were more than a mile away while there were several comps that could have been used in the same neighborhoods.

Bonnie Godwin answered:
for the Central Arkansas MLS area, total sales for April, May and June 2010 is 3543. This includes 79 mobile, 98 condos, 100 rural residences, 1 farm/ranch, 18 patio homes, 91 short sales, 367 foreclosures.
New homes sold totaled 354. Currently for sale, 8803, including 272 short sales, 369 foreclosures.

The central Arkansas MLS incompasses a large area, from Texarkana, to north of Little Rock, and to the east and west borders. Little Rock is divided by the Arkansas River. North Little Rock is a seperate city unto itself. Many investment opportunities are available, depending on your criteria as an investor.
Are you buying to hold, or to flip? Home appreciation in Little Rock is small. In some areas, there has been no appreciation in 5 years.

I moved to Little Rock three years ago from Austin, Texas. The real estate market is very different here, however, it does remind me of Austin, 20-25 years ago.

I am somewhat familiar with the Tampa area real estate market, which is unique in itself.
My name is Bonnie Godwin, and I am a broker iwth Crye-Leike, Realtors, REO Department. I would be happy to help anytime. 501-960-2788.

Hi there. I moved here 3 years ago from Austin, Tx. I am also a Realtor. As much as I know, I had a hard time finding the right website to help me.

Try this:
For rentals, the best website I found is Click on Classified, and then on rentals.
You can find my phone number and email on the website. I will be happy to speak with you about the area and answer any questions you might have.
