If you’re looking for some cool real estate deals during this hot summer, you don’t have to look any further than Van Buren, Arkansas. With around 23,000 residents, this is a good city for folks who want an easy-going lifestyle but also appreciate access to all the bigger-city amenities in Fort Smith just five miles away.
Here are some Van Buren homes currently for sale on the Multiple Listing Service.
This two-bedroom, two-bath mobile home has a fishing creek behind it and also a nice storage building. It’s in a senior community, so you must be 55 or older. Lot rent is just $145 per month, and the asking price of the home is $15,000.
This one’s a fixer-upper, but if you have a little money to invest, it could be one sweet deal for only $25,000. The one-bedroom, one-bath home was built in 1947 and is being sold “as is.” But when you look at it, you can really see the potential. Nick and I especially like the design of the covered front porch.
This mobile home is neat and ready to live in for only $25,000. It has 1,000 square feet of space, three bedrooms and two baths, both of which have been completely remodeled. There’s a carport for one car and all the standard appliances are in the kitchen. It’s in Flat Rock Village, so buyers must be approved by management.
Here’s another great investment-property deal. This house was built in 1947 and has a second house on the property that can be a rental or used for guests. Both houses have a single bedroom and bathroom. The $45,000 price tag isn’t much when you consider what you’re getting for it.
Finally, this 1,000-sqare-foot frame home, actually just outside Van Buren, has three bedrooms and a single bath. A new roof was installed in 2008, and the living room was recently painted. There’s a gas heating stove in the living room and a huge master bedroom with a walk-in closet. Asking price is only $52,000.
