     Welcome to the Real Estate Specialists web site.  Our firm lists and sells all types of properties in North Central Arkansas.  We are known in the industry as the listing broker for Fannie Mae, Homesteps, Bank of America, Premier Assets, SP Servicing, Fidelity, Citifinancial, Horizons, VRM, Reo-Central, Res.Net, Dispo Solutions, Stewart Title Services, Chase, and several other financial institutions.  We, also, assist buyers in finding the property that they are searching for.  We assist buyers in finding the right loan product that they are qualified for. 

     Here are some guidelines that I have found useful for potential buyers when purchasing a home:  Buyers should get loan approval before searching for a home.  This will give the buyer a competitive edge over other buyers that do not have their financing in order.  Banks always ask for two years tax returns, three months bank statements, one month of payroll stubs, all debts owed with account name and address, account number, amount owed, monthly amount due, addresses of past two years, landlords address and phone number, if self-employed, a profit and loss for the past 12 months, if divorced, divorce decree, if paying child support, copy of child support order, if you filed bankruptcy, a copy of the discharge papers is requested by the lender.   If you have your documentation upfront, this will speed your loan process up.

     If you are a buyer that wants to purchase a foreclosure property, here are some guidelines that are standard in the industry.  Before submitting an offer, the financial institution requires proof of funds for cash sale or a letter of loan approval from your bank.  The REO property usually sells as is, no repairs, no termite letter of clearance, no survey, no disclosures, no repairs, but you have the right to an inspection, if you miss the close date due to problems in your loan there is usually a per diem charge of $100.00 per day for every day that is past the closing date, this is only if the buyer is at fault, when you make your offer, the seller will counter on new contracts with addendums that change your state contract.  Always read the fine print on these addendums.    The seller's agent is not trying to fraud you, but if you are 18 or over, it is assumed that you know to get legal advice before signing any legal document that you do not understand.

     Thank you for visiting our site and we hope to hear from  you soon about any of our featured properties. If you are a real estate agent and want to preview any of my properties, please feel free to call me at 870-698-2026. If you have a buyer that may be interested, please be sure to have proof of funds letter for loan or cash before presenting offers. If the property is a Bank of America REO home, you have to have loan approval from Bank of America. Call me for the phone number.
