I mad an offer on some acreage in Hot Springs. 3.25 acres on a ridge with a good view. 4300 an acre. I know I should have asked this before I bought but I think its a good buy. Is that a fair price for good land with a good view in a solid sub that has nice homes? Its about 5 miles from down town HS in between the village and HS. I lived near there before and it was great. I am told that property is making a come back. Any info would help.

I don't know what is a fair price in that area but I do know that is in a prime area, as you well know.

We live in Florida now and its not bad, but it has its draw backs, oppressive heat in summer, rain every day in summer, winter is great but people up the wazoo and more coming. [this is a double edged sword. It makes it difficult but it also makes for good selling of your property.] That said we love Arkansas. Hot Springs is the place we like most. Eureka Springs is too much of a tourist town that drys up in winter and is wall to wall people in summer. Hot Springs has things all year round. Festivals in summer and horse racing in winter. Winter is light and it runs from Jan, to about the end of Feb or first week of March and its getting warm. I love the hills and trees. Its just a great place. It reminds me of my up north Michigan home town minus the 5 feet of snow and winters that go from Oct to May.

We stayed at the Arlington and had the best catfish dinners of our lives in HS. Too bad it is so hot in the summer.

I don't know if it is a good deal, but I am sure you will be happy once you get something built on your new property. Congrats and enjoy.

Thanks, it may be a while. The economy is not back yet and we may wait a few years till its close to retirement. But we lived there for a couple of years and loved it. Its a great place to live and retire.

there was a time when I wanted to consider Hot Springs but, at that time hubby wanted nothing to do with AR, Now, here we are, NWA, and absolutely have never regretted it for a minute.

I had done a lot of research in many places of the United States for retirement relocation.

If everything you posted is accurate, that is a good DEAL for ANYWHERE in the US ( IMHO )

Teddy, we did the same: we researched and we visited several places. The places we actually visited were So Carolina, several places in NV, NM, OK and Tenn. We settled first, on NM. After we decided to get closer to the kids and knew we had made a mistake moving to NM, we checked out both, ok, again and here. This was the best fit for what we wanted. Now, it isn't just us here: our daughter and son in law have moved to NWA, our younger granddaughter never left, after she graduated and the older granddaughter, with her hubby and 2 kids moved here just a few months ago.
