First Time Home Buyers Guide

Buying a home for the first time can be exciting.  With the help of a trained real estate agent at The Janet Jones Company, we hold your hand every step of the way. 

Get Prequalified

Many buyers choose to talk with a lender to get prequalified for a loan before they begin to look at properties.  A preapproval letter can put you in a stronger negotiating position because it tells the seller that financing will not be an issue.  In addition, a good faith estimate will give you an estimate of what your house payment and closing costs will be.  We encourage all of our buyers to be prequalified.

Get Educated

Your Janet Jones Company agent will help you become educated with our local real estate market.  We have extensive knowledge of communities, schools, churches and neighborhoods and all things Little Rock. 

Research Homes for Sale

Our powerful website allows you to search thru all available metro Little Rock homes the way you want to search: by address, neighborhood, zip code or lifestyle.  Once you decide on an area, you can narrow down by golf course homes, rooms with a view, gated communities, homes with pools and more.  In addition to price, bedrooms and baths, we show you details others sometimes hide:  price per square foot, days on the market, price reductions, and property tax rates.  We also link our listings to Google maps, where you can see a street view and a satellite map.  You can easily save your search and have the newest homes for sale in Little Rock emailed to you daily.
