Housing values etc - 4/14/2008
As a Past President of the North Central Board of Realtors and a resident of Mountain Home AR for over 38 years I can attest to the values in the Real Estate Market and the quality of life found here. The median price of a home was quoted as $190,000 in the article. The actual median price in the local MLS reporting for 2007 was $123,000. Thank You for the opportunity for input. The Mountain Home area is a GREAT place to live! John Howard, Century 21 LeMac Read More

A Beautiful Place to Live - 10/20/2007
Tucked away in the Ozark Hills between Norfork and Bull Shoals Lakes, Mountain Home is not an easy place to get to, but once you arrive you won't want to leave. Rolling green hills covered with hardwood forest, valley pastures sprinkled with cows, and deep blue lakes with water so clear that you can see the fish looking up at you are just a part of what Mountain Home has to offer. The White River and the Northfork River offer some of the best trout fishing in the country. Nearby national forests offer a tremendous variety of outdoor activities. The Buffalo National River is one of the last unspoiled stretches of pristine scenic river in the country. A lazy summer float will take you back in time.
The weather here is great. Yes, the summers are hot, but that heat doesn't last too long. The fall and spring are marvelous and the short winter season dusts us with snow just enough to make us remember that it is winter.
Brick homes on quiet tree lined streets are typical of Read More

retirement town - 6/7/2007
Mtn Home is a town of about 12K folks who are mostly retirees from California and Chicago.
Most people move here to enjoy the rivers, lakes, camping, fishing and hunting. There is a low crime rate
and it is not crowded. However, there is very little culture or social diversity. The restaurants and entertainment
available is very mainstream - chain restaurants, 2 movie theatres, etc. It does offer relatively mild climate
and affordable housing. The lakes are very beatutuiful and are controlled by the government - so they are
still very prinstine and Read More

Mountain Home - 3/16/2007
Mountain Home is one of the more unique places I have ever lived. A very large percentage of the population are transplants from Illinois looking for a warmer climate and a lower cost of living. The population is also heavily skewed toward the elderly, despite the fact that Mountain Home is not a "planned" retirement community like Horseshoe Bend or Bella Vista. Mountain Home is now actively seeking young families to move there in order to balance out the population.

Because of the elderly population and geographical isolation, Mountain Home has excellent health care for a town its size, including a 268-bed hospital. Water sports are the big activity of the area, including fishing, water skiing, scuba diving, etc. Many record-sized fish(too many to mention) have been caught in the lakes and rivers that surround Mountain Home.

Mountain Home is not exactly a shopper's paradise. It has the usual Wal-Mart and Home Depot, but not a mall within 2 hours. Things Read More
