The Argenta City Club: What is it?

Located at 304 W Pershing Blvd in North Little Rock, all of the townsfolk you ask call it a private club. At some point, you’ll see vehicles gathered outside in the evening or a city worker cutting the grass.  

County tax records show the last taxes paid were in 1992.

In any event, many specifics aren’t available and the alleged list of members contains elected officials in and around town.

So then if it’s a private club, with city workers cutting grass, and elected officials allegedly gathering there, is it private?

If we need to make budget cuts in North Little Rock,  let’s cut the private use and give this building to the kids for another public place to hang after school is out just up the road,  a place where being loud and creative is ok.

Argenta  City Club: What it should be.

Foreclosure rates drop, homeowners still struggling

Foreclosure rates drop, homeowners still struggling

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- A new housing report out today indicates foreclosure rates in the Little Rock, North Little Rock and Conway areas are falling, despite the fact many are behind on their house payments.

These figures – coming from CoreLogic – show foreclosure rates in September 2011 at nearly one and a quarter percent.

Down from this same time last year, the rate is also lower than the national foreclosure rate. That rate still sits at almost three and a half percent.

However, the report also says homeowners are having trouble keeping up with their house payments.

The local mortgage delinquency rate is nearing five percent – more than it was at this time last year.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The Arkansas REALTORS® Association  announced that September home sales were 10.28 percent higher than September 2010 while the average price of a home in Arkansas increased by less than 1 percent.  For the quarter (July - September), home sales increased 16 percent with the average price of a home in Arkansas decreasing almost 4 percent.

"As the Arkansas REALTORS® Association has been predicting, Arkansas home sales continue to be quite strong," said Amy Glover Bryant, Director of Communications for the Association.  "In the third quarter, Arkansas REALTORS® sold a total of 6,671 homes versus 5,719 in the third quarter of 2010.  Average prices during that time period were $143,944 compared to the third quarter of 2010 when the average price of a home in Arkansas was $149,430.  Affordability and strong mortgage rates are certainly helping to drive this year's improved numbers.  We do exp

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- A new housing report out earlier this week indicates foreclosure rates in the Metro Area are on the rise. These figures – coming from Ccorelogic – show foreclosure rates up in may 2011 – over one and a quarter percent.

While that's up almost a quarter percent from this same time last year, that rate is actually lower than the national foreclosure rate.

That rate still sits at almost three and a half percent.

The report also says homeowners are doing a good job of keeping up with their house payments.

The local mortgage delinquency rate is over four and a half percent – that's down from what it was at this time last year.

Housing market sees positive numbers

(KTHV) -- Both the numbers of houses sold and the median price for sales grew in the Little Rock/North Little Rock market from June 2010 to June 2011.

But nationally, the numbers aren't as promising. The National Association of Realtors says home sales fell 0.8 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.77 million homes. Economists say that's far below the 6 million homes per year that must be sold to sustain a healthy housing market.

"It's just a beautiful place to live. Little Rock is a wonderful place. We have a lot of stuff to do. It keeps growing," says Joel Tvedten, owner of River Rock Realty.

Larry's Pizza looks to Hot Springs, Little Rock; Jimmy John's set for capital city

One location restaurant chain prepares to expand in Little Rock, while a national name is setting its sights on well-trafficked corner of the capital city, according to this week's Arkansas Business newspaper.

First, Larry's Pizza, the buffet-style pizza slinger that opened its first location in southwest Little Rock in 1992, is adding a second west Little Rock location, this one at 801 S. Bowman Road. The space once housed Dragon Palace Buffet at the Bowman Station project. The new Larry's will be about 7,500 square feet.

But the chain isn't stopping there.
