In this comprehensive training video, Timothy King, your broker at Realty Brokers of Arkansas, walks you through the process of using AR County data and Pages.org to access tax and court records. As a real estate agent, having access to this information is crucial for your business. Timothy will demonstrate how to navigate the AR County data website, search for properties in Pulaski County, and utilize the information found in tax records and court records.
As a real estate agent in Arkansas, it’s essential to have access to tax records and court records to better serve your clients. AR County data and Pages.org are valuable resources that provide this information for various counties in the state. The main focus of this training video is on how to use AR County data in Pulaski County, as it is one of the primary areas you may encounter in your business. However, Timothy also mentions other counties that you might come across, such as Faulkner and Lonoke.
Accessing AR County Data
To begin, you need to bookmark the AR County data website (arcountydata.com) on your laptop or computer. Timothy recommends setting up folders under your bookmarks to organize your real estate resources. You can create folders for your brokerage, specific tools like forum simplicity and caramels, as well as pages like Page.org.
Searching for Properties in Pulaski County
To demonstrate how AR County data works, Timothy conducts a search for a property on 100 Main Street in Pulaski County. He enters the property address in the search bar and retrieves information about the property, such as its subdivision, total acreage, and tax status. He notes that you can also find this information on the MLS, as it will often ask for the square footage of the property. You can either calculate it manually or use the county data website to do it for you.
Understanding Book Page and Deed
Timothy highlights an important feature on the AR County data website called “Book Page and Deed.” This feature provides additional information about a property’s transaction history. However, to access detailed records, you need to go to the county courts. Timothy mentions that you can find Pulaski County courthouse records on AOC Connect case info (caseinfo.arcourts.gov) and Pulaski County Clerk real estate records on Pulaski Clerk (pulaskiclerk.com). These resources allow you to delve deeper into a property’s history and legal documents.
Importance of Property Address and Additional Parameters
Addressing the importance of property addresses in real estate contracts, Timothy emphasizes that the address alone may not always provide the full picture. Sometimes, a property may have liens or mortgages that are associated with a different address nearby. Therefore, it’s crucial to include additional parameters like total acres, subdivision, section, township, and range in your listing agreement or real estate contract. This way, you ensure clarity and accuracy in the legal representation of the property.
Timothy briefly mentions Pages.org as another resource for accessing property information. Pages.org works similarly to AR County data but covers other parts of the state outside of Pulaski County. Timothy advises against venturing into areas where you lack local knowledge and experience, as it can lead to potential pitfalls and less effective representation for your clients. He recommends focusing on your local area and building relationships with people to generate leads and facilitate their real estate needs.
Accessing and utilizing AR County data and Pages.org for tax and court records is essential for real estate agents in Arkansas. By following the steps outlined in this training video, you can effectively research properties, understand their history, and provide accurate and comprehensive information to your clients. Remember to bookmark the necessary websites and organize your resources for easy access. Stay focused on your local market and build relationships to enhance your real estate business.
