The writeup;

The more than 30 fishing tournaments hosted annually in the Pine Bluff region have earned it the nickname “Bass Capital of the World.” But the real catches here are the homes, with the median listing price just below $95,000. Compare that to the Arkansas capital of Little Rock, less than an hour’s drive north, where the median home price is $170,000.

On the downside, Pine Bluff has the highest crime rate on our list. According to the FBI, Pine Bluff had a rate of 909 serious crimes per 100,000 residents in 2016, compared to the national rate of 386.

While Pine Bluff comes with small-city home values, it can also boast some big-city features. The largest airport in Arkansas, the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport, is a 40-minute drive from downtown.

For fun, head to the Arkansas Railroad Museum, where you’ll find the last steam locomotive built by St. Louis Southwestern Railway (known as SSW).

Hey. Another reason to Love Little Rock. It’s only 40 minutes from Pine Bluff. What is it that realtors say about real estate prices? Location, location, location?
