Rent to Own Homes in Arkansas

When Arkansas achieved statehood in 1836, it was a thriving plantation state, but its economy took a downturn after the Civil War and the abolishment of slavery. During the 20th century, it took local groups decades of hard work to bolster the state's financial situation. Nicknames played an important role in the efforts to revive Arkansas. Dubbing it the "Wonder State" in 1923 was an attempt to alter its image as a poor, underdeveloped area. Calling it the "Land of Opportunity" in the early '40s was meant to attract new residents and keep people from moving to other states to look for work. In the '80s, to attract tourists, Arkansas switched to the "Natural State," referring to its natural resources and beauty.

Though these nicknames were developed as marketing tactics, they all ring true in the 21st century. Arkansas is definitely a "wonder" state. It can produce almost every type of crop that's grown in the U.S. It is also a land of opportunity, thanks to the state's thriving industries, including agriculture, transportation and logistics, aerospace and defense, and forestry. Walmart, the number one company on the Fortune 500 list, and seven other major corporations are located in Arkansas. Finally, there's no arguing that the state's natural beauty is a sight to behold. More than 32 million annual visitors come to enjoy its splendor, and so should you. When you like what you see, you can make this magnificent state your home by buying one of the affordable rent-to-own homes in Arkansas.
