New Construction for Northwest Arkansas Real Estate

northwest Arkansas real estate construction on the rise

New construction is on the rise in Northwest Arkansas Real Estate ! While home sales have dropped slightly for existing properties in the beautiful Northwest Arkansas area, new home construction is booming. Areas such as Fayetteville, Bentonville, Bella Vista and Rogers have all seen drastic increases in the development of new housing communities, new custom built homes for sale in Fayetteville AR, and numerous other new construction projects are underway.


New development is always a bonus for communities and home owners as well as perspective home buyers. Everyone wins when new property is developed. Communities are enriched with more modern and attractive properties that in turn bring in new residents to their community. Existing home owners property values almost always increase with the new additions of homes and more modern architectural buildings. And perspective home buyers are blessed with a broader range of homes to search for in Arkansas.


This recent boom in construction has been in the process for the last year or so and is reflected in the following statistics I received earlier in the month. I like to stay informed about all the new development and the housing market trends in Northwest Arkansas Real Estate. After all, it is my job! 😉 Before I go on to ramble off a bunch of numbers let me say this. With the economy rebuilding, no matter how slow a process that may be, the proof takes form in the construction of new homes and new commercial properties for sale in NWA. Also, statistics are showing Foreclosures in Northwest Arkansas Real Estate have slowed down and new construction is taking it’s rankings. Great news!!
