Old Barns…

Old Barn North Bentonville AR -1Old Barns intrigue me. This particular one rests in a small valley in north Bentonville, Arkansas. I came across it taking a short cut road as I was heading to a listing prospect a few days ago.

I stopped briefly on the two lane country road to snap a picture out the car window. I noticed later that I had captured the swaying fence that ran along the perimeter.

Do you ever wonder about the history behind the rusty tin roof and weathered wood? We can only imagine the stories within.

The setting was gorgeous and had me wondering all day the stories behind this Old Barn…

Predicting the real estate market…

The question I hear most is: “How is the real estate market, and where do you see the increase in growth in NW Arkansas in the next 3 – 5 years? 

My answer is usually – let me look into my “Crystal Ball”…  (I say, somewhat jokingly.)

Predicting the real estate market in any area is created by supply and demand. Location, location, location will always bring the better investment. As a professional real estate agent, you study past and current trends, you have lived with the growth, you are aware of what the city and county planners have on the twenty year projections; however, you can never predict human nature. What a buyer emotionally feels when entering the house will determine the value of the property. When a property is priced within their budget, in a location that they desire, that buyer is willing to pay a fair market price based on knowledgable facts from their real estate agent.

The Northwest Arkansas area draws people from all over the world to work with vendors that supply WalMart. Every product you see in a WalMart store is represented by an office here in the NWA area. Some are quite large, like Proctor & Gamble and Hershey’s, while others may be only a small one person office. Many people relocate to this area everyday bringing their families for possibly a short 3 – 5 years here. It’s important to make the right financial choice, as well as manage the emotional feelings.

Living here for 25 years, I have experienced the explosion of growth all over NWA. The scramble for this area is to keep up with the transportation, schools and housing demands. We are in a state of constant change! We have become a desirable destination to live, work and play. All indicators show the NWA area will see continued growth over the next many years. So many opportunities are here. Each day brings news of companies moving or expanding here.
