Northwest Arkansas has finally fallen prey to national real estate trends. In the 4th quarter of 2006 Fayetteville's prices, for example, fell 14%, but in Benton County prices continued rising. But those prices fell in the first quarter of 2007 for the first time in several years. With an oversupply of homes on the market, especially over $200K, it is definitely a buyer's market. This is actually a very good time to purchase a home, since even with recent up-ticks in interest rates, prices have moderated and there are some bargains to be had.To view a full analysis of the first quarter of 2007, read my blog at http://nwarealestateblog.blogspot.com.

The housing market in NW Arkansas has slowed some, following national trends as well as experiencing a seasonal slowdown (there are always fewer homes sold in the winter--and we've had a lot of cold weather lately--until the past week, that is).In mid-February the 4th Quarter 2006 Skyline report was released with some good news as well as less-good news (depending on whether you live in Benton or Washington County). The good news for Benton County, according to Kathy Deck, Interim Director for the Center for Business and Economic Research at the U of A, is that building permits have "fallen off a cliff", that is decreased significantly. That was something that had to happen, given the oversupply of homes in Benton County, especially in the higher price ranges. There is still an oversupp...
