We're glad you asked! When you join a Community Interest list at Buffington Homes, it simply lets us know you're interested in building in one of our upcoming communities. Then, when we're ready to launch that community, you'll receive priority when it comes to selecting a homesite.

This was formerly called our VIP List, and we've simply freshened up the name to be more descriptive. (Although, we still treat everyone like VIPs around here.) Before we dive into the details and benefits of joining a Community Interest list, let's talk about why we created these lists in the first place!




Buffington Homes has been an award-winning home builder in Northwest Arkansas for more than 40 years, and we've been blown away by the exponential growth that has occurred since we began. Our region doubled in population between 1990 and 2010 alone, bringing the headcount to more than 500,000 people. That number continues to grow. Projections by the Arkansas Economic Development Institute are predicting nearly 1 million residents living in Benton and Washington counties within the next 25 years.


Even with the pandemic and subsequent economic downturn, regional planners say these events won't significantly impact the number of people moving to the area. Forecasts are based on years of historical data and trends that have included recessions and other events that impact the rate of growth. People love Northwest Arkansas, and more are wanting to call it home.




Located within the lush rolling hills of the Ozarks, Northwest Arkansas is beautiful. There's also a thriving business climate driven by the three Fortune 500 companies headquartered here. Walmart, Tyson Foods, and JB Hunt, as well as nearly 1,300 suppliers and vendors doing business with these companies, have created a large movement to the area.


The region offers world-class amenities, including the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the Momentary, the Walmart AMP, and the Razorback Regional Greenway bike trail that links all major towns within the area. We have nationally-ranked mountain bike trails, award-winning cuisine, and the state's best-ranked schools. Add to that, Northwest Arkansas is an affordable place to live with a per capita income that's 14% higher than the national average. It's no wonder so many people want to move here. The result...an extremely competitive environment for finding, building, and buying homes.




At Buffington, we pride ourselves on building homes that offer affordable luxury in the most desirable locations across Northwest Arkansas. Because of this, our homesites sell incredibly fast. In an effort to give priority to families who are interested and ready to build with us, we created 'Interest Lists' for each of our communities.


Before we launch a community or build a new phase, we release details to those who have signed up on our Community Interest list before sharing information publicly. So, if you're on the list, you get an early & exclusive look at the number of homesites available, which floorplans are being offered, and the pricing details. That's just the beginning.



Since purchasing a homesite is on a first-come, first-served basis, having the ability to select a homesite before they're released to the public is perhaps one of the biggest benefits of joining. You can enjoy choosing your homesite without the hassle of bidding wars or multiple offers competing for the same property.


You also get to pick from a wider selection of exterior design options. Why? In an effort to keep the streetscapes visually appealing in our communities, we won't repeat the same exterior colors and elevation on either side of a home or directly across the street. That means if you have your heart set on a white brick exterior, the earlier you make your selection, the better your chance of having exactly what you want. 


And, did we mention introductory pricing? This is another huge benefit to joining the list and selecting your homesite early. You get access to special pricing when you purchase within our grand opening timeframe.


There's no cost to join the list, and there is no penalty if you decide not to buy. So, it's truly a smart move if you're interested in building a home with us.




Joining a Community Interest list is simple. All you need to do is select the community you're interested in and sign up online. Feel free to join more than one list if you're not exactly sure which community you'd like to choose. We're currently compiling lists for these locations:

·       Blossom Woods in Rogers

·       Evening Star in Bentonville

·       Opal Park in Bentonville

·       Cottages at the Park in Springdale

Once you're on the list, you'll begin to receive emails updating you on our progress and details for that particular community. So, you'll want to be sure and check all email updates from us.


When you consider our Community Interest lists and all of their benefits, paired with our in-house design studio and simple build process, it's easy to choose Buffington for your next home. We'd be honored to help you build a life you'll love here in Northwest Arkansas!
