As we enter the 2nd quarter, let’s look back at the construction trends predicted for 2016. One of the trends predicted is that homebuyers will seek out simple, walkable communities.

Northwest Arkansas, Benchmark Group’s home, is the perfect example of this trend. Many of our local towns are centered around areas that offer shopping, restaurants and entertainment within walking distance of neighborhoods. Farmers Markets, stocked with fresh, local produce and products, are a staple of these communities. Benchmark Group has had the honor of assisting the City of Rogers with creating the new Rogers Farmers Market set to open April 30th.
