Bella Vista Bike Trails

What a beautiful addition to Bella Vista : 'The Back 40' bike trails.  I have already received dozens of call from people wanting to build on or own vacant lots that are bordering or near the Bella Vista Bike Trails.

If you have interest in seeing about purchasing a vacant lot near the Bella Vista Bike Trails then please let me know.  I would be happy to research and call the owners, or see about any listings that I currently have that would match.

New highway could impact your Bella Vista property

Bella Vista, AR:  A new highway bypass has been under construction for years around the entire western section of Bella Vista, Arkansas.  This section is located west of Highway 49 (71), and includes the far west area known as The Highlands.  

In my experience, it has been more difficult to sell a lot located in The Highlands.  Out of our 7000 lot transactions, I would say that less than 5% have been for land located in The Highlands area.  School district and access to Bentonville & Rogers have been the main reason people have preferred other areas.  I feel that changing.

Now, with this new highway nearing completion, I feel that the Highlands area will come into demand for vacant Bella Vista lots.  The highway will tie into key areas of Bella Vista, granting real access to once cut off areas.  

If you own one of the lots out in the Highlands, or even on the west side of Hwy. 71, and are interested in listing your Bella Vista land for sale, then contact me at 

Getting to know Bella Vista subdivisions

Bella Vista uses a unique number code to identify each subdivision.  If you currently own property here then you may have noticed this number code on your POA statements over the years.

Each number listed on your lot description represents either the lot, block, or this subdivision number.  Usually, the first number or set of digits represents the subdivision, such as 006-xxxxxxxx   or 028-xxxxxxxx  etc.

Feel free to contact me regarding your lot if you are wondering if it in an area that is desirable in this market.  Mike Carey, call or text : 479-644-4109

If you are unsure of which lot you own but you have the POA statement that you receive for your dues, then feel free to use this reference sheet to identify the lot.  Look at the first digits on your POA card or invoice for dues and match it with the corresponding subdivision below.

It is a bit difficult to read, so click on it and zoom in.  Click the picture of this sheet I scanned in and it should open in a new browser tab, then click it again in that tab to zoom in.  Also, you can hold the control key on your keyboard and press the + or - on your keyboard to zoom in and out.  Or, if this sheet appears large enough in your browser, use the scroll bars at side and bottom to manipulate.  Sorry, it's a bit wonky but it's the best I could scan in.

Need a builder for your Bella Vista new house?

Bella Vista Builders

I work with three builders in-house and a handful of builders outside our company that I trust.  I have seen their work, their diligence, and their follow up on the warranty over the sixteen years that I've been doing this, and that is how I judge their dependability.

Usually we try to identify what you want in the house, in the land, and in the neighborhood first.  I can come up with some possible lot selections if you do not already own one, or we can sell your current lot and find a more desirable area for you.

Many changes have happened in the Bella Vista building market, including having sewer installed in many new areas, roads paved, highway access being introduced to some new areas, etc.  It's paramount that you are satisfied with the area first, then the lot, then the house.

Access to roads, restaurants, schools, places of work and the like are key factors when considering building new construction in Bella Vista.  We have three school districts here, multiple access points, and some pockets of newly paved and/or sewer-installed pockets.

There are 311 subdivisions spread out across almost 60 square miles, and comprised of almost 40,000 lots.  So, choosing a preferred location should be fun.

Contact me to learn more or get referred to one of the builders that I trust.

Bella Vista bypass highway coming

Bella Vista bypass

Bella Vista's  beautiful Highlands area
So by now I feel that everybody has heard about the upcoming bypass highway. Construction has been underway for quite some time planning was underway for even longer. But finally things look like they're coming toward success.

I really feel that this impacts a lot of us who are lots in the highlands area of Bellavista especially those on the southern side. I think with this new access it'll make lots more desirable in that area.

I know that in my 15 years of experience one of the major drawbacks of owning land on the western side of Bella Vista is a lack of access. This new bypass hopefully will solve that problem. Not only that but I think that the congestion is so terribly bad now at 8 AM and 5 PM that this highway is going to be A blessing for the area.

This is great news for those lot owners who have had their property for twenty or thirty years and have not either used it or been able to sell it.  And for those already living in the Highlands, who have to drive so far and long distances for simple groceries or medical care.  Areas that were for years considered segmented off from the rest of civilization will now come into play, and I am excited about getting these wonderful lots exposed to the market.  So many lots down in the southern parts of the Highlands are extremely nice, including hundreds and hundreds of flat lots - an unusual specimen for Bella Vista.

I base this list on what my clients generally purchase and my own personal opinion of what the market is demanding for Bella Vista land at this point in time.  Lately, I am getting a lot of requests for sewer lots and also lots located next to existing homeowners.  Some of these lots may not appear on the MLS but I have sales access to them all.

1.  (Sold) Akerman Lane, lot 12 block 7 Allendale subdivision.

Bella Vista sewer lot for sale $7900 contact Mike Carey 479 644 4109
This lot is on sewer and is a larger triangle shaped lot on a cul-de-sac that looks out over the valley backing up to County Road 40 (McNelly Rd., also spelled McNielly or McNeilly on some maps.).  There is one very large house already on this small lane and a new construction house in process next door to this lot.  It is sloped gradually for a walk-out and will have extremely nice views of the meadow below.  I expect the house that eventually is built on this lot to be around 2500 to 3000 square feet and feature a tall deck overlooking this wooded scenery.  Because it is on sewer, the owner has much more freedom in choosing the placement of the home, as well as what trees to leave standing, as opposed to lots that require a septic system that usually requires completely shaving the lot of trees to accommodate the back yard septic system.  Another nice perk for sewer lots is that you do not have to cram the house right up to street and endure a short driveway because there is no septic system pushing your lot square footage.  This lot is on the bus routes for Bentonville/Bella Vista schools.  There are a dozen or so new construction homes nearby.  $7900.

2. (Sold) Eltisey Lane, Lot 3 block 1 Headley Subdivision

This lot is also on sewer and offer a more level front and back yard.  It does slope slightly, by Bella Vista standards anyway.  There are several newer homes in the subdivision and it has the quite uncommon characteristic of being almost a perfect rectangle-- a rarity in Bella Vista.  So, the owner can enjoy a traditional front and back yard, all completely free from the hassle of a septic system.  This lot backs up to common ground green-space.  It is located at the end of a short lane and is in Bentonville schools and on the bus route.  To view this lot and the one above, take Euston to Witherby to Allendale and go to the end; both lots are off of Allendale and this entire Allendale subdivision is on sewer!
