Southwest Missouri continues to have a hot real estate market, and it’s not just in Springfield. Several of the surrounding communities have outstanding neighborhoods for raising a family, retiring, and enjoying life in general.

Read our guide to some of the hottest neighborhoods to buy a home near Springfield, Missouri.

1. Autumn Brook & Hoffman Hills in Willard

Two neighborhoods come to mind with homes for sale in Willard. Autumn Brook has seen some action as of late. These homes were generally built between 2015 and 2020 on two streets in Willard, Becky Street and Wright Street. These gorgeous three-bed, two-bath homes are perfect for a new family who wants to live away from the big city.

For brand-new construction, Hoffman Hills is available. There are at least two dozen homes being built for this subdivision, and they follow one of three floorplans. Each plan has a two-car garage and anywhere from 1,500 to 2,133 square feet. If you want a home that’s never been lived in before, this is a good spot on Willard’s southeast side with quick access to Highway 160 if you’re heading to Springfield.

2. Fremont Hills in Between Ozark & Nixa

Fremont Hills has always been a fashionable place to live, ever since it started in the late 1960s. If you love luxury living and golf, Fremont Hills is a city unto itself but also an exclusive neighborhood that continues to be popular. The homes here are first-rate and show pride of ownership. The 18-hole golf course and country club give you daily activities.

3. Deerfield Park & Theran Place in Rogersville

Rogersville is a growing town, and there is new construction all over the city. Deerfield Park has many newer homes, less than 20 years old, with outstanding open floor plans and homes with three to five bedrooms.


Theran Place has homes no older than 2022. It offers new construction with open floor plans, three to four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and garages for two to three vehicles. Every home comes with an extended home warranty offered by the builder.

4. Eagle Springs & Creek Bridge in Ozark

Eagle Springs is a community concept with newly built homes, some of which have up to five bedrooms and range from 1,540 to 3,100 square feet. Some units have basements for extra storage rooms, a play room, bar, or game room for family activities. 

Creek Bridge is nestled among a thriving part of Ozark, one exit north of the downtown area near Highway 65. You’ll have easy access to Springfield or Ozark without having to hear the highway noise. Your beautiful, fenced-in property is perfect for an outdoor dog, kicking a soccer ball, tossing a softball, and hanging out on a warm, sunny day.

6. Estates at Majestic Pointe, River Bluff Estates & Stillwood in Branson

The Estates at Majestic Pointe is a gated community with Table Rock Lake to the west and the heart of Branson to the east. Most listings are no more than two years old, and some units are fully furnished and ready to serve as your residence or as a vacation home. Many units offer stunning views of the lake and are within walking distance of a fishing spot or boat launch.

River Bluff Estates offers homes around 20 years old with traditional, ranch-style construction. You’ll have an energy-efficient brick and stone exterior, a spacious lot, solid wood floors, and granite countertops. These hills sing in the fall time when the leaves change.

Stillwood is a gated condo community a few miles north of Branson Landing and near Branson Hills Golf Club and the surrounding shopping area. The homeowner’s association handles the upkeep of the exterior structure of each condo. You’ll get a brick exterior, hardwood floors, and a back patio with scenic views to go along with the security and serenity of a gated community.
