Asheville is a vibrant community with a diversity of cultures, art styles, green living, and a music scene that is beyond belief. There are many luxury home communities here to choose from as well as condos, townhomes or gated, lock and go type second home rental/investment property type developments.

      The Asheville Real Estate Market

      This is a buyers market and Asheville has an abundance of affordable homes in this area. Luxury home buyers will of course realize larger savings in this down market, so it may be recommended to buy as much home as you can afford to maximize the later return on your investment when you sell. You will want to choose an experienced realtor as your exclusive buyers agent to gain full knowledge of properties and to have someone working strictly for you in the home purchase transaction and never the seller. The Asheville real estate market has a strong track record in the past for great resale and this will probably once again be the case when the market has totally corrected itself.
