      Asheville Homes, Land and Real Estate

      There are many things that you should consider when buying homes, land, condos, green homes, eco friendly homes, foreclosures, luxury homes, mountain view homes, golf community, gated community or luxury type real estate here in the Asheville North Carolina area. Asheville is a great place that many people seek to relocate to for reasons that vary from its mild seasonal climate to the diversity the community offers for creative types such as artists, writers or crafts people. Home prices in the Asheville NC area are usually below the national average and cost of living is also below the norm. These facts have always struck me as odd since Asheville continues to get rated as a top place to live or retire.

      Asheville homes, styles and types

      Asheville offers homes, land and real estate for just about everyones tastes. Post and beam or timber frame style homes are common in these mountains and are the type of home many choose that are looking to buy in this area.

The area is home to the Western North Carolina Green Building Council that oversees local green home building construction projects. Tax rates vary from being located within the city of Asheville to being further out so please do your homework when looking at various homes and properties.

      Asheville land, locations and real estate improvements

      When purchasing land in the Asheville area you may want to be working with an experienced realtor that understands the issues that home building requires. Do not think that a piece of land is perfect just because it has a great view of the mountains and downtown Asheville. Consider things like site improvements such as underground utilities. If the land does not already have roads and underground utilities run to where the home will be located you may be in for some costly additions prior to building that dream home. If you are personally developing the land make sure you have a thorough understanding of zoning and planning to assure that your new home will comply with city or county ordinances. Developing real estate and building your dream home can be one of your lifes biggest achievements. Call Green Mountain Realty at 828.215.9064 for homes, land and real estate in Asheville.
