      Asheville Custom Homes and Home Buyer Choices

      When many people move to the Asheville NC area they decide to hire an architect that will design their very own special and one of a kind custom home. Custom homes and custom home builders are readily available here in the Asheville North Carolina area as quality homes seem to fit the criteria of what most folks want when they move to these beautiful mountains. As custom luxury home realtors and licensed builders we try to educate our clients on what makes a custom home really custom. Step one of building a custom home is always to get your builder involved when looking for that perfect new home site, lot, or piece of land.

      Asheville home buyers like custom

      There are many things that must be considered when building custom homes on mountain or hill side lots. Issues like retaining walls and engineered foundations can become expensive for the home buyer that is UN informed about the build out requirements of mountain property. Grading costs and site development can get costly if rock has to be blasted or removed from the site and backfill is required. Do not make the mistake of many when building by not getting your builder and architect involved when you first start looking at properties you are considering.
