Should I buy land or an existing home?
So now the question arises for many buyers of homes and land here in the Asheville NC area. Do I build a new home or buy an existing home in the Asheville area? We tell clients the short answer and that is that in this current real estate environment it might be cheaper to buy an existing home than to build because while home prices have gone down in the area over the last two years building material prices have gone up due to many factors. We also explain to buyers that the only way to truly get that dream home may be by finding that perfect land and then building your home. Another advantage of building a new home is that you can build green and incorporate many energy efficiency or eco items into the home.
