      Asheville Golf Home Communities

      Asheville golf communities do exist for the avid golfer that enjoys world class golf and being able to live in a world class golf home community. Golf communities like the Cliffs at Walnut Cove and Biltmore Forest are two great communities that immediately come to mind when we discuss luxury homes and one of a kind country clubs here in the Asheville NC area. Biltmore Forest is one of the oldest and most historic communities here in the Asheville area and offers a world class member owned Country Club within the community and dates back to the early 1900s when George Vanderbilts widow developed this fine neighborhood that backs up to the Biltmore Estate.

      Golfers will not be disappointed by the world class Donald Ross designed golf course that the Biltmore Forest Country Club offers to its members. Golf is special on the majestic grounds of the Asheville area as the Blue Ridge Mountains serve as the canvas back drop and you have glimpses of what it was like when famous Presidents and captains of industry played on these same courses almost one hundred years ago. Biltmore Forest is rich in history and architecture and offers some of the most beautiful and historic luxury homes available in the Asheville area.

      Buying Luxury Homes in Asheville

      Luxury homes in the Asheville NC area are available in some really great luxury home communities these days. Luxury homes in Asheville cost more so you may want to be working with a Realtor that specializes in the luxury home market to avoid many pitfalls and perhaps pay too much for that luxury home. We are more than just luxury home Realtors here at Green Mountain Realty. We are also developers and luxury home builders here in the greater Asheville area. As builders of fine custom and luxury homes we understand many things that will help you choose the right luxury home and then also help you get that home for the best possible price.

      Quality luxury homes and how you know?

      It all starts with determining if the home is a quality built luxury home. Just because a home cost is well over a million dollars does not automatically qualify it as a well built and high quality luxury home. Homes are built to the county building code in all states and the building code only insures your vital safety in most cases and has absolutely nothing to do with quality aspects of a home. We help clients determine if that luxury home they are interested in buying is really a high quality home and worth the money they will pay for that home. We also educate our clients on things to pay close attention to when looking at luxury homes.

There are many tools that we have at our disposal to determine the homes value, how much equity the existing home owner has in the home, tax valuation and the motivation level of the seller.
