      Should I Build or Buy That Luxury Home in Asheville?

      There are many fine choices for Asheville NC luxury homes, however, many Asheville NC clients decide that building a luxury home suits their needs a little better. In this current real estate market you will be able to find some luxury homes that are under valued and a real bargain if you like the home and its location. New construction has usually always been more expensive than buying existing luxury homes on the market. Building material costs have gone up in price while labor costs have come down during this economic recession so building that luxury home may be attractive to new luxury home buyers.

      Building a luxury home in Asheville

      Get the builder involved with the project as you start looking for home sites as they can help you determine what piece of land, lot or home site is best suited for the home you desire. Set a budget early only as far as what you can afford for the total land home package as this makes it easier to then split costs between land, land development and construction costs. Failure to properly plan the new home will make building that luxury home much harder than if you had done the leg work up front and had all of the team members in place from the start.
