      Buyers Guide to Asheville Land

      Let us be your guide to Asheville land here in the Blue Ridge Mountains in and around the Asheville NC area. Many people seeking mountain land rush out to buy land without understanding many key things or without working with an experienced Realtor or real estate broker. We are land developers, licensed building contractors, certified green home builders and of course some of the most experienced Realtors and brokers that this area has to offer. Let us be your guide to Asheville land and make that land buying and home building process a pleasure here in these beautiful mountains.

      We guide clients buying Asheville land

      If our firm is working with a client buying land we will first want to understand the intent for the land. Is your sole purpose for buying land to build a custom home? The Asheville area has implemented new steep slope rules and regulations over the last several years and it may be that building that dream home exactly where you want it will be impossible. Is the land you are purchasing actually zoned for residential? If so, what type of density is it zoned for? Will the land require roads and underground utilizes? The development costs on a piece of land could cost more than the home you are intending to build depending on many considerations like power, water, septic, sewer, roads and other improvements like retaining walls or engineered soil.

      Asheville land developers, builders and Realtors

      Once again, most buyers of mountain land do not know what they do not know and therefore should work with an experienced Realtor to stay out of trouble. There are also good lots and land parcels in areas versus not so good lots. We once met with a client that had purchased a rather expensive lot in a luxury gated community and he was ecstatic that he had saved $100K on his lot. We heard his heart drop as we indicated to him the lot across the street from his was a better view lot and was cheaper. We enjoy working with clients that are buying land for Mountain View homes here in the Asheville area.
