Asheville Homes and LAND!- The Keep In Touch Blog




As a Land Specialist, I get to walk incredible acreages.-some land for sale by owner-some listed on the MLS. I never cease to be thrilled when I get "that certain feeling" within seconds of stepping on LAND that resonates with me. I have found that my clients feel the same way. It is funny how that happens. Within literally seconds, they/we simply "know". And when we "know" it's the "RIGHT ONE"'s like finding treasure .....

The  choices and variety of land/ acreage here in the Greater Asheville area (Buncombe, Madison, Henderson, Transylvania and Yancey County) has always attracted people area. I've been reading a novel set in 18th century North Carolina that makes it clear that even in 1776 people braved ocean waves and mountain passages just to be here! YES... It is like finding .

In the past, even 20 years ago, it was not too difficult for land lovers to secure significant tracts of land here in the Appalachians, whether for investment or for conservation purposes. 

However, today locating large acreages can be challenging.There only are  13  large (over 400 acre and commonly known to be available) tracts within 50 or so miles of Asheville, N.C. (December, 2009)

Whether the land is old family land, as much of the above it, and is used for farming, or  forest land with awesome views, waterfalls, streams, the  unique quality makes it an excellent choice for conservation real estate investors; perhaps even a Preserve .

  It seems that unique mountain acreage always has and always will attract treasure seekers. IF you are one such person, I can help.

jane Anne -- you can certainly find homebuyers the perfect piece of land.. I am so impressed with your knowledge of eco-friendly land and the potential to make it into a wonderful home and retreat.

janeAnne, I can imagine the feeling of when the land just resonates with's the one thing we will surely run out of and pieces of land here get smaller and smaller.  I hope people buy in your lovely area while they can.
