Asheville (North) Real Estate Report - "Bargains" (??)

Asheville Mountain Homes and LAND Report.Asheville Welcome HOME

Buyers looking for homes on the GREEN-side in North Asheville ask:

"Is this a good time for buyers to get a ‘bargain' in Asheville ?"  Getting relevant information to our clients and interpreting data for them is a serious focus in our Asheville real estate office. We appreciate good questions! And as local experts, we are a good source for on-the-scene answers.  The answer to, "Is this a good time for buyers to get a bargain in Asheville ?"  depends on how one defines " bargain."  

Asheville Real Estate Market "Bargain" Defined

Going beyond possible financial opportunities due to foreclosure and/or short sale, if the definition of  "bargain" extends to the concept of "value-added" then the answer is a resounding YES! Asheville Real Estate Market "Value-Added" -Features to look for when "value-added" is important to you:

Energy Star windows
Energy saving daylighting
Energy Efficient Appliances
Low-flow toilets and low flow faucets
Low-flow showerheads
Low-VOC paints, caulks, sealants and finishes
"Green" carpet and/or hardwood floors

And overall Sustainability.

Research has shown that a home's market value increases by $20 for every dollar decrease in utility bills, and this home offers energy saving appliances, water savings, and daylighting. It is about life on the GREENSIDE... and, about this,  I am biased

Jeff~

Yes the character and personality of this neighborhood is diverse. There are home across streams one reaches via a footpath, and there are bungalows just a handshake away from each other...there are estates where one may find a beautiful Arabian...and there are tiny art studios.. You see this reflected in the stats.
