Recently, not half an hour's drive from Asheville, N.C, (where our real estate market remains vital, ) we spotted a sign, obviously done by a local artist. It read, " green homes for sale in this Asheville burb..."
"Burb"? What does that mean, I wonder. . .
I asked an eco-savvy husband and wife team what about this...and they had to laugh . Their goal is to develop a conservation subdivision. They want to partner with eco-minded people interested in, among other things, eco-innovation, energy efficiency, true-green-built homes, water conservation, and the creation of economic opportunities for the local communities.
Maybe that's what that "burb" thing was all about.
But the couple are looking, too, at land legacies. So the land surrounding their eco-development , if it hasn't been already, will be placed into conservation trusts. No way that could be a "burb."
To our potential clients, ecological land use means carefully, and over a period of years carving out eco-friendly picnic spots and compelling trails for horsy-folks in the community, and for hikers. Along the way, through the mountain laurels and up to the higher elevations, they know that vocal waterfalls call.
As we talked with our potential clients, we realized how important it is to them that all this is to be done with as little impact on the environment as possible. And we realized something else. Equestrians will love this-place, Hikers will love this place. Green home builders will love this place.
It's a place to live and learn. It's a place to offer wellness retreats, possibly create a "lifelong learning" center. Certainly, they will choose to invite and host ecotourists in all seasons. ..
As you can see by the photo I took (to your left) ...this is one amazing place.
As a REALTOR® actively involved in the value-added market, ,my team and I hope that we will get to be a part of this. We are anticipating working with this eco-savvy husband and wife team who will invite you to Asheville where dreams come true. For now, I feel good when I think that my Clients' contribution will stand in perpetuity as a reminder of their pro-active good will.
