Western North Carolina Real Estate
Our brokers specialize in luxury homes, mountain view lots, large acreage parcels, waterfront properties and panoramic view homes. Sellers in today's market are very motivated. The Western North Carolina real estate territory spans from Franklin, NC to Lake Lure. Available mountain properties include community locations such as Highlands, Cashiers, Lake Toxaway, Sapphire, Brevard, Asheville, Hendersonville, Sylva, Cullowhee and Dillsboro.
Mountain waterfront properties are one of our specialties. Many options are available on Lake Toxaway, Wolf Lake, Bear Lake, Cedar Lake, Glenville Lake, Thorpe Reservoir, Mirror Lake, Whisper Lake, Lakes Jocassee, and Keowee in South Carolina. Waterfront homes, lots, acreage, and investor land are also available fronting trout waters, bold rivers, and fish-filled streams.
Western North Carolina is a fly fishermen’s paradise. Native habitat abounds where some waters are catch and release only. Major rivers of the area are the Nantahala, Oconee, Chatooga, Horse Pasture, Toxaway, Tuckasegee, Green River and the French Broad. Residents and visitors alike enjoy fishing, canoeing, kayaking and tubing on these waters.
If golfing is your passion, numerous public and private golf courses grace our Appalachian Mountains. Courses are challenging and the climate is cooperative giving golfers relief from summer’s heat; choices include: Wade Hampton, Highlands Country Club, Old Edwards, Glen Canon, Lake Toxaway Country Club, Burlingame, Sapphire National, Sapphire Country Club, Cummings Cove, The Cliffs, Etowah, Falcon Ridge, The Reserve and High Hampton. Some courses are private and play is by invitation only.
Today’s economy is challenging for many, however, it is a reality that value real estate exists in the marketplace and we can zero buyers in on homes priced below appraisal with motivated sellers or foreclosures and short sales or distress properties.
Generational shifts are occurring as the baby boomers arrive on the scene and help to drive the direction of the real estate market. Sellers of mountain view and waterfront properties that were purchased 18-25 years ago (bought when prices were low and not upside down) can now sell at reasonable list prices and still be profitable on their investment and sale. Our mountain real estate firm can direct buyers to these value priced homes, lots and acreage.
Retirement communities exist in Western North Carolina but they are somewhat unique. We are not a Sun City or Villages type of destination. We make our own sense of community appreciating nature, hiking, kayaking, boating, fishing, golfing, playing tennis or croquet, attending painting or Master Gardener classes, participating as volunteers with Big Brothers or Big Sisters, Sharing House, Safe and many more.
Properties in demand are estate sized lots, family compounds (camps) or farms where owners can have privacy, grow organic crops and flowers, farm the Appalachian Mountains, create real estate preserves or conservation lands. Some residents specialize in only native plants and crops and find their efforts very rewarding.
