Asheville North Carolina, A Top Place to Buy A Home Or A Second Home.
Asheville North Carolina continues to be one of the top places in the US to buy a second home. MSN Money released the list of the top ten places to buy a second home and Asheville, NC was on the list. Asheville, NC has continued to be listed on different list as a top place to own a second home or a place to live year round. The choice for this city by MSN Money at this time weighed on the fact that if you want a good second home (or main home), make the choice based on its investment potential, and more than one third of second home buyers said that they wanted to buy where others wanted to buy a home.
Asheville NC also fits the criteria used for a second home choice with its weather, scenery, and an active real estate market. Some of the important criteria MSN Money used for the choice also included proximity to a growing urban center, plenty of recreational choices, being able to get out in December, growing commercial investments in the community, a location with the "it" factor, one that is known to be a growing destination for the movers, shakers, and celebrities (where the demand for housing appears to be increasing).
Asheville North Carolina is a mountain town that boast the Biltmore Estates along with a thriving arts and crafts community. The price of homes have appreciated 35% in the past five years, according to EscapeHomes.Com, versus a national medium growth of 27.8% for the same period.
