Asheville Real Estate, then Construction

Realty and property in Asheville North Carolina is selling quickly... and there is a lot of it... and even more if you include Buncombe County... and so on if you include the surrounding Counties. Asheville is just about centered in Buncombe County. Going 15-20 minutes in almost any direction will introduce you to a new county. It just seems like the more people that find out about the area, the more people want to leave their overextended or stale life wherever they are, and get over here to the Western North Carolina mountains. Some of our clients refer to it as an escape, while others come to WNC to retire. Some people are just looking for a new great place to start life again, and they connect with the WNC area before they ever visit. My company developer is talking to MapJack about getting Asheville photographed and listed so our "out of town, out of State, and out of Country" clients and friends can view this beautiful city from their office, home, or Blackberry... from anywhere in the World!

There are many choices when it comes to Asheville home building and Asheville real estate. As far as land and property preferences, some people are looking for a mansion with a 50 acre ranch away from everything. Other people want 1/4 of an acre lot with a little bungalow within walking distance of Downtown Asheville. Asheville Custom Home Builders, LLC works and will work with you to find exactly what you are envisioning. A client can contact us with a floor plan they are considering and just tell us "I am looking to build this home in Asheville (or beyond) and I would like about 2 acres of mountain property, within 20 minutes of Downtown Asheville", and that is what we will find for them. When it comes to choosing your custom home, some people go by styles like building a "Cape Cod", "A-Frame", "Tudor", "Log", etc. Some clients know how much square footage they need. In a 1200 square foot home, some 3 person families would feel very comfortable (400 square foot per person), while others may want or need up to 800 or more square feet per person. Once you have lived in a home with 10' or 12' foot ceilings, it is very hard to build or live in a home with standard 8' ceilings. You get used to and comfortable with the height the same way you get used to the space and room.

Building up instead of out? When considering some "green" concepts, many are using a smaller home foot print and saving earth space in the process. Instead of using 2000 square feet of your land, use only 1000 square feet and make a two-story home that equals that same 2000 square feet. Build Up... if you can. I know that as many of us get older, we only want and need one level. Building up is a great option, but it is not for everyone.

For Example: (Sample Real Estate & Home Building Costs in WNC)

Private Acre of land in Buncombe County: $25k - $100k+ (depending on how close to Downtown, if it is in a development, or what type of property it is). We have access to many land options and there are some nice 1 acre private mountain building lots about 25 minutes from downtown for only $30k! We also work with some developments that have beautiful inner-community lots (small town development effect within walking distance to small shops, hiking trails, gazebos, playground, pools, activities, development shops etc.). These lots can easily cost $250k+. Biltmore Farms, and Reynolds Mountain have perfected this high end community plan. You can contact us about private acreage or high end development options. We have access to many reviewed choices in Asheville North Carolina when it comes to construction and realty.

*(Talking about homes now...)Please note that when we say "Standard", we mean great! Hardi Siding, Green Framing (by Asheville Framing & Building... of course), Hardwood & Tile Floors, Nice Bathroom and Lighting fixtures (customers choice) etc. When we say "High End", we mean adding some things like custom timbers in the gables for accents, more decks or porches, some metal roof accents. High End may also include some green options like "green" paint, solar panels, radiant floor heating, Superior Wall foundation, Isynene insulation, etc.

Sample 1500 Square Foot Cape Cod Home (w/o land): Standard $150k+ or High End for $200k+
Sample 2500 Square Foot A-Frame Home (w/o land): Standard $260k+ or High End for $320k+
Sample 5000 Square Foot Luxury Home (w/o land): Standard $710k+ or High End for $890k+
***Of course these are just numbers and we can get it down to the penny once your request a detailed quote per your set of blueprints.

*Estimates are on a "crawlspace" foundation (basement would be extra, but you would get extra available square footage as well, that you have the option of finishing now or at a latter time). Grading & Land Improvements would be additional. We cannot figure this until we see the piece of property and determine what it needs for improvement and for a "house pad".

Just some ideas for you if you are considering building a home in Asheville North Carolina. For more exact custom pricing, don't hesitate to contact us. Thank you.

I am the kind of hombre who loves to seek original stuff. Presently I'm fabricating my private pv panels. I am managing it all alone without the help of my staff. I am utilizing the internet as the only path to acheive this. I stumbled upon a really brilliant website which explains how to make pv panels and wind generators. The place explains all the steps involved in solar panel construction.

I am not exactly sure bout how precise the information given there is. If some experts over here who have xp with these things can have a look and give your feedback in the page it will be awesome and I would really appreciate it, because I really love solar panel construction.

Thanks for reading this. You guys are great.

True, one can save space if his home has a second floor. Now I know what to do with my modular home. I'm gonna tell my home builder to do it.
I'm also on the look out for modular homes and modular home prices.
