Let's talk about a possible TRADE of our Real Estate Assets.
I am the Owner/Broker of a 3 Acre Vacant Lot in Asheville/Leicester area - I can sell or take a Trade, or Trade Up or Down for Land or Home. Current Value of the land is $138,500 before subdivision.
As a seller or seller client of a listing agent, are you open to creative ways to sell your property?
Have you considered owning property in Asheville?
What about trading your real estate for my real estate? We adjust for differences in values, up or down or make it an equal trade.
Do you need to sell before coming to the Asheville area?
Or, do you need to reduce your real estate assets and get cash to boot if you can't sell at a favorable price?
Would you consider taking land as a cash deposit or down payment towards your purchase price?
Have you opened your mind to such transaction possibilities?
The median sales price for homes in Asheville NC for Feb 09 to Apr 09 was $175,000. This represents an increase of 6.7%, or $11,000, compared to the prior quarter and a decrease of 12.5% compared to the prior year. Sales prices have appreciated 21.5% over the last 5 years in Asheville. Trulia.com
This sub-dividable (per current ordinances - for more profit) 3 Acre Vacant Lot in Asheville/Leicester area is ready to build. I Can take a Trade, or Trade Up or Down for Land or Home.
Fair Market Value (undivided) is $138,500 (I have it listed in NC Mountains MLS as Owner/Broker. Comparables are available) and I will consider trade of sub-dividable acreage/land (equal, up or down) or trade towards home.
I can trade lot plus up to $55,000+ for home but will not trade up more than $10,000 on land alone (and that would have to be dividable acreage).
I will also consider TRADES such as: 1. Trade for land or home of equal value. 2. Take trade of less expensive land or house and consider owner financing the difference. 3. Trade my land towards a house and I pay the difference from $50,000 to $70,000.
Should we consider a trade of our properties, I will also consider paying off any existing mortgage on your property up to $100,000 and transferring that debt to an owner financed loan using the 3 acre lot as collateral at 5.75%.
Areas preferred for trading: Western NC (southern end), south central TN around Chattanooga., north or south GA, northeast or south AL, SC or central to north FL. I will also consider other suggestions in these states.
I am only interested in pursuing any property, if a trade would be considered, so anyone that may consider a trade should walk my property first or have someone trusted to walk it to decide if they would be willing to trade into it or accept it as a trade.
This surveyed 3 acre lot (MLS 451539) sits in the NW corner of Buncombe County and has long range views into a State owned Conservation/game land area of 3600 acres+- in Buncombe and Madison Counties. The other homes in the area are newer on acreage ($170,000 to $400,000 price range). A new custom home (see photos - the new construction next door is NOT for sale) is being built on an adjoining 3 acre lot for a local couple.
The lot has underground utilities/DSL/phone/cable and is ready to build on or it is in great shape to wait until you are ready to build. It can be easily be divided into 3 lots (ordinances permitting), but would also be an awesome site for just one home with room to garden or have a few animals.
CLEAN. QUALITY. Sits off State and County maintained road with its own private drive. Great views to So., SE., and No. and has several possible house sites on a nice laying knoll. Easy year round access. About 12 minutes to Sonic and grocery, pharmacy, etc., 20 minutes to UNCA campus and 25 to DT Asheville.
Cows and horses dot the landscape since it is a country setting adding to the beauty. Some mobiles in area, but not a negative here (Buncombe County is not zoned). Restricted to 1700 sq. ft. min. No Mobiles permitted. Off frame modular, Deltec, log home or stick built only.
If you don't have a trade, but are interested in buying, I will consider some owner financing (I may consider some short term (3 years) owner financing with a 20% to 25% down) or trade for land of equal value, trade up or down or take a home in trade. Can add cash on my end up to $55,000+, but not just on land alone. Send me any info on what you might have.
I will not consider property in a flood plain or that requires Flood Insurance, mobile homes on less than 5 acres or high rise condo units.
