asheville 1st time home buyers tax incentives: NC GOOD REAL ESTATE NEWS - 06/03/09 05:39 AM
Folks have been talking real estate here in the mountains of Western North Carolina. The news is good.
When it comes to home ownership, especially "green-built" homes,  and the economy both  state-wide,

Here are  a few of those facts: 
1) Six N.C. cities - Raleigh, Durham, Asheville, Wilmington, Winston-Salem and Charlotte - were among the top 20 "Best Metros" in the country for business and careers, according to Forbes.  Asheville  is  #6

Asheville, NC  
This morning I dropped by the  National Association of Home Builders page looking for current home building statistics of interest to Asheville, NC  real estate professionals and our home buyers.

Whether a property is commercial, residential or LAND/ acreage it is special in one way or another, and so are the clients who seek their first … (3 comments)

asheville 1st time home buyers tax incentives: Distressed Short Sale Laudable Buyers' Brokers (Part 1) - 05/21/09 11:46 PM
Asheville, North Carolina May 2009 
I attended a seminar on short sales ( sales  in which the proceeds will be less than the balance owed on the mortgage loan) here in Asheville given by two real estate attorneys and a CPA. They have, it seems, the necessary experience to possess a good handle on their perspective on the short sale process and convey it to a group of interested real estate professionals. 
Certainly I gained a deeper appreciation of the distressed property marketnot only here in Asheville, but in the larger view.  It is complicated on both the buy and the sell … (7 comments)

asheville 1st time home buyers tax incentives: Asheville Relocation, The Smart 1st Time Home Buyer, and Tax Incentives They Love (Part 1) - 02/27/09 01:31 AM
I love it when 1st Time Home Buyers, especially our eco-friendly clients in search of green-built homes and retrofits,  venture into the adventureof scouting out, investigating, and then bravely proceeding with their very first property purchase. HGTV has a show called Property Virgins that attempts to familiarize 1st Time Home Buyers with the process.
