Brevard is located at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains at the crossroads between Pisgah National Forest, DuPont State Forest, and The Gorges State Park and has a view of Bracken Mountain Nature Reserve all offering a smorgasbord of outdoor activities such as world-renowned fly fishing, kayaking, biking, hiking, and climbing. Brevard is also home to the world-renowned Brevard Music Center, Brevard College, and Transylvania Community Arts Council, bringing very diverse programs, concerts and exhibits to our mountain community. Brevard's hometown feeling is captured by four annual street festivals: White Squirrel Festival, the famous Fourth of July Festival, Halloween Fest, and the Twilight Tour. These include special events such as the Annual Squirrel Box Derby, antique auto show, Old Time Music Competition, and Main Street Alive. The city is nicknamed "The Land of the Waterfalls" due to the many waterfalls in the area, including Looking Glass, Connestee Falls, and Sliding Rock.
Transylvania County is home to over 250 waterfalls and countless streams. Local bluegrass jams coexist along virtuoso performances by some of the greatest classical musicians of our time. Some of the world's rarest plant and animal species on earth are supported by our temperate rain forest. Brevard is also where a pair of white squirrels, on the lam from a traveling carnival in the 1950's, started a family that now spans generations. In short, it is a place like no other on earth. Welcome to the Land of Waterfalls and home to the famous White Squirrel!

In fact many buyers, particularly first time buyers or those buyers that are looking in the entry level price range find just the opposite. One fact is that there are actually a few homes in Brevard NC under the $200k price point when as little as 2-3 years ago a buyer would be challenged when looking for homes in this price range that they would consider desirable. Nice homes for sale in Brevard NC that are properly priced under $200k often times sell very quickly.
