"Land For Sale Asheville Just 20 Minutes" read the FSBO (owner's) sign on the side of the road. I skidded to a stop. Pulled over to the side. Backed up... carefully.
Scouting the Asheville mountain area for land for sale is always an adventure, especially if it is mountain land for sale by owner, although it is not always fruitful. This time, I felt a "nudge." Over the years, I have learned to pay attention to such things. If you have ever walked land that simply "speaks" to you, you will know what I mean. Our second home buyer clients who will relocate to Asheville in a few years, might recognize this land as a special find. Later, I would send this photo to my clients on the coast.
The sale of land is a unique activity in the practice of real estate. There's much to consider including that "nudge" that has something to do with a sense of place.
But what does one look for when hunting for "the right" acreage? Here is a partial list of things to take into account:
Appraisal -time for and costs
Survey -time for and costs
Utilities - availability to/at the land and private/public and costs
Sewer/Septic/ Well - availability to/at the land and private/public and costs
Water Quality and Availability - private/public and costs
Air Quality, Sights, Sounds and Smells
Lay of the Land and Soil Quality Evaluation- and costs
Easements and Right-of-Ways
