Black Mountain Land Rejuvenates

As you may have heard, a fire this spring burned more than 740 acres of Black Mountain and Montreat  land. After a dryer than usual winter, the fire spread quickly and took several days to contain.  A photo, taken by a runner on the Toll Road just after the fire ended, shows the degree of charring.

 But if anyone doubts the rejuvenating ability of nature, all you have to do is take a look at a second photo, taken less than a month later from the same spot. The dark gray landscape has been replaced by a blanket of green, indicating that regrowth is already occurring in the area. It's likely that in a few months, it will be very difficult to see the remaining scars of the fire. Same Montreat Area a Few Weeks Later

In addition to its ability to rejuvenate, Black Mountain is a vibrant, thriving community. And as Greybeard Realty's market news indicates, the real estate market is also on the uptick.
If owning a home in western NC is on your bucket list, this year would be a good year to do that. Take a look at Greybeard's Black Mountain listings, and contact Greybeard Realty for more information.
