When buying a second home in the mountains there are many things to think about. It can be both a daunting and exciting proposition, and you need a real estate agent that fully understands the process and brings new insight into your vacation home purchase.
Greybeard Realty specializes in vacation properties and second home purchasing. This niche naturally fell into place with the success of our property management division, managing over 200 vacation home rentals in the area. Many of these are managed for people that are either planning to retire to their Asheville home in the future or are using it as an occasional family getaway. Often times our clients are people who originally came to vacation here themselves, fell deeply in love with the area, and decided to buy a second home here in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
Investing in the Perfect Vacation Home
Because of this close association with second home ownership, our agents naturally know what to look for and how to find that Asheville mountain cabin or cottage that fulfills your vacation home dreams. If an income-producing property is what you are looking for, we can help with that as well. Many of the properties we have listed are ones that have vacation rental history. With this “inside” information we can help you forecast the rental potential of these or any other listing. This income could offset your costs while still giving you ability to vacation there, yourself.
This unique combination is not found at just any real estate agency.… It takes consistent experience and a cultivated network of resources to help you turn this dream in to reality.
