Asheville Realtor and Photographer Sighting in Wall Street Journal

Black Mountain Camp Available

Black Mountain Camp Available

Greybeard Realty agent Scott Russell and Asheville professional photographer Gary Leive had their names in a Wall Street Journal story about camps for sale across the United States. Russell, the agent listing the Black Mountain camp property, mentions the tremendous potential for the property, and Leive gets credit for the photos that appear with the story.

The property, featured in a Greybeard blog earlier this year, was built in 2002 as a faith-based retreat but could easily be converted into a primary residence. Built on 83 acres, the main building with numerous cabins occupies only a small portion of the land. Because of that, the property has plenty of room for further development.

For more information about the featured campground, please see 66 Great Aspen Way. If you've always wanted to move to the Asheville area and start your own business, this may be just the property you've been looking for.

Asheville Area Residential Building Permits Rise

Residential Building Permits on the Rise

The Asheville area, which consists of 10 counties, increased 20.4% year to date over 2012 numbers. Buncombe County, which has a 21.2% year to date increase, had 368 permits of the 879 permits for the Asheville area. For 2012, Buncombe County had 613 residential building permits issued out of the 1,478 permits pulled in the Asheville region. While those are healthy numbers, they are still below the market peak numbers of 914 annual permits in Buncombe County of the 2,860 permits for the Asheville region that were recorded in 2008.

Still, the latest numbers indicate that 2013 should again be a positive year. If so, it would be the second consecutive year of increases in Buncombe County and the Asheville area residential building permits after three consecutive years of decline in permits pulled beginning in 2009. It's yet another sign that interest is increasing Asheville and its environs. Please check out Greybeard Realty's land listings and find that prime property you've always wanted.
