With a population of 87,000, Asheville is the largest city in Western North Carolina and serves as the area's economic and cultural center in many ways. Talk about your A-list cities— Asheville is amassing accolades on many fronts (see below).
Billed as a place where "altitude affects attitude," Asheville is located in the French Broad River Valley and surrounded by the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Everyone in and around Asheville knows the best part of living here is the thrill that hits you whenever you realize there's a mountain outside your window. For well over a century, the local topography has influenced everything from arts and crafts to city development to outdoors activities.
Diverse real estate options characterize the greater Asheville area. Within a short drive of the city center, it is entirely possible to consider a downtown condo, rural farm, suburban home in a gated community, or an older home in one of the historic neighborhoods surrounding downtown Asheville.
Asheville real estate and home buyers are encountering tightening supply in neighborhood centers like West Asheville's Haywood Road, downtown Asheville, and the newly created Biltmore Park. The reduced supply of homes for sale and increasing home prices are encouraging home buyers to consider options outside of Asheville city limits. Home sellers in communities such as Woodfin, Marshall, Candler, and Mills River are all adjusting to this new level of interest.
Stories about Asheville's quality of life have become a staple of national media outlets. In 2007, the city topped Relocate-America.com's list of "100 Best Places to Live." In 2009, U.S. News & World Report named Asheville one of "America's Best Affordable Places to Retire." And in an August 2011 report, Good Morning America pegged Asheville as one of the "10 Most Beautiful Places in America."

ABOUT BUNCOMBE COUNTY, NC:
Asheville is the largest city in Western North Carolina, but surrounding towns in Buncombe County offer small-town flair and varied amenities. The population is approximately 240,000 in the county. The four-season temperate climate with average snowfall of only 13 inches makes year-round living easy. Average elevation is 2,165 feet above sea level with surrounding mountain elevations of up to 6,685 feet at Mount Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Mississippi River. Because of this broad range of elevations and corresponding climates and plant growth, the area is one of the most bio-diverse in the United States and the world.
In North Buncombe County, Weaverville real estate is seeing explosive growth, and to the east, Black Mountain homes have continued to see values climb as people discover the area.
