Location, location, location...

The best location for you in this area will be determined by what you value and what you like to do most while here. If you already know where within this area you want to locate, this page isn’t for you. If you’re new to the area, the more you can tell me about the following, the better I’ll be able to help you.

In-Town Convenience

  • If you prefer to dine out frequently and thus want to be within, say, a 15-minute drive to a variety of restaurants
  • If you like to be close to shopping
  • If you need to be within a close drive to our major medical facilities

Then you’ll probably want to be in the Blowing Rock or Boone or Banner Elk/Linville area.

Outdoor Actvities

If either skiinggolfinghiking, or horses is your first priority, let me know and we’ll discuss where they are located.

Developed Communities

If you prefer the conveniences of an established subdivision or vacation development, then you’re in luck, for these exist throughout the area.

Country Solitude

If you are thinking of a private, rural setting, then keep two things in mind:

  1. Landhas become quite expensive here. It’s unusual to find buildable land at less than $10,000/acre in the least expensive parts of Watauga County. Steep, wooded hillside, generally in tracts of at least 10 acres, can be purchased for about $500/acre, but these tracts usually have only one building site. If you’re willing to drive 30-40 minutes out of the Boone/Blowing Rock/Banner Elk area, land can be purchased less expensively in eastern Tennessee and in AsheCaldwell, and Wilkes
  2. The counties in this area do not have zoning outside cities, with only a few exceptions. Thus, if you purchase land, with or without a home, you’ll have no guarantee as to what might be built next to it in the future.

Affordable Property

If price is a major consideration, then read on to the next section, What About Cost?

Looking for Something Else?

If a different consideration is very important to you, then let me know and we’ll discuss it.
