Trends, Reports, and More

Welcome to Western North Carolina

At our core is the belief that it is our responsibility to ensure you are both well informed and prepared to make confident real estate decisions. We embrace that belief and have published our. Quarterly Market Report (QMR) since 2005 as a tool to help you.

Each year we strive to improve our QMR in order to deepen its analysis and make it easier to understand. You’ll now find even more detailed information by county and price range. At first glance this increase may appear overwhelming. Begin by first focusing on a particular price range and then comparing the information against the county’s supply, pace and closing trends.

If you’re reading this report in its printed form and desire additional information on Madison, Rutherford, Polk and/or Transylvania go to and you’ll find detailed analysis on those counties. Of course nothing can substitute for hands-on, professional experience. If you’d like assistance using the report, our associates are uniquely prepared.
