Is there a best time of the year to buy a house?
When it comes to buying a home, there are pros and cons for each season. Generally, the best season to buy a home is in late summer or fall. There are still plenty of homes for sale, but without the intense competition found during spring. Sellers are also known for being a bit more flexible this time of the year. Zillow reports that the highest number of listings with at least one price reduction are found August–September. However, the deeper buyers venture into fall, the less choice is available. If you value choice, and you want more buyers competing for the home you are leaving, spring could be your best season. Ultimately, the best time to buy a home is when you’re financially ready to do so.

Christopher Purser has been an amazing support through the entire process of preparing our home to put on the market, all the way through the lightening fast sale of the home. His knowledge and expertise allowed for us to feel informed and prepared. He went above and beyond with the level of support for us as we navigated the selling process. Chris has a gift for combining his knowledge and expertise along with his capacity to deliver very personalized attention where you feel seen and heard and valued. I would highly recommend Chris and his partner, Libby Mijanovich, to anyone who is considering selling or buying a home.
Khristine Rolfe, Asheville, NC
First impression was favorable. Meeting with Chris and Libby reinforced favorable impression, including knowledge, experience and past performance information. The thoroughness and support provided by Chris was exceptional! Chris was more proactive then reactive to issues and expectations. Chris and Libby Mijanovich made an excellent team, reinforcing each other's areas of knowledge and execution. Chris displayed all the requirements you'd expect in a real estate agent and professional - knowledge, experience, personality, attention to details, and overall performance.
Tom Graziano Asheville, NC
Christopher Purser was incredible to work with. He always made us feel heard and we felt like he always had our best interest in mind. He will work non-stop for his clients. I would hire him again for any real estate transaction and would recommend him to anyone I know.
Joshua Smith, Weaverville, NC
We met Christopher and liked him right away. He showed interest in what we wanted to do and knew just how to get it done. Chris worked tirelessly from start to finish and sold our home in days and we got $15000. more than we asked for. We will recommend Chris as a top notch agent anytime.
Chris is the best realtor I have ever worked with. Will definitely recommend him to anyone buying or selling property.
Kevin Smith Weaverville
Christopher and Eliza worked together to represent us, as buyers, in the most trustworthy, efficient, and caring, but professional manner. Christopher and Elizabeth were there before, during, and after the sale. They always went the extra mile to help us with anything we needed. Exactly what you need, especially when you are an out of state buyer. We were always confident, knowing that we were well represented by Christopher and Eliza. After the closing, when we arrived from Maine, some of the systems in the house were not working and the two of them immediately found repairmen to get our house in working order. Not only that, Christopher had a meeting with all parties involved to clarify the responsibilities and solidify a solution quickly.
Barry and Rebecca Kempson

Sherry ..Niles Ohio
I could not speak highly enough of Chris. He was an amazing advocate for us through the entire buying process. He was supportive, accessible, and went above and beyond more than once. Chris is truly amazing and a joy to work with.
Lisa, Mars Hill
Working with Christopher Purser was a real pleasure. Knowing him as a friend I really wanted to support his business and I knew that he would be the best person for my first time home. Everything went so smoothly and he always communicated with me in great depth and was also extremely responsive. I really would recommend Chris and have recommended him and The North Asheville office to my clients.
Gary Topple, Mars Hill
Chris Purser deserves to be paid MUCH MUCH more. He was more than great to us the ENTIRE time. Chris truly showed us what it meant to go above and beyond.
Chris did amazingly during our purchase of a new house. The owner of the house was a lot to deal with and Chris really helped us during the process and comforting us! If it had not been for him, the transaction never would have happened.
Chris is an excellent agent, I wouldn't recommend anyone else!
Loved how Chris emphasized that he would advocate for us through the whole process. He definitely held up his end of the bargain and fought for a fair deal throughout all steps of the process. He was friendly, professional, and fun to work with. We would 100% work with Chris again!
Andrew K, Mills River
I loved working with Chris. Awesome person, lightening fast responses to questions and communication. Very detailed, very caring. Able to handle stress extremely well. He also negotiated $55k off of the asking price!
Joshua Robbins, Asheville NC
Christopher Purser Is a problem solver. He excelled at everything we threw at him. He truly cares about our success. Christopher sold us our first home with a seamless closing, Mostly because of his attention to detail. We are closing our second house next week everything is all set to go. Has a great personality!
Mike & Carol Budreau Asheville NC
I cannot say enough good things about Chris. He constantly went above and beyond to make sure I had what information I needed and that I felt good about the whole transaction. He was always there when I needed to get ahold of him and never hesitated to lend a hand. He was able to get everything we asked for and I walked away from this feeing confident in my purchase. I could not have had a better agent to buy my first home and he was absolutely phenomenal.
Brantley Hissom - Hendersonville, NC
As I stated above Chris answered the phone. We immediately knew He was the agent for us. We had no knowledge about real estate in NC as we were moving from FL. Chris listened to what we wanted and we found exactly what we wanted. He was there for us every step of the way all the way to the closing table. We could not believe how considerate he was of our fears and concerns as well as he shared in our joy when things looked bleak but worked out because he was working so hard for us when we didn't know what he was doing to get things done. His personality and his perservance speaks volumes. Chris is not one of those agents that is there only for the money. He truly knows NC real estate laws and how to explain it to his buyer. Chris not only deserves all 10's on a survey but we would give him 100's. Thanks Chris for all you did for us. Cathy & Gary Refer back to my previous comments Chris is one of the best realtors on our list. Gary and I have purchased and sold at least 10 houses in the last 26 years we hope and pray number 11 will ne our forever home.
Gary and Cathy Stayrook
As I check "excellent" in all these categories, I readily remember MULTIPLE examples of how Chris served us for EACH of these categories. In a word, he was solidly excellent in each of these categories and each time he made really important and valued contributions to our efforts to buy a home. These categories I'm referring to in your survey include: professional, friendly, attention to detail, polite, trustworthy, clear & timely communications, respectful, negotiating skillfully and effectively on our behalf, etc. My wife and I only had contact with Matt G who, as we indicated in a separate survey, was excellent and timely in his work too. We didn't have contact with anyone else in your office. Obviously, we feel Chris is exceptional and gave exceptional service. No other realtor in our decades of purchasing real estate has even come close.
John Laird, Asheville, NC
Chris was terrific in working with both sides to resolve some major and potential deal breaking issues. He was instrumental in getting the deal done. I couldn't be happier with his efforts and professionalism.
We knew Chris would go above and beyond for us before we began the process. He exceeded our expectations. Beverly hanks is lucky to have him on the team. Chris made the process stress free and helped us every step of the way, whether it be negotiation, referrals, staying in frequent contact, answering all questions and staying on top of the market for us…
Libby Mijanovich really earned her commission on this sale. She kept me steady thru an unusually difficult circumstance.
THIS WAS A MOST PLEASANT EXPERIENCE FOR US. LIBBY HANDLED EVERYTHING WITH A SENSE OF CALMNESS AND EASE HIGHLIGHTED BY ATTENTIVE COMMUNICATION. IN ADDITION, THE HOUSE WAS SOLD WITH 4 WEEKS AFTER THE OPEN HOUSE. WE WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND LIBBY AND HER ORGANIZATION.
MITCHELL CANTOR BOCA RATON, FL
Libby was absolutely amazing! She went above and beyond my expectations with her knowledge, professionalism, and availability. She fought for me and made sure I felt comfortable in every step of the process. I could not have had a better experience working with her, and plan to use her again for my next house! Not only is Libby a true professional in every sense of the word, she has a great personality and made the process fun!
Benjamin Phan, Asheville NC
Libby Mijanovich was a through professional right from the start. Libby went over and above the required: taking care of small details, making sure that the property was sale ready, and that the legal pieces were in place. I was away traveling and unable to attend to these in person so there were complications and complexities. She also had to deal with a 10.5 hr to 12 hr time difference in communicating with me for most of the time, and she managed this well. I would recommend Libby Mijanovich to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, competent, professional, R.E. broker in the Asheville, NC area.
Libby was absolutely perfect for me. I will not be moving again but I am going to tell/ have already told all my friends about Libby Mijanovich!
Margery in North Asheville
Libby was absolutely amazing from start to finish, she really cared about us and took us under her wing. We were first time buyers and had no idea about anything when we started, she guided us through the process with care, attention and in the most professional manner. We couldn't be happier in our new home and we would recommend Libby to anyone!
Ernest and Corinna McLeod
Libby's attention to detail was incredible. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for property in western North Carolina. Thanks for helping us find such a great house for such a great deal!
Sharon Bigger, Asheville
Libby Mijanovich carefully listened to what was important to us and based upon this helped identify the ideal home for our needs. She was always attentive to our questions. She guided us through the process of purchase and I always felt that she had our best interests first and foremost. It was a delightful process. I highly recommend Libby and will to my family and colleagues.
Tim F, Columbus OH
Libby makes a very good first impression. What is essentially an arduous,tedious, and very serious business was lightened and expedited by Libby's expertise. She has the sense of humor that is necessary for this line of work.
Josh Copeland, Woodfin
Libby was most personable and demonstrated a very high level of competence.
David P. Goff
Libby Mijanovich was incredibly professional and a pleasure to work with through the entire home closing process. Throughout every step she was there for me to answer any questions. I would gladly recommend her to any friends and family looking to purchase in Asheville, NC.
Dominick DeChristofaro, Asheville NC
Libby was awesome. She was very supportive in a way that was important to me: encouraging and reassuring when I was doubtful. Libby did everything possible to insure a positive outcome. She is the best agent that I have ever had (this was the 4th house that I have sold). Libby was made for this career. She has all the skills. If Libby was not 100% sure, she consulted with others in your office. Libby followed through with every aspect of the sale especially Communicating with me and others I involved.
Linda Giannasso, Asheville, NC
Working with Libby was a pleasure the entire time. She was always upbeat and energetic throughout.
Don Sinclair, Asheville NC
Selling a house is stressful. Libby helped us feel at ease and we knew we were in good hands. She covered all our bases and even helped make the transition into a new home easier. I would recommend Libby to anyone selling or buying a house.
Libby was just wonderful. She went the extra mile any chance she had. It was a comforting feeling knowing she helped us through each step as first timers! Will refer to everyone and would absolutely use in the future!!
M Goode - Asheville, NC
Libby's energy, eye for detail, intelligence and ability for putting people at ease made her the perfect person to represent us and our properties. We knew the realtor we chose would be the "face" of our home. We got a great face, as well as a great mind and heart! I had never had an agent who was as pro-active as Libby. She would review stats and knew what other agents were looking for and would call them to let them know about our house. She didn't sit by waiting for people to find us on MLS. In the beginning, she used an estimator from Beverly Hanks, who through her detailed measuring, found several hundred more square feet, adding value to our property. For me, it was wonderful that both my husband and I felt the same way about Libby. This made a normally stressful time of change so much easier. Libby seems to know instinctively how to work with two people selling one property by including both of us in all communications and being a calm and reassuring voice through the whole process. To tell the truth, I'm almost missing the daily interactions but know that Libby will be there any time we need her. Now back to settling in our great new home! Thank you, Libby!
Nancy Mason, Asheville
We were first time home buyers and Libby was such a pleasure to work with. She listened to us and understood what type of property we were looking for. Buying a home is a very intimidating process and she made it as easy and enjoyable as possible. I will recommend her to friends. My husband and I love her enthusiasm and humor, plus she was very responsive and communicated well. Our satisfaction was her goal.
Sara Brooks, West Asheville
Libby Mijanovich is hard-working, tireless, conscientious, and took the stress out of my real estate transaction. Her clear and direct yet gentle communication skills, and her persistently positive and cheerful attitude made the whole process fun and satisfying. She obviously enjoys her work and working with people - even difficult ones like me! Libby was particularly helpful in keeping me focused on my priorities and narrowing down the possibilities. She patiently walked me through a complicated negotiation and I'm convinced she helped me get the best deal possible. From my side, it was quick, simple, and painless. I thoroughly enjoyed her company, appreciated her sage advice, and would highly recommend her. She has a thorough knowledge of the area, the market, and the law. She is one smart cookie!
Jim M. Asheville NC
A good listener. Interprets well the desires of the client. Friendly, energetic and dependable.
Charles and Betty Cooper, 3 Mountain Meadow Circle, Weaverville, NC 28787
We met Libby at an open house in Black Mountain when we were on vacation and she offered to help us find a suitable house in the Asheville area. She sent us weekly listings of houses that she knew would be of interest. Then when we found something that we liked she visited the house and the neighborhood. We returned to Asheville and Libby coached us through the process of making an offer. Even though we didn’t eventually purchase the first house, Libby was very patient and kind to us as we made some difficult decisions. Then she helped us locate and purchase the land to build our home. We would never have been able to do this without her guidance. It was fun working with her and we really appreciate all that she did for us.
Elizabeth, Oxford MS
We weren’t searching for a broker. We met several realtors at open houses. Once we met Libby at an open house, she blew us away with her local knowledge and desire to understand our unique situation. The rest, as they say, is history. She was always there for us & responded very promptly when we had questions or issues. We have worked with many realtors over the years, and Libby is absolutely the best of them all. Her knowledge and understanding of the local market greatly eased our concerns about moving to a new state from across the country. Her ability to zero in on our true needs made this challenging transition so much easier. Her communication skills and accessibility provided a rock solid platform for us to depend upon when construction delays threatened to derail our dreams. We absolutely recommend her!
Donna & Glenn Gross, Flat Rock
Libby was great from beginning to end. She clearly explained the whole process to us. Her recommendation for pricing was right on. She presented a well thought out marketing plan.We never had to call LIbby to find out what was going on; she kept us timely aware during every facet. Her communications with us were clear and on target. It was obvious Libby listened to and understood our needs and concerns. Libby helped in other ways, which were above and beyond what her responsibilities were; such as recommending and arranging for repair work that needed doing, and facilitating the sale of some of our furniture to the buyers. Above all else, was Libby's trustworthiness. We had complete trust in Libby during every phase of the process. There was no doubt Libby had our best interests at heart throughout the process.
Terry May - Asheville, NC
Libby Mijanovich is a trusted friend who provided us with a worry-free experience in the purchase of our new home. In her friendly and professional manner she accompanied us in a timely fashion through every step of the complicated house buying process. Libby responded promptly to our many questions and requests. All of the North Asheville Beverly-Hanks staff team we came in contact with were pleasant and helpful. We give special thanks to Marie and Stephanie who went "above and beyond the call of duty" several times to help us. Thank you, Libby, for guiding us through the purchase of our beautiful new home in a totally outstanding manner!
Sandra Gill Clark, 38 Ben Owenby Rd., Fairview, NC 28730
Libby was honest, available and worked hard to sell the condo.
Alice Davis, Santa Fe, NM
Libby provided a market analysis about a year prior to listing my house...she planted the seed. When I was getting closer to a decision, she was my first choice. I had also referred her to a friend previously - he was very happy with the service he received. As I was making my decision, Libby was very generous with her time and she answered many of my considerations professionally and in person. We discussed marketing strategies and she was the obvious choice for me to move forward. Libby and Stephanie were first class. When I had doubts about the transaction, Libby was reassuring and able to handle my concerns. She is an excellent and skilled negotiator and able to calm down difficult situations. Stephanie Allison worked diligently to handle all of the details of the listing, paperwork & logistics of the sale, successfully and with a smile. She is very pleasant to work with. Libby has a strong grasp of the local market and great customer service and sales skills. I am glad to recommend her to anyone considering a purchase or a sale in our area.
Libby was knowledgeable, ethical, and savvy when helping us with the sale of our home. She always explained things well and gave us lots of choices. Libby really helped make the experience our own.
Sharon Bigger, Asheville
Libby was great to deal with. A real advocate for us through the entire process
Joel Hunnicutt, Hendersonville
Another house in the neighborhood had a for sale sign and I called the posted number. It was good luck to be connected with Libby. Since I am not local to Asheville, I'm not able to comment on all the aspects. Libby priced the house accurately and we closed within 5 weeks. It doesn't get better than that! She did all the right things, was a delight to work with and I highly recommend her.
Elspeth, ormond Beach FL
The best experience I ever had since I have been selling my homes in the past. Pure professionalism! You rock, Libby Mijanovich!
I met Libby at a neighbor's house and felt an immediate affinity; just liked her a lot and felt she was a straight shooter and hard worker. She has a fantastic personality. She was constantly in touch with me and did fantastic advertising. I only know Libby and her assistant. Libby is the best realtor I have ever met or known and now consider her a friend. She is awesome. No bull from her. She is the ultimate straight shooter. I love her.
Libby Mijanovich is one of the best realtors I've ever used...and I have moved a lot. I didn't have the easiest situation to work with but she never made me feel like it was a burden. Libby went out of her way to keep me informed every step of the way. She was very dedicated to helping me find and secure the right house...not just any house. Her patience and professionalism were impressive and she was always accessible. I can't say enough good things. It may sound over the top but I don't know if I would have wound up being able to buy a house without her help.
Patricia Sims, Asheville
We chose Libby to help us sell our beloved Asheville home because she is a personal friend without knowing anything about her outstanding sales record. She proved to be an exceptional realtor as well! Because of Libby, we couldn't have asked for a better experience selling our home. We give her an outstanding rating all the way around! Libby combines professionalism with a personal touch. She encouraged us all along the way to make wise decisions when we were uncertain about our best options. We also appreciated our contacts with the other office staff. Stephanie went "above and beyond the call of duty" to help us. The North Asheville Beverly-Hanks receptionist was also courteous and helpful. Thanks to Libby, we sold our home for more than than we had hoped for and more quickly than we had imagined!
Sandra Gill Clark, Fletcher
Libby Mijanovich was a fellow artist whose craft required great attention to details. This is not my strength so felt good about selecting Libby as she was a former professional artist knew what I was looking in a studio and had the details covered. I would be confident in recommending Libby Mijanovich to friends and family.
Joanna White, Leicester, NC
I was so pleased with every aspect of the sale of my house due to Libby Mijanovich’s excellent professional service as my agent. From the very first meeting we had to discuss the sale through the after-closing communications, Libby demonstrated a strong ability to communicate clearly and appropriately, and to help me understand what to expect. Libby was knowledgeable about the area and the local market, and was careful to check facts with other professionals when necessary. Her guidance during the process was thoughtful and respectful, keeping our needs and desires in the forefront during any decisions. Libby made the process enjoyable with her incredibly dynamic, outgoing personality. I highly recommend her as an agent.
Linda Comer, Asheville, NC moved to Lakeland, FL
Libby was extremely knowledgeable about the process, was highly ethical, most helpful, and very responsive. She understood what we were looking for and the homes she showed us fit our needs. I would not hesitate to use her for future purchases, and would highly recommend her to anyone looking at real estate in the Asheville area.
Bob Sabin, Marietta, GA
I had the pleasure of working with Libby Mijanovich to find a new home for my daughter and me. Libby is very knowledgeable, professional and reliable. There was never a doubt that all steps in the process were done thoroughly and with appropriate consideration of all available options. Libby was readily available by phone and returned calls and emails promptly. She was flexible in scheduling to accommodate my needs. Above all, I would recommend Libby Mijanovich for her work ethic and attention to detail.
Graham Gidley, Asheville
Libby helped my son and his wife buy their first house and they were very appreciative of her assistance. They heartily endorsed her when they knew I was looking for a home in Asheville. Libby was personable, professional, courteous and an excellent communicator. I was living in a state across the country at the time I was looking for a home in Asheville, so Libby was my eyes and ears to help me find a great place. I trusted her implicitly, and she handled ALL details in a superlative fashion. Libby's enthusiasm and expertise are outstanding! She is a pleasure to work with! She explemplifies the ideal Realtor in every aspect of her performance. I would whole-heartedly endorse Libby Mijanovich as the #1 Realtor of choice.
We met our wonderful Libby atd her open house. This was the very first home we looked at. It was the ONLY home we needed to look at ! Although there were many other clients wandering in an out, Wonder Woman Libby was able to answer each person's questions, as well as point out many special features of the home. I think we all felt we were getting special attention. During the buying process, Libby "held my hand" and nursed me through each stage, clearly explaining things to a real estate novice ! She even had her charming husband Jim, assist at the house on several occasions ! We met our wonderful Libby at her open house. This was the very first home we looked at.
