How is the tax bill of a home determined in North Carolina?

Real property is appraised at 100% of market value and includes land, buildings, structures, and improvements. State law requires counties to reappraise every eight years, but many counties reappraise every four. A bill can be a combination of tax rates. For example, a home inside the City of Asheville and Asheville City School districts will have three separate tax rates represented on a bill: the Buncombe County rate, the City of Asheville rate, and the Asheville City School rate. All rates are totaled to calculate the total tax liability. Tax rate estimates for our mountain communities can be found on page 127 of the Beverly-Hanks Welcome Magazine.

Charles was assigned to us when we called to express an interest in purchasing a home in the asheville area. We could not have been more pleased. It took us over a year to find our home and Charles was always right there for us. Never pushing - but informative and worked with our schedule every second of the process. Charles added laughter and joy to our house hunting process. Considering we currently live in Wisconsin, Charles took care of every detail of the process for and/or with us. We could not have done it without his assistance. Thank you for your patience Charles. We found "home" with your help!!

Thanks to Charles London we avoided a costly mistake. Initially we decided to buy a certain place based on internet pictures. We thought we should buy it and made an offer. We were not planning to come and look at it before closing. However thanks to Charles' insistence that we come and look at it before purchase we flew down and when we saw the place realized it is not what it was shown in the pictures. We therefore cancelled our offer and opted for another place we had seen on the internet and we immediately liked it a lot. Charles then advised us on the offer and moved very fast to close it. When we decided to bring the closing forward he spoke to the other agent and brought it forward. He is very dynamic and moves fast in crucial issues. He helped us to get the water, electricity and the gas connected and also helped us to find an electrician and a plumber. He was our first contact in the city and he gave us very good guidance. He took us on a tour of Asheville and showed the city and main commercial area. He offered to keep an eye on the place till we moved in June. Even at this juncture we are dependent on Charles London as our main contact in Asheville. He even offered to open the door for the moving van in case we are delayed for any reason. We are very grateful for his unobtrusive help. We would be happy to recommend him as a housing agent to anyone.

  “Charles London is a very trustworthy agent who cares about his clients. I have worked with him on three pieces of real estate and have only positive things to say about his approach to real estate in today’s market.  Charles has integrity and is an honest straight shooter that tells clients the way he sees things without beating round the bush or sugar coating anything.  He will work hard for his clients and strives to orchestrate appointments around his clients’ schedules and always has time for them.  I would highly recommend Charles if you’re looking at purchasing or selling real estate in Asheville or Western North Carolina.”  (Aaron Meinch)  

  Dear Charles, we just wanted to thank you for your help in finding us the perfect home for our family in Village Park.  Our move from Florida to North Carolina went very smoothly thanks to you.  You were so patient with us taking us to look t homes for almost a year!  We would highly recommend your services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, and if we move again…you’ll be the first one we’d call!  Thanks again,”   

“From the moment we met Charles we knew we were in good hands because he is an honest, genuine person who really cared about our first time home buying experience.  Throughout the process he educated us while allowing us the freedom to choose the perfect home.  We couldn’t have done it without him.  You just can’t go wrong when Charles is in your corner. Thanks Charles!”  (Ben & Lora Atkins)

“My husband and I met Charles on an exploratory trip that involved relocating from Portland, Oregon to Asheville, NC. During that visit we met with 3 realtors. Charles was the only one who followed through with his promise to provide us with the additional information we had requested. During the months that followed, Charles continued to meet and exceed our expectations that enabled us to find the home of our dreams. Even during the inspection phase of the purchase when an original construction inspection was missed and while not structurally a problem this over site would have caused an issue in the future when we tried to sell our home, Charles was relentless with city officials to get the problem quickly resolved so there would be no delay in our closing. Charles made our relocation from one coast to another and the purchase of our new home as seamless as possible. We have and will continue to recommend Charles to anyone searching for a home in Western NC.” May 1, 2010
