About Me

What is the “typical” home buyers are purchasing?

Each year, the National Association of Realtors® reports its insights into the characteristics of the homes purchased across the United States the previous year. Last year, 83% of the homes purchased were detached single family homes. There was only a median of 12 miles between the homes that recent buyers purchased and the homes that they moved from. Heating and cooling costs were the most important environmental features for recent buyers, with 84% finding these features at least somewhat important. For buyers 36 years and younger, commuting costs were more important than heating and cooling costs at 39% and 31% respectively. For buyers 36 years and younger, the expected length of time they plan to remain in the home they purchased was only 10 years, compared to 20 years for buyers 52–61 years.

Two years ago, our newly married daughter and son-in-law were looking forward to buying their first house. Cheryl MacPhail was recommended since she was a friend of the groom's family. Since this kind of recommendation can be a little risky, our daughter was thrilled to find that she and Cheryl were very compatible and they both enjoyed the search for a new house. Cheryl helped them buy a lovely starter home and she provided expert guidance every step of the way. This positive experience made our decision to ask Cheryl to help us with a cross-country search for a home very easy. We are moving from St. Louis, MO to Arden, NC to be near our daughter and her husband. Cheryl was absolutely terrific. She is such an easy going and fun person who happens to know the Asheville area and the local real estate market very well. We truly enjoyed the experience and are very happy with our new home. We are now in the process of selling our St. Louis home so that we can move soon to Asheville. it's a shame that Cheryl isn't available on this end to help with the selling of our home where we've lived for 31 years. Wish we could clone Cheryl. We are very satisfied with all aspects of our finding a home in Asheville due to working with Cheryl MacPhail. She deserves a big thank you and a big hug. Cheryl is a wonderful realtor. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a house or property in the Asheville area.

We had browsed through websites of Asheville properties prior to our first visit. While driving around getting acquainted with the different neighborhoods we saw Cheryl MacPhail's name on the sign of a house we loved and since it was "pending" I called to check the status. From that first phone call I knew that she was the "go-to" person for us when we were able to buy and we kept in touch periodically over the course of a year. By the time we met in person I felt I'd already known her forever! Then when we came to the area on a two week house-shopping spree, Cheryl made the whole experience memorable...we bought the perfect house for us! Cheryl gets 5 gold stars from us and I'm sure she'll get the same from everyone we'll refer her to!

As out of state buyers, Cheryl was helpful in finding out our needs and desires of type of residence. By asking questions and through conversation Cheryl was able to guide us in looking at properties to consider. In the process we were able to narrow down our selections to make the final choice. Cheryl was much more than someone to show properties, she was a great listener and processor of information to narrow down our selections. Cheryl MacPhail also was helpful in pointing out things that may not fit our needs in some of the properties. This showed us Cheryl wasn't there just for the sale but for us.
