What is the cost of homeownership in WNC?

I keep an eye on home sales as they compare locally, regionally, and nationally. It’s true that home prices in Western North Carolina have been climbing steadily for some time—a boon for home sellers. However, prices across the South run much lower than the national median. That means that home prices in WNC are still several percentage points lower than the national median—a benefit to buyers relocating from more expensive regions like the North and West. Check out the latest Beverly-Hanks Quarterly Marketing Report to see how home sales are doing in your community.

Michael and Laurie were on top of this sale from preparing to list to the closing. They communicated timely, efficiently and effectively. They went beyond what was required in our contract to ensure that details were handled, that the house was ready to show, that the inspections and subsequent repairs were completed, and they worked extremely well with the buyer's broker. They were always accessible and ready to make the sale happen. I appreciate all that Michael and Laurie did to close this sale. They were knowledgeable about the Kenmure market and the villa sub-market and directed us to price the property appropriately to effectuate a timely sale. They were extremely helpful in making recommendations of contractors and with dealing with both the buyer and the HOA representatives. I am certain we would not have had as successful of a result had we used a different broker. They are a pleasure to work with, and I would recommend their services to anyone selling in Hendersonville.

Mike and Laurie exceeded my expectations. They went above and beyond your typical agent duties. It was as if I had a relative there. They did things I would have to do remotley with difficulty. It saved me a trip or two not having to fly there. But best of all they were very patient with Mom. My Mom forgets a lot and they would continue to repeat the process and reassure her it was taken care of. They are very kind hearted people and helped every step of the way. On another note we exceeded the dollar amount we expected from the sale. Thank you Mike and Laurie

I had listed my house previously with other agents, with no success, prior to listing with Michael and Laurie Hartman. Michael and Laurie priced my house correctly for the market, marketed my house giving it maximum exposure including open houses and having it as house of the week on the Asheville TV website, and upon securing a buyer, negotiated a contract that fit my needs and timing perfectly!

Michael and Laurie are outstanding . We have been friends for years but in looking for a new home we wanted someone who really knew our local market and they more than met our expectations. Michael's attention to detail and his patience made this transaction almost effortless.

My husband and I knew the Hartmans from activities and social events in Kenmure, we knew and trusted them to do an outstanding job and they did! They addressed every question with knowledge and accuracy, and made us feel very comfortable and important to them throughout the entire experience. We would (and have) recommended them to many people.

Michael and Laurie sold our home in two days.....we were pleased how they handled negotiations and how they followed up after our inspection. We would certainly use the Hartmans again (and we have)....They are both outstanding professionals and the Hendersonville office is lucky to have them as part of their team.

I was in North Carolina in mid-April and anxious to sell my parents house from 700 miles away in Illinois. I only had about 3-4 days in town to make arrangements. Michael and Laurie met with us on short notice. They brought a robust analysis of area sales and performed an assessment of the property value. Their assessment was inline with our expectations. They walked through the house and made helpful suggestions on what needed to be done prior to marketing. They down played some of my concerns and pointed out things that I had not seen. With their expert advise we were better able to define a scope of work for a contractor to do the fix up and painting work. This work ran through May. Then they discovered a surprise - moisture and mold in the crawl space. Michael knew a specialist that was able to remedy the problem. The house went on the market in June. An offer came quickly (23 July) and the inspection and sales process flowed without any major hitches. Closing was 31 August. Throughout the process Michael and Laurie were expertly knowledgeable, responsive and proactive with communications. Thank you Michael and Laurie.

Michael and Laurie were all of the above in outstanding terms. The property sold in record time and Michael was there every step of the way to be sure things were done properly and timely. Couldn't ask for better service.

After our house was under contract, Laurie and Michael helped us as we looked for a new home in the area. We may never have found our new house in Orchards of a Flat Rock without Laurie's diligent work . She kept looking online, and advised us that a house meeting our expectations had just come on the market.

Michael and Laurie Hartmann are the most knowledgeable and resourceful team you could ever hope to have on your side in a real estate transaction. My husband and I, moving from New York to Kenmure, feel quite lucky to have purchased a home with Michael and Laurie's assistance. In our 40 years of marriage we have bought and sold homes many times over, but this was the best experience and the least fretful, thanks to this wonderfully competent team.

As I wasn't living there at the time of the sale Michael and Laurie went out of their way to be sure that everything was in good shape for the buyers. This was the 1st time I had sold a house without my husband who passed away, so they made it easier for me to understand what would happen and when. I am so grateful.

We had known Laurie and Michael Hartman from church and from social events, but most important was the recommendations from friends and neighbors who had recently used them to sell their homes and were pleased with the work they did. It is important to feel that your realtors have your interests at heart and know you and your needs. They were willing to meet with us to help make the experience easier whether at the assisted living or hospital. Laurie Hartman was willing to research sales in the area we were considering so I would have a better idea of how to bid. She was happy to take me back for a second look as I was trying to decide as well as offer suggestions on ways to use my present furniture. She also helped me better understand the inspection process. Laurie helped me communicate about the sale of my furniture and when the price was misunderstood, she encouraged me to ask for more money. Happily, the new price was accepted. Michael Hartman was always willing to allow me to select inspectors or repair people, but quick to schedule needed people in a timely fashion. I chose his suggestions and was always more than pleased. Buying a home is a lot of work and takes a lot of knowledge so I was very pleased to find a willing person like Michael who had done this many times before and knew the pitfalls and bright spots. Michael's approach to a problem with the inspectors recommendation precipitated an eventual positive response from the owners who corrected the problem even though they had not wanted to spend the money initially. Michael's recommendation of an attorney for the closing was excellent. It was very efficient and more than satisfactory.

Neighbors and friends in our condo association were pleased with their services. Laurie is good with help in staging and Michael became like a big brother who patiently explained every step and stood up for me when necessary and possible. Market was overloaded and never thought it would sell. Good counsel regarding acceptance of offer.

We were very pleased with the successful effort by Laurie an d Michael to sell our home. We anticipated an early sale of our home, but when it took longer than expected they remained very positive, resourceful and stayed in touch. They were always available to discuss and entertain any suggestions offered. We think they did an outstanding job.

We met Michael at an open house in Kenmure. We arrived 10 minutes after the open house had closed and Michael had already locked up and left. We called the number on the sign and he immediately returned to show us the house. He then proceeded to show us a few more homes in the area that met our requirements. It was late in the day and he stayed with us for several hours. Upon another visit to Hendersonville, Michael showed us around the town and helped get us oriented and familiar with the area. He also showed us several homes that were within our price range and homes that he thought would meet our needs. Michael made us comfortable with the entire process. When we found the home we wanted to make an offer on, he was very helpful throughout the whole process. We could not be happier with our new home and we are thankful for the smooth process that Michael provided and managed. We also met Laurie during the final walk through as she was there to back up Michael until he arrived. She too was very professional and accomodating. We would recommend using Michael and Laurie if you are in need of a realtor in the Flat Rock/Hendersonville area. Thank you, Michael.

Mike and Laurie Hartman were professional, knowledgeable and courteous throughout the listing and sales process. They kept us informed every step of the way and the successful conclusion was a sale that went very smoothly, due to their professional efforts and attention to detail.

Laurie and Michael Hartman are excellent realtors and I would recommend them to everyone. They made us feel comfortable and after hearing our criteria pointed us to the neighborhoods and homes they knew we were looking for. Their knowledge of and time spent living in the area were bonuses for us and they were honest about the neighborhoods. With a short timeline to find a home while in the area on vacation, Michael and Laurie showed us homes and listings until we were sure we had made the perfect choice for us. They were unflappable even in the most hectic of times, never short or stressful, and always, always, kind, humorous, and professional. They reminded us of details as we went through the house closing process so that nothing fell through the cracks - very much appreciated during the hectic times of our overseas move.
