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.

I have never enjoyed working with any agent as much as I enjoyed working with Tara Irby. She is smart, a delightful person and knows what she is doing. Tara sold my house in one day and made the process as easy for me as possible. I feel…Read More

We started our house hunting with Tara in May 2016 and we closed our dream house in December 30, 2016. We worked with her for around 7.5 months so I guess we got to know her very well. Tara was very professional, well informed and always…Read More

I was very pleased with how Tara handled the sale of my property. From the beginning she knew how important communication was to me especially with me being out of the country. Tara ensured that I was always informed on what was going on and…Read More

I have never enjoyed working with any agent as much as I enjoyed working with Tara Irby. She is smart, a delightful person and knows what she is doing. Tara sold my house in one day and made the process as easy for me as possible. I feel very fortunate to have found her among all the agent/brokers in Asheville. She is a jewel!

We found Tara Irby to be outstanding! She completely understood and respected our needs and anytime there was a house we wanted to see, she was able to get us in to see it very quickly. We also found Ms. Irby to be helpful on every matter concerning the house; i.e., any questions we had that she did not know the answer to, she immediately made phone calls, then got back to us very quickly. Truly, Ms. Irby was completely professional, and an absolute joy to work with! We absolutely love our house, which is exactly what we were looking for. We cannot say enough good things about Ms. Irby, and would not hesitate to recommend her in the future!

We started our house hunting with Tara in May 2016 and we closed our dream house in December 30, 2016. We worked with her for around 7.5 months so I guess we got to know her very well. Tara was very professional, well informed and always accessible even at the weekends and evenings. She was very patient, friendly, quick and on time. She never pushed us to buy a specific house. On the contrary, she was always on our side. I can tell a lot of good things about Tara but I would say she is definitely the agent that you need and I strongly recommend her to our family members and friends.

I was very pleased with how Tara handled the sale of my property. From the beginning she knew how important communication was to me especially with me being out of the country. Tara ensured that I was always informed on what was going on and needed to be done even with a 9 1/2 hours difference in time. She was professional at all times and communicated very well my options and best approaches. It was not one time that I wondered or questioned if I chose a good agent. Because of these things along with her understanding of the housing market, I would definitely recommend Tara to other sellers and buyers.
