Across the nation, the real estate industry is seeing increases in the existing-home sales pace while housing inventory is declining. This is pushing home prices up at a steady rate and making it more difficult than ever to find affordable houses for sale. Western North Carolina has not been immune from this national trend.
However, there are still great affordable options available in the local market…if you do your research. Based on our web traffic over the last month, that is exactly what many WNC homebuyers are doing. Each of these five most popular homes for sale in WNC have garnered more than 1,500 views on beverly-hanks.com. In fact, the top listing has received more than 2,500 views!
While the most popular home was well out of the lower price tier, the next three of the top five fell below the measured affordability threshold, and the fourth came relatively close. Plus, believe it or not, the most affordable home among our most popular last month is still up for grabs!
