High Country Real Estate: September Snap

By Natalie Fogle, REALTOR, Blue Ridge Realty & Investments, LLC

We talk a lot about real estate in concepts and statistics, and we’ll throw some economics in there once in a while, if you look like you really need some sleep. But once a month or so, we also like to give you some perspective with what we like to call our SnapShot.

We take three properties that closed in the previous month around the same price point in different areas of the High Country and compare what kind of bang there is for the buck with those homes in those areas.

For September our three properties were located in Beech Mountain, Linville and Deep Gap.

The average sales price for homes in the High Country  for September was $575,715 and all three of these homes were slightly below that number; but the median sales price was $465,000 and all three of these are above the median. The average sales price for these three homes was $540,033 with an average Total Heated Living Area of 2414.

While these three homes sold in approximately the same price point, and they have some similarities, they vary widely in what they have to offer their new owners. This is simply a demonstration of the further variety and appeal of Real Estate in the High Country!
