When is the best season for real estate shopping?
Any time of the year is a good time to shop for real estate, especially in Highlands, NC!
Some buyers prefer coupling their buying trip with a vacation, so select the time of year that suits you the best. Are you hoping to get in a few rounds of golf or some fly fishing while you are here? Or, perhaps you’d rather take in the majestic fall color? You may decide you would like to spend the evening in front of a warm fire after a day of snow tubing or skiing. Highlands has four, distinct, gorgeous seasons — take your pick!
A few folks have voiced their concern to me about making a buying trip during the late fall or winter. Wouldn’t everything be ugly then?
The good news is that the mountains are beautiful all year long. In the winter, they take on an elegance that few people ever witness. Vistas open up and you can see landscapes and views that remain hidden in the summer.
Buying property in the winter is also a wise decision as you can see everything in the surrounding area of the parcels that appeal to you the most. This is a huge help, especially if you are purchasing vacant land: driveway and house site placement become much more evident. Further, you can see if there are any neighboring homes and if their proximity is an issue for you.
Visiting Highlands, NC is a great experience during any season. Plan a winter getaway and come see us! You won’t be disappointed.
