There are hundreds of artists who live near the best of Asheville NC and they dont mind welcoming you into their art studios. For example, in downtown Asheville, NC along the French Broad River in the River Arts District, you’ll find 165 year round working artist studios. Thirty minutes to the north in Burnsville NC, the Toe River Studio Tour takes place twice a year where youll find 100 more local artists opening their studio doors to the public.


A lady said to Real Estate Scorecard recently, If you dont stay young living in this place, its your own darn fault! Science has proven a stimulated mind and body improves the quality of our life, especially as we age. Real Estate Scorecard considers Asheville NC to be ahead of the curve by recognizing how desirable this region has become to retirees and delivering community forums geared towards mature adults. For example, the University of North Carolina Asheville founded the North Carolina Center for Creative Retirement. The NCCCR offers an impressive list of lifelong learning courses for mature adults and cultural entertainment on campus.


Do you know by living beyond the city limits of Asheville NC, you can save $ 665 per $ 100,000 of your homes value in real estate taxes per year. On a $ 300k home, you will save about $ 2,000 per year or $ 166 per month. If you are concerned about real estate tax increases, move to a county whose infrastructure is in place and is up to date. Study the hospitals, public school system and roadways in addition to evaluating the best master planned communities. Study the countys annual budget and future capital improvements. If a county needs to build and expand social services, it would be reasonable to expect property tax increases.
