Asheville NC market figures for March 2013

www.HousingFigures.com

- Home sales by # have increased over 30% in the last 12 months

- Inventory – homes available for sale –  has dropped considerably as homes sell faster and people ‘give up’ thinking the real estate market is not moving (not correct now….), sellers – it’s time to get your home listed!

-Under $200k range, which is the majority of sales, is getting multiple offers about 60% of the time – buyers are losing out if they are not prepared with a bank prequalification before they start looking

- There is very little new construction happening, so homes that list have less competition from new homes. Many of them sold at a loss during the last few years as builders struggled

- Average sales price of a home is up around 5% to just under 200,000

- HomesForHeroes.com is supporting local healthcare professionals, teachers, fire, police and military with 0.75% off the price of any MLS listed home, or 25% off for sellers in those categories – $1500 back for a 200k home buying or selling, more atwww.MountainHomesForHeroes.com

Nick Todd Discusses Experience with Patton Property Group!


On December 17th, 2012 Nick Todd bought a home with Patton Property Group.
”Melissa has been a great agent,” said Todd. “I really didn’t expect it to go as well as it did. I really liked the listing card and how it was linked to my email and could show me any houses I might be interested in. Melissa was really on the ball. She was willing to come out anytime I needed to. Patty was also great and got back to me really quickly. I had a great experience.”

Erin & TJ Durham Love Patton Property Group!


On December 5th, 2012 Erin and TJ Durham bought a home with Patton Property Group.
”We just moved to Asheville and found Patton Property Group online,” said Erin Durham. “When I first contacted the office they seemed so knowledgable. I love Gwen Bowers. She is so wonderful. She helped me pick out the right property for my family and helped me with lots of ideas.”
“Working with Gwen, we immediately found that her experience was matched by her work ethic,” said TJ Durham. “Working with Gwen, we knew that we could leave a lot of the legwork to her and focus on our own lives. Trying to relocate to Asheville is a notoriously difficult market, but working with Patton Property Group and Gwen Bowers is amazing experience that overcomes that and allows the dream of living in Asheville to become reality.”
“Gwen was the only realtor who worked at our fast pace, Gwen was so awesome,” said Erin Durham.

Bonny Cocking Discusses Her Experience with Patton Property Group


Homes for Heroes is a national organization which assists military personnel, law enforcement officers, firefighters, health care workers and educators save money on real estate expenses. Homes For Heroes Mountain representative, Patton Property Group, helped Homes for Heroes buyers Bruce and Bonny Cocking, by giving back 25% of their commission.

“My husband heard about Rowena Patton on the radio through the Glen Beck program and thought she would be the perfect fit for us,” said Bonny Cocking. “We loved working with Patton Property Group. Rowena was fantastic. When she came to our home and realized we were selling our home because our businesses were struggling, she was really open to suggestions on how to help our businesses succeed. We also heard from Nadine regularly and she was great to work with. They did a lot of advertising all over the place which was really helpful.”
“Rowena offers Homes for Heroes, which is a program where you have to do something for the community, such as a firefighter, teacher, etc. Since we qualified for that, we are going to save a lot of money! I would definitely recommend Patton Property Group to my friends. Rowena did an amazing job of advertising our home and we even got people from France and Italy that were looking at out home. Patton Property Group put a lot of effort into selling our home.”

Josh and Katie Darty Buy a Home with Patton Property Group

On Tuesday, October 23rd, Josh and Katie Darty bought a home with Patton Property Group.

”I found Patton Property Group on the Dave Ramsey website,” said Katie Darty. “They put us in touch with Gwen, who was amazing. I was initially concerned that being a bigger agency maybe we would not get the personal care, which is why I contacted a smaller agency first, but it was the opposite. With Patton Property Group, there were more people to help and more voices answering our questions. We really felt like Patton Property Group cared.”

“Gwen immediately started finding houses for us and finding places that were more to our tastes,” said Josh Darty. “She was wonderful to us, being first time buyers. It was great that there was a team with Patton Property Group because everybody specialized in something different and it sped up the process.”

Dick & Marjorie Haines buy a home with Patton Property Group


On Monday, October 22nd, Dick & Marjorie Haines bought a home with Patton Property Group. ”We have dealt with real estate people before, and we have never had an experience even approaching what we had with Patton Property Group,” said Dick Haines. “It was a great experience in every respect, every step of the way.”

“Stefanie took the lead and negotiated for us, she was fantastic,” said Dick Haines. “She was in constant contact with us. She was with us every step of the way. It worked out perfectly. The website is the best we’ve worked with. It was updated constantly and always available to us,.”

“The emails were really helpful,” said Marjorie Haines. “I would pick out the houses I like and show them to Dick and eventually we had a lot that we really liked.”

“The Haines were a joy to work with from the start! I remember Marjorie’s first email with all sorts of questions about Black Mountain and the surrounding area, said Buyer’s Agent Stefanie Beierschmitt. “I answered them with depth and honest and I think they appreciated having somebody local who could guide them in the process. They were creative and flexible, as we negotiated a very complex offer on the house they loved and closed on. I know they are going to LOVE being here, enjoying the town of Black Mountain, getting to know their neighbors, and perfecting their house. A long term friendship has also formed with them, besides just a client-realtor relationship and I treasure that!”
