Five reasons to live in the mountains

There are many reasons we choose to live where we do.  Many times people just stay where they were raised, never wandering far from home.  There is nothing wrong with that but,  if you are looking for a change the mountains are a great place!  Here are just five reasons to check out the Blue Ridge Mountains as a great place to call home!

1. Waterfalls!  Just be careful, the rocks are slippery.

2. Cooler temps!  Why suffer with the heat of summer when you can live in the clouds?

3. Live in a place with a small town feel.  Leave the rat race for others to run!

4. Hiking is great exercise and what views you get to enjoy!

5. Slower pace gives more time for family and friends.

Give Century 21 Mountain Vistas a call and let us find that special place for you to settle down in.  828.264.9111

Elk River Falls

Boone is host to numerous beautiful hikes, waterfalls, and overlooks. Today we are featuring Elk River Falls, an impressive waterfall in Pisgah National Forest. It is a fifty foot waterfall that cascades over a rock cliff and into an oval pool below where swimmers can wade into. This is the perfect spot to go to in the summer for swimming and tanning on the rocks just adjacent to the waterfall. The view couldn't be any better than that!

Getting to Elk River Falls is an easy hike; a short five minute walk will easily get you to the waterfall where you will find a long flat boulder where you can set up camp for the day!

5 Common Home Buying Mistakes to Avoid

We know that home buying can be a confusing process, so being prepared and doing proper planning is very important. In today's blog we will address five common mistakes that people make when buying a new home.

1. Not budgeting for everything: There are so many added costs in addition to the house costs, such as furniture and appliances, DIY projects, moving fees, and DON'T forget, your first mortgage payment!

2. Neglecting your credit score: Your credit score is going to be very important in the home buying process. As a home buyer, you should obtain your credit report ahead of time and fix any errors before sending it out to lenders. Many times credit reports contain errors and it will be crucial for you to find and fix those.

3. Trusting verbal agreements: A home seller can verbablly accept your bid and still give it to someone else with a higher bid. Always make sure you  have signed paperwork!

4. Skipping the home inspection: It is crucial to hire an inspector to take a look around the house and make sure everything looks good. You can't expect the seller to tell you about any problems there may be and their may be issues they aren't even aware of. It is the job of the inspector to examine the foundation and structural features of a house.

5. Sweating the small things: Don't sweat the small things, such as the color of a house or the kitchen layout. Focus on the location and the structure of the house and once you move in, you can change the small things to make your house into your home!
