Hiya,

So my family and I (parents, siblings and their families, my own small family) are looking for around ten acres of land in the NC area. That's where we all reside and have been searching for a few years, this last year has only made things harder!

We've been mainly looking in the mountains/foothills but anything we do find goes too fast for us to make a move. Or is WAY too expensive.

Ideally looking for land with at least one structure in place. Some of us are able to build homes, some of us aren't.

Also, our budget isn't the highest and a loan/rehab loan is a big possibility.

We are open to Eastern TN, Southern VA, possibly even WV!

Just opening up the channel to other resources besides gd Zillow.

Any leads, ideas, tips, cautions, what have you, are greatly appreciated!

Many thanks,
Hannie

Hannie, welcome to Permies! That's a beautiful area, but you're right, land is extremely expensive in western NC. I think that's because it's very popular for retirees. Other areas you might consider is northeast Georgia or northwest South Carolina. Both are still in the hills, close to Asheville culture, but not as popular as North Carolina.

there are more affordable properties hiding off the beaten track in western nc, but you do have to be further from population centers like asheville. is a hour or hour-plus drive going to be an issue?
