    Have not been in Asheville in a long time. There used to be many pharma meetings there in past but those have dried up in the past 10 years.

    Geez I’d have to research it to find it again. It’s been five years or so since it sold

    I go to Brevard and Highlands, NC a good bit. Of course neither are Asheville but we’ve been there a few times. Asheville seems to be a “hot” commodity right now and real estate is crazy.....but, I think that’s everywhere now.

    Wow, that’s what I think of as making a statement with a punctuation mark at the end!

    No but I’ve vacationed and done triathlons/long bike rides in the area, it’s very pretty.

    As Anne states, it is now a MCOL but in the early 90's it was a LCOL. It has transformed from a hippie town to a hip town with artists and rich retirees. Some might like Baltimore but I found it boring after just one visit. By the time the 2nd visit rolled by I just went in for the wine tasting and when the 3rd invite came by, I declined ( the pharma outings of those time). It is expensive to get in, going by their admission ticket prices.

    Asheville real estate has definitely become more expensive in the past decade but I still consider it LCOL, especially in the surrounding communities. There are some beautiful expensive houses but you can also find a very reasonable cost of living if you look for it. I think I have a different scale of LCOL/MCOL/HCOL than some other people on here though.

    Should be pretty easy to sell when the time comes.

This one spine surgeon is around 70. He operates from early in the AM until 8-9:00 at night. The guy has to have made multiple millions. He doesn't look worn down either. He looks like you just invited him to the most wonderful party every time I see him. Its his life and he seems to truly love it. I'm sure his family enjoys the money (they live in a $6M home in a LCOL area) but I bet they would like to see him more.
