I have been on a bit of a journey of self discovery for the past two weeks. I think sometimes you have to step away in order to see the bigger picture.
I have been traveling which is why I have been so absent but it was good for me to see other places in order to realize the value of what I have here.
What I learned is that home is not a location but a feeling...
I returned to my little bungalow in N. Asheville yesterday with a renewed appreciation for what we have in our mountain town. I missed the eclectic vibe of the people, the warmth of my friends, and the comfort that my little house provides me.
Believe me that nowhere is "perfect" in condition or aesthetic but the feeling that I had returned to the place of my heart was undeniable. I woke up to the sound of the songbirds and view of the mountains out of my back porch to a place of familiarity and I knew that I was home.
Defining what home means for you will be a key element to finding the right house. As much as we would like to think that buying a house is a financial investment, which it is, it is very much a visceral, emotional decision that will manifest itself the moment that you open the door. How does the space make you feel? Does it give you a sense of comfort and peace? Can you imagine holidays, dinners, family and friends laughing around your table?
If you can, then you can consider that your heart has come home.
I have found more support, love, and consideration in Asheville than I have found in any other town in the world (and I have lived in 12 different states, 1 U.S. territory, and 1 foreign country). Asheville is known as a place of renewal.
Know that I will be very attune to the anxiety and emotions that you feel throughout your home buying or selling experience. After all, it is my sole concern to address your needs, provide guidance, and ensure that you are comfortable with your decision.
I have been where you are...and I understand.
Here are today's open houses. Let me know what questions you have.
