HENDERSONVILLE, NC--(Marketwire - Mar 21, 2013) - Carriage Park, a planned community in the mountains of Western North Carolina, is well positioned to benefit from the upswing in the North Carolina real estate market.
With real estate finally showing signs of stabilization, more retirement age consumers are having greater success selling their current homes and pursuing options in the mountains of North Carolina. In addition to the natural beauty of the area, retirees are taking into consideration the local low cost of living, median home price, moderate climate, high rate of doctors per capita, and low crime rate.
Many have selected Carriage Park as their new home on the basis of proven developer commitment, amenity features and surprisingly affordable price for this desirable area of the Carolinas.
Located 20 minutes from Asheville, in Hendersonville, N.C., Carriage Park offers private mountain community living with a selection of neighborhoods offering panoramic mountain views.
With several lots sold in the past few weeks and homes starting construction, expansion of Carriage Park is imminent.
Brendon Hamlin, VP of Sales at Carriage Park, said, "We are seeing a dramatic increase in traffic and sales here in Carriage Park. So far this year, we have sold more lots than we did all of last year. We have 6 homes under construction and 4 more that are in the approval process. Overall, we are seeing significant market improvement."
A new model home has just been completed in Carriage Glen, one of the newest Carriage Park neighborhoods. A European-style home, the model includes creative rooflines, arched windows and doorways, stone accents, chimney caps and cupolas as a sampling of options available to buyers. Buyers may also present their own plans. With more people looking for property in a community-driven development where they can enjoy their retirement years in Western North Carolina, Carriage Park is determined to meet the need.
"People are looking for vibrant communities like we have. Demand has pushed us to move forward with the development of new lots. We have just released 33 new lots and have a brand new model home to walk through. It's really nice to see things improving and Carriage Park is uniquely situated as one of the best gated communities in WNC," said Hamlin.
