Most Expensive / Most Luxurious Asheville Condo Buildings

The following buildings are known for top-tier service, amenities, reputation and/or location:

Asheville Condo HOA Fees and Amenities

If you’re considering buying a condo in Asheville, make sure that you’re aware of the monthly homeowner association (HOA) fees, their true costs, the benefits you get from being a resident, and the qualities that make a building successful.

It's also important to note that HOA fees have an impact on financing, as banks will require you to pay both HOA fees and taxes on time (they don't like 3rd party senior liens). Taxing authorities and homeowners associations can place a lien on your condo unit if you don't pay their bills.

As such, high HOA fees can become an issue once you resell. Historically, older buildings (from the 1960s to 1980s) have higher fees, mostly due to several amenities, and limited energy efficiency. Some of these buildings also have residents sharing utilities like electricity.

I've written a guide to buying a condo in Asheville that covers some of these topics in greater detail.

Asheville Condo Appreciation Trends

There are three critical factors to consider when buying a condo in Asheville: the building's resale history, the building's median sale price, and the building's unique personality and atmosphere.

It's also important to take note of the building's 10-year and 5-year sales performance, as it's important to understand how a particular building performed during a downturn. Some newer developments do not have these statistics, so other factors need to be considered.

With ~100 residential buildings from which to choose, buyers should be wary about where to place their investments. Not all Asheville condos have performed well over the years.

Some buildings are fantastic, well-managed, have great staff, have solid reserve accounts, and have consistent demand.

By contrast, some buildings suffer from high HOA fees (despite limited amenities), inconsistent management, and have a spotty appreciation track record.

Additionally, the "X-factor" in Asheville condo real estate, "mountain views," has considerable impact on condo valuation in our market.

Buying or Selling an Asheville Condo

I've had the pleasure of working with hundreds of clients and love getting to do real estate in the Asheville urban market.

Deciding to buy or sell a condo in the Asheville area comes with a lot of decisions regarding weighing variables that impact timing and pricing.

I have direct experience selling in the urban condo market in Asheville and would be more than happy to discuss your needs by e-mail, phone or text.
