Sneak a Peek at These Great Foreclosure Opportunities on the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau Before They’re “Going, Going, GONE!”

With a chill in the air, a billowy blanket of snow on the ground and blue skies just overhead – it isn’t too difficult to let one’s thoughts turn to the promise of warm Spring days. Believe it or not, the season that promises the return of green leaves to the trees and a colorful sea of wildflowers to the valley floor is just around the corner! It won’t be long before a steady stream of cars and SUVs begin winding their way back up the mountains of Western North Carolina in search of scenic vistas, peaceful climbs and an escape from the hectic pace of the world down below. Needless to say, it also won’t be long before homes, land and the handful of terrific foreclosure opportunities along the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau begin to disappear as families make the decision to put down roots on either side of the Cashiers Crossroads – just as early settlers did nearly 200 years ago.

Foreclosure auctionNo matter the temperature outside, the talented team of brokers at Silver Creek Real Estate Group is primed and ready to help you and your family find the mountain retreat of your dreams.

Silver Creek Real Estate Group is Proud to Represent the Latest Bank-Owned Properties in Cashiers, Glenville and Lake Toxaway

Attention homebuyers and real estate investors – NOW is the time to take advantage of a recovering housing market! While the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau – a popular resort destination in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina – has been existing in a virtual bubble from the rest of the nation’s struggling economy, the occasional foreclosure or distressed property does cross our desk. Silver Creek Real Estate Group has recently acquired listings for three incredible new investment opportunities. The first is a charming mountain cabin nestled on 2.5 private and heavily wooded acres near the popular historic village of Cashiers, NC. This unbelievable hidden gem offers striking up-close views of the rocky face of Whiteside Mountain and a cascading waterfall on Greens Creek – which runs the length of the property. Enjoy a lifetime of sunsets from the expansive, covered rear deck of this home. The interior of this 3 bedroom/3 bath cabin presents the new owner with lovely wide plank wood floors, master on main, stone fireplace, exposed beams and dramatic two-story Great Room. A fun fixer-upper, the kitchen is in need of renovation – presenting the new homeowner with a great opportunity to make this home truly their own. This delightful mountain retreat – located in Holly Berry Estates – is priced to sell at $206,000. What are you waiting for? This listing will not last long at this price! Follow this link to view additonal information and photos about this Foreclosure Home in Holly Berry Estates.

The second bank owned property Silver Creek is thrilled to represent is a highly sought after Lake Cardinal waterfront lot. Tucked away on 1.44 acres – peppered throughout with sturdy Carolina hardwoods, fragrant mountain laurel, and colorful rhododendrons – this amazing investment opportunity offers a level building site and stunning views of both the shoreline and mountain ridge. Build your dream home here among many other upscale mountain estates! Membership to the prestigious Lake Toxaway Country Club, with its newly renovated 18-hole championship golf course, is available. An absolute steal for a lake front property of this caliber, this Lake Toxaway property is incredibly well priced at $250,000. Follow this link to view additonal information and photos about this Foreclosure Lot on Cardinal Lake in Lake Toxaway.

We’ve saved the best for last! The most recent addition to Silver Creek’s listings is perhaps the deal of the century! Close to an acre lot in the town of Glenville – near all the amenities, shopping, fine dining and unique culture of the renowned resort villages of Cashiers and Highlands – this home site has recently been cleared and is ready for you to begin building your family’s new mountain retreat. This is a wonderful property with frontage to the stunning Cedar Creek within close proximity to popular Lake Glenville. At an unbelievable price of just $110,000, this opportunity will surely disappear quickly! For additional information and photos on this Lot Located on Cedar Creek.
