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.

It’s Time to Make Lemonade
Why you should consider a foreclosure property for your mountain vacation home……….

Dale Carnegie once wrote, “When life deals you lemons, make lemonade.” The sad truth surrounding the present state of our nation’s economy is that the housing industry has been one of the hardest hit.  Many homes have fallen into foreclosure as a result, and are currently owned by the banks – another industry that has suffered greatly. There are LOTS of lemons associated with the country’s current financial situation, but Silver Creek Real Estate Group has the perfect recipe for lemonade.

Bank Owned PropertyWestern North Carolina has fared far better than the majority of the nation, but there is a limited supply of foreclosure properties available for purchase here. Silver Creek and our experienced team of brokers keep a close watch on the local market – including the popular resort villages of Cashiers and Highlands, as well as Sapphire Valley, and the towns of Glenville and Lake Toxaway. We monitor foreclosure filings on a daily basis and attend auctions at the courthouse regularly. We understand the foreclosure process and can help our clients navigate the legal waters surrounding these unique purchases. Buying a foreclosure property has several advantages, the greatest of which can mean an incredible savings for the buyer. We take pride in finding these hidden treasures for our clients.

As the economy continues to right itself, these foreclosure properties will dwindle and all but disappear. Don’t wait any longer to reach for that dream home in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. Call Silver Creek Real Estate Group to discuss your vision and budget – we can begin searching for your ideal family vacation home before we’ve even hung up the phone. You’ll soon see why no other brokerage firm in Western North Carolina can make lemonade quite like Silver Creek! For more information or if you would like us to send you a list of foreclosures, call us at 828.743.1999, e-mail us at info@ncliving.com or drop by our offices conveniently located just west of the Cashiers Crossroads in the Shoppes at CreekSide.
