Your Luxury Home in Banner Elk, NC

When searching for your dream home in Banner Elk, NC, you narrow your search based on must-haves and nice-to-haves. Square footage, number of bedrooms/bathrooms, plenty of room for entertaining, a gourmet kitchen, closet space and a balcony or patio are a few items that may be on your list. While it’s important to nail down what you’d like to see once you enter your property, remember to take the neighborhood and area into consideration as well. As a private, member-owned club, Elk River Club is situated at an elevation of 5,000 feet—the Club is consistently ranked in the top ten North Carolina golf courses and offers the lifestyle and luxury home you’re seeking. 

In a recent article about buying a home in today’s real estate market, Mike Shapiro for shares a handful of tips to keep in mind:

  • Research the neighborhood. Shapiro recommends buyers are certain about the community; he writes, “You can always improve a home, but it’s a lot harder to improve a neighborhood.” 
  • Think longer-term. This will be different for each family—one example he shares is looking into nearby schools if they will come into play. 
  • Consider home maintenance. Be realistic about the time you’re willing to invest, and “be prepared for upkeep or to hire someone else to do it.” 
  • Don’t forgo the inspection. This tip is a given, but one worth repeating.
