2014 Home Sales In North Carolina

The NC Association of Realtors Market Sales Statistics show that three areas in North Carolina stand out in home sales. It comes as no surprise that these areas are the most densely populated in the state or that these areas rank highest in employment, health care facilities, financial institutions, technology, and universities. These three state-central areas, ranked in descending order of home sales are Charlotte (on the border of North and South Carolina), the Triangle (encompassing the capitol city of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill), and the Triad (encompassing Winston Salem, Greensboro, and High Point). Charlotte residents experienced an increase of 4% in home sales over June of 2013 while the Triangle region saw an uptick of 6% in the same time frame.

nc neighborhood

Of the regional homes sales reported however, the largest increases in sales occurred in Hendersonville (32%), Fayetteville (23%), Asheville (22%), and Haywood County (22%). Of these four, only Fayetteville does not lie within the Appalachian mountain range along the border with Tennessee, likely making these sales of vacation cabins and cottages with potential rental income.

Statistically, the most popular home sizes are 3 or 4 bedrooms with at least 2.5 baths and a bonus room or office that can be used as a home office, guest room, craft or sewing area, media room, and the like. Most new homes constructed currently are no less than 1,800 square feet (not including attached garage) and are open-based floor plans with larger openings (or fewer walls) between adjoining living spaces, providing an open view and much more daylight to the heart of the home’s interior. Kitchens of today are laid out for the amateur as well as the professional chef alike, providing ample granite counter tops that do not stain, burn, discolor, chip, or crack, and lots of cabinet space for storage as well as sizable pantries for canned and dry goods. Stainless steel appliances are the most requested by new home builders.

luxury kitchens

Given that Charlotte and the Triangle are larger areas offering North Carolina luxury homes, the Triad has its own qualities about which to boast. To travel from Charlotte to the Triangle via Interstate – and vice versa – one must pass through the Triad. From the Triad it is about a one hour drive to Charlotte via I-85 and closer to one and a half hours to Raleigh via I-40. If you have business in all three areas or if partners within the same household are doing business in two or three regions, it makes perfect sense to reside in the Triad.

The Triad has many neighborhoods of luxury homes in North Carolina that provide the convenience of a central location, a short drive to anywhere in the state, East or West, North or South. At Grandover, our luxury homes and estates are nestled in quiet parklands only minutes from the junction of Interstate 40 and Interstate 85. Grandover residents enjoy year-round resort living and mild winters with an approximate driving distance of four hours or less to the most popular destinations in the state. Whether you love hiking and skiing in the mountains or the warm tropical breezes and sunshine of the beach, Grandover in the Triad puts you at the heart of it all.

Top 5 Amenities of a Luxury Resort

What amenities make a resort “luxurious?” Below are the top five characteristics that create a premier refuge for travelers seeking the most memorable escape.

1. Rooms:

nc luxury resort rooms

Comfort is paramount in luxury accommodations. Rooms should be spacious, clean, with cloud-like bedding, downy-soft linens, sound-proof walls, sumptuous carpeting, breathtaking vistas, tiled baths, wide-screen HD TV, and all the technological advances one could require for entertainment or communication.

2. Spa:

luxury nc spa

A visit to the spa should be a memorable event, one that leaves you relaxed, revitalized, and transformed. Whether you have time for a full-body massage or body treatment, prefer a couples experience or require only a facial or manicure, The Spa at Grandover delivers a host of luxury spa treatments to suit your schedule.

3. Recreation:

nc golf resort

It simply would not be a resort without a modicum of recreation. The foremost activity in North Carolina luxury resorts – and in many other states – is championship golf courses, of which the Grandover Resort offers two. Other activities offered by luxury resorts include tennis and racquet ball; zip lines or climbing walls; kids’ clubs; swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, canoeing, and/or rafting; hiking and backpacking; skiing and snowboarding; wine tasting; and assorted exploratory excursions beyond the resort’s gates to take in the local arts, crafts, and entertainment.

4. Food:

nc luxury dining

One of the highlights of any luxury resort is the gourmet food. Specialty dishes are most often the Chef’s twist on regional fare which will leave you satiated and returning again for more. A variety of regional dishes and wines are served at the Grandover resort including: creamy shrimp and grits; fluffy Southern biscuits; crab cake salad; North Carolina farmstead cheese; and wines created by nearby vintners from locally-grown grapes.

5. Service:

greensboro nc hotel customer service

Last but certainly not least is the service provided. What sets the luxury resort apart is the staff that anticipates your every need and prepares well in advance to provide as if you were the only guest. Attention is paid to the minutest detail, your wishes heeded, the smallest request remembered. Herein lies the true luxury of any resort.

What Home Buyers are Looking For in the NC Triad Area

It is safe to say that what home buyers in the Triad are looking for in a new home is equal to what home buyers everywhere are seeking: great location, excellent condition, and the best investment money can buy. Below we’ve assembled a buyer’s guide for those of you looking at luxury homes for sale in North Carolina.

north carolina home buyers

  1. Location, Location, Location!: Location is still number one on the list and home buyers today are looking for homes in urban neighborhoods in the best school districts. Some of the amenities of these neighborhoods include nearby markets, theaters, and shopping centers as well as gyms, recreational facilities, spas, salons, coffee houses and taverns.
  2. Low/No Maintenance: Home buyers want lawns that are large enough for children and pets to play in, entertain guests and family, or even to create small gardens. At the same time the new home should be built for easy access to utilities and less hassle for cleaning and maintenance. With the right architect, builder and landscape team, you can have the home of your dreams without the extra work.
  3. Flex Space: Flex space allows the home buyer to decide what they want or need such as a home office or a media room, a home theater or a playroom for the children, a man cave for him or a craft room for her. Any flex space is a welcome bonus to the Triad home buyer.
  4. Transitional Closet Space: When you hear “transitional closet space,” think storage areas where there is room for everything and everything has a place. Shelves, drawers, short rods, tall rods, cubicles, lighting, and mirrors come together to create a convenient, upscale dressing room that would turn any walk-in closet green with envy. Placed off the master suite, transitional closets provide the homeowner with ample space to accommodate year-round wardrobes for two.
  5. Technological Functionality or “Smart Homes”: High-tech houses or “smart homes” are in demand now more than ever before. Remote control lighting and security within the home or away; whole-home audio/video, networking and communications; automated climate control; hot water on demand (tank-less water heaters); touch-less faucets and toilets; and automated window coverings are some of the newest innovations today’s tech-savvy home buyers are looking for.
  6. Timeless Décor: Hardwood floors; large eat-in kitchens with ample storage, new stainless steel appliances, and an abundance of granite counter tops; one or more fireplaces; loads of natural lighting; open floor plans; neutral coloring throughout; and eye-catching curb appeal round out the wish list for home buyers in the Triad. Most home buyers are looking for a home that is move-in ready in a family-friendly neighborhood that is convenient to schools and work while providing a plethora of amenities.

If you should find yourself wanting any and all of these characteristics in your future home, schedule an appointment today with a realtor at Grandover, where luxury meets location! Come home to resort living all year round. For more information regarding our North Carolina luxury homes and amenities, or to view our current listings, contact Grandover Realty.
