Flea for Y’all | Season Starts next Sunday

It’s spring and the season is upon us for all things, vintage, hand-made and cool. One week from today is the first Flea for Ya’ll of 2017. What’s new? The location. We will be at the Asheville Outlet Mall‘s outdoor venue for the day. That means you can spend a day in bargain heaven bringing home both the old and new. Go HERE for the details and come see Kelly and myself for the latest in real estate news and shopping. We hope to see you. Cheers!

SOLDx2

This week continues Modern Asheville Real Estate‘s first quarter upward trend. We closed on homes for one buyer and one seller this week. One of our mid-century clients traded in their groovy pad for a right-sized, rustic retreat and one of our investors lightened their rental property load while the market was in full swing. {Yeah!} And did we mention we were able to get another buyer and seller under contract at the same time? With two full days left this week who knows what we will get done. Cheers to us!

The Shed Roof

Good Morning Folks. In our team’s discussions around new residential homes here in Asheville we often bring up the term “Shed-style” roof. Overall, it is a popular design feature for our contemporary mountain homes. Often designers use it to emulate the vernacular of a shed or a more utilitarian style of architecture. At other times it is used to either open up your view or control the sun coming in. I thought the below video gave a nice overview of the popular roof style here in Asheville. Enjoy!

Modern vs. Contemporary

In working with both professionals and clients the words Modern and Contemporary are frequently used to describe their vision. Typically, it requires further conversation to understand the details of what someone is wanting. This article from Houzz goes a bit further in depth in explaining these words from an architectural perspective. Enjoy the article here. Cheers!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
