Hey, Asheville. 👋 One of our team’s guilty pleasures is driving around different neighborhoods + looking at our dream houses.
Ya know, the house you’d live in if you could have your pick of the real estate market.
Not to mention, driving around fantasy house-hunting is a great way to get out of the house and is a social distancing-approved activity.
We curated a list of our favorite million-dollar listings on the market this spring for you to plan a fun fantasy house road trip through Asheville.
