Asheville, NC Morning

Share this on Facebook download .zip with all pictures

The job market is bad, but slowly getting better. Just know going in that there are only 2 substantial industries in this town: healthcare and service industry. So-called “professional” jobs are extremely tough to come by. Pretty much everybody in this town has at least a second job at a restaurant.

The housing market is the true difficulty of living here: there is less than 1% vacancy among rental properties so the reasonable houses that get posted on craigslist are generally gone within a couple hours (seriously, no exaggeration). Prices for home ownership within city limits are absurd. Growth isn’t necessarily bad, and I don’t mean to be one of those snarky “dont move here we’re full!” people, but factually and objectively speaking these issues stem from the recent influx of transplants over the past 5 years. Controlling the growth and it’s affect on the housing situation is the local hot political issue at the moment.

Aside from those issues, Asheville is an amazing place to call home. If access to outdoor recreation, vibrant arts culture, and small town vibe with big city attitude sounds appealing to you, it’s fantastic, if you can manage to break through (and/or you simply don’t mind existing in a tourist/service driven economy).
