Moving to Western North Carolina

From the Outer Banks to the Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina offers a wealth of different landscapes and perspectives. Research Triangle at Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill is “college funky”, yet it serves as an economic engine. The banking business hub of Charlotte, which is also home to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, boasts major league sports and big-city culture. The mountain city of Asheville has a burgeoning economy in the arts and entrepreneurship.

Finding a desirable — and suitable — house is a necessary early step to moving to this great state. You’ll find no shortage of real estate agents in whichever city you decide to call your new home. Before you start looking at homes, reach out to me and my team at GoPrime Mortgage. Get pre-approved for a mortgage before you find the house of your dreams so you can make an offer knowing you can back it up.

A “Top 10” Destination

Western North Carolina (and more specifically, Asheville) is regularly making the news as a Top 10 Destination (for happiness, desirability, or even “coolness”). More and more people are visiting to check out WNC as a possible place to move to – and we think that’s good advice. If you’ve considered moving to Western North Carolina, visit first.

Relocating to Western NC

Are you ready to call Western North Carolina your home?

A Retirement Haven

Many retirees have chosen Western North Carolina (WNC) for their primary residence or their second home. This area experiences all four seasons – so keep that in mind as some retirees travel south, often to Florida, for the winter months. If you’re relocating to WNC part-time, you won’t be alone, as owning a second home in the mountains has become a popular choice for many.

Drive Around

Pick a day, settle on region or a city, roll down the windows and drive around. Ask questions and visit local businesses, check out the neighborhoods, stores, restaurants, music venues – whatever you find important when choosing a new place to live. Regardless of what others say about the area, you must visit in person before moving to Western North Carolina and see it for yourself.

Stay Active

You can stay active even in retirement here. Enjoy hiking? Bird watching? Sightseeing? Picnicking? A pretty drive? You can enjoy all those activities along the Blue Ridge Parkway. From early spring to late fall, WNC is picturesque to a fault. If you want to enjoy your retirement, you have come to the right place.

More About Asheville and Western North Carolina

If you have a family, you can’t just pick up and go. It’s important to check out the local school system before relocating to NC. In addition to public schools, WNC has Montessori schools, charter schools, religious schools, and excellent private schools. Rainbow Community School in West Asheville and Carolina Day School in South Asheville have received many accolades.

Primarily, the region’s economy is driven by tourism, healthcare, and construction – but Asheville has also been touted as one of the best places to start a small business. A thriving artists’ community has made an impact in the local economy as well. While manufacturing isn’t dominant yet, it does hold its own in many surrounding communities.

Asheville boasts a solid academic environment, from the local community college to the University of North Carolina Asheville. The National Climatic Data Center is spurring economic growth as tech companies discover the talent and lifestyle available in the area.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Zachery Adam at GoPrime Mortgage made my first time home purchase as seamless and easy as possible. Not only is he very diligent and effective in his work, but he also genuinely cares about supporting you through the process of a home purchase. You can’t find such great service anywhere else! I highly recommend him and GoPrime as a whole.

I am a younger first-time home buyer and Zachery made the home mortgage process very easy and stress-free for me. I received a very competitive interest rate considering my age and younger credit history during a time of rising interest rates. Zach and Aaron were very communicative and helped me feel confident in the process. They are calm, trustworthy people you can trust to quickly answer any questions you will have. Overall, securing the mortgage and obtaining the appraisal was very easy, and I am very grateful for Zach’s help throughout the process. Since the home buying process was as stress-free as possible, I am sure I will be using GoPrime again in a few years if I want to purchase another home.


As first time home buyers, my wife and I were so thrilled to work with Zack and his team at GoPrime Mortgage. He was patient, thorough, and made it very easy for us to get through the process. I would not hesitate to recommend Zack & GoPrime Mortgage at all, especially if the thought of buying a house seems overwhelming. After putting in an offer just 30 days ago, we closed today—on time, and with no hassles. Many thanks Zack & co!
