Asheville has had a strong rental market for the past few years, many of my collgues and friends own multiple rental properties. Our real estate market has been driven by second home buyers and people looking to relocate. That being said, many people looking to relocate are waiting for their homes to sell else where before they buy and this is helping the local rental market. As for the occupancy rate, many of the people I know have experience 100% occupancy, but this can depend greatly on the location of the property and the monthly rent. If you find a property that you want to purchase and it is currently being used as a rental, the property managment company or owner should be able to provide you with their rent rolls and financial statements that can give you an idea of the occupancy rate for that praticular property. With the changes that have taken place in the mortgage sector, I think that more people will be renting because of the inability to qualify for loans. People will always need housing and many will have to rent. Best Regards, Bonnie Gilbert

Hi Edward. We have a specific model for current rental homes and homes that would make good rentals. We have helped buyers in and out of state locate the 'right' kind of homes. I am attaching a link to local rental links so you can see what kind of homes are in that market. Of course for purchasing, I can send you a different link once we have some more information regarding what you are looking for. Call me at 828669 6671if you would like to discuss. Rowena Patton

Find a property management company in Asheville and speak with an agent. Colleges are a good, continual source for rental property so find a property near a university or college if possible.
