Reports on inventories and prices by regional realtors indicate that North
Carolina mountain communities such as Blowing Rock, Boone, Asheville,
Brevard and Murphy continue to show strong sales with high prices. However,
coastal property sales in some selected markets are somewhat flat from 2005
and 2006 levels. Prices have leveled off and even fallen somewhat, and the
inventory of available properties has risen.
Erickson Retirement Communities has received approval from the Matthews
Town Council to build a 1,100-unit continuing care retirement community in
this suburb of Charlotte.
