Hey Captain, Thanks for the input. Some additional info..... I am assuming we would end up somewhere in the Marion area, or up to a 20-30 minute commute from that area. I understand this would be 30ish miles from Asheville, which has foofoo stuff for the wife, which is fine. I wouldn't mind a few acres with a view, and from initially looking at real estate online....the views can be quite nice. I am having a hard time finding easily retrievable property tax info. What are the average rates per 100k of home value? Thanks in advance.
