Robinson Creek. At the end of Cane Creek Valley, discover a living concept seemingly created by you.

Robinson Creek offers an exciting living opportunity at the sunny end of Cane Creek Valley at the corner of Mills Gap Road and Cane Creek Road. It’s perched just high enough to offer jaw-dropping views framed by incredible natural scenes of rolling North Carolina hillside. Conceived as a quiet community with private home sites, and neighbors you might wave to from your front porch, Robinson Creek is the new model for Western North Carolina living. By listening to what today’s buyer is truly looking for, the builder has developed a series of homes with distinctive architecture, open floor plans, high ceilings, and quality finishes. The homes strike the best balance between superior workmanship and value. At Robinson Creek you are just a few minutes away from South Asheville, which offers an abundance of restaurants, grocery stores, and retail shopping options. Cane Creek Middle School is only five minutes away. Downtown Asheville is an easy 20-minute drive, and you can reach the Asheville Regional Airport in just 15 minutes. Medical centers and major hospitals are located conveniently nearby. Here’s a snapshot: • Land and home packages priced from the low $300s • Elegant Craftsman mountain-inspired architecture • Five unique floor plans on .5 to 1.5 acre home sites • 1,800–2,300 sq. ft. homes (with the ability to expand) • Open floor plans • Granite countertops throughout, fireplace, and hardwood floors • Opportunities to expand and personalize your home within a design guideline • 10 ft. ceilings in the main-level living spaces • Tankless hot water heater • City water with natural gas and septic system • Already completed streets and curbs • County Taxes • A new model home (will be completed by January 2013) • A debt-free community and developer

Inquiries can be made by calling Brian Etheridge at 828.551.8043 to set up a tour of the property, review floor plans, or discuss this opportunity in greater detail. Email:

Getanswers answerstotoyour legal questions about realreal estate ...... Get legal questions about estate Email your questions to and we’ll get them answered

the question: Is it better to close at a particular time of the month?

the answer: There are differing opinions on this topic. Many lenders will tell you to close at the end of the month so that you have to pay less in per diem interest for the money borrowed from the bank. However, if the extra cash out of pocket is not the biggest concern I would recommend closing at a slower time of the month as your lender and closing attorney will not be as busy. This will help in getting you the closing date and time you want and should make the whole process less stressful. Of course, if you are a cash buyer then timing is not a big issue, but I would still pick a time of the month other than the end so as to not be caught up with those getting loans.
