Hire a real estate agent. Do some research on the U.S. Census site for neighborhood info. Stop asking strangers to plan your life for you.

Just for kicks, I went to the Census site. I learned that the median household income in Bumcombe county is $36k and the average person commutes 21 minutes. Noted no info re: desireable neighborhoods. "Get" must be much more adept at mining data from that site than I.

I'm sure someone with more knowledge of the area will help you. An area called Biltmore Forest is considered quite desireable. I personally like the neighborhood that stretches from Merrimon avenue up toward the Grove Park Inn. The old houses are beautiful and you might actually be walking distance from some things. I fear the prices may be HIGH!

Stacey go to google.com and type in relocation. It's not rocket science.

My parents live in Asheville, beautiful city, low crime, great schools (etc.). The best place to live is the Merrimon Road area, near Charlotte St. You can find some really nice places in this area at a relatively low cost. Closer to the University and further from the Grove Park will be cheaper. Also, if it's your style, there are some great places downtown; old warehouse buildings coverted to apartments or condominiums as well as several renovated houses Good Luck!!
