Real Estate Purchase Consultation Service

Make an Informed Decision About Your Mountain Real Estate Purchase with the Help of ACM Design

Have you been searching for the future site of the home of your dreams? At ACM Design, we have the expertise to evaluate prospective properties and the challenges they present, as well as the creative vision to see the potential of each option. From buildable lots to homes in need of renovation, our team has the technical knowledge to reconcile your design ideas with your construction budget goals before you close on the property.

Real estate is an investment and, oftentimes, it is an emotional decision as well. This is why we offer property consultations for those looking to buy an existing home in the Blue Ridge Mountain area. As experienced architects with an intimate knowledge of the region we can help you evaluate the possibilities for updating existing properties for potential purchase in ways that no other professional can.

Our Real Estate Purchase Consultation can help you with the following:

  • Evaluate prospective properties and identify potential design possibilities and challenges
  • Determine which property is more suitable from a building perspective to realize the home you’re envisioning
  • Offer our creative vision and design ideas to help you see the possibilities and potential that might otherwise be overlooked by a less experienced eye
  • Firsthand knowledge of local building costs
  • Technical knowledge to determine if the work required can be accomplished with your budget
  • Estimated overall cost of purchase factoring in calculations for desired renovations

These consultations are an investment in your future dream home. You have the opportunity to work directly with our principal architect, Amy Conner-Murphy, and view the prospective properties through her expert lens. She will provide insightful recommendations based on the hopes, wants, dreams, and needs that you share with her.

What kinds of properties are eligible?

  • Buildable lots in new mountain communities
  • Buildable lots in existing mountain communities
  • Existing homes in need of renovation, updates, and modifications
  • Your current home in comparison with any of the above options

If you find yourself wondering, should I renovate? Is designing a new custom home on an undeveloped lot worth the investment? Are the homes I’m considering worth renovating? Would it be easier to design an addition to my existing home?  We are here to help. You select two properties and we will compile a detailed, written analysis for your review.

Although a property evaluation is not a prerequisite for you to choose ACM Design as your team of architects and interior designers, we do feel strongly that it is the best way to start the process for developing a home design plan. If you are struggling to find a direction on your property purchase, consider investing in a Property Consultation from ACM Design Architecture & Interiors to help you make an informed decision about your next home or property purchase. Our extensive experience in both custom home design and interior design enables us to envision the possibilities inside the shell of any structure or on an empty lot. By investing in a Property Consultation upfront, ACM Design can help you determine which property will be best suited to your needs.  Contact us today to discuss your project.

Considerations for Build-ability on a Mountainside Lot

You’ve decided you want to live in the mountains, but how do you find the perfect property?  There are many crucial considerations that come with building a home in the mountains — from the basics of access and utilities to the fundamentals of building on a slope to the feasibility of putting your dream home on the available land in proximity to shopping and medical facilities.

Real Estate agents have a tremendous amount of experience with our local market, but if you are considering building a new mountain home or dramatically renovating or adding to an existing home, enlist the expertise of an architect to help you evaluate prospective properties before you buy. In addition to our property evaluation services, we’ve compiled several downloadable brochures that share insights about designing and building homes in a mountain setting.
