Those of you in this general area, what are your thoughts about Ashville as a retirement destination as oppossed to Raleigh/Durham. What are the real estate opportunities there and how good is access to healthcare. I am looking at making a trip out that way in early November and want to know what are the hot spots. If this is the place for retirement I am thinking of trying to buy a place now while still gainfully employed and prepare for retirment in the next 5 years. Would love to hear from those of you that are already in Ashville or those of you in Raleigh as well.
