Its a beautiful place, weather is great, people so pleasant however, to live there when moving from NJ / NY metro area ( Bergen County) is not the answer. I see tons of houses with poor quality over priced, no good places to shop, not even a Macy's. Bad food, maybe a few good places but not like here and overpriced housing. I can't see living in a county where the median age is 39 and most of the people make less than 20,000 a year. I also feel the housing market will not hold its value with no corporate businesses coming in. Its a GREAT PLACE TO RETIRE, great place to vacation but to move from NY metro area where you own a house that is worth a lot and to move there and MUST GO TO FIND A JOB not possible. I did love the mountains, too bad. RETIRE TO ASHEVILLE!!!!!!!!!
