Last week brought about some insane news for the real estate industry, Zillow’s iBuying program has temporarily failed. For the last three years, Zillow was designing an online platform that would allow homeowners to receive an offer directly from Zillow to purchase their home. The company designed an algorithm, similar to the Zestimate, that would roughly determine the worth of a home, and then Zillow representatives would offer just below that value, often selling homeowners on the idea of an easy and brainless transaction.

The Haw Creek Community is located in a quaint valley of East Asheville, perched in the mountains of North Carolina. Settled in the early 1700’s, the name of the neighborhood stems from the many Hawthorne trees that thrived along the banks of the area’s creeks. Haw Creek was established as a farming municipality in its early years, however, it now is predominantly residential and  is host to over 2,500 residences, while still maintaining that rural feel.

 When it comes to owning a home, it has almost become a distant dream for younger generations, due to accrued student loans and a seemingly endless cycle of debt.
