Throughout Watauga County, there are various up-and-coming neighborhoods – as well as a few that have already been established – that are being developed. Many of them are filled with mountain lots of various sizes. Some come with building specifications, and others are a bit more open with their allowances for construction. I list and sell all kinds of real estate in the High County and you may see some available homes and lots in these great communities from time to time. This, of course, is by no means an extensive list as Watauga County is always growing and the construction and new development here has maintained its momentum, whereas, in other parts of the country, that has not been the case. Learn more about each of the great neighborhoods below and click around the site to find listings in places like Boone, Blowing Rock, Valle Crucis and throughout the other areas found in Watauga County.
