Until Christmas, that is. We trust everyone had a Thanksgiving to remember. I have to say ours was quite fantastic, in fact, it bordered on phantasmagorical (I love my thesaurus)! While Mike spent most of his time in town, I took the family to Florida to visit the in-laws. That gave me an opportunity to take the kids to Lego Land 5 times in 6 days! They loved it, they’re the perfect age for that place. Fortunately Lake Keowee real estate didn’t implode without me being around (which was quite the blow to my ego). The reality is you can be in Florida and still be merely seconds away in this business. “Kids, go ride that upside down roller coaster that’s on fire – I’ll be taking this phone call/responding to emails/writing an awesome blog entry.” I guess that’s the nice thing about working on Lake Keowee real estate, it’s the slower time of year making it easier to do such (absurd) things.
To the business at hand: how are things going? For us, good, could be better, but we’re always looking to make it better. We are still working hard to get your property in front of every eye that’s looking and are seeing continued good numbers of video views, web site views, etc., though most of those folks are looking towards the future, specifically next year, but hopefully early next year! There are a number of rumblings out there that higher interest rates may very well be in our immediate future. Most of the rumblers seem to be leaning in the neighborhood of about 5% by the end of 2016, but hopefully the housing market can take the bump. By historical standards, 5% is still really low but it will knock some folks out of the market – maybe it will get some of the smarter ones off their duffs.
