Beautiful Around Keowee This Time of Year!
Have you been outside today around Lake Keowee? If not, stop reading. Go outside. I’ll wait. Or better yet, keep reading and walk outside. Just be careful not to trip over the dog or break your neck (wouldn’t that be a peach? A lawsuit caused by a blog trying to get folks to go outside). But seriously, look around you. It’s simply stunning. Crystal clear blue skies, 60 and 70 degree temperatures. Makes me want to do my “outdoor” thing. Like enjoying Lake Keowee’s myriad of water sports, or hiking trails, or golf courses (if you’re in New York for the PGA tournament – bet you wish they were holding it here on Lake Keowee).
We are excited by the continued level of activity as we keep adding new listings, putting properties under contract and taking out lots of folks to look at even more extremely impressive Lake Keowee property. We are busy busy, as expected. For us Lake Keowee realtors, we’ve got to “make hay while the sun shines” both literally and figuratively.
Over the past week we’ve put another $2,000,000+ in property under contract as well as closing just under $2,000,000. Our web site is being reviewed like a prize schnauzer at the Westminster Dog Show and our property videos are being viewed at a clip of 60-85 per day (that’s a lot of face time for your property – but only if you‘re listed with Top Guns Realty, of course).
Let’s keep it going! Tell your friends it’s time to buy or sell a Lake Keowee property today. And make sure you tell them to call us at 866-371-2911.
Check out the video update for May below as well as the updated number presentations and Lake Keowee News.
Take a proactive approach to looking at any offer that comes your way.
Review each offer in the following order:
- Deposit. How much and who has it? Is it a sufficient deposit to indicate a serious offer?
- Price. How does the amount offered compare to your asking price and your private bottom line?
- Down Payment. Cash? If not, why?
- Terms. Is it a new first loan? Are they requesting seller financing? How do these terms affect your profits?
- Occupancy. How soon do you have to move out?
- Contingencies. Are there any listed? If so, what are they and how do they affect your profits?
In some cases you may want to have your real estate attorney look over the offer. That’s fine if you want to be safe and have him or her explain complex clauses and protect your position.
Just be sure that your attorney doesn’t hedge your bets so closely that you lose a potentially good sale or insist that the deal so heavily favor you that no buyer would be interested.
