You’ve probably heard the phrase “If it bleeds it leads.” Newspapers love to scare the pants off of us with terrible news so it’s great to open up the paper and see articles such as Local home sales on pace to pass 2013 total (even though that’s about the Greenville area, another market altogether) and June job openings hit 13-year high. These are the kind of headlines that make a beautiful day such as today even better. I just may start singing Zippity Doo Dah! After what seems like 10 years of Chicken Little proclamations (re: the sky is falling) concerning the economy, it’s been great to see that the stories have turned the corner. It’s our belief that this has a lot to do with how I, you and most of us feel about the state of our Lake Keowee housing market. Don’t get me wrong, there are still plenty of heart wrenching economic stories out there, but to me at least there now seem to be more good than bad and that certainly couldn’t have been said with a straight face a few years back.
As for our Lake Keowee real estate week, it’s been contract to close class as we work hard to keep our 12 closing sides on track to the finish line. Fortunately we’ve had enough time to put another 2 lots and a town home under contract and add two new lot listings. It is still summer regardless as to what my kids say!
With such things as the articles above hitting the newspaper and relaxation of many loan requirements we believe Lake Keowee real estate will (barring anything ludicrous…like the sky falling) continue it’s slow and steady recovery (can I be anymore cagey while still being positive? Forgive me, it’s been a long road.)
