Hey, It’s officially Lake Keowee Summer!
And summer everywhere else besides Lake Keowee, too, I suppose. Surprisingly, at least to me, summer just now officially started! Whoever made that decision was most definitely not from the South. We’ve been neck deep in summer for well over a month. Is it hotter earlier and earlier every year or am I just getting older and ornerier? I know what you’re saying, it’s all in my head and of course you are right but really where else is anything but in your head? (stop reading and think about that one for a bit)
Know what else should be in your head (besides the Cranberries song for the rest of the day)? Getting out on Keowee. If it’s not in your head it sure is in a lot of other folk’s heads as we remain on a “summertime” footing when it comes to Lake Keowee waterfront real estate. We’ve been able to add another great listing that is on the lake front, comes with a dock slip, and is under $500,000. Don’t see that very often these days. Chances are it won’t be around long in the current housing market around Lake Keowee as homes on the water under $500,000 are few and far between. That means if you’ve been looking for something like this one, you’d better call us immediately. Also, we put another million plus dollar home under contract along with an interior lot with boat slip. If we can keep this up every week of the year it’ll be a Merry Christmas!
There are a lot of good waterfront lots out there at reasonable prices, including two waterfront lots in the Waterford subdivision (close to Seneca, Clemson and an easy shot to Greenville). One at $149,000 with a full sized covered dock in place and another at $185,000 that is full sized dock-able and nicely wooded. With homes being snatched up so quickly, now is a great time to think about taking advantage of these type of lot prices.
Get out and enjoy the summer of 2019. It will be over before you know it and we’ll be on to FOOTBALL!

Beware of “splitting the difference”
For example, say you’re asking $200,000 and they offer you $180,000. You figured you’d probably only get $190,000 anyway so you split the difference and counteroffer $190,000. Rather than taking your offer, the buyer decides to play the same game and counters with $185,000.
Now you’re stuck. If you split again, you’re stuck making an offer that’s lower than your minimum. But if you reject it flat out, you may lose the deal!
