Keep a Coat in the Car
Old Man Winter obviously isn’t through with us just yet. It’s currently in the low 30’s and raining. Not real conducive for a pleasure cruise around Lake Keowee. We were able to get out on Saturday and tool around the lake for a bit but it was a little overcast and in the low 60’s. Then the rain and cold came (back) our way.
The good news is that early last week we were able to get out and shoot some new videos and spruce up many of our existing listings. Two of our waterfront lots got a “shave and a haircut” (2 bits) — which means we had them under-brushed. You wouldn’t believe what a noticeable difference it makes to have this simple procedure done on your for sale property! When you’re competing with several other properties in your price range you need as many chits in your favor as you can get. Making your lot look clean and presentable is one of the easiest and least expensive things you can get done, and it makes it MUCH easier for agents to show. Like an appraisal, we recommend that everyone get this done.
As for sales, keep it up. You guys with your fingers crossed for us are making things happen! We were able to put two more properties under contract last week as well as writing another offer (we need a few more of you to throw some salt over your shoulders as the offer fell through–please?).
Both listing activity and selling activity remain strong so far in 2014. The price range that continues to lag behind is the higher end ($900,000 and above). Still very few folks looking in that category, but we are hopeful the spring will bring them out of hiding!
