Keowee Expert Blog Life is Short
Mike and I said good bye to our father Steve Roach on Sunday as he passed last Thursday after a 7 hour open heart surgery. It was a shocking turn of events for all of us as we expected him to come out on the other side healthier and ready to travel the world. Unfortunately complications arose and that was his last living day on earth.
He will be missed, certainly by his family but also by the many friends he created over the 50 some odd years he spent in Florence, SC. We spent many an afternoon with Dad playing golf, hunting, fishing or just watching TV while he read. These are times that will never happen again and that is sad for us who remain behind. We love you Dad and will always miss you.
Anytime you lose someone close it’s a wake-up call. Take every day on as if it could be your last. Spend time with the ones you love whenever you can and find ways to make that happen that are fulfilling. Your next day on earth is not guaranteed nor are those of the people you care about. Been thinking about making that call? Go ahead and do it.

You have three choices when it comes to any offer presented to you:
- You can accept it as is.
- You can reject it.
- You can reject it and provide a counteroffer.
You cannot accept it an then make changes!
Realize that any time you reject a buyer’s offer, they have the right to walk away from the deal completely. Therefore, if an offer is very close to what you want, you may be making a mistake to counteroffer and insist on having your cake and eating it too.
You risk losing what may be a sure deal.
The most common areas in which you may wish to counteroffer are price, terms, occupancy and contingencies.
Remember that any time you make a counteroffer – even in just one area – you reject the buyer’s offer and they may decide to counteroffer by making changes in some other area as well.
