With the COVID-19 virus has come a run on Keowee waterfront property. Many are looking for a place to get away from cramped quarters and spikes of infections and instead find a safer, more peaceful lifestyle. Infection rates in Oconee County currently sit at 570 confirmed cases with 3,501 estimated cases out of a population of 80,248 or .7% confirmed to have the virus. Infection rates in Pickens County are at 1428 confirmed cases with 8772 estimated cases out of a population of 127,437 or 1.1% of the population confirmed to have the virus. Not trying to fan the flames of fear, just sharing CDC numbers. It is what it be.
On to business: we were able to cobble together 5 deals this past week with Lake Keowee waterfront homes and 3 Lake Keowee waterfront lots. We put in offers on two other homes, but were beaten out by others who were willing to pay a bit more. Of course I’m not complaining. Any week with $2,696,000 in volume is a good one, even if it is one of the 3 busiest weeks of the year.
