Keowee Expert Golf Fever
We’ve had some really terrific weather lately that have benefitted the golf courses around Lake Keowee recently and they are showing out. If you’re fond of chasing the title white ball, you probably know of the 5 golf courses in the communities surrounding Lake Keowee. Whether you do or not, here is a quick run-down. The Cliffs Communities are made up of several different golf communities between Lake Keowee and Asheville, NC. The ones that are on Lake Keowee are The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards, The Cliffs at Keowee Springs and The Cliffs at Keowee Falls. The Reserve at Lake Keowee has one golf course and Keowee Key has a freshly renovated golf course as well. So if you enjoy teeing it up and want to be on Lake Keowee, you have some superb courses to choose from and trust me, you really can’t make a bad choice here. Mike and I are members of the Cliffs (for over 23 years now) as well as formally being members of Keowee Key and have sold property in all of these communities including working onsite sales for The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards. Mike was the food and beverage manager for Keowee Key just after graduating from Clemson back in the late 80’s and I used to tour marketing guests back in 1988. Long story short – we’d be happy to tell you it all in more detail but despite my revered ability to spin a good yarn, it might be a bit boring. Let’s suffice to say we know the inside details when it comes to selling you a golf property around Lake Keowee.
How is business? I know you’re dying to know though you probably can surmise the answer. We’re doing great! We’ve closed $1.4M in houses in the last week and are closing another $1.66M tomorrow. We’ve also been able to put 2 waterfront lots under contract over the past week. Did you know that over the last 5000 days we’ve sold more than twice as many waterfront lots as any other agent or team? Well, now you do…just in case you’re ever on Jeopardy.
Choose your escrow company carefully.
Consider their fees, recommendations from others who’ve used them, location (since you’ll most likely have to go to their office to sign the final papers), and sized (a large staff doesn’t always mean a better company, but it may mean quick and efficient service).
Determine before you sign a listing or sales agreement whether it contains clauses or wording requiring you to use a certain escrow company.
While the escrow officer is never “on your side,” you want to make sure that person isn’t on someone else’s side either.
Make sure your buyer has been approved for financing ahead of time. Otherwise delays in the loan-approval process can extend your closing.
Investigate whether your property may be subject to any liens which may impede title transfer.
Particularly if you have owned your home for a long time, there may be liens attached from the past that your weren’t aware of.
Make sure all necessary inspections are completed by qualified inspectors.
