School’s back in session around Lake Keowee! Families are surging forward with their kid’s education here in SC doing whatever it takes for the next generation to get ready for the lives they want to live. Some are learning from home while many others are back in the class room. That leaves less time for families to get out on Lake Keowee, which usually signals a slowing of activity for Lake Keowee real estate…or so one would think!
We continue to be extremely busy. Over the past week we’ve made 7 offers on Lake Keowee property and one in Clemson. We’ve been able to turn those offers into contracts 4 times so far and have taken a listing. People seem to be anxious to get their piece of Lake Keowee heaven, a trend that doesn’t look to be slowing. It’s possible the cold weather may ebb the run we’re on but hopefully not. Life is good when we’re busy! Wouldn’t hurt for more folks to want to sell, though. But I guess you can’t have everything…where would you put it?
For all of you folks who’ve been sitting around, waiting for that time to put your Lake Keowee waterfront property on the market, wait no longer. The time is here and now. We’ve got an overflow of assertive buyers to appease so give us a call or email us and let us tell you what the market could bring for your property .
“Curb appeal” isn’t just catchy real estate jargon. It recognizes the fact that many buyers form their first, and often strongest, opinions before they step out of the car. Remember, buying a home is first and foremost an emotional commitment, especially for first-time buyers. You may have a long list of logical reasons your home is a good catch, but a buyer is reacting emotionally to what he or she is seeing.
Knowing this, you can use a buyer’s emotions to your advantage. First, take a good, hard look at the first impression your property makes. What do people see? If it’s flaking paint and an unkempt front yard, they may be seeing a home that needs a lot of work.
More next week….
