Coming to a Boil Lake Keowee Real Estate Expert Blog
The Lake Keowee Real estate market has the heat under it now. It’s starting its inevitable climb to full boil over the next 60 days from which it will slowly mellow to a steady simmer. As always this time of year sellers have to be geared up for the boil. It’s when you will get the most potential buyers as well as the most legitimate competition.
During the boil, if you’re listed and not getting showings the market is telling you that you are priced too high. If you are getting lots of showings and no offers, what can you change about your property that might make the difference? What are the potential buyers telling you, is it an easy fix? If so, why wait? Fix it. If it’s a difficult or expensive fix, think hard about adjusting the price to make folks look past the issue. We’ve done it plenty and we can help you with this.
Properties will sell after the boil, too, but the same principles still apply. If you are listed and you get past the boil it doesn’t mean it’s over, just that you need to reevaluate your position. Take a look at your competition, take a look at what has sold, and make the appropriate changes. Success will be determined by your willingness and ability to adapt!
