Lake Keowee Expert Blog Graduation Season
It’s the time of year when colleges and universities hold commencement ceremonies and a shiny new group of freshly minted college grads hits the job market, but before they do that they go on vacation around Lake Keowee. Remember those days? When you thought school was prison only to realize (a few years later) that you were actually never more free?
With those adult responsibilities you do earn the benefit of acquiring money (at least for a small portion of them). And with said money you can do great adult things like purchase a Lake Keowee waterfront property for your college grads to enjoy while you are at work. Isn’t that grand?
Well, if you feel that way you are doing it wrong. You need to be taking more time to enjoy life yourself. Take some time to smell the roses (or the coffee depending upon your preferred metaphor). Do one better, get some roses (or some really expensive coffee) for your significant other and plan a really special day/evening on Lake Keowee (no need to limit this to just a significant other). There are a ton of things you can do, let your imagination take flight.
For example, how about go to your local grocery store and pick up a picnic spread. Then head to the lake, hop on your boat, Jet Ski or just go to one of the many public parks. Find your own space, relax and take it all in (I’d suggest leaving your phone in the car).
As for us, we’re going to work hard yet again this week, listing and selling Lake Keowee real estate. Then we’re going to take our own advice and play hard, as well! Don’t let the kids have all of the fun. We’re better at it anyway!

Some flexibility may be required.
Your real estate agent can help you understand all of the implications of price versus yields and terms. In some cases, you may decide to save a deal by giving the buyer his price while working out terms that are even more favorable to you.
