Lake Keowee Real Estate Expert Blog Still Winter
Maybe we teased you a bit too much last week with all of the (with short sleeves on) walking Lake Keowee lots, viewing Lake Keowee houses, shooting Lake Keowee videos, golfing on Lake Keowee golf courses and watching baseball near Lake Keowee (outside in the sun of course) so you’ve come back with a vengeance, trying to assert your dominance over the month of February as you’ve done for sooooo many February’s in the past. Well, how about just don’t snow on us? That’s always good for a week of getting nothing done and ending up with waaaaay to much milk and bread.
Fear not faithful blog readers! We’re not letting the cold weather and rain get us down. We are working on a house contract, a lot contract, listing 2 more homes and 2 more lots. It’s the time of year for listing property around Lake Keowee, getting it out there to take advantage of the selling season which will peak in July but will be here sooner than you think.
Many more buyers will start looking as soon as we get a few weekends like the last one. The more beautiful weekends the quicker the buyers show up (probably some kind of formula there – would require a lot of research – let’s take an educated guess at 3 sunny, warm weekends and the season is on!). The inventory of homes on the lake will creep up a little bit over the next few weeks in anticipation of more buyers in the market. The best time for you to list your home or lot is NOW. The best time for you to buy a home or lot is NOW. Before those 3 sunny, warm weekends have passed. It’s just science. Or math. Ok, history?
The college baseball season will begin this coming weekend and there is still plenty of college basketball to enjoy! If you lived on Lake Keowee you could easily enjoy the Clemson portion of it, in person! So many great things to do on and around Lake Keowee, even when it is still just a little bit chilly.
After answering all these questions, if you still feel that maybe you’d like to try to sell on your own, you may want to give yourself a time limit – just as you would give an agent in a listing agreement.
Then, after trying it on your own, if your home hasn’t sold, reevaluate your situation and consider whether you need to pursue other options.
Whatever the case, you always have the option to consult with several qualified agents and determine whether their services are worth the price you would pay.
In the vast majority of cases, they are.
