Lake Keowee July 4th Week!
It’s here. We’ve reached the pinnacle of the summer season on Lake Keowee. Every year this is the busiest time on Lake Keowee; the days that surround the July 4th festivities. Folks will be out on the Lake enjoying small fireworks displays from private individuals up to large displays created for the golf course communities. Not to mention a hamburger/hot dog/pimento cheese sammich or 3 in an effort to celebrate the signing of our Declaration of Independence from Great Britain in 1776 (bet some of you weren’t quite clear on why you were celebrating – now you can enlighten other folks over that burger).
It also means busy times for us here at Top Guns Realty, specifically Mike and Matt Roach, as we add a few more listings to the inventory and field numerous calls of interest in said inventory and other properties around the lake. We see a peak in internet and sales activity over the next 2 weeks; then, as story suggests, activity will begin to lessen as we approach the slowest (and saddest) times in real estate sales around Lake Keowee, the first quarter of the year.
We’ve been able to put two homes and a lot under contract over the past week continuing the run of weekly sales we always hope for this time of year. Thankfully, sales have remained strong throughout 2019 and will continue to so do – at least keep pace with the traditional sales arc. All indicators are that will be so.

If buyers are asking you to carry part of the financing, remember: Everything is negotiable.
You may agree to their proposed terms, but change the length of the loan or the interest rate. You may be able to strike a deal that benefits them by giving them lower payments or a lower down payment, while making you better profits in the long run.
Also, remember that timing isn’t always everything.
If the buyer’s moving plans conflict with yours, consider some alternatives:
- Change your plans.
- Move and rent until you can move into your new home.
- Stay and rent from the buyer.
- Pay the buyer a bonus to change their plans.
- Pay rent for the buyer until you can move out.
Consider how much the inconvenience is worth to sell your home.
