Lake Keowee Christmas week is finally here! Time for us to take a break and run around like chickens with our heads cut off trying to make it to all of the parties, functions, recitals, plays, drop-ins, gatherings and other various and sundry commitments, getting presents for everyone we love (and maybe just like a little), trying not to overeat every day (much less several times a day) all while maintaining the Christmas spirit. I’m going to change up what I think your family wants for Christmas this year. I think they want you to sell your Lake Keowee waterfront real estate. Like now. They want a place in Aspen or Jackson Hole or some such. You’re holding the entire family back. So, list your Lake Keowee waterfront real estate with us today and be the family hero this Christmas!
We’re still running hard, trying to finish out 2021 with a bang and to be brutally frank, we’re pulling it off quite nicely. We are working to put a condo and a Lake Keowee waterfront lot under contract before Christmas day. No big closings this week, had to take a break at some point. We expect to hit the ground running in 2022 with the bit of inventory and a big push to get more Lake Keowee waterfront real estate to sell you other guys. There are still plenty of buyers in the market scouring every outlet to find something to buy.
We hope y’all have a great holiday season and a Merry Christmas. No blog next week so we’ll see/ write at you next year!!!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!
How to Sell Your Home For The Highest Price Possible
Here’s how to avoid mistakes that could cost hundreds, even thousands of dollars, when you sell your home.
The old notion of caveat emptor – “buyer beware” – has been turned on its head. Lately, with all of the talk about “buyers’ markets” and “changing real estate values,” as well as the myriad complexities and legal ramifications of today’s real estate transaction, a more appropriate sentiment may be “seller beware.”
For Sale By Owner vs. Hiring an Agent
Many homeowners believe that to get the most money out of their home sale they should sell it themselves, thereby saving the commission they would otherwise pay to a broker. Indeed, approximately one-fourth of hoem sellers each year do not use a real estate broker and about 72 percent of those are happy with the results they achieved.
However, close to half of that 72 percent also stated that the next time around they would hire a real estate agent to help them sell. Why?
For many, the time, paperwork, research and hassles involved in getting their home sold on their own were not worth the amount of money they saved in commissions to a broker.
For others, by the time they figured in the amount of fees paid to outside consultants, lawyers, inspectors, appraisers, and title, escrow and loan officers as well as marketing, advertising and other services and vendors, they may as well have paid the broker’s fee, which may have included some of these charges up front.
Some will also have discovered that the cost of recovering from a misstep or bad decision based on inexperience or lack of guidance more than outweighed the amount they saved in real estate agent fees.
