Lake Keowee Real Estate Expert Blog Feeling Festive!
Lake Keowee is replete with Christmas decorations, parades are happening all around, cities and towns have their decorations up, and the locals are giddy with excitement! It’s that festive time of year. All of the lights twinkling almost make it OK that the sun goes down at 5:30. The weather around Keowee has been phenomenal as well with some cooler days and some others in the 70’s allowing folks to get out and about on the water. Puts a big fat smile on your face just thinking about all of the positivity afoot.
For Top Guns Realty, Mike and Matt Roach we are putting the finishing touches on the best year of selling Lake Keowee property we’ve ever had. We closed just shy of $4M in Lake Keowee real estate last week and have a couple more properties to close before year’s end. We’ve also added some special listings including a $5.8M home in The Reserve. It’s really something; check it out here: 102 Wedge Court.
We’re always looking for ways to improve our advertising and the presentation of our listings. Over the past year Zillow’s 3D home has been a big help with increasing the number of views we’ve gotten on our listings through their service. We expect to see some new technologies hitting the real estate market in 2022 and hope to get even closer to creating the situation where you consumers can spend less time driving around and more time going directly to the Lake Keowee home or lot you will purchase. We were the first to bring aerial videos and 360 degree videos to Lake Keowee, so stay tuned because trailblazing is in our blood…much more to come!
- the level of supply and demand in the current local market,
- the condition and features of the house itself,
- current sales prices of comparable properties in the area,
- the condition and features of the neighborhood.
As you can see, very few of those things are within your control. However, you’ll be in a much better position to make the most of your sale if you at least have a full understanding of all the elements involved.
All of the economic realities that affect your home’s market value are reflected in the prices of recently sold homes.
Your real estate agent should provide you with a complete comparative market analysis showing the listing and sales prices and the features of other homes similar to yours in the area that have sold recently as well as the features and listing prices of homes currently for sale.
The report should also reflect the length of time each of these homes have been on the market.
No matter how much you think you may have already learned from talking to neighbors and looking at ads in the local papers, seeing the hard, cold facts is still usually surprising to most sellers. You’re likely to find that the people you talked to tended to “round off” or exaggerate the prices they bought or sold for.
