Lake Keowee Real Estate Expert Blog Halfway Home
2022 is now halfway over around Lake Keowee (Happened quick, didn’t it?) and a strange half-a-year it’s been. We keep thinking that Lake Keowee real estate might cool off a bit, but it hasn’t. Sellers have slowed, yes. Buyers on the other hand have not. Pretty much as soon as we get a Lake Keowee property up and, on the market, we get it under contract. We’ve got to say, that’s the way we like it.
Reality is this situation, like all situations doesn’t last forever. There will be a turning point. Hopefully, it will be gentle. With the lack of inventory odds are that will be the case as there don’t appear to be sellers in great numbers ready to sell making it less likely to have not enough buyers as was the case in 2010. How will it affect values? In the short term we expect them to stay up barring any big shock to the system (wars, terrorist attacks and the like). In the long term there are many factors that will play a role. Will employers push hard for employees to return to the office? Will interest rates level off and go back down? Will Russia invade more countries? How long will we have high inflation? And the list goes on.
Where does that leave us right now? Plenty of Lake Keowee real estate buyers, not enough Lake Keowee waterfront inventory. That’s where you come in. If you own and have thought it’d be a good time to take advantage of the run up in prices. Now is probably a good time to sell. If you are a buyer, let us set you up on an automatic search being very clear on what you are looking for and how much you are prepared to spend. What you are looking for is the easier part, how much it will cost you is where the rubber meets the road.
