Lake Keowee’s 2021 year in real estate will be written by the eventual supply of properties to the market. So far, we have been able to continue a positive trend, adding inventory early in the week and putting that same inventory under contract a few days later. Regrettably, at the current pace of sales, a broad variety of properties to choose from will not be in the cards anytime soon.
That’s OK though as we were able to add 3 new Lake Keowee waterfront lot listings over the past week, putting those three under contract along with a condo during that same period. Yes, 3 Lake Keowee lots and a condo. That extremely hungry market went to town on them like the shark from Jaws did on Quint. I’d like to say we had 3 more to put on the market this week, but we only have one and we fully expect it to be under contract by this time next week.
So, what does this mean to you? Obviously, it depends on your situation. If you are a buyer looking for that perfect piece of Lake Keowee real estate, you are going to need to be both patient and assertive. Weird, huh? If you are a potential seller, now is a fantastic time to maximize the sales price of your property and we can help you with that. Give us a call 864-270-9186 or email [email protected] or [email protected]. We’d be happy to let you know what we think the market will think about your Lake Keowee real estate. We think.
29 Essential Tips That Get Homes Sold Fast (And For Top Dollar)
Selling your home is one of the most important steps in your life. Here are 29 essential tips you must know…
For most people, selling their home means cashing in their biggest asset. In other words, it must be handled with great care if you hope to protect – and capitalize on – your investment.
This guide was written with on goal in mind: to give you the tools you need to maximize your profits, maintain control, and reduce the stress that comes with the home selling process.
Top #7 Find a good Realtor.
Nearly two-thirds of the people who sell their own home say they wouldn’t do it themselves again, according to research by the National Association of Realtors. Sellers surveyed point to difficulties in setting a price, marketing handicaps and liability concerns among the primatry reasons they would turn to a Realtor next time. And selling a home yourself usually eats up more time and effort than you might initially expect.
Once you understand how much work it will be to sell it yourself, talk to a Realtor you trust even if you decide to strike out on your own. Many top professionals are more than willing to help do-it-yourself sellers with the paperwork, contract, etc. Plus you’ll have a relationship with an agent if problems do arise that require professional help.
If you decide to work with a Realtor, contact for or five – you probably met a few that you liked during your open house tour. Explain to each that you’re thinking about putting your home on the market and you’d like to meet to talk about pricing and marketing. By having this group “evaluation” done, you should end up with a fairly tight price range to help guide your decision. Any Realtor who is substantially higher or lower than the group should be able to justify their estimate. Just as you should be concerned with too low of a price, beware of an agent who give you the highest price – they may be trying to buy your listing.
A good Realtor knows the market and your neighborhood in particular. They will supply you with information on past sales, current listings, a marketing plan, something on their own background, and references from past clients. Take the time to carefully evaluate candidates on the basis of their experience, qualifications, enthusiasm, and personality. Most importantly, make sure you choose someone who is going to put in a lot of hard work on your behalf.
