Lake Keowee Real Estate Expert Blog Quiet Week
Around Lake Keowee, about this time every year, we tend to have a bit of a slow weekend before the mad rush of summer blesses us with its presence. The kids have just gotten out of school and a lot of people are taking early summer family vacations leaving a bit less time to focus on searching for that perfect piece of Lake Keowee real estate. It usually doesn’t last long, but it does seem to occur pretty much every year. We expect even more folks are taking these vacations as we recover (we are recovering, right?) from the pandemic.
We’ve certainly noticed less activity over the past week though we were able to get a piece of Lake Keowee waterfront real estate under contract as well as closing a Clemson condo and a house. As it seems I’ve said every week for many weeks in a row that we are selling ourselves out of business as we quickly put the listings we get under contract almost as soon as we get them.
We’re workaholics so we are beyond anxious to work more and harder and sell every property out there so once again we’re pleading for your help. Sell your Lake Keowee real estate…we know it’s an incredible, beautiful lake and yours is one of the most special pieces of property on it and you are loath to let it go. But isn’t it time? Prices are high and it’s a seller’s market. It won’t last forever, and you just might be kicking yourself this time next year (who am I kidding, things are always better when you own property on Lake Keowee). Don’t always read everything in the parentheses.
