Here we are on Lake Keowee and it’s that time of year again, football rivalry week! Oh yeah, and Thanksgiving, the time to give thanks for all of the blessings of the previous year (self care tip: do it daily, it’s way more fun than grumping over the negative stuff). I’m gut is growling just thinking about the meal in my immediate future. I’m also getting excited about the football games to come this weekend. A renewal of the Clemson/Carolina rivalry is upon us! I expect quite the barn burner for this installment.
All of the above talk doesn’t mean we are not thinking about Lake Keowee real estate, of course we are. Another good week of closings as we’ve been able to close $3.36M in Lake Keowee lots and land over the past week. That’s A LOT. And there are still properties out there to sell. If you are a buyer, have us set you up on an automatic search so you can get the message as soon as a property that fits your criteria hits the market. If you are a seller, we are still WAY too low on what we’d like to have on hand in inventory. Give us a call and let us know what property you own. We’d be happy to go out and take a look, give you a value and then get her on the market. Again, If you’re not using your Lake Keowee property like you’d planned, now is a great time to cash it in. You can always buy again in the future!
We hope all y’all have a happy Thanksgiving and please know that we are thankful for you for reading our Lake Keowee Real Estate Expert Blog!
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.”
Clearly Know Why You Want to Sell
Do you want to “get the profit out” of an appreciated home? Are you moving to a new area or wanting a larger home? Whatever your reasons, there are sure to be a lot of emotions involved with the selling of such a personal investment.
The more you can separate the emotions from the actual goals you need to achieve, the better a position you can be in to evaluate your options and negotiate the best results.
Make sure that you’ve examined all of the alternatives and that selling is really the best decision in your situation.
Keep in mind that no matter how much you sell this house for, you’re still going to have to live somewhere.
Make sure that what you can afford to buy after the sale makes the process of selling worth it.
Your Realtor can help you not only by making you aware of all of the costs involved in selling and the approximate amount of profit you can realistically expect, but also by helping you research the area or home you’re interested in moving to and how much you’ll have to spend one the other end.
