Spring? Sure Feels Like It, Don’t It?
It will reach a balmy 75 degrees today (certainly Spring like temperatures) around Lake Keowee with the 10 day forecast looking like something out of May, not February. I guess the only logical thing we can do is take advantage of the situation and get out and about on the Lake. Maybe this is the new normal — abnormal. It has, after all, been confirmed that South Carolina weather follows it’s own rules. But that can make it tough to decide when you need long pants or shorts (when in doubt, err towards shorts).
We’re seeing the activity level ratchet up already as we get more calls from folks ready to make a move in anticipation of the upcoming selling season. If it feel like Spring why not act like it’s Spring Some are buyers wanting to get a place before the season to use it has passed while others are sellers looking to upgrade one Lake Keowee property for another. We’ll be listing 3 townhomes this week, 2 in the Harbour Pointe subdivision and one in Keowee Key. These are great opportunities for folks to get in the Lake Keowee area at a reasonable price with all being less than $400,000. Don’t think we’re not dealing with the buyers as well as we put a $700,000 plus house under contract over the past week and are working on putting another similarly priced home under contract as well as a waterfront lot.
We’ll be posting a few new video this week so make sure you check out our YouTube channel. Even subscribe to it so you can get notified when they hit the Web. As we go through the Spring we’ll add the most videos of the year.
I guess I’ve got to take the tarp off of the Jet Ski and make sure there is gas in the pontoon. Alas, the trials and tribulations of selling Lake Keowee real estate.
- Do I fully understand the steps and legal/tax ramifications of selling a home?
- Am I prepared and able to deal with buyers – especially those who see FSBOs as ready targets for low-ball bids?
- Do I have the time and ability to devote my energy and efforts to everything that selling a home requires?
- Do I have a plan for handling the legal contracts and agreements involved as well as any disputes with buyers both before and after an offer is presented?
- Have I researched financing options that buyers will need and expect information about?
- Have I contacted all necessary professionals, including a real estate attorney, a home inspector and a termite inspector, etc., and agreed with each on their specific parts of the deal?
If you are a first-time seller, these questions are even more important since you haven’t been through the process before.
