Summer is Cruising Right Along
Man, this summer is absolutely vanishing! I guess that’s to be expected when you’re having such a blast! Time slides on by pell-mell. Must be why 48 has snuck up on me like a commando. Seems like just a couple of months back I was 24. Not only that, but I’m also perceiving time as moving faster on a daily basis (a double time whammy). I don’t know if any of you are experiencing the same thing but I know that the only thing that’s working for me on this is go with it! Try to have as much fun as you can so that in the end you’ll be like what a ride, what a rush, hope I left this place better than when I found it! Time for the pearly gates. To that end, I plan on spending more of this summer time on Lake Keowee with loved ones and so should you.
This week was a bit slower (I guess time is relative – ok, enough physics) than last week when it comes to moving real estate. We only put one lot under contract vs. the 13 sides of the previous week. Hey, if we did 13 sides a week we’d be retired and you’d all miss the Lake Keowee Real Estate Expert Blog like a desert misses the rain. Summer.
We continue to see summertime type traffic to our listings and fully expect to put a few of those under contract here soon. There’s still plenty of left summer and buyers a’plenty in the market. We’ve just got to keep everybody’s minds off of college football for a while longer.
Seller’s look above, buyers are out there. What can you do to your property to make it sparkle above and beyond the rest. Buyer’s now is a good time. You can be on Lake Keowee before the first kickoff!

29 Essential Tips That Get Homes Sold Fast (And For Top Dollar)
Tip #13 – Lucky Thirteen!
When you toured other people’s homes, you may have felt some discomfort. This probably occurred because you saw, heard or otherwise sensed something that made you feel as if you were intruding into someone’s life.
The last thing you want others to feel in vising your home is that same sense of discomfort. Avoid this by making your home as neutral as possible. Anything that interferes with a prospective buyers’ ability to see themselves living in your home must be eliminated. A few carefully chosen knickknacks and family portraits may add warmth and character to the home, too many are a distraction. Avoid unique or trendy color schemes – pain ant carpet in neutral shades or white or beige.
