How’s business? Very good. Thanks for asking. It’s been an above average November and looks to be a good December. We closed on a couple of properties over the past week and put another Lake Keowee waterfront real estate lot under contract. We’ve also been out to a few more potential listings that we expect to get on the market soon.
Folks are less likely to go out for a day on Lake Keowee currently. There are plenty of those die-hard fishermen out there doing their best impression of Nanook of the North (it’s amazing what clothing manufacturers can do with modern fabrics to keep us warm), but very few folks are just cruising around for the giggles. There will be some of that in a couple of weeks as we will have a few communities doing their annual Christmas lights on your boat show. Those are fun to watch from the shore, a little more taxing from the water (see Arctic literary character reference above), but fun for folks who are willing to go the extra mile in extending the Christmas spirit.
How’s business? Slower than we’d like though as to be expected this time of year. We are still getting good activity on listings even for this time of year and have some buyers getting very close to making decisions. We are also still in need of more listings. We’ve stated exactly that repeatedly in the past and you’ve responded beautifully…do it again?
The great news is the views are opening and you can get a much better idea of the overall look of a Lake Keowee piece of land or home with those pesky leaves on the ground instead of in the trees. We’ve listed a few spectacular lots over the couple of weeks and they are begging for you buyers to come out and see them in their leafless glory. Check out Lot 56 Point Harbor, Lot 5 Laurel Ridge, and Lot 6 Laurel Ridge. We also have a couple of houses we hope to get on the market soon, probably sometime soon after the Thanksgiving holiday.
Finally, we are going to get some nice cold weather around Lake Keowee. Over the next few days, the weatherman is calling for highs in the 50’s with some frost warnings at night. Lookout, we might be heading deep into a southern winter. In a month or so we might even have a freeze warning. Probably too much to ask for a white Christmas. But let’s do it anyway. Please, Old Man Winter, give us a white Christmas (just for a day – not real big on long snow events, we just want to borrow some snow for a little while).
The bad news is we only have a couple of new listings to take pictures of. Everything is lining up except you fence sitters. Now is a great time to put your Lake Keowee home or lot on the market as there are still plenty of buyers in the market. We can help you by letting you know the current value of your home. I know you didn’t get to Lake Keowee nearly enough to support the investment you’ve made. We can help and we can do it right now!
The views around Lake Keowee are absolutely stunning this time of year. The air is crisp and the leaves are going into full-on exquisite mode. The change in air temperature has also led to the lake fog effect giving us those gorgeous Lake Keowee mornings with thick mist dancing on the water. Just have to love this time of year!
Even though it’s still warm around Lake Keowee we are starting to see the first hints of the colors to come (and the warm days are turning into cooler nights, which is nice). We are seeing spectacular, clear blue skies days making it the perfect time to get out on Lake Keowee and enjoy the last vestiges of the 2023 Lake Keowee season (who knows, you might even want to purchase your own place to take advantage of the fall colors and have a great place to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas or sell what you’ve got since you won’t get out as much over the winter).
We are hopeful that business will continue as it has over this entire year. We’re looking at closing over $1M in Lake Keowee lots over the remainder of the week. After that things get a bit slower as the inventory remains lower than the number of perspective buyers. It’s still a great time for you potential sellers and if history is any indicator, folks love to look at Lake Keowee real estate in the fall. The views begin to open and you can walk up and down multiple properties without having to change your shirt.
We get a Lake Keowee listing, we get it sold. Quickly. How quickly? There…that quickly. That’s been the theme lately. The fast turn-around time on listings of Lake Keowee property has led to a great situation for you potential sellers. Let’s say you’ve been sitting on that Lake Keowee waterfront lot (or interior with boat slip) for years, hoping to do something with it but never finding the time. Well, maybe now is the time to turn it around quickly and get maximum dollars before the end of 2023 and the presidential election year of 2024. This also works for Lake Keowee waterfront or interior homes, by the way.
