Affordable Waterfront Lot on Lake Hartwell

by Jay Hufnagel
Just Reduced! Fantastic Waterfront Lot on Lake Hartwell in very nice Subdivision (1114 Bay Dr, Fair Play, SC 29643) .  Located just 2 minutes from I-85, exit #4, this lot is nestled between two Beautiful Homes, but still has its own Privacy. With the lake level down approximately 5.5 ft (April 22, 2009), there is currently no water under the “almost new” 10x20’ Platform Dock… and the Lot is priced accordingly. Seller estimates that at full pool there will be approximately 4-5’ of water at the dock. Take advantage of this excellent opportunity to own Waterfront Property (at a great price) and build your Lake Hartwell Dream Home.

Lake Lanier 2008 Waterfront Real Estate Sales Activity

by Jay Hufnagel
Thank you to all of you that have been praying for rain. As of today, January 7, 2009, Lake Lanier is less then 17 feet below full pool, and it’s expected to improve by at least 2 feet by the weekend. Stacy Shelton, from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, wrote Tuesday, January 6, 2009, Lake Lanier rises nearly 2 feet since early Tuesday. The article has some great quotes in it from John Feldt (National Weather Service).
 
If you haven’t already signed up to receive email updates from the 1071 Coalition, I strongly urge you to do so. This group is dedicated to driving a coalition of support for a full pool (1071 feet above sea level) and a healthy Lake Lanier.

Lake Keowee 2008 Waterfront Home and Lot Sales

by Jay Hufnagel
Lake Keowee, just north of Seneca, South Carolina, still reigns as one of the most premier lakes in the Southeast. People ask, what is the difference between Lake Keowee and Lake Hartwell? As you may know, Lake Keowee is not as big as Hartwell, but many Keowee home owners find that there’s a different culture, a different look, a different price, and a big difference in the way it’s managed. Lake Keowee is managed by Duke Energy. Rick Spruill, wrote a good article in the Anderson Independent-Mail on December 27, 2008, Keowee and Hartwell: Drought brings differences to the surface. Rick does a great job in explaining how each lake is managed. As for me, I love both lakes ….. cause I’m a lake guy.
 
Here are some statistics on Lake Keowee waterfront Real Estate activity for 2008 (Based on information from the Western Upstate MLS for the period January 1, 2008 through December 31, 2008, and does not include FSBO and non SC Upstate MLS listed properties):

Lake Hartwell 2008 Real Estate Sales

by Jay Hufnagel
Wow! Have you been watching the lake level since we’ve had some rain in the last few weeks? In September, Larry Orr from the US Army Corps of Engineers, said that "if we didn’t have much rain that the lake could be down 28 feet or more". As of the newspaper today, January 7, 2009, the lake is down only 18 feet and probably will improve by a couple more feet within the next week. As lake property owners and stakeholders, we shouldn’t let our guard down. I urge you to stay in touch with the “Save Our Lakes Now” program, and notify our government leaders and the US Army Corps of Engineers that we want more attention and focus on getting and keeping our lake to full pool. Juan Brown wrote an interesting special column in the Anderson Independent Mail, January 4, 2009, When lakes reach full pool again, what then? I urge you to read it.
