Wow! It looks like the year is starting off pretty good for Lake Hartwell Real Estate (source: SC Western Upstate MLS). So far (as of 4-8-2010) 26 waterfront homes have sold in 2010 and 18 are currently under contract (out of 397 homes active on the market). As you can see by the link below, the majority of the activity is below $350,000 with some great deals under $200,000.  From experience and knowing what has been on the market in earlier years, some of these Lake Hartwell Homes have sold for half of what they were on the market less then 2 years ago.

Lake Hartwell Waterfront lake lots haven’t had the success that homes have had. Only 2 waterfront lots have sold and 3 are under contract (out of 340 lots active on the market). Buyers are finding that they can get such a great deal on resale homes right now with great interest rates, that buying a lot doesn’t make that much sense to them, unless they’re getting a huge discount.

Whether you’re buying a home or lot, “now” is a wonderful time to buy.
