Real Estate activity with waterfront Lake Hartwell homes have started to warm up. Now if we can get the weather to warm a little, things would be really great. As you may know, the lake level has come up with all the rain we’ve been getting. The Corps should manage it so it’ll full by May 1st.  With the Stock Market and Consumer Confidence growing it’s looking like 2015 may be another banner year for Lake Sales. Unfortunately, the Inventory of listed homes is down. If lake front home owners want to sell their home, “Now is the Time”. I averaged about three showings a week with potential lake property buyers that wanted to take advantage of the “great deals” in 2014. I expect 2015 to be the same or better. I also sold the majority of my Listings in 2014, so hopefully that trend will continue.

Lake Hartwell Waterfront Home Sales improved 22.6% over 2013. That’s a strong indicator that we’re moving in the right direction. Average Sale prices ($320K) have increased by 3.2% over 2013, with most buyers looking in the $200,000 to $350,000 range.
