I’m joining you today from the Sulphur Springs trailhead in beautiful Paris Mountain State Park. My son and I just finished up this easy little hike on this gorgeous fall morning, and the greenery here is absolutely amazing. In fact, I was just showing Paris Mountain Park to some clients who are new in town, and they noticed exactly how close Greenville was right away. Paris Mountain State Park is just minutes away from downtown Greenville, and it’s breathtaking to see up close.

Paris Mountain State park is minutes from downtown Greenville.

The original watershed for the water that provided Greenville its growth is right here, so there’s a lot of history in this area, too. The park is also home to a number of beautiful lakes, streams, mountain biking trails, and hiking trails, making it a great resource for those living in the Greenville area—including myself!

Should You Sell Your Home During an Election Year?

Recently, one of our email subscribers, Mike, sent in a question: “Is it hard to sell a home in an election year? Another agent warned me about trying to sell one of my homes right now.” That is a great question and it’s very timely, considering that we are less than 45 days out from electing a new President here in the United States. However, there isn’t one broad answer for this question. I recommend looking at the data to see what’s happening not only in the U.S., but also right here in Greenville. You should really pay attention to what’s happening in your specific neighborhood. I don’t think anyone can say, “Well, it’s an election year — that means it’s a bad time to sell.”

Good real estate decisions are based on evidence, not emotions.

You have to look at the data. Inventory is still low and there are plenty of buyers out there looking for a home. If you are thinking about selling your home, you have to consider your price point, what’s happening in your neighborhood, and what kind of buyer demand there is in the area. If you are selling a home for under $200,000 in Greenville, you would be selling in a very strong market. Even as we enter the fall season, now is still a good time to put your home on the market. Again, that is a great question that cannot be answered in broad terms. You have to look at specific data. In order to make good real estate decisions, you need to answer questions based on evidence, not emotion. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I would be more than happy to help you!
