Least Expensive Home Reported Sold
The least expensive home reported sold this week was a 1391 SF 3 bedroom 1 bath house on 0.62 acres in Belton.
It sold for $25,000 CASH after being on the market for 553 days if we combine both of the consecutive listings with the same agent/company. Originally hit the market at $44,500.
Located in the 29627 Zip Code and the Belton Elementary, Belton Middle, Belton-Honea Path High school district per MLS listing.
Based on the amount of time it took to sell and the final sale price compared to the original list price, I would say this home was overpriced when it first hit the market.
Vinyl siding on crawl space. Composition shingle roof. No heat or air. Public water and septic tank. Multiple fireplaces. Carpet, hardwood and vinyl flooring.
Listing description says it is a fixer upper and being sold AS-IS. Yet they priced it as a turn key property which makes little to no sense…
Most Expensive Home Reported Sold
The most expensive home reported sold this week was a 4089 SF 5 bedroom 3.5 bath house on 2.59 acres in Anderson.
It sold for $460,000 after being on the market for 7 days. Originally hit the market at $499,900.
Located in the 29626 Zip Code and the McLees Elementary, Robert Anderson Middle, Westside High school district per MLS listing.
Custom built home with cement plank exterior. Finished walkout basement. 4 car attached garage. Heat pump. Architectural shingle roof. Public water and sewer plus the listing says it has a sewer lift.
While it is not a waterfront home it does have a deeded slip and community boat dock so you can enjoy Hartwell Lake.
Carpet, ceramic tile and hardwood floors. Granite counter tops. Fireplace and cathedral ceiling in the family room. Bonus room, rec room, formal dining and breakfast area in the kitchen.
Master suite on main level has walk in closet, double sinks, jetted tub and separate shower.
A nice large home on a large lot with lake access as an added bonus.
I should mention that while this home sold quickly, it had been listed previously for 152 days with another agent/company. When it was withdrawn, it was listed at the same price that it hit the market at with this listing.
Sold Deal of the Week in Anderson County
The best deal in my opinion of the sold listings this week was a 1613 SF 3 bedroom 2 bath house on roughly 0.44 acres in the city limits of Anderson.
It sold for $126,000 after being on the market for 9 days. Originally hit the market at $129,900. The seller paid $4000 of the buyer’s closing costs.
Located in the 29621 Zip Code and the Concord Elementary, McCants Middle, TL Hanna High school district per MLS listing.
Wood exterior on slab construction. Composition shingle roof. Heat pump. 1 car attached garage. Fenced flat as a pancake back yard. Screened porch. Public sewer and water.
Carpet and vinyl floors. Fireplace. Kitchen with breakfast area. Formal living room, formal dining room.
Located in well established neighborhood. Move in ready.
Despite all the hysteria about the limited inventory of starter homes, this is a fine example that there are plenty in our area. They key is that buyers must have their act together and work with a buyers agent to succeed.

This Week’s Hot New Listing
The best deal of this week’s new listings in my opinion is a 1153 SF 3 bedroom 1.5 bath house on roughly 0.41 acres in Anderson
Hit the market at $79,900
Located in the 29625 Zip Code and the Centerville Elementary, Lakeside Middle, Westside High school district per MLS listing.
Brick and vinyl siding on crawl space. Natural gas heat and central AC. 1 car attached garage and detached 2 car garage. Public water and septic tank. Fenced yard.
Some improvements already done such as roof and energy efficient windows. Carpet and vinyl floors. Some ugly paint inside but that can be easily and cheaply fixed.
This is another example of an affordable home in the Anderson area. The key thing about this home that I must point out is that it is already under contract.
Buyers that are not prepared by already having a Pre-Approval Letter AND working with a Buyers Agent stand no chance in today’s market.
21 homes were reported as going under contract (Pending) this week in Anderson County.
Currently there are 228 homes in the MLS with an Under Contract (Pending) status.
The Fine Print:
Depending on the home/location/price range, this may not tell you what is possible or realistic for a specific home! It could be better or worse!
Because these statistics are for only one week and all of Anderson County, it does not tell you everything you need to know to make an informed decision!
