Feeling like a broken record since this will be the 3rd time I explain why I have slacked off lately. With the Holidays and my behind the scenes work on the upcoming redesign of the website, I decided to slow down on my posting frequency. But that is over now and you can expect things to get back to a more normal schedule around here in 2014.
So with any further blah blah blah, let’s dive in!
82 Homes Sold in Anderson County
There were 47 homes in Anderson, 3 in Belton, 6 in Easley (yes they are in Anderson County), 1 in Fair Play, 1 in Greenville (Powdersville), 2 in Honea Path, 3 in Iva, 1 in Pelzer, 6 in Pendleton, 4 in Piedmont, 2 in Starr 1 in Townville and 5 in Williamston reported as sold.

The average days on market was 102.
Remember this is for several weeks and I will get back to the normal weekly reports next week!
Least Expensive Home Reported Sold
The least expensive home reported sold this week in Anderson County was a 1166 SF 2 bedroom 1 bath home on 0.15 acres in Anderson. It sold for $5,000 CASH after being on the market for 62 days. Originally listed at $14,900.
Foreclosure in the Alphabet street area. If you are not familiar with that area, it has many older mill homes that can be pretty cheap. This home appeared decent other than the ceiling in the kitchen appearing to have been torn down or fallen down. Not sure what is up with that but you would want to check out the roof above it for sure. Could be an easy fix or it might be expensive. Hard to say for sure without getting a contractor to check it out.
Most Expensive Home Reported Sold
The most expensive home reported sold this week in Anderson County was a 4116 SF 4 bedroom 3.5 bath home on 0.49 acres in Anderson. It sold for $483,000 after being on the market for 25 days. Originally listed at $524,900.
Waterfront 2-story covered dock in place. 3 minutes from I-85 per MLS. Stainless appliances, granite countertops, Liz Claiborne carpet & paint.
There was another home reported as selling at $483,000 but I think the sold price is a typo since it was listed at $139,900 and did NOT appear to be a $400K home. Not sure what the story is but I am sure some member of the MLS police will find it and complain. I have bigger fish to fry…
Foreclosures and Short Sales
20 of the homes reported sold were foreclosures.
Only 1 of the homes reported sold was a short sale.
Today there are 92 foreclosed homes for sale in Anderson County.
Today there are 1382 homes for sale in Anderson County.
The Fine Print:
I will get back to posting the Absorption Rate next week when I get back into the swing of things. Bear with me because 2014 will see a redesign of the website to make it easier for visitors to find what they are looking for (at least I hope so).
This is only the basics of what happened over the past several weeks in Anderson County real estate.
This report is based on information from the Western Upstate Multiple Listing Service for the period 12-1-2013 through 12-29-2013. As always there may have been more closings but the agent has not turned in the closing sheet to the WUAR MLS yet. All this data is from the Western Upstate Association of REALTORS® Multiple Listing Service.
Any snarky or sarcastic comments are from your truly.
