Welcome

With more than a decade of experience beginning in the Lake Hartwell real estate market, SpotOnTheLake.com has evolved into the best lake-specific web site that allows you to compare lakes and find available lake properties in upstate Georgia and South Carolina.   This region is sought after for its pristine lakes in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains and for its four season climate with mild winters.  All of our featured lakes offer opportunities for sailing, power boating, water sports and fishing.  Residents in the nearby cities of Atlanta, Greenville and Asheville have been quietly selecting properties in this area for their vacation homes, but more and more, people from around the country are seeking and finding all this region has to offer.  Please explore our site and contact us to set up a time to find your spot on the lake.

 

 
 
 
 

 

 

 
 

 

 

 

Lake Hartwell Real Estate News

It's 12:00 Somewhere

We are excited to announce that Hartwell now has its first brewery, Southern Hart Brewing Company.  The ribbon cutting celebrating the opening will be on Friday, 1/18/19, at 10:30 AM.   They will be open immediately following with food and beverages available.  (It's 12:00 somewhere.)  I can't wait to visit and support one of the new local establishments that help to make our area great.  Make sure to save some time to let us help you find your spot on the lake.  We can drive.

Don't Take The Bait

You can't help but be aware of all of the new companies that will guarantee to buy your home without ever showing it. It seems too good to be true. Why wouldn't everyone want to do this? There is one primary answer: you should expect to net 10-25% less on the sale of your home if you select this option. The guaranteed offer from the company is frequently below the current market value of your home. If you accept, they will typically do an inspection, and then ask for a reduction in price due to the repairs that need to be made. In addition to the low sales price and repair reduction, you also have transaction fees that range from 7-13%.  They will then do some minor clean-up and put your home back for sale at or above the full market value. I have researched company websites and public reviews, and while you do see some satisfied sellers, these are mainly people that put an extremely high value on making the experience easy and fast, without concern for maximizing their net proceeds from the sale. There was also a high number of bad reviews from buyers purchasing homes from these companies. I don't want to presume that there is never a time when this might be a good option for a seller, but I do know that we helped 110 clients buy or sell last year, and we have 102 4 or 5-star reviews at this public website. By the way, if you know someone that might want to sell their home below market value, please reply to this note - asking for a friend. :)

 

New Year Dawning

                   

One of my past clients, Bill Powell, captured this moment on 1/1/19.  I hope all of you had a fun and safe New Year's Eve and welcomed the New Year with family and friends.  Our work schedule was a little more relaxed over the holidays, but our SpotOnTheLake team was able to finish the year strong.  We helped 110 people buy or sell real estate in 2018 generating over $23 million in sales, making it our best year ever. We are especially grateful to the clients that took time to let us know how we did by submitting an online review here.   If you have been considering buying or selling a lake property, we hope we will have the chance to work with you in 2019.  Let us know how we can best serve you.
