Lake Hartwell Real Estate News: SpotOnTheLake

Light up the lake

The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays at Lake Hartwell.  Vacation home owners make it a priority to get to the lake to enjoy their homes with family and friends.  With the fourth falling on a Wednesday this year, the celebrating will surely get extended to the weekend before and the weekend after the fourth - and the city of Hartwell always get things started even earlier with their fireworks show at Big Oaks Recreation Center THIS Saturday, June 23rd.  Private fireworks will be all around the lake every night, but Chickasaw Point is hosting a show on June 30th at the golf course (limited viewing from the lake), and two of the largest private shows are near Hardy Farms at buoy T89 on the Tugaloo Channel and in Gumlog Creek near Tugaloo State Park.  Both are on Saturday, July 7th and both shows are paid for privately, so donations are welcomed to help offset expenses.  Come see us and celebrate safely!

Update from last week:  Congratulations to Bill and Cindy Thompson for winning the $100 Overton's gift card from last Saturday's tour of homes!

Lake Hartwell Home Showcase

The annual Lake Hartwell Home Showcase is this Saturday from 11am to 3pm.  You can tour all 6 homes at your own pace, but make sure not to miss this great home at 555 Panorama Drive in Lavonia and register for a chance to win a $100 gift cardto Overton's or Cabella's.  f you have been thinking of finding your own spot on the lake, there couldn't be a better time than right now.

(150 Northlake Drive has been replaced with 1139 Chandlers Ferry Road.  You can visit the properties in any order.)


Air Time

I try to limit the amount of "air-time" I give to my family in these weekly notes, but this week I couldn't resist.   We had our whole family up at Lake Hartwell for Memorial Day weekend.  The weather was supposed to be a washout, but Saturday and Sunday turned out to be delightful.  Our older grandkids have always enjoyed tubing, but this year, 2-year old Caroline got in on the action, and our 7-year old Evan definitely got his share of "air-time".   We have been using the Airhead Gforce 3 tubes for over 10 years. We love the size and durability.   Check out this short video that Trey, my son-in-law, put together.

Running To Wine (not whine)

Just a few weeks after the Hartwell Dam Run, local runners have another shot at conquering the terrain at The Crusher (12k/6k/1 mile) Trail race at Yonah Mountain Vineyards in Cleveland, GA just north of Lake Hartwell.  The trail is a mixed surface, circling through the vineyards and ending at the winery.  Click here to see a video of the full course.  Adult runners of age are treated to a glass of wine at the conclusion of the race.  If you like wine, but not running, check out all other opportunities to enjoy the winery here.

Help Lucille find her spot on the lake


This is Lucille.  She saw this video of Diesel enjoying the lake and got a little sad.  She wants to find her own spot on the lake.  Every year, Keller Williams Realty sponsors "Red Day".  Red Day is a day that KW associates set aside to give back to the community.  This year, we are supporting Hart County Animal Rescue who is sponsoring an adoption event on Thursday afternoon between 3:00p.m. and 7:00p.m. at the Tractor Supply Company in Hartwell.  Lucille is available for adoption along with other great pets.  And if you don't have a chance to get by today, you can contact the Animal Rescue center here.

Q1 2018 Lake Hartwell Market Update

Graph showing first quarter 2018 market statistics

69 homes and 14 vacant lots were sold at Lake Hartwell in the first quarter of 2018.  These results are very close to the number of sales in the first quarter of 2017.  The average lot price was down slightly to $126k, and the average home price was up slightly to $383k.  Our team has 43 clients sold or under contract already this year, so we are doing our part to help keep things moving.  Available inventory for lots and homes remains steady as many sellers have elected to list their properties to take advantage of the active spring season.  Our team has listed 34 properties already this year.  

More Cows Are Coming

We have our share of cows who live in the Lake Hartwell area, but some famous cows will be joining us soon. One of our favorite fast-food restaurants, Chick-fil-A, will be opening at Exit 173 in Lavonia. The restaurant is already under construction on the north side of I-85 near Hill's Exxon, Zaxby's and J. Peters.  I am looking forward to taking full advantage of their great food and fantastic service just as soon as they are able to open. And Chick-fil-A's commitment to our area usually means that other popular restaurants may be considering nearby locations.  Three moo's for Chick-fil-A!
