Dear ,I hope you had a great summer and if you're like me you are glad to be back to routines at work and at home. Bennett begins 9th grade and turns 15 this month, nothing else needs to be said about that. It has become a seller's market in many areas and price points due to lack of inventory but there are also some outlying areas that lag behind. Pricing has reached pre-downturn levels in many areas and it's trending upward in all areas of our market.

I hope you enjoy this month's newsletter and I hope you will forward it to your friends, family, and colleagues who may be thinking about buying a home in the Upstate. All my best, Keith (420-0262)

August Market Update  

The number of transactions year to date is up 20% and it looks like it will be a record year. Low inventory and high demand is driving prices back to predownturn levels and it looks like that will continue until interest rates begin to rise. Home Price Rise in nearly every US Metro Market and Home Starts Surge to 2007 Levels.

Many of you have already received my seasoning. I give it away to clients, that's right it's free. It's a thirty year-old recipe of ....well I'll keep the recipe to myself but it's a simple combination of salt, pepper, garlic powder and several other spices and there is no MSG. I make it myself at home on the dining room table. I put it on everything from my omelet in the morning to my steaks and salmon at night, as well as vegetables, potatoes, rice, etc. You get the point, it's great on everything and it makes seasoning your food simple and easy. Text me if you haven't  already received it and I'll send it out right away free of charge and special delivery.
