These are the changes to the MLS in the past 24 hours.  As you can see prices are decreasing more than increasing.  The number of homes coming to the market is low and sales are out pacing the new ones coming to the market.  Many people are withdrawing listing during the holidays.

Give Blood, Hurricane Ian has created a need

Fri, Sep 30th 2022 3:32 pm by Gwen Fowler 60 Second Insight

Carrell Elizabeth is my granddaughter, and she has now started the 4th generation of giving blood.  We are so proud that at 16 she took time out today to go and give. Giving blood is a fantastic way to give life, as synthetic blood has not been developed at this point.

I hope this post will encourage everyone to make an appointment in October to give.  15 minutes and you will make some family incredibly happy.  My mother is 84 and was upset at 65 when they would not let her give any more --she did not weigh enough. At 62, I still give four times a year, and Henry gives too.  My daughter works in a lab and types blood for all procedures.

We give when someone needs but we also give regula...

Sweat Equity

Sat, Jul 9th 2022 10:42 am by Gwen Fowler Property Listings

The storms last night knocked out the internet so today I am hot-spotting with my cell phone and trying to get things done. I am sitting here listing to tech support music play.  I have been holding for over an hour and I am next.  I hope I do not lose my place in line.

This month I have had 3 sales and have reduced 3 listings prices and I am working on getting 3 listings.  The magic of the 3s.  For anyone who does not work in real estate my goal, each week is to have a closing, list a new property, and put one under contract.  If you can make this happen you will have a steady income.

 I am getting a 2000 square feet brick house on 2 lots on Tuesday.  3/4 bedrooms, 2 baths with screene...

Another Year Older

Tue, Jan 11th 2022 6:42 pm by Gwen Fowler 60 Second Insight

My birthday was yesterday.  I am grateful to see another year.  2021 kicked my butt on several levels:

1) I had covid and lost the entire month of September

2) Because I had covid, my hair is falling out.  I did not know I was vain about my hair but I have discovered I am.

3) Because of Covid I did not get a vacation last year, I did not go to any concerts or fun events and I did not mingle with friends and family like I would have liked to.

But on the other side of the coin, I have aged to a new level. I appreciate simple things more:

1) Business was great, one of the best years I have ever had.  Lots of people sitting online reading about real estate and getting advice on how good ...

April Market report for Western Upstate SC

Tue, Jun 2nd 2020 12:11 pm by Gwen Fowler Market Report


Source: Western Upstate Association of REALTORS MLS. Current as of May 10, 2020

Added to the unemployment claims from March, more than 30 million people have become unemployed since COVID-19 has become widespread in the U.S. In the face of these challenging times, real estate activity in April slowed significantly.
