Pennies on the Dollar

Every deal feels terrific, doesn't it?. After all, this is what Realtors set out to do each day, isn't it. We try and help our clients buy and sell property for the best possible terms. So, I feel pretty good today. My partner in the office, the wonderful and indefatigable Kim C., and I just helped a nice couple from up north purchase a deep-water homesite, in one of Beaufort's best neighborhoods, for 40 cents on the dollar. The purchase price was $235,000. The seller's had paid $480,000. This is not to gloat over the misfortune of the sellers, but rather to celebrate a victory in helping our clients find a wonderful investment property on the water, at a price which would have been unthinkable just a few years ago. That is something we can feel very good about.
