Tips when WHEN DEALING WITH A BUILDER in Lexington South Carolina looking at new homes in Lexington SC? Hire a buyers agent that is not affiliated with that builder quickly! Be Aware allot of talk about negotiating the price and terms all goes out the window when you're buying a newly built home in Lexington South Carolina. By and large, the builder or developer will dictates the terms on which they will sell you a home in their community, and you can either take it or leave it. Sad but so true even if building from the ground up. Make sure you can live with that before deciding to buy from the tract builder. If not you may need to hire a custom builder.The list price is the price you will pay and there standard of building are usually not negotiable. There is little play in negotiation...

Wow what a night. Lexington South Carolina is usually a quiet little place without much drama. Not last night. We got home late from a scrimmage ballgame and was getting everyone ready for bed when suddenly I heard a distinct BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR of a freight train. What? Grabbing my children from upstairs we ran to the lower level and took cover. The next 5 seconds was scary! It seemed like 5 minutes. NO WARNINGS ISSUED. As I have a all weather radio that didn't make a sound. Official reports say it was a microburst but for those that seen it we know what it was. It was a small funnel cloud (tornado) that hit the ground for maybe 5 seconds. The wind was in excess of 60-70 MPH. Westbrook and Martins Grove Community in Lexington South Carolina has some major damage and lots of debris all ...

Bears in Lexington SC...oh my! Yesterday a young bear was spotted a mile or so from my home. This is right on the shores of Lake Murray in Lexington South Carolina near downtown and city limits. It is unusual to see a bear in the midlands of South Carolina as its not really there range. Bear sightings have increased over the last few years as it seems the population is growing. SCDNR Say's this is the time of year Mother Bears chase off the cubs to start a new life. And the cubs wonder about to find there own home range. I will think twice if my children say they have seen something in the woods from now on. Bears in Lexington South Carolina?
