This post is an update on my current real estate projects. I had to turn over a rental property last month, which was very frustrating because the tenant left the property in very bad shape. Fortunately, I was able to find a very good new tenant. We just listed a completed rehab last week that I anticipate to sell very quickly after the Holiday weekend. I've also listed a condo for a client in Mt Pleasant last week, which I also think will sell very quickly. Finally, we've recently bought a new project downtown that will be an amazing house. It needs an absolute ton of work, but I think it will be stunning when completed. I also anticipate it to be very successful from a business perspective, as well. Remember me if you're interested in buying or selling residential, commercial or investment real estate in Charleston, SC!
Recently, there has been a lot of coverage of various crimes committed against real estate professionals. Our jobs demand us to put ourselves in very vulnerable situations. We have to visit unknown or vacant properties on a daily basis. We have to meet with absolute strangers in these houses quite often. We're normally on call and can find ourselves at these properties with strangers at all hours. There have been quite a few attacks and even murders committed against real estate agents in the last few months. The victims were targeted for the reasons that I mentioned above. Beyond wanting to protect ourselves, we also want to protect our clients when we show them a house. I personally take every step I can to protect myself and my clients when visiting properties. This includes having a concealed weapons permit and trying to keep my firearm with me every time that I visit a questionable property. This post explains the ways and reasons that we attempt to be as careful as possible when it comes to showing properties for the safety of ourselves and our clients.
