Lexington SC Real Estate – Some Residents will see a water and sewer rate hike

Lexington SC Real Estate – Some Residents Will See a Water and Sewer Rate Hike

Some owners of Lexington SC Real Estate  may be in for a water and sewer rate increase on July 1.   In the most recent edition of the Lexington Chronicle it was reported that the proposed 3% rate increase for customers of the Town of Lexington could take effect mid summer if the increase is approved by the council.  The proposed increase could cost the average in town user an extra $2.00 per month.  According to the article this would be the first of more increases to come over the next 5 years.  The fast pace growth of Lexington SC Real Estate has caused some issues like this to arise, but increases like this are necessary sometimes to keep up with the growth.


The Lexington market had a little slow down on the listing side, which was expected, but the sales are up and DOM is down.  I know in our office we have seen a big pick up in the market !  Irmo also followed suit with more homes sold and a decrease in DOM.  Lake Murray sales are still very slow, but this period did show an increase in listings.  Chapin sales were up big, which is very encouraging for all of us.  Columbia and Northeast Columbia both experienced some similar numbers in activity for the week.  Overall, numbers like this tell me the sales are picking up and moving some existing inventory in advance of our typical Spring market.
