Hi Jay, If the properties are similar the difference in the property taxes would most likely be whether the home is owner occupied, a rental or the homeowner is over 65 and has qualified for the Homestead exemption. Here is the website for York County the tax search is under the online services menu. I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have anyother questions. Thanks!

Words, 'Required' is a strong word left to be determined be a jury once the buyer decides that they wish that you had told them about the presence of the mold that is making their children sick. Especially since you just have posted a public digital admission that you already know about the mold.

Our company attorney always says that a seller will always be better off to disclose any material fact that is known about a property prior to closing.

All the Best, Dan

Hi Hprentice,
I write an article each month for My Carolina Town Magazine/Tega Cay (and Fort Mill), Each month I report on the solds and the active homes on the market. Last month I reported this:
Year in review for Tega Cay:
The 2010 year saw a total of 112 homes sold with an average price of $281,884. Compare this to 2011 in which 137 homes sold with an average sold price of $276,144.00. It’s interesting to note that even though more homes sold in 2011, the average sold price decreased. In addition, the average days on market in 2010 was 136 days compared to 116 days in 2011. This tells me that it may be possible that sellers are getting smarter about their pricing, thus reducing their days on market. This pricing could also be attributed to the fact that more homes sold instead of simply expiring or being withdrawn by the seller. These figures also include new construction sales including the Lake Ridge community in Tega Cay. The prices on the homes sold in 2011 range from $51,000 to $420,000.
In Answer to your Question:
The average price per square foot for single family homes SOLD IN TEGA CAY from Jan 1, 2012-March 3, 2012 was $89.58. This figure is from the Charlotte Multiple Listing Service. The average days on market was 158 days and the list to sales price ratio was 96%.
Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions about these statistics, Thank you

This is a loaded question. Realtors are only allowed by law to direct buyers into neighborhoods by price, amenities, proximity to goods and services etc...(Property questions). Questions regarding race, gender, family make-up, lifestyle preferences etc. are out of bounds. Tega Cay has an abundance of goods and services, amenities, the lake and marina, golf course and close is in close proximity to Charlotte with South Carolina taxes. These factors attract all kinds people. It's a good choice for housing offering homes that range from the mid 100K to well over a million. Check out our website to look at all of the available homes:

Hope this helps. If you need help with anything feel free to contact me.

Really the only way to find out is either submit your offer of 20-25% below asking or keep watching it until it sells and then you might be able to find the sale amount in the public records at the courthouse.

The sellers may have already received an offer at 20-25% below asking months ago and are now regretting turning it down. You may be able to get the home at this price but will never really know until you try.
