Home Maintenance Hop Tip 

March is a great time to take a look around outside! Give the outside of your home a good bath, the deck and patio too! Check your deck for any nail pops, loose or splintered boards, and consider a fresh coat of paint or sealant. Make sure there aren't any new cracks that may have developed over the winter months in the patio, driveway or any walkways.

February 2023 Top Ten Markets to Watch

homes for sale in greenville sc

The Greenville-Anderson-Mauldin SC market is ranked at 5 on the National Association of REALTORS® top ten markets to watch. In NAR’s On The Horizon: Markets to Watch in 2023 and Beyond publication, referring to the Greenville market, they stated, “Job growth is robust in this area, but job growth in the information industry is even stronger. Housing supply can keep up with housing demand better than nationally, as a single-family permit was issued for every 4 new jobs within the past year.”  If you are interested in what your Greater Greenville neighborhood market looks like, you can run your own market report here

Factors included in identifying better than average housing markets are housing affordability, more renters who can afford to buy a median priced home, stronger job growth, industry growth, information industry share in the local GDP, migration gains, remote workers, population growth, growth of active housing inventory and housing shortages. Determining factors are better than the national average in the markets highlighted.

In at number one, and only a couple hours South of Greenville, is the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta, GA market. It is the only market on the top ten list that meets all 10 factors. Out of 179 metro areas, other markets in the top ten, in order, are Raleigh, NC, Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington, TX, Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers, AR-MO, Charleston-North Charleston, SC, Huntsville, AL, San Antonio-New Braunfels, TX, and Knoxville, TN.

New Jobs Coming to Greenville County

Health Supply US, a Medical Supply Manufacturer, announced in June they will be opening a manufacturing facility in Greenville County. Creating over 600 new jobs and investing more than $150 million over the next 5 years. Their primary focus is the manufacturing over 4.3 billion American-made nitrile gloves annually.  Health Supply US holds the ability to triple production within their current plan.  The Greenville County facility will operate as Glove One.  Located at 1 Quality Way, next to Beechtree Business Park, the building will provide approximately 400,000 square feet of industrial manufacturing and distribution space.  This announcement comes on the shoulders of the fastest growing industry in South Carolina, life sciences. The life sciences industry employs 87,000 South Carolinians in 42 of the 46 counties in our state!

Unity Park is Officially Open

The City of Greenville held the highly anticipated Grand Opening for the new 60-acre Unity Park on May 19th, 2022. 

What’s at Unity Park?

To start, there are three pedestrian bridges. One of the bridges, named The Auro Bridge, reaches over the Reedy River in the middle of the park.

Unity Park View from Aero Bridge

Prisma Health Visitors Center is 10,000-square-foot with restrooms, a welcome center, gallery & meeting space.

Running along both sides of the Ready River, the new park contains five additional looped walking trails as an extension of The Swamp Rabbit Trail, adding 2.5 miles.

The Lila Mae Brock Plaza, whose namesake was a leader of the Southernside neighborhood that worked to address poverty, hunger, crime, and neglect; as well as opening housing for seniors and the disabled, features a 7’ bronze statue of Brock in honor of her services to the community.

The two expansive green spaces are names Michelin Green and Meadowbrook Green. The latter named for the historic Meadowbrook Park built on the site in 1938.

With a little something for everyone to choose from, the park features continue to include seven bike rack stations located throughout the park, 362 parking spaces, covered picnic tables, a first-aid station, basketball courts and an historic baseball field situated on the site of the circa 1925 Mayberry Park.

Four Playgrounds!  A 4,100-square-foot splash pad with over 40 jets is surrounded by boulders to lounge on and includes a toddler area. The pad is open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. However, it is turned off for rainy days, including scattered showers.

Unity Park Playground

The second playground is 30,400-square-foot, named SYNNEX Share the Magic Playground, and includes two look out towers, slides, balance beams and rope climbing structures.

The Ann Watson Trotter Memorial Garden is 9,400 square feet, with swings, a climbing wall, and a storytelling circle.

Unity Park Rock Climbing Wall

Donovan Playground is 13,200 square feet, measuring about the size of an Olympic-size swimming pool! It holds an all-in-one play structure, a custom log bridge, swings, teeter-totters, auditory/sensory equipment, and a giant green salamander play sculpture. There are even musical elements in the toddler playground and specialized equipment for children with disabilities like overhead restraints for swings and a transfer station with grab bars.

Park developments & things to come

An interesting thing of note is the park’s construction has involved the replacement of existing soil with soil containing a higher percentage of sand to help prevent erosion. Additionally, replacement of invasive tree species is included in the efforts to restore the native environment.

A wetlands area on the park’s northern perimeter, where the original path of the Reedy River was, is to be restored and will feature low impact boardwalks so the native environment can be observed.

The wetlands boardwalk and an observation tower are part of the second phase of construction.

Towards the end of May 2022, Greenville City Council passed a vote for final approval to build an observation tower in Unity Park. The tower will be named Honor Tower in recognition of first responders such as police officers and firefighters, as well as military personnel.

Details to visit Unity Park

5 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. Unity Park will be open year-round.

FREE WEEKEND TROLLEY service to Unity Park is available: Pick up is available at three locations downtown - the Transit Center on McBee, Richardson and West North Street or Heritage Green. The service runs Friday from 4-11 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. - 11 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. - 8 p.m.

Greenville SC Weather

Pool WaterSummer is most definitely here! A heat wave came across most of the US in June and South Carolina was no exception. With highs mostly above 90 degrees, and even into triple digits a few times, many Greenville residents are living their best lives pool side. It has been a fairly dry start to the summer, with rain blowing through less than 10 days in June. July is predicted to bring more rain with average highs around 90 degrees.

A monthly review of our team & the Greenville Real Estate Market

Holidays Approaching...Greenville_real_estate_market_facts

The cool weather we saw come in during October has turned into wet cold showers.

Mauldin, SC Development of a City Center

Recently at a Mauldin City Council meeting they tentatively selected a firm for the Mauldin downtown development project, City Center! Contour Development is expected to become the City’s developer for the City Center project, pending a second reading of an ordinance authorizing the agreement and the sale of City-owned property to the firm. The project is expected to break ground in 2020. “This is an important first step in achieving the City’s goal of creating a downtown that is anticipated to deliver a mix of development that serves the commercial, office, hospitality, cultural and residential needs of our growing community,” said Mayor Dennis Raines. “The City Center concept has been a vision for the City’s leadership that we have been diligently working to bring to fruition.” 


This development will not only give Mauldin a defining "center", but will continue the much anticipated "Swamp Rabbit Trail" to parts south which include Simpsonville and Fountain Inn. This is great news especially as those towns have already invested in their leg of the Swamp Rabbit Trail. As each town in Greenville County steps up and improves their cities and towns it continues to make Greenville, SC 

Where exactly does Mauldin, SC cover. See the boundaries on the above map!



Three high speed rail options between Atlanta + Charlotte (which could potentially cut travel time between the two cities in half) have been proposed. Each of the three proposed lines would run through Greenville, S.C., and the GDOT says environmental impact + public input are the main keys in mind when deciding which option to move forward with. There was an open house on Oct. 23 at County Square (301 University Ridge, Set. 400) which was attended by over 100 people.

OCTOBER Real Estate Market

Mortgage rates are approximately 1% lower then this time last year. Fannie Mae is predicting continued low rates on into 2020 and we could have even lower rates. Good news for home buyers.

New listings were up causing inventory to rise as pending sales decreased about 54%. 

Prices are continuing to rise with Median sales prices up 5.6 % to $218,000. Days on Market increased slightly to 50 days. Supply of inventory was up 22.9% to 4.3 months, which indicates increased supply relative to demand. As this is a slower time of year for home sales a lower number of closings is to be expected. The historically low mortgage rates are continuing to encourage buyer demand and increase prices. Excellent affordability gives buyers the ability to offer moer to secure their dream homes. 

Throughout the country continual low levels of inventory constrain sales activity from where it would be in a balanced economy. 

~ GGAR Market Newsletter


How many homes sold by month compared to last year? 



Real Estate Sales  - New Listings were up 1.7% while Pending Sales decreased 54.2%. Inventory grew to 22.9% or 4,883 units. Prices moved higher with median sales price moving up 5.6% to $218,000. Days on Market (DOM) increased 6.4% - so it is taking 4.3 months to sell your house, showing that supply is increasing relative to demand.

?   DID YOU KNOW   ?

* Greenville's Mice on Main has been delighting visitors-children and adults alike-since 2000. But did you know that the whole idea for the whimsical and wildly popular public art installation/scavenger hunt, in which tiny bronze mice hide up and down Main Street, came from a teenage boy? Jim Ryan was a senior in high school when he developed the idea and raised money to make it a reality.

* Poinsett Hotel was built to provide rooms for visitors to Greenville’s annual Southern Textile Exposition.

* Greenville was called Pleasantburg until the name was changed in 1831.

* The Children's Museum of the Upstate is the only children's museum in the US that is a Smithsonian affiliate, an incredible honor.

Camping in the Upstate and South Carolina. Fall weather makes being outdoors much more enjoyable. People get out and camp. In South Carolina with 47 state parks and over 3000 campsites, & cabins it's easy to go adventuring. The Blue Ridge Parkway, just outside of Asheville, is a major destination in the Fall. Other parks in the Upstate include: 

  • Mountain Bridge Wilderness - 13,000 acres of forest.
  • Table Rock State Park - 3,083 acres with 2 lakes.
  • Devil's Fork State Park - 20 lakeside villas.

SEPTEMBER Real Estate Market

The expected Fall slowdown took place with students going back to school, but buyer and seller activity remained strong. Low mortgage rates and a strong economy have encouraged home sales other then the seasonal tempered pace. 

In Washington DC there are discussions about a broad overhaul of the housing fiance system, to include privatization (again) of Fannie Mae and Freddi Mac. Many of these conversations and changes will take place over months and years and their impact is not clear at this time. While the future is not clear this Halloween season is and it's frighteningly fearless!

What is Biophilia? Wikipedia says...The biophilia hypothesis also called BET suggests that humans possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature and other forms of life. Edward O. Wilson introduced and popularized the hypothesis in his book, Biophilia (1984). He defines biophilia as "the urge to affiliate with other forms of life".
For 2019 home design trends, there is greater interest in biophilia. Natural, organic materials–such as wood floors, stone, and daylight and plant life–remind us of the exterior and brings the outside and nature, in. We are machine- and technology-driven society, but nostalgic about past processes and handiwork, so opportunities for custom millwork and crafted materials are very important.”

Travelers Rest recently reviewed a master plan for growth and development. The plan envisioned taking the Swamp Rabbit Trail and widening it for more pedestrian traffic, lighting it and connecting it more cohesively to surrounding businesses and neighborhoods. Similar to what downtown Greenville has done at Falls Park, making the Swamp Rabbit a gathering place for people to eat, visit, bring the kids and enjoy leisure time TR wants to do the same thing in their neck of the woods. Local businesses have starting this trend connecting to the trail whenever possible. Making it formal and uniform would greatly enhance the attractiveness of TR as a  whole. More people could visit for longer with nighttime lighting and activities. No one business can afford to build the infrastructure these type of changes need, but the investment by TR's tax payers will greatly improve property values in the local area. TR is just beginning to see some of the growth that has rocketed through downtown Greenville in recent years.

TR recently upgraded their website as part of their overall growth and development plan. Visit and see the improvements. 

Further improvements in TR come from the fact that they recently approved tax increases to pay for higher police and firefighter salaries. These increases in pay will retain valuable employees and cut down on turnover as well as attracting bright new talent. Travelers Rest along with Greer, Mauldin, Simpsonville and Fountain Inn have strong leadership with the foresight to bring in the swamp rabbit trail, amphitheatres, Improved downtown areas and more for their cities.
