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. I love the feeling like I NEED to curl up in front of a fire with a book and a hot drink OR catch a show at one of the many theatres here in Greenville. Both of these gave me the idea to help you find either a show or a hot drink. There are so many cool options for both now in Greenville. Enjoy the cool weather!

Where's The Coffee? 


I was going to list all the cool coffee shops in Greenville I could find, but instead I found this really nice map all set up with little coffee icons!

Click on the map and select to see a larger image and it will show you a listing of all the coffee shops in the area. It lists the name, rating, address, a large map and more. If you move the map it will show you more shops in the area you select. 

Greenville has become a truly urban area with lots of neat places to meet and visit with others and drink a fine brew.  Enjoy!

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

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.

?   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.
