Homes stay on the market for less time in the Greater Greenville area than any other part of South Carolina, according to South Carolina REALTORS.
WYFF News 4 Investigates analyzed the group’s 2017 Annual Report on the South Carolina Housing Market released Monday.
A Greenville home listed in 2017 spent an average of 53 days on the market. Charleston area homes spent 55 days on the market. The longest amount of time it took to sell a home was in the Southern Midlands at 232 days on average.
The report says listings in the Greenville area were up 6.3% in 2017 over 2016. That the fifth fastest growth rate in South Carolina.
While the Greenville area is seeing more houses sell, other parts of the Upstate are experiencing better growth in median sales prices. Cherokee, the Western Upstate and Spartanburg all ranked in the top five for higher sales prices over 2016.
Greenwood was the only area in the state where median sales price fell from year to year.
Overall, only the Charleston Trident (18,387) and Coastal Carolinas (14,214) areas had more closed sales than Greater Greenville (12,959).
Greater Greenville had the fourth highest median sales price in 2017 at $189,000. Hilton Head topped the list at $300,000, followed by Charleston Trident and Beaufort.
