The summer months are traditionally the busiest months in the Greenville SC real estate market and this certainly held true this year. While July was the biggest month for real estate closings, we had another great month in August with home closings up 9% over last August. Year to date home closings are up 20% over the same time period in 2012. Homes for sale inventory numbers have remained steady and days on market have trended down. All positive signs for our local market.
