When I start working with home buyer clients, during the initial meeting we discuss all the criteria that are important to them concerning the selection of their new home. With over 4,600 homes currently for sale in our Greenville SC MLS it is important to apply as many filters as possible so we can pinpoint homes that fit the criteria and may be of interest. 

One of the first filters we discuss is age of home. Some buyers gravitate towards brand new homes with the latest features and current color schemes. Others prefer homes that are in a more mature neighborhood with established trees and landscaping. Some want to focus only in homes around the downtown that may be in historic areas. The good news is we have a wide selection of homes to suite most any taste. To prove this I thought I would provide insight into our current inventory single family homes for sale and the age and price breakdown.

  • There are currently 4,646 single family homes for sale. Price range of $13,000 to $6,495,000 with an average price of $300,981.
  • There are 808 To be built/under construction/new never lived in homes. Price range of $99,900 to $1,495,000 with an average price of $264,150.
  • In the 1-5 year old homes there are 255 for sale. Price range of $75,000 to $2,950,000 with an average price of $459,127.
  • In the 6-10 year old homes there are 774 for sale. Price range of $30,000 to $6,495,000 with an average price of $420,447.
  • In the 11-20 year old homes there are 932 for sale. Price range of $45,000 to $4,062,189 with an average price of $352,921.
  • In the 21-30 year old homes there are 438 for sale. Price range of $24,900 to $2,950,000 with an average price of $313,856.
  • In the 31-50 year old homes there are 750 for sale. Price range of $19,900 to $1,450,000 with an average price of $200,943.
  • In the 50 plus category of homes there are 603 for sale . Price range of $13,000 to $1,850,000 with an average price of $186,925

In the coming weeks I will review some of the key factors we use as filters and give you an idea about the wide variety of homes we have for sale here. Each area of the country is unique in their housing styles and finishes and we will explore these in more detail.
