Housing styles and features vary greatly in different parts of the country. Here in the Greenville area, we certainly have a large number of homes with basements but they are not as prevalent as many of the northern states. Typically here our basements are daylight, walkout style basements and that is due to the clay type soil here. To have a daylight/walkout basement the lot will fall from the front to the rear to accommodate this feature.
The numbers below give you an idea of the breakdown of homes with basements based on the current homes for sale inventory.
- There are currently 4,644 single family homes for sale in the Greenville SC MLS.
- 1066 of these homes have some type of basement which is about 23%.
- 389 of these homes have fully finished basements.
- 332 of these homes have partially finished basements.
Basements are frequently requested by my clients and another critical search filter we use to pinpoint homes. In the coming weeks we will continue to explore other key home features that we focus on to help our clients find the home of their dreams.
