Downtown Apartments in Greenville SC

If you’ve been to Greenville lately, you couldn’t have missed the number of cranes in the skyline – several new apartment buildings are about to open all over the downtown area, and there are already a few downtown apartment communities which are full.

While rental rates for downtown living are quite high right now, we expect with all the new units coming onto the market that the pricing and availability will shift dramatically.  Bottom line: if you can’t afford the apartment that’s your first choice, keep an eye on the rates over the next two years.

We’ve noted the apartments which are mill conversions with an asterisk.  These units are quite beautiful and unique.  Note that many of them are in transitional areas.

Here’s a good list to help you get started on finding a place to live in Greenville.

Choosing a Realtor

The real estate market in Greenville, SC is hotter than hot right now.   If you’re wanting to live close to downtown, it’s an extremely competitive market as of this writing.

Consequently, it’s highly important to choose the right Realtor if you’re moving to Greenville.  It’s a great idea to interview Realtors before you make your decision. This is an ice-breaking exercise which often reveals if you’ll be comfortable taking the home-buying journey together.

During the buying process, a lot of personal information is shared; make sure your Realtor is a good fit and you feel confident in sharing information with him or her.  One thing’s in your favor: a Realtor’s fee is paid by the seller out of the proceeds from a sale.

Hot Tip:  A few Realtors will ask for a transactional charge up front, then reimburse the charges at closing. You might want to clarify this point in an interview.

Local mortgage brokers are a great source for recommendations, since they work with many Realtors throughout the year.  You can also study ads and listings to see who is listing properties in your price range or the part of town you might be interested in.  But remember: your Realtor can best help you identify a Greenville area community or neighborhood  which will meet your needs.
