Buying a home this Spring in the greater Greenville area
Spring time is typically the busiest time of year for home buyers. In Greenville, we have seen many instances of sellers receiving multiple offers, including cash buyers bidding significantly over Greenville real estate listings.
The challenge for home buyers looking to buy a home in Greenville is finding a home to buy. As spring time is well underway, we are seeing a hot market. Great properties are selling like hot pancakes. This market condition definitely favors the sellers. Anyone trying to sell their home in Greenville will definitely sell quickly especially if priced correctly. Hot properties like the one listed above that sell for $250,000 ( Check out the complete home details here) will be out of the market soon.
The upside for home buyers buying this year is the fact that interest rates on home loans are lower. The average mortgage rate in SC on a 30 yr-fixed loan is 4.4% and 3.8% for 15-year fixed loan. And they are expected to remain low throughout the spring buying season. If you are a first-time home buyer and you are looking to buy a home this spring or sometime this year, once you found a house that met all of your extensive criteria, put an offer in right away.
