Greenville is a seller’s market in November 2021
As we head into the holiday season, activities in the real estate market typically slow down as people take time to travel or get busy for the holiday season. Since our economy is improving, the real estate market remains strong. In Greenville, we are seeing the home buying demand ticking up, bolstered by low-interest rates and a low supply of inventory. It is still a seller’s market. There were only 1,446 homes for sale last month. New Listings were only up for 2.6 percent to 1,398. Months Supply of Inventory remained flat at 1.9, indicating a stabilizing supply-demand balance.
Prices moved higher as Median Sales Price was up 17.3 percent to $285,000. The average homes in Greenville go pending in around 23 days, 41% faster than it was last year. Sellers choosing to sell their homes are most likely to get 100% or more.
We still see homebuyers skipping the home inspection process to get a home under contract and hot properties getting multiple offers.
