Is Greenville in a buyer’s or seller’s market right now?

Greenville is a balanced market in October 2022

Greenville’s real estate market was a balanced market in October. Existing home sales declined for the second consecutive month, with sales down 13.9 percent from the same period last year. High inflation and soaring interest rates have put a dent in the purchasing power and have contributed to the cooling of what was once a hot Greenville housing market.

The slowdown in sales has provided a much-needed lift to the housing supply, with inventory up 94.3 percent to 4,054 units. However, new listings were down 1.7 percent to 1,693. Months supply of inventory was up 121.4 percent to 3.1 months, indicating that supply increased relative to demand.

The average homes in Greenville go pending in around 31 days, 52.4 percent slower than it was in October 2021. As the market now tipping at a balance point, we can expect that homes will begin to spend more days on the market. The median sales price was up 9.8 percent to $302,000.

Is it a good time to buy a home in Greenville, SC?

As the rising costs of homeownership caused some volatility in demand as more buyers find themselves unable to afford the much higher payment, home prices will likely stay even though the demand has lessened.

Whether this is a good time for you to buy a house in Greenville or not depends on your financial situation, goals, and readiness to become a homeowner. If your situation needs to buy a home now, it pays if you understand what you can actually afford. Shop for mortgage rates and find the best lender that will offer you the best financing option.

In this balanced market, sellers are more inclined to give concessions to attract more buyers. It is one of those times buyers should take advantage of. Therefore, it’s essential to have a good Greenville realtor and mortgage lender to help navigate through this market.
