Greenville is a seller’s market in September 2021
Greenville’s real estate market is still a seller’s market. There were only 2,961 homes for sale last month. We’re still seeing a low inventory to keep up with buyers demand. Sold homes are up 3.6% from this time last year. The median price is up 14% to $268,990 while the average sales price is up 14.43% to $326,188.
We still see homebuyers skipping the home inspection process to get a home under contract and hot properties getting multiple offers. Looking at the numbers, we’re selling more homes than we did last year, and we’re selling them for more money.
The average homes in Greenville go pending in around 23 days, 9% slower than it was in August, even so, the trend for median days on market is still favorable to sellers as compared to last year, homes were selling at an average of 54 days. Sellers choosing to sell their homes are most likely to get 100% or more.
Is it a good time to buy a home in Greenville, SC?
In September, from the home buyer’s perspective, the market is somewhat competitive as the market is still favorable to sellers. Some sellers are not comfortable selling their homes right now, even with record sales prices so there’s still not enough inventory. Buyers are most likely to pay the full price of the property if not a little above the asking price.
Mortgage rates are still at historically low levels and if you are on the market looking to buy a house, you should take action. Even if the market is leaning towards the sellers, some of these market data are showing signs of cooling down.
