Buying a Home in Greenville

River PlaceGreenville SC Real Estate Today Buyer's Guide

Our goal here is to keep some of these thoughts in mind while we provide for you a Home Buyers Guide.  It will be almost impossible to incorporate every detail of what you might encounter into this brief informational guide because almost every real estate transaction can have it's own unique characteristics. The goal will be to give buyers an overview of the entire home buying process, while keeping you informed about issues with which you should be aware.


In today's Greenville area market, demand for homes is very high and inventory is fairly low. For that reason, foreclosures and short sales are becoming harder to find. Finding a "deal" has almost become a thing of the past. While this may be true in some cases, the affect of these distressed properties has really impacted all properties. Nowadays, finding good homes at a good price is a rarity in today's high demand seller's market. Multiple offer scenarios are quite common and homes are selling for more than asking in many cases.

The steps that will be covered in this guide include finding a home, financing your home, viewing properties in an organized fashion, writing and negotiating an offer to purchase, taking the appropriate steps once you go under contract, covering the different types of home inspections available to you, and then cruising right on in to closing your home.  Also, this guide will help you to tackle the many different road blocks you may come across when buying a new or re-sale home, a foreclosure or short sale, or a condo or town home.

While we are delighted for you to enjoy learning about buying a home in Greenville, we also want to stress that this in noStatue in Greenville way should serve as a replacement for having an experienced real estate consultant working for you. There have been many years of going through hundreds of transactions to have accumulated the knowledge in finding you the right home and location...and then seeing it through to close.  There are too many variables to know to be able to cover every one of them in this short guide. The intent is to provide only the basics so that you are able to understand the process and hopefully be able to avoid some of the inherent stress involved.

So take a look and enjoy...then, call us when you are ready to buy!
