Welcome to the Family, Greenville SC Newcomers!

You were searching for a life change, relocated due to a career opportunity, or you simply fell in love with Greenville, South Carolina and now you are a certified Greenvillian. First of all, welcome to this beautiful, diverse, and amazing family and community! Now for the next steps, finding your favorite local spots, easiest commute, or connecting with people and groups that share your interests. It is time to make Greenville your home!

Let's begin with commuting... do you live in one of the surrounding cities such as Greer or Spartanburg? If so, you may be experiencing the traffic nightmare that greets you most mornings on the Interstates. I-85/385 Gateway LogoDon't worry, there is hope coming your way with the I-85/385 Gateway project and you can stay up to date on lane closures and other important information on the website or get email updates from the project. Construction is well underway and although the scheduled completion will not be until 2020, there are already improvements that are making the drive a bit easier. We are giving high-fives to the engineering and construction teams for keeping this project moving along! We will be celebrating with you when the rush hour traffic continues to move because even though manners are a hallmark of the South, you will find that those manners disipate when it comes to driving on the Interstates. If you are located in the suburbs of Greenville there are many other routes that you can take to completely avoid the Interstates. Remember, Google Maps can be a dear friend where you can explore the many options and drive times. 

If you have already explored the Downtown area, you may have experienced the beautiful Falls Park, the Saturday Farmer's Market, or the live music of Main Street Fridays. Each of the mentioned attracts tourists, but you may be happy to know that each also still attracts locals. We love going to Falls Park to walk the bridge, watching the ducks, and relaxing on the lawn while adoring the waterfall. It is also worth noting that most locals heed the warning signs along the Reedy River banks and do not wade in the inviting waters. The bacteria levels are just too high to risk getting ill from playing in the water, so we prefer the viewing only action of the falls. We still take pictures in front of the famed Medusa Tree, grab coffee or a cone at Spill the Beans, and exclaim while pointing out each time we pass one of the Mice on Main. That's one the greatest things about Downtown, no matter how many times you traverse those tree-lined streets, it never gets old. Locals truly embrace this city and we think it is perfectly okay to keep that touristy awestruck feeling with what becomes every day life for residents. 

Dining options abound in Downtown and surrounding areas, so why not try one of the established local restaurants that you many not have visited? Tommy's Country Ham House has not only been providing great food for over 50 years, but has also been known to welcome a political candidate or two. Tommy's serves up meat and three dishes along with delicious breakfasts. You can venture outside of Downtown a little to Pleasantburg Drive to sample autentic Middle Eastern cuisine at The Pita House which is a cash only establishment that has been drawing locals for lunch and dinner since the 1980's. This family owned restaurant offers fresh made pita, falafel, shawarma, pastries, and much more. Staying on Pleasantburg Drive, you should stop by Tanner's Big Orange for a locally famous hot dog or a Tannerburger. After all, this establishment has been serving up good food to Greenville for over 75 years now, so there must be something that keeps all of the locals coming back for more. These are only a few of the places where locals congregate to share food and laughs and we encourage you to keep exploring and venturing out to gain more knowledge on local hang outs. 

Based on the beautiful view while driving down Interstate 385 toward Downtown, it should come as no surprise that Greenvillians are often beckoned to partake of a relaxing drive, day trip, or a weekend stay into the surrounding mountains in any season of the year. A short drive will lead you to Table Rock State Park to hike to the top of Governor's Rock, Caesar's Head State Park where you can easily experience the view from the Devil's Kitchen, or visit Fred W. Symmes Chapel, also known as Pretty Place, which offers breaktaking views of the Greenville County mountains. The choices are many for the outdoor adventurer and will not disappoint whether you seek hiking, water adventures, or simply relaxing strolls through small mountain communities. In the fall season, masses of Upstate residents drive 30 minutes north to visit apple orchards such as Sky Top Orchards or Justus Orchards, both located just across the North Carolina border via Highway 25. A full day's visit is often in order for either location to explore the orchard, pick apples, sample cider, and stand in line to grab a dozen or two hot apple doughnuts. Yes, it is worth the wait in line, trust us on this one! Exploring the surrounding towns for dinner is also a great way to end your trip into the mountains.

These are only a few tips for navigating locally and we hope that it helps you. We encourage to venture out into your neighborhood, ask your new coworkers, and learn what makes Greenville home to you. In our humble opinion, Greenville is truly one of the greatest cities and areas to live in and we hope that you feel the same way. With that stated, there is only one thing left to say....

Considering Relocating to the Upstate of South Carolina?


[Google Maps]

According to the Census Bureau, Greenville, South Carolina is one of the fastest growing southern cities in the U.S. This is no surprise to those of us that already call Greenville and the surrounding areas 'home,' as we have witnessed the exponential growth within the locality. The past ten years have ushered in expansion in business, housing, and accessible services. You may be wondering what attracts people to this area, and better yet, what makes people choose to stay. We have a few facts that may help to shed light on that subject.

Southern Cities Growing Quickly

[Source: U.S. Census Bureau]

#1 Careers       

If you have visited or read the local news for Greenville, Spartanburg, or Anderson, SC then you have more than likely heard mention of businesses such as BMW, Michelin, G.E., or Fluor. The listed industries combined serve as a place of employment for close to 14,000 residents of the Upstate area. The Greenville Health System tops the charts, being the largest employer in Greenville County with just over 14,000 employees alone. Healthcare, manufacturing, and education careers are readily available in the Upstate region. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the unemployment rate for Greenville County, as of May 2017, currently stands at at low 3.1% and average weekly wages are strong. New companies have continued to establish roots in the area, which coupled with expansions from existing industries, are together forging a vibrant and sustainable economy. 

#2 Cost of Living  

With wages remaining stable and the availability of jobs rising, the cost of living in the Greater Greenville area remains below the U.S. nationial average. A key indicator to the affordability is the median purchase price for residential real estate which has shown a home appreciation of 33.05% in the past 10 years, as noted on Sperling's Best Places. Affordability can be strongly affected by the price of housing in relation to the median income. Utilities, services, and the price of goods should also be calculated to determine the income required for livability. Sperling's Best Places website offers a tool for comparing between cities that can be found by clicking here.

#3 Education  

For those with children, the Greenville County School District represents the largest school district in the state of South Carolina and the 44th largest in the U.S. Offering over 101 schools within the public school district, options abound. From magnet schools, to charter schools, and programs that begin career tracks, such as engineering, beginning in elementary grades, a top notch education is available for children. The School District of Greenville County is also the second largest employer for the Upstate with 9800 employees. Higher education offerings in the area include Furman University, Wofford College, Converse College, Greenville Technical College, and Clemson University. The colleges and universities work in close partnership with local businesses and industries to ensure that the education and skills needed to keep the workforce strong is imparted into students.  

#4 Climate  

Many choosing to relocate to this area are in search of a temperate climate, one that affords the weather suitable to enjoy the outdoors without extremes. The Upstate of South Carolina is home to a clearly defined four season year, with moderate temperatures in each season. January averages are 54 degrees for highs and 32 degrees for lows. Summertimes can be humid, yet warm and sunny with average temperatures reaching 90 degrees for the highs and 70 for the lows. Rainfall for the area averages 50 inches per year for the Greenville area and a 3 inches of snow on average in the winter. Don't worry though if snow is something that you enjoy because you can take a short drive into either the South Carolina or North Carolina mountains to enjoy a day or two in the fluffy white powder. If the summer weather suits you better then you may want to take advantage of one of the beautiful lakes that are within an hour's drive, including Hartwell Lake, Lake Keowee, and Lake Jocassee. If 'lake life' is the life for you, check out these beautiful waterfront properties that can serve as your residence or vacation home. 

#5 Culture  

Greenville and the surrounding areas have much to offer in regards to culture. Not only is the area overflowing with natural beauty, but there museums and venues to offer access to a wonderful array of the Arts. The Peace Center in Downtown Greenville features a wide variety of performances each year such as Broadway shows, ballet theater, and orchestra productions. There is an open air stage pavillion for enjoying outdoor summer concerts. Shakespeare in the Park is also a summer production that offers free performances for patrons visiting Falls Park and draws large crowds. Selections for partaking of the Arts include the Greenville County Art Museum, the Upcountry History Museum, and even a museum for the little ones, the Greenville County Children's Museum that is was named as the first children's museum to be classified as a Smithsonian affiliate.  

These are only a few of the factors that you may be considering as you plan your visit or move to the Upstate. If you have not heard mention of Greenville in the past or if you want to gain more insight into what all of the buzz is about, here are few accolades that the city has received both nationally and locally. If there are any other questions that you may have that we did not cover or if you would like more information on the area, please feel free to give us a call at 864-438-5050 and we will be happy to assist you and share more about this place that we call home.

It's Farmer's Market season in Greenville South Carolina

  

There is an ongoing movement to gather, invest, and thrive in the local community. Some would state that this movement is "going back to your roots," and that those roots are embedded through our local businesses, including farms. Spring and summer are the seasons that many venture outside of the grocery store shelves in search of locally grown and harvested produce and products. Bring your baskets, your reusable bags, and/or your cooler and join us as we explore a few of our local Farmer's Markets. There are many options, from weekend markets, to markets that open multiple days per week, and you will not be disappointed with any. 

The long running State Farmer's Market is located on Rutherford Road in the city Greenville and is open to the public Monday through Friday. This market offers local produce, dried beans, plants, and other local vendor's products. You can click here to access a link for a brochure outlining all that this market has to offer.

Downtown Greenville offers the bustling Saturday Market Alive which attracts tourists and locals alike. Residents flock to this market to stock up on everything from produce, to local honey, to fresh made pasta. The Saturday Market is held on cordoned off blocks right on Main Street, in Downtown, each week from May until October. Visitors can also purchase breakfast, coffee, and snacks from local restaurant booths. This market also holds cooking demonstrations, has live music, and hosts other special events. Of course, the added bonus of hanging out Downtown after the market is a plus!

Further south in the county, there are smaller markets to explore. The Farmer's Market at Fountain Inn is held in the beautiful pavilion area, accessed directly from Main Street. The farmers that feature edible delights here are so local that you may find that a few are your neighbors. If you have not ventured to this smaller market, you will be pleasantly surprised. After shopping the market, you may enjoy browsing the shops and grabbing a bite at one of the local restaurants located on the quaint Main Street. This market is open each Saturday. 

Only a few miles away the Simpsonville Farmer's Market is also open for business each Saturday from 8 am until 12 noon. The market is held on the City Park grounds in the lawn area. The vendor list has grown to 27 this year, making the 2017 market lineup the largest yet. There are vendors selling handmade items such as healthy dog treats, popcorn for the humans, and of course, tons of fresh produce. Speaking of treats, this is a dog-friendly market, so bring your furry friends along to enjoy the sights and smells. 

For those are closer to the northern portion of the county, the Travelers Rest Farmer's Market on the Swamp Rabbit Trail is heralded as "Greenville County's largest open air market," according to the website for Trailblazer Park where the market is held. With close to 100 vendors, there are so many choices that a full grocery store trip could be substituted for a few hours here. Everything from homemade cleaning and beauty products are available on top of the fantastic produce. This market is open each Saturday between 8:30 am and 12 noon. Arrive early for the best selections! 

The outlets for shopping local abound in the Upstate of South Carolina. If you have not yet ventured out beyond the grocery store to purchase weekly fares, this may be just the right time to try one of the many markets and see how buying local not only grows our economy, but also offers the freshest items around. We will be browsing the bounty at one of the local markets this weekend and hope to see you there, too!

If you have any questions about Greenville, South Carolina or the surrounding areas, please give us a call at 864-438-5050 and we will be happy to help!  Visit www.GreenvilleRealEstateHub.com for information on local real estate.
