In general, regardless of what city you live in every property that sells will influence the value of other properties within close proximity of the most recent sold house. The recently sold property will in part indicate a value that a willing and able buyer will pay. The value changes frequently...weekly, monthly. Realtors do not set a house's value, the market sets value. Thanks for the post!... more
Good and Bad? This is kinda a hard question to answer! I think it depends on what your looking for once you get here. We have lots of things to offer in lots of different areas, most of my clients find its a great town to settle down in and start a family with all the options available for kids. My older retiree clients seem to lean more towards our great medical facilities and the different arts programs offered by the college! As for me I enjoy living in Greenville, I tell people its the "Big" little city with lots of things to do! I guess to sum it up, no matter what your looking for I think Greenville has it to offer! I wish you luck on your move and if you need help with specitif needs please feel free to call on my services, you can find out more by visiting www.JesseAllenHomes.com... more
Fair-housing laws prevent Realtors from talking about neighborhood demographics such as crime rates, race ratios,etc. We are legally bound to not discriminate and not just in reference to people, that means neighborhoods too.
Any time you are looking for information about local crime (regardless of the city) look up the county sheriffs office and call them directy. Explain you are considering a move to XYZ location and you want to know the local crime trends (what types of crime and in what areas) the sheriff's office is NOT bound by fair-housing laws and can speak freely on the subject. Then, call your local sheriff's office, where you currently live and ask them the same thing. Then you can compare the two. Greenville County --> http://www.gcso.org/
