Greenville is a city like no other! Located in the Upstate of South Carolina, it is conveniently situated just hours from the east coast beaches and only an hour from Asheville’s mountains, lakes, and The Biltmore Estate. The city and its surrounding areas are quickly growing with numerous job opportunities, industries, scenic views, and social features. Greenville provides big city life with a touch of southern charm that can’t be beat. Building your dream home in Greenville makes traveling easy with direct access to metropolitan cities like Atlanta, Nashville, and Charlotte.

Greenville recently made a mark in the U.S. News & World Report as one of the Most Affordable places to live in the U.S. with the median home sale price as lower than the national medium in 2021-2022. However, this may change as more and more people are moving to the coveted city. Don’t wait, build your dream home in the upstate!
