Greenville Housing Market Information

With 91,495 people, 36,446 houses or apartments, and a median cost of homes of $169,776, Greenville real estate and house prices are near the national average for all cities and towns.

Large apartment complexes or high rise apartments are the single most common housing type in Greenville, accounting for 44.17% of the city's housing units. Other types of housing that are prevalent in Greenville include single-family detached homes ( 33.79%), row houses and other attached homes ( 10.52%), and a few duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings ( 9.81%). Cities that are predominantly high-density buildings are relatively uncommon in the US. Because of the density, these types of cities are often walkable and compact, and often have a lively downtown.

Greenville is dominated by renter-occupied one, two, or no bedrooms apartments. 68.49% of Greenville's dwellings are rentals.

There is a lot of housing in Greenville built from 1970 to 1999 so parts of town may have that "Brady Bunch" look of homes popular in the '70s and early '80s, although some of these houses were built up through the early '90s as well. There is also a lot of housing in Greenville built between 2000 and later ( 37.51%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 1940-1969 ( 13.19%). There's also some housing in Greenville built before 1939 ( 1.48%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Greenville. Fully 11.80% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Greenville homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Greenville real estate prices below levels they could achieve if vacant housing was absorbed into the market and became occupied. Housing vacancy rates are a useful measure to consider, along with other things, if you are a home buyer or a real estate investor.
