Greenville Remains On June’s Improving Markets Index



Good news for South Carolina real estate buyers and residents, Greenville remains this month on the list  of the  nation’s improving markets on the monthly NAHB/First American Improving Markets Index.

Improving economic conditions have resulted in payroll employment being down just 5.2 percent from its highest point set in February 2008. This number is also up 4 percent from its lowest point set in September 2009. Single family home permitting is also up 3.2 percent from its low point set in September 2010.

Greenville’s success has been due to the city’s ability to reinvent itself from a textile center into a growing center for automotives, healthcare and logistics. Greenville is a transportation hub for many trucking firms and distribution centers because of its prime I-85 location between Atlanta, GA and Charlotte, NC. Greenville is also home to two highly regarded and still growing major health systems. Plus, the city is home to the North American headquarters for Michelin and BMW as well as the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research.

The Improving Marketing Index is a relatively new index unveiled by the National Association of Home Builders. It serves to draw attention to the fact that housing market are local, and that there are many metro areas where economic recovery is underway. The index measures monthly data on employment, single family housing permit growth and housing prices to determine whether or not a market is improving.

Florence, SC also made the June list, while the following North Carolina cities are on the list: Jacksonville, Burlington, Goldsboro, Greenville and Hickory.

Greenville Ranked Ninth Fastest Growing City

According to a CNNMoney report, Greenville was the ninth fastest growing city in the U.S. with a 32.5 percent growth between 2000 and 2010.

According to the report, Greenville has become an “international powerhouse” for companies globally. Greenville, once known for textile manufacturing, is now grouped with Spartanburg, Anderson and other towns as “The Upstate,” the northwestern region of South Carolina.

Because of the increasing job opportunities, real estate builders are expected to meet the growing population.

With over 250 international firms, including BMW (Germany), Michelin (France), GlaxoSmithKline (United Kingdom) and Kyocera (Japan), Greenville is becoming the manufacturing hub where people come from all over the world to buy, sell and study the manufacturing industry.

“That’s the highest international investment per capita in the nation,” said Nancy Whitworth, Greenville’s Director of Economic Development.

Eight out of the 10 fastest growing cities are in Southern states. Greenville, Spartanburg and Anderson’s total population is approximately one million.
