Find Out Which Neighborhoods Are Hot on the Latest Episode of “Your Carolina”


What are the hottest neighborhoods in Greenville? How’s our market looking as we enter the fourth quarter? I explain it all on the latest episode of “Your Carolina.”

Year to date, which are the five hottest neighborhoods in the upstate, according to the number of homes sold?

At the top of the list is Augusta Road, with 94 homes sold so far this year. This is always a hot area and a very popular neighborhood. A lot of people are drawn to its older homes, tree-lined streets, and its close proximity to downtown.

Second, we have a tie between Neely Farm and Westwood, with each neighborhood having 57 home sales.

Neely Farm is another established neighborhood that’s always a perennial favorite. It’s a good-sized neighborhood with lots of amenities. Westwood is different from these other neighborhoods in that it’s more entry-level and far more affordable.

Coming in as the fourth-hottest neighborhood is Morning Mist with 56 home sales. This area features a lot of new construction homes built in the last decade.


Now might be an opportune time to put your home on the market.


Rounding out the list in fifth place is North Main, with 53 homes sales thus far this year. This is another historic area with tree-lined streets that sits close to downtown.

As the third quarter ends and we enter the fourth quarter, here are some key year-to-date statistics to keep in mind:

  • Inventory has decreased 5.4%
  • The number of homes sold has increased 2.7%
  • The average days on market is down 14%
  • The average price has increased 7% to $226,136

As you can see, inventory is down, so there are fewer homes to look for out there. This means now might be an opportune time to put your home on the market if you’ve been thinking about it.

If you have any more questions about our Greenville market or you’re thinking of buying or selling a home, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’d be happy to help you.

Sean Hannity Endorses Dan Hamilton


Sean Hannity recently endorsed us on the radio. Check out the ad here.

We were thrilled to recently receive the stamp of approval from none other than Fox News host Sean Hannity himself. Here’s just a taste of what he had to say about our team:


"If you need to sell your home without all of the headaches that most people experience, I'm here to tell you that all real estate agents do not operate the same way. Dan Hamilton has a system that out-markets and out-sells 99% of other agents in the Greenville area. Dan creates demand for your home, which makes it sell faster and for more money. If at any point you're not happy, you can get out of the contract and pay nothing. But trust me, that's not going to happen. Don't play games with your home. Give Dan a call now."


Sean’s words are kind and true.


First of all, we’d like to say thank you to Sean for the kind words. They are also true words. If you’re not happy with the way we’re working for you at any point during the transaction, you can cancel your agreement with us with no penalty. That rarely happens, but the option is there for you.

Allow us to show you what we will do differently to ensure a successful transaction for you and your family. Give us a call or send us an email today if you’re thinking of selling your home or if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Our Hurricane Harvey Relief Story


Our team had the opportunity to show our true colors recently. Here’s what we experienced down in Houston.

On my latest appearance on “Your Carolina With Jack & Megan,” I talked a little bit about the whirlwind of a week that my team and I just went through. 

As you know, the destruction and devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma was intense. Our team was originally scheduled to head down to Austin for a big event with thousands of other Keller Williams agents. In the wake of the recent events, a decision was made to forgo our retreat in favor of heading down to Houston to provide aid to those who were affected by the storms.

Thousands of other agents joined us and the experience was incredible. We had a crew of about 10 with us that traveled from Austin to Houston going door to door helping homeowners. Most of their houses were underwater at some point, so we had to work quickly to remove all of the drywall before it got moldy.


We’re happy to play some small part in the recovery.


We visited a condo complex that had hundreds of units that were flooded and none of the people we spoke with had flood insurance. It just goes to show that even if you aren’t in a flood zone, taking on the relatively inexpensive cost of flood insurance is a wise move.

We were happy to be able to help in some small way, but there are people who still need our help. Right now, Keller Williams is on a mission to raise $20 million. Our local goal is $30,000 and we’re already well on our way to reaching it. Please reach out to us if you'd like to contribute toward our goal.

If you have any questions for me about the real estate market in the meantime, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

What Do Buyers Regret About Their Home Purchases?


Half of all homebuyers regret something about their purchase. Here’s why.

On my latest appearance on “Your Carolina With Jack and Megan,” I talked about a recent study that showed half of all homebuyers had regrets about the property they purchased. Two-thirds of those regrets had to do with the size of the property being too small. It was easily the biggest regret of the surveyed buyers.

To avoid having this kind of regret when it comes time for you to buy a home, we recommend planning ahead. A pre-qualification is an important step because it lets you know exactly what you can afford. The location you are looking at could play a role too. You will be able to get a bigger home if you aren’t looking in a prime location.Some areas simply have better prices than others. It’s a tough balancing act, but all buyers should have a game plan.


The biggest regret of renters was not buying!


This survey also surveyed renters. Can you guess what their biggest regret was? It was not buying a home! A lot of renters are mistakenly under the impression that they can’t qualify for a mortgage. The truth is that most of them can.

If you’re going to buy a house at any point in the near future, you want to plan to be in the home for at least five years to make the investment worth it. If you won’t be there for long enough, it might make sense to rent for a short time. However, with interest rates rising in the near future, now represents a great opportunity to affordably purchase a home.

If you or anyone you know is thinking about buying a home in or around Greenville, give us a call or send us an email. We would love to hear from you.
