Hello,
We are selling our present home in the Southwest, plan to move out to Greenville, SC Area within the next 6 months at the most. Both long retired, so jobs are not an issue. Links are fine... any suggestions, questions etc. just ask away, here goes:

I have been looking at homes for sale almost daily (Truila.com), am rather confused as to WHERE to buy. Home Size: 2,000 - 3,000 sq. ft. 1/2 acre max. $150,000 - $300,000 (max) range. Home with a pool (not a HOA community pool) would be VERY nice!
REALTORS: You are welcome to comment here if you wish, or send message.
Homes for sale by owner are very okay also, just message me.

Would like close proximity to greentransit lines (for convenience - not for primary transportation).
Where do you suggest ( areas) that are in the Greenville city proper?
OR
Does living outside Greenville city proper make more (economic) sense? If so, where.
I really need help in picking a SUBDIVISION ( for example: Windermere, Half Mile Lake) you get the idea. That way I can narrow my searches down.


The short of it: Where we live now: NO transit, no real place to go (short drive or walk to) and want to spend our "Golden Years" enjoying ourselves with outdoor activities ( Festivals, farmers' market, walk the Swamp Rabbit Trail, go downtown on occasion, fun stuff) and at the same time have a comfortable home/community we can enjoy also... block parties? Community fun? You get the idea. We might be older... but not OLD! :-)

Thank You
TEXASLADY

The only negative to Trulia is that they don't update often enough & a lot of the homes on there are sold. Have you tried Realtor.com or Journalhomes.com. Journal will give you a good neighborhood description. There is a link to the green link system (sorry I don't have it). You can probably google it. You will not walk to the Farmers Market if you are referring to the 1 Downtown from Half Mile Lake but the drive is not bad. I know people who love it there. Try Cleveland Park, Parkins Mill & East North. You might get lucky but under $300k right now may not happen. Anything worth anything in the Augusta Rd. area or North Main areas seem to be getting multiple offers right now.
