Default Good/Bad neighborhoods in Greer, SC

Hello everyone,

I am thinking about buying a home in the Greer area. Can anyone tell me some of the good neighborhoods or subdivisions to live in and which ones to avoid because of crime, noise, etc. Also, is there an area or side of Greer to avoid (i.e. East, West, etc). I know that this is a relative question but any insights, observations or experiences would be appreciated. Thanks.

If you don't want your car broken into, house invaded/broken into and you want to feel safe, don't move to Victor, or Sunnyside.

The nicest areas in Greer tend to be the ones north of Wade Hampton, although there are many smaller, nice and decent neighborhoods on the south side and within the actual city area.

In general the mill villages are not very desirable.

So avoid Victor, Greer Mill, Sunnyside, the numbered streets area, downtown area is iffy.

East Greer in general is the bad side of town.

The west side of Greer aka Eastside of Greenville is nice. North of Greer is beautiful.

I agree, the Northside of Greer is beautiful. Neat, tidy and quiet older and not so old neighborhoods, beautiful new homes being built. Wooded and a rural feel but very close to all one would need for shopping. Direct shot to the highways leading up into the mountains.

Exactly what I am looking for and what my hunch has been.

Thank you very much.

Plus, you have the most wonderful, beautiful views of the BlueRidge mountains. You won't believe the hold that view will have on you. I could not imagine living somewhere where I don't see that while i'm driving to the grocery store etc.

That is exactly what I was hoping for. Where I live now is all rolling hills and I currently live on a 1000' high ridge and coming into the city on the highway get some great views of the surrounding hills and mountains. It would be nice to still have a nice view like that.

It's a really beautiful area here when you look past the high taxes, ghetto culture, insane cost of living, crime, out of control state spending, and all the other things that have ruined it. lol

Thank you yet again for the information.

i would have to say, the north side of greer would be the best (for a long term investment on your house) the homes up hwy 14 N of greer are much cheaper right now than the other areas.. eventully the developments (commercial) will make its way north causing home prices to rise... great resale potential

Hwy 14. Subdivisons like Spring hill bent creek and dillard creek are really the place to buy. House have amazing upgrades for very good price and the area has been booming. Great investment, very hign re sale value.
