Default Mill area homes/Greenville & Easley

Are the Mill areas a decent place to live and are they far away from the grocery stores? I see properites on Realtor.com and some of the ones I can afford are in the Mill areas. I cannot afford a house for more than $100k. I just need a small 2, or better yet 3 bedroom with one bathroom for one single adult.

Any replies about the Mill area(s) would be greatly appreciated.

This forum is wonderful. I've learned so much about Greenville and the surrounding area, and want to thank all of you in SC for the great information about our areas of interest. LMH

The mill areas around Greenville are not the safest places to live. These areas tend to be a higher crime area and if you were to drive thru them, you'd see the windows and doors covered with security bars. My husband's company owned a warehouse near Brandon Mill here in Greenville and they had to move out due to high crime and vandalism. The mill areas are not what they used to be. There are plenty of inexpensive areas around Greenville and Easley that are not in mill areas.

You are right about the higher crime in the mill areas, but it is getting better. They're starting to turn the old mills into luxury condominiums so it'll be getting much nicer and safer.
