Businessweek said that in 2009, landlords offered more discounts to help keep existing tenants and attract new ones. The report said there are more renters than ever now because people have lost their homes or are putting off buying one.

I know and I really wish I had/could take advantage of this. I would love to buy a foreclosed house, and rent it out... if only I had the time and energy I would need to dedicate to it, now is just about the most perfect time.

I feel like I'm the only person in my extended family in the area that doesn't own a rental house!

Does anybody have an opinion on whether home sales are picking up locally?

I don't think they are much, but they also didn't decline nearly as much here as other areas. It's definitely still a buyer's market.

That's good and all, but does that mean these people will be losing money off a falling home prices? I think Greenville market is lagging national home values and now starting to see the pain.

There doesn't appear to be much (if any) difference between the local and national trends over the last two years, based on the Zillow link. By the way, their population info for Greenville needs updated.

There's a big increase in house price between the 2007 and 2008 for Greenville. 2007 was when the bubble popped for the national. You don't see decline in housing prices until 2008. I was just stating that lag.
