Greenville County Schools, SC

When shopping for a home in Greenville, everyone has a list of priorities or ‘must haves’ if you will. But, I’ve also found that many families have a corresponding ‘must haves’ list for the new schools they’ll be sending their kids to. In addition to all of the realty questions I get from clients, I also get a lot of questions about homes available in particular school zones!

In Greenville County School District, or GCSD, students attend schools based primarily on the location of their homes. It's not uncommon for buyers to start their home search based solely on homes available for a particular school. They hear about a strong arts program at Stone Academy or academic achievements of Bells Crossing and want to know more about homes in that area.

This is great for the Greenville condominium market and our real estate in general. A once deserted downtown is now flourishing with foot traffic, restaurants, offices and residential space.

Buying a home is an exciting time and there’s a lot to learn along the way. A LOT.  I always advise my first time homebuyer clients to prepare themselves as much as possible for their new journey, but it’s impossible to learn everything ahead of time. In no particular order, here are some of the basics that I find are sometimes forgotten:

Property Taxes

Greenville property taxes are due on January 15 without exception. If you’re a day late the penalty is 3% and will continue to increase the longer you put off paying your bill. There is no way to charm your way out of a penalty so keep track of this date!  

Schools Assigned to Your New Home
