Think you're alone relocating to Greenville, South Carolina?  Think again.  Greenville has become a hotbed for relocation over the past decade, with many regional, national, and internationally operating companies setting up shop in the Upstate.  Many of these postitions have brought people to our area from all over the globe, and similarly, have sent people from our area all over the globe.  

Of the record number of visitors to this year, 3% will be searching homes for sale in Greenville SC from outside of the US, and 61% of our US visitors are searching from outside of South Carolina!  Yes, the majority of people searching for homes on are finding us from across statelines!

So, where are they coming from?  Well, everywhere really, with every state represented, and the lowest being 4 visits each from North Dakota and Wyoming, and only 2 visits from South Dakota.  What are the top 15 metro areas with people using the Greenville SC MLS search?  See the chart below to find out!

Greenville's reign at the top spot should come as no surprise given the sheer amount of advertising (social media, print, yard signs) we do in the local market.  Ultimately, it's always interesting to see these areas shift over the years.  Detroit has been home to a top 5 spot in years past, as have other cities that don't appear on this year's top 15.
