Recent reports by local development officials report that Greer retail sales rose to more than $1 billion last year, a 93 percent increase over the pre-recession high in 2008. Officials said it was the first time Greer has pushed past the billion dollar mark.
That’s good news for area residents and homeowners. “Vibrant retail sales are a great indicator of local growth, and we’re excited that Greer is becoming an attractive, on-the-rise market as anticipated,” says Jeff Randolph, developer of O’Neal Village, Carilion, Verdmont, Neely Farm and 30 additional communities in the Upstate. Randolph says Greer and the Blue Ridge corridor were flagged as high-growth areas before the recession, and that commercial and residential growth are now beginning to take off.
O’Neal Village homes and the community stack up well against the competition. The amenities here, including the new fitness center, surpass those offered at similarly priced communities. And as Greer continues to grow and add new business, residents will continue to gain options both within the community and throughout the area. With 90 home lots currently available and a master plan that allows for more than 500 future home sites, O’Neal Village is poised to accommodate Greer’s expected growth.
