Simpsonville, South Carolina is located approximately 11 miles southeast of Greenville, SC. While this is an accurate statement, it is also somewhat misleading. I always tell people that Simpsonville is somewhat kidney shaped. You can live in the Five Forks area of Simpsonville, which would put you less than 8 miles from downtown Greenville, or the Fork Shoals area, which would place you just over 16 miles from the same location.
Simpsonville, SC consists of both incorporated areas (city limits), as well as unincorporated areas. This makes deciphering certain statistics a little difficult. Simpsonville consists of two different zip codes: 29680 and 29681. The first encompasses most of the city limits, and the areas surrounding Fairview Road, Georgia Road, and the Main Street areas of downtown Simpsonville. The second (29681) encompasses more of the areas surrounding the Five Forks/Woodruff Road area. This separation make it slightly difficult to make sense of demographics.
According to the 2000 US Census, the city of Simpsonville has a population of approximately 14,352. However, the entire 29680 zip code represented a population of approximately 20,044. The 29681 population according to the 2000 US Census was 30,002. Therefore the total population at that time was just over 50,000, but the amazing growth Simpsonville has experienced in the last 6 years has probably increased that figure significantly. In fact, I would venture to guess that the majority of the growth around Greenville in the past 7 years has occurred in the areas to the southeast of downtown Greenville.
Due to past growth, and continued growth, the Simpsonville, SC real estate market has continued to show stability. I have provided the Simpsonville, SC real estate data below to help you conceptualize the stability, and overall promise of the Simpsonville area.
Number of Homes Sold
Average Sales Price
Average Days on Market
While the number of homes sold decreased in 2008, the average sale price is 21% higher than 5 years ago, and the average time it takes to sell a home is still consistent with past years as well.
Currently, there are 897 homes currently available in Simpsonville, on the market for an average asking price of $289,179 (median is $226,000). Based on the 557 homes sold through the first half of 2009, this represents a 9 1/2 month inventory of homes currently available. This is obviously far healthier than the 14 month national average.
