Inventory may be low, but these five tips courtesy of the Realtors at Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty can help you find your dream home:

  1. Work with the right agent: A well-connected + experienced agent can help you find off-market opportunities, coming-soon listings, negotiate the best deal for you, and help you finance with the right lending partner.
  2. Know when to be competitive, and when not to overpay: There’s a difference.
  3. Explore buying dirt: Land or new builds are a great way to buy in the Upstate right now.
  4. Be flexible: A willingness to compromise and be flexible is key in a low inventory market.
  5. Expand your search area: Your heart may be set on one area, but there are so many fantastic places to live in GVL.*
