Hello my family and I are thinking about a job opportunity which would land us in Greenville. We are a married couple in our late 20's with two small children I would like Info on good family neighborhoods around the area, schools, and crime. We are willing to drive 20 min to work in Greenville so any neighborhoods not to far would be of interest. Also rental properties 3 bedroom 2 bath. We have a small dog and a cat. I sure hope the previous posts I have read are false About the natives not wanting people relocating to their city. My family is born and raised in Florida and we are very friendly it would be nice to have like minded neighbors who always look out for one another, any info or advice is greatly appreciated

If your interested in buying a house, your best bet is Pickens co. Taxes are way lower than Greenville co.
I would suggest Easley. I just purchased a home here 2 yrs ago in a very, very quiet Subdivision. Houses are between 10-15 yrs old. I work in Greenville and its only a 20 min comute.
Anything else you want to know about the area, just ask.

I agree with conceal carry. I'm also in Easley and believe it's a wonderful place to live and raise a family. And the home prices and taxes are lower.

I will be looking to rent for the first year to make sure I really like the area before purchasing a home. With this job we will not get a chance to come check out The area before Moving, My husband will do the interview then we have 30 days to move. I would like to know if there are a good amount of rental properties in the area you listed also the schools, my children are in elementary. Thank you so much for your help

I couldn't tell you much about the schools much as I don't have any children.
I would assume being a smaller town than Greenville that they will get more attention in the classrooms.
I would be glad to pick up some of the free local renters guides and send them if you like.

Almost forgot. Check craigslist for rental property in Easley and Pickens. That would be your best bet.
