South Carolina Top 10 Builders

All across South Carolina, the delightful smell of yellow jessamine scents the air, and, just like this wonderful vine, the growth of new homes is stretching across the state. Along the coastal plains from Beaufort to Horry and Georgetown counties, through the sand hills of Lexington and Richland counties to Greenville County in the Upstate, quality home builders are enjoying success.

The market for new homes continues to blossom, thanks to South Carolina’s prime location. People are tired of higher taxes and long winters in the Northeast, opting instead to enjoy the many advantages of living in the Southeast. As one real estate expert stated, “Living has become a burden for many folks in New York, and they realize there is a wonderful quality of life with less financial strain” in places like South Carolina.

Area home builders are responding to the needs of the many newlyweds, retirees and second-home buyers who are moving to South Carolina. The most successful on our Top 10 list are those who work with their clients from design consultation to the completion construction and handing over the keys.

So whether your dream home is in the Lowcountry, Midlands or Upstate areas of South Carolina, our Top 10 home builders are prepared to make it a reality.

This is our Top 10 Builder issue for 2011. Our lists are compiled from figures provided by Market Opportunity Research Enterprises (MORE); they are based on the number of deed transfers during 2010. Every effort has been made to assure the accuracy of the information.
