The housing market here is hotter than an August day in Spartanburg. “It's most definitely a seller's market,” said home builder Manning Lynch of Spartanburg. “I'm selling everything I'm building well before I get finished.” With prices moving higher, many first-time buyers are being forced from the higher-priced Greenville market to neighboring Spartanburg County, according to Patty Wilds, agent with Century 21 Upstate. Wilds said the demand for housing will continue to rise as more companies come to the Upstate or expand their workforce.“Those areas will see a great amount of growth,” Wilds said. “With Spartanburg on the cusp of growing its downtown, we'll have a lot to offer to a family moving into the area.”
