Emerging Neighborhoods in the Southern US
As a seasoned real estate agent in the US Southern market, I have had experience firsthand living and working in this market. There are many factors that would consider a city an emerging neighborhood, such as economic growth, job opportunities, local activities, affordability, and high-quality school systems. Let’s take a look at 4 of the many emerging neighborhoods in the Southern United States real estate market that add a fresh new outlook to the area.
Greenville, South Carolina
Greenville, South Carolina, is an up-and-coming area in the southeast! They offer a plethora of art and entertainment options, as well as a mix of dining spaces and events. Greenville also has many parks that are perfect for families in the area. The West End district is a popular place to live with trendy apartments that are close to places to work and play.
Raleigh, North Carolina
Raleigh, North Carolina is a few hours east of Charlotte and becoming a city known for research and technology. The local universities, such as Duke and the University of North Carolina have contributed immensely to the city’s job growth and innovation. This has led to an increase in demand for housing from young professionals and families.
Augusta, Georgia, located in Eastern Georgia is an iconic and historic city that thousands of people call home. Augusta is widely known for hosting the Masters Golf Tournament, as well as its unique dining scene. Augusta is a hotspot for many young professionals pursuing careers in healthcare, cyber, and the military. Toward the city, there are many cottage-style homes perfect for young families.

Nashville, Tennessee is the heart of country music as well as a hotspot for southern living. The Edgehill area just south of Nashville is becoming a great place for young professionals to call home. Edgehill is close to large universities, such as Vanderbilt and Belmont, as well as places to visit around town, like cafes, event venues, and clothing boutiques.
