Greer named a top city for young families in South Carolina

The City of Greer is among the best places for young families to settle down and raise a family in South Carolina according to a survey by online financial site NerdWallet.

Greer ranked 12th in the state in the survey, which is designed to better inform young families and parents-to-be by analyzing cities and towns across the state according to five criteria:

Public school ratings
Median home value
• Cost of homeownership
Median income
• Economic growth

“The City of Greer has been one of the state’s fastest-growing cities over the past decade and young families have comprised a large percentage of that growth,” City Administrator Ed Driggers said. “They have discovered that the city strives to always improve the quality of life for residents through such services as parks and recreation, special events, and a rapid response to needs. I believe this survey validates the high quality of life our residents enjoy.”
