Every day, new families are calling the Upstate home! Greenville is growing in popularity, and city developers, architects, and homebuilders are working hard to keep up with the demand. Last year, Dan Hamilton of Greenville’s top-rated real estate team, wrote a blog post diving into some of Greenville’s most amenity-filled communities, helping readers in search of all-inclusive lifestyles find their dream home.

In this updated post, Dan is sharing FIVE new communities with you (and not just new to you, but new to the Upstate!) that feature gorgeous homes AND amazing amenities packages.
