I know we have all heard about Chrysler closing dealerships, and I was surprised to see an article in one of my favorite business sites for SC talk about how the Upstate was spared.  Sorry but just because only one dealership, the one in Walhalla, is being closed is not exactly what I would call the Upstate being spared. Sure it could have been worse, but this means someone is worrying today about their job. It has been several years since I owned a Chrysler but I want a new Jeep so bad it is about to kill me. One of the new 4 door Wranglers. I had a 84 CJ7 and it was a great vehicle. Not a luxury sport utility by any means but if I loved it anyways. Fun dependable, I hate that Walhalla is losing a great local dealership. But I guess they can always drive to nearby Seneca.

The area we are in here in Upstate South Carolina (Oconee County, Walhalla, Seneca, West Union, Anderson, Salem, Westminster) is doing alright as far as home market values go. Better than alright as compared to many places in the country and even in this state we guess. March prices here in 08 compared to March of 07 show that we are up a bit over 6% on the median price of homes, condos, and villas sold and also up over 1.3% from last year to this year currently. The Upstate area here in SC is becoming more and more popular, and we are seeing quite a few travelers coming in this spring to check out what the county has to offer as far as retirement and second homes go. The negative though, that is effecting so many Realtors in this area, is that the number of homes sold is down over 21% ...
