Commenting on the highly favorable market, Steven Gragg, SABOR Chairman Of The Board for 2013 said this about the area’s booming market, “With mortgage rates and home prices remaining low, buyers can easily find something within their means without having to compromise. The rise in home sales each month shows the confidence consumers have in their buying power.”SABOR President and CEO Angela Shields added, “This steady growth, along with the city’s affordability and diverse culture, makes San Antonio a unique and desirable place to call home.”

Analysts see the favorable sales trends as beneficial for local Air Force home sellers who have waited months for their homes to be worth more than their mortgage balances.  They are now more likely to break even or sell at a profit.
As for Air Force home buyers, despite the price increases, homes remain highly affordable in the areas near San Antonio’s military bases.
