February 2017 San Antonio Air Force Home Sales

homes-for-sale.jpgIt’s mid-February in San Antonio. The weather has been unusually warm and the home sales market around Lackland, Randolph, and Fort Sam Houston is unusually hot for the season.

2016 saw the most active home sales market in San Antonio’s history. The 2017 home sales market is projected to beat the 2016 market

So, what does that mean for active duty and retired Air Force home buyers and sellers in the San Antonio area?

Those looking to sell a home should be pleased. If the seller has held the home for at least 3 years and assuming good home preparation and adequate marketing, the seller can expect to leave the closing table with money in hand.

Those looking to purchase a home for a bargain price might face a negotiation headwind because it’s a seller’s market, new and resale homes prices are rising rapidly, and the inventory of available homes for sale is dismally low. In fact, it’s been that way around San Antonio for months. Let’s face the facts. Bargain homes are as scarce as hen’s teeth in and around the Alamo City.

Nonetheless, San Antonio homes remain reasonably priced when compared to homes in other large metropolitan markets around the country.

Our advice to both prospective retired and active duty and retired home buyers and sellers is the same.  If selling, ask a good Realtor® to give you a through analysis of your home’s value.  If buying, ask for a comprehensive overview of the home sales market in your preferred search area.

If you’re selling a home, an accurately composed Multiple Listing Service (MLS) listing report attached to a well organized marketing plan is key. Your Realtor® should make sure your listing is broadcast out of the MLS to every prominent internet search engine worldwide.

If you’re buying, rely on your Realtor® to help you find the best listings matching your needs. Your Realtor® is your property value analyst and negotiator. Buying a home involves hours of detailed and diligent hard work. Let your Realtor do the work for you.

Whether buying or selling, we offer our services.

April 2016 Home Sales Report for Lackland, Randolph, And Fort Sam Houston

mortgage-loan-images.jpgLast year, the neighborhoods near San Antonio’s Military Bases saw historically active home sales. Now, in the the 4th month of 2016, it looks certain that 2016’s home sales record will be easily surpassed by this year’s extraordinary market.

The reason is simple – Texas has a booming economy and it seems everyone wants to relocate to San Antonio. Mix in the existing residents buying homes around town and you have exceptionally active home sales atmosphere.

The impact on San Antonio’s active and retired military families is enormous.

As opposed to the dark days following the 2008 great recession, very few San Antonio military homeowners now owe more on their homes than they are worth. Foreclosures are now rare. Most homeowners who’ve kept their homes in a well maintained condition and held the property for at least 3  years can expect to sell for a profit or at least break even.  Of course, there are some neighborhoods where homes aren’t selling too well but few are near San Antonio’s military bases.

Here is some important information for San Antonio’s military families from sanantoniohomequest.com, “In the San Antonio area, the majority of homes sold are priced under $200,000.  Homes priced between $200,000 and $500,000 make up approximately 41% of the sales market and homes priced over $500,000 make up only approximately 5% of the Sales.  San Antonio homes sell quickly – presently averaging only around 70 days on the market.  Exceptionally well prepared homes sell much quicker, sometimes going under a firm contract in less than 2 weeks.  This year, there’s been keen competition for the best homes and bidding wars are common.”

So, looking down the road to the July sales peak, what can San Antonio’s active duty and retired Air Force, Army, Navy, and Coast Guard home buyers and sellers expect.

The average home seller can expect to receive high buyer interest, more competition when the new and resale home inventory rises in May and June and perhaps some weakening of the area’s months long seller’s market as more homes come on the market.

The average home buyer can expect to find a satisfactory inventory of available homes, excellent mortgage rates, and a slightly better negotiating posture than has been seen in San Antonio for many months.
