San Antonio’s strong economy continues to have a positive impact on area home sales.  Here are some recent indicators of how strong the Alamo City and surrounding area’s economy this month:

In August 2017, hiring was up in Texas.  Texas unemployment rate was 4.3%, but San Antonio’s rate was down to 4.1%.  Texas hiring gains accounted for 12.9% of all job gains in the nation, the highest percentage of any state.  Texas is expecting double the job growth of last year.

The German Super Market chain Lidl is set to open several stores in the San Antonio area, the first one to be located on the west side by Alamo Ranch and Lone Star Parkway.

Target is set to hire 100,000 holiday season temporary workers this year.  San Antonio’s many Target stores will soon start hiring local seasonal temps.

A new San Antonio northwest side neighborhood is being built with 250 rental homes, size ranging from 1400 to 2000 square feet.  Expected rent is to be between $1800 and $2200.

September 2017 San Antonio Home Sales News

san_antonio_in_the_news_images.jpgThere’s lots of good news about home buying selling in and around San Antonio.

First, the 2017 home sales high season ended in July.  That means the inventory of available homes for sale is increasing,  seller asking prices are moderating, and buyers are likely to gain a little more leverage in making their offers.  That doesn’t mean that the San Antonio’s protracted home seller’s market is over.  It’s just not quite as strong.  So, when it comes to negotiating,  home sellers will likely remain in the driver’s seat for many more months to come.

Why is San Antonio’s home sales market so strong this year?  It’s because there’s lots of positive economic and demographic news for the entire south Texas area.  The Texas Triangle area between San Antonio, Dallas and Houston has 66% of Texas’ population – about 18 million people.  It has had 80% of the state’s population growth since 2000, accounts for 77% of the state’s economy, and has a job growth rate that’s 3 times that of New York and 5 times that of Los Angeles.  53 of the nation’s Fortune 500 Companies are headquartered in Texas Triangle cities.  Two of the nation’s five largest metropolitan areas are located within the triangle — the first time in history that one state has dominated the nation’s urban centers.

So, what does that mean for San Antonio families when it’s time to sell or buy a home?  Simply this.  Of the three major metropolitan home markets in the Texas Triangle, San Antonio’s market presently is the most stable and offers some of the best prepared most affordable homes around.  Although homes will sell slower during the fall and winter sales season, there are still many quality homes for sale and the market has room to add more homes to the inventory.   So, if you are considering selling your home or buying a home, don’t hesitate – the market is still right for you.
