June 2013 San Antonio AFB Area Homes For Sale Report

Early June heralds the advent of hot and dry summer weather for all of the San Antonio air force bases, especially Lackland AFB which tends to one of the hottest  areas around town.

San Antonio and all of south Texas has already been exceptionally warm and arid for many months, but, in late May and early June, most of the region was blessed with heavy refreshing rainstorms.  Nonetheless, the weatherman sees typically hot and dry summer conditions ahead.

Do the home sales markets  in communities around Lackland AFB, Randolph AFB, and Ft. Sam Houston mirrow the weather?   Yes, absolutely  — they are  HOT and will likely stay so through the summer PCS season and into the coming fall.

Why is Military City USA’s realty market so hot this year?

1.  Across the nation, home contracts have increased to a 3 year high. The trend is reflected in San Antonio where, this May, home sales were up 21% over May 2012.

2.  Although mortgage rates are gradually edging up, the increase is marginal and rates are still favorable for home buying.  Because of the influx of new residents, and particularly the growth of the local active and retired military communities, it’s unlikely that anything other than a very large increase in mortgage rates will cool San Antonio’s hot residential market.

3.  Foreclosures are way down locally and across the nation and, because of San Antonio’s large average home sales price increase in the last 18 months, fewer military home owners now owe more on their mortgages than their homes are worth.

4.  Oil and gas production in south Texas’ vast Eagle Ford shale oil field, is up 77% over last year – topping 500,000 barrels of crude per day. The area’s booming oil industry is bringing many new businesses and residents to San Antonio, especially into the new home and resale home communities near Randolph AFB and Lackland AFB.   Consequently, AF home sellers should expect good prospects for selling their homes and AF home buyers should be ready for hard negotiations if they want to buy close to one of the area military bases.

5.   Compared to May 2012, the following key residential realty market indicators are all exceptionally positive for San Antonio and the communities nearest the city’s military bases:

pending home sales are up 17%,

list prices are up 10%,

latest closed sale prices are up 21%, and

the median sales price for the most recently closed home sales is up 11%.

The bottom line is this – because of its solid economic and demographic foundations, San Antonio is one of the nation’s bright spots for home ownership and rental investments.

m_P_cmls_52088_sanantoniohomequest_com
 
The latest report from the San Antonio Board of Realtors® (SABOR) should interest local Air Force home buyers and sellers.  All SABOR area realty market trends in the communities near Lackland AFB, Randolph AFB, and Fort Sam Houston  are up significantly.
 
These key indicators tell the story:
 
The middle price for April 2013 listings was  $168,100.  That’s a 6 percent increase from April 2012’s $158,400.
 
The average price for April 2013 listings was $202,864.  That’s a  5 percent increase over last April’s average home price of $193,394.
 
April 2013 closed sales totaled  1,998.  That a whopping 21 percent increase over April 2012’s 1650 sales.
 
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.

Oil Fields Near Lackland and Randolph AFB Impact on Homes Sales

 

In a recent article in the San Antonio Business Journal, Mike Thomas reports “Oil production in the Eagle Ford Shale was up 74 percent in February compared to one year ago to set an all-time high.”

San Antonio’s  Lackland and Randolph Air Force Bases are close enough to the Eagle Ford Shale  oil fields to feel the economic impact of what is fast becoming one of North America’s major oil finds.

The signifigance to San Antonio’s Air Force families is that there’s higher demand for homes in the communities near the bases.  This, in turn, has caused a dramatic increase in residential property sales, higher home sale prices, and elevated residential property tax values.

If you are planning to buy or sell a home soon near Lackland or Randolph AFB, contact Randy Kelley (210) 863-2661 or Stephanie Kelley (210) 867-8743 for advice and assistance.  Their goal is to help you get the best price, terms, and conditions for your residential real estate investment.
