Lackland And Randolph October 2015 Home Sales Report

FALL COLORS AT LOST MAPLES STATE PARK

FALL COLORS AT LOST MAPLES STATE PARK

So far in 2015, the neighborhoods surrounding San Antonio’s military bases and installations have experienced the most vigorous homes sales market since 2006.

San Antonio area home values have risen steadily, particularly during last 18 months, and average list and sold prices of homes near Randolph AFB,  Lackland AFB, and Fort Sam Houston have risen accordingly.  An approximate 6% price increase is likely for the year.  The market has favored sellers over buyers for many months – a situation that’s likely to continue well into the coming year.

Now, as the typical less active fall and winter home sales season sets in, San Antonio’s residential sales activity is projected to cool a bit.  Nonetheless,  because the metropolitan area is attracting so many home buyers this fall, it’s likely the market cool off will be unusually brief.  Barring unforeseen negative changes in the area’s strong and stable economic environment, next year’s spring and summer home sales market should see aggressive buyer competition for available new and resale homes, steadily inflated prices, and high potential for an area wide shortage of homes for sale.

San Antonio Air Force Bases Area Home Sales Report

FALL COLORS AT LOST MAPLES STATE PARK

FALL COLORS AT LOST MAPLES STATE PARK

Greetings and Happy Thanksgivings Wishes from the SanAntonioHomeQuest.com Realty Solutions Team.

Here’s our November 2014  home sales report for the areas surrounding Lackland Air Force Base, Randolph Air Force Base, and SAMMC and Fort Sam Houston.
If you are hoping to buy or sell a home near a San Antonio military base this fall, you’ll find it’s an unusual realty market for the season.
Why?
It should be the slow season for San Antonio residential realty sales activity.  During the fall and early winter months,  home sale activity usually slows significantly, the inventory of available homes rises, and residential listing and sales prices moderate.However, this fall, conditions in the neighborhoods near our military bases are remarkably different.  More homes were sold in the area in September and October this year than were sold during the previous record setting months for September and October in 2006.  Because of the  unseasonable high demand, home prices near the San Antonio military bases are steadily rising, listings are selling quickly, and the inventory of new and resale homes is approaching the shortage level.
According to a recent article by the analysts at SanAntonioHomeQuest.com, “Due to its strong economy driven primarily by the energy and service sectors, San Antonio has set a long and enviable record of being relatively immune to national realty market trends.  During the recent Great Recession, San Antonio was only minimally touched by the nation’s mortgage loan crisis and realty market downturn.  Today, as prospective home buyers in most of the nation’s large metropolitan markets are sitting on the sidelines waiting for better economic conditions and lower prices, San Antonio home buyers are actively scouring the market looking for the best opportunity to take advantage of low residential mortgage rates and hoping to buy a home quickly to stay ahead of rising prices and declining inventory.”
It’s almost certain that the aggressive home sales market in the neighborhoods near Lackland, Randolph, and SAMMC/Fort Sam Houston will last well into next summer and that home prices will continue to rise as the supply of available homes decreases.
As for this fall and early winter, San Antonio’s active and retired uniformed services home sellers and buyers will still find relatively balanced negotiation conditions.  Sellers should be confident that their San Antonio homes are exceptionally marketable and, if well prepared, will sell quickly.  Buyers can expect to find highly affordable homes near most of the military bases, especially when the homes are  compared to similar properties near bases located close to other large cities.
If you are looking to purchase a home in the next 60 days, here’s something to keep in mind.  As we approach the end of the year, look for buyer incentives to be offered in new home subdivisions because the builders will be eager to sell their inventory before the new year.  Home builders don’t usually haggle on their base prices, however they might be willing to throw in additional incentives to encourage you to buy.  To find out where and by whom new home incentives are being offered, call us.
That’s all for this November’s San Antonio home sales report.
We specialize in helping active and retired uniformed services meet their residential realty needs.

August 2014 San Antonio Home Sales Near Military Bases

Freedom flight over Randolph Air Force Base

It’s August in the Alamo city and, after a relatively mild early summer, the neighborhoods near San Antonio’s

military bases are now experiencing occasional 100 degree plus days.  
 
August heat and the start of the school season usually herald a significant slowdown in home sales.  Last month, we predicted the market was slowing in a manner consistant with the normal seasonal cycle, but now it seems this year is different.  Bouyed by an burst of favorable economic reports in July, the entire San Antonio area and particularly the subdivisions near Randolph Air Base, Lackland Air Force Base, Fort Sam Houston, and Camp Bullis, are now projected to have an unsually active home sales season extending through August and into September 2014.
Why is San Antonio’s  homes sales high season lasting so long this year?  Here are the contributing factors.  
San Antonio has become one of the nation’s leading economic powerhouses.  The city is next door to the Eagle Ford oil and gas boom.  It has a very large active duty and retired military community.  Its dynamic economy, balanced demographic trends, and glowing long term growth projections reflect a large and vibrant metropolitan area with a strong, stable, and growth oriented personality. 
 
This year, San Antonio’s strong economy is on track to generate either the second or third best home sales record since the record breaking 2006 sales year.  It’s a factor that’s especially important for the moderately priced neighborhoods near the area’s military facilities.
 
What do today’s market conditions mean to local home sellers and buyers.  Here are the key indicators comparing July 2013 and July 2014:
 
Home sales were up 5.09% from 2219 to 2332 units.
 
The average list price was up 5.56% from $223,036 to $235,429.
 
The average sales price was up 6.17% from $215,939 to $229, 254.
 
The time on the market to sell a home was down 10.20% from 98 days to 88 days.
 
According to San Antonio’s Multiple Listing Service, as of 10 August 2014, there were 156 fewer homes on the market than last year and the average price of available homes for sale had increased 7.11% from $311,226 to $333,355.
 
Because the inventory of new and resale homes for sale is unusually low, the current seller’s market is likely to continue into the fall before trending toward a more balanced market in the winter and next spring.
 
That means that active duty and retired military home sellers can continue to expect offers close to 97% of their asking price and military community buyers can expect to encounter less seller flexibility and harder negotiations.  Nonetheless, buyers need not to be discouraged because San Antonio area home prices near its military bases are much more reasonable compared to much higher prices for homes in other military communities.
 
That’s the news for our August 2014 San Antonio home sales report.  We encourage reader comments and recommendations about how to make our reports more informative.

May 2014 Homes For Sale Near Randolph AFB And Lackland AFB

Home With Pool Near Lackland AFB

Home With Pool Near Randolph AFB

It’s strange to be able to repeat a monthly San Antonio residential realty market report, but,  for the homes for sale near Randolph AFB and Lackland AFB,  all of the indicators and factors reported in May 2013 are reflected in this May’s  report.

Specifically –

In the subdivisions nearest San Antonio’s military installations,  new and resale home sales are booming.

The inventory of available new and resale homes is unusually low and struggling to keep up with demand.

The best listings are quickly going under contract – many within hours of coming on the market.

Home prices are steadily rising.

In the most popular neighborhoods, sellers are receiving multiple simultaneous offers for their homes.

It’s easy to see why our realty market is booming. Every economic factor leading to a dynamic home sales environment is positive for San Antonio — strong job growth, low unemployment, state and local policies favoring business development, low residential mortgage rates, and the presence of one of the nation’s boom town shale oil field right next door to Randolph and Lackland.

So, it’s little wonder that San Antonio is currently ranked as having one of the nation’s top 5 large metropolitian residential realty markets.

Does this mean active and retired AF and other uniformed services  home buyers should despair of finding an affordably priced San Antonio area home near the conveniences offered by the area’s military bases?

Absolutely not!

Home buyers and sellers can be confident that, although our market is big (after all – it’s TEXAS) and active (especially this year), it’s still unique for its price moderation and affordability.

So, if you’re hoping to sell or buy a San Antonio area home in 2014, it’s time to act.
