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.

Lackland AFB And Randolph AFB Area Nov 2015 Homes Sales Report

FALL COLORS AT LOST MAPLES STATE PARK

FALL COLORS AT LOST MAPLES STATE PARK

First, happy Thanksgiving to one and all!

Now, here’s your November 2015 home sales report for the communities near Lackland AFB, Randolph AFB, and Fort Sam Houston.

If you’re hoping to buy or sell a home near San Antonio’s military bases this fall, you’ll find it’s an unusual realty market for the season.
Why?
Usually, in the fall and winter, home sales slow down, the number of available homes rises, and prices moderate. But,  this fall, circumstances are very different.  More homes were sold around the Alamo City’s military bases  in September and October of this year than were sold during the previous record setting months for September and October in 2014. Consequently, because of the unseasonable high demand against low inventory, home prices continue to increase.
Unless there’s an unexpected downturn in the area’s thriving economy, it’s likely that the current aggressive home sales market around Lackland, Randolph, and Fort Sam Houston will last through next summer with home prices rising and the inventory of new and resale homes remaining low.
According to a recent article at sanantoniohomequest.com, “These factors add up to an unbalanced home sales market. Sellers have the upper hand and should be confident that their San Antonio homes are exceptionally marketable and, if well prepared, will sell quickly.  Buyers can expect to experience frustration with the limited home supply and will find tough negotiations to acquire the home of their dreams.”
If you plan to purchase a newly built home in November and December, keep this in mind.  As the end of the year approaches, look for increased buyer incentives  in the many new home subdivisions near Lackland and Randolph.  That’s because builders are always eager to sell their inventory before the new year.  Although home builders don’t usually haggle on their base prices,  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 have specialized in representing San Antonio’ active and retired military families since 1992. If you have home buying or selling questions, need San Antonio area realty or mortgage loan advice or assistance, or just want to learn more about the residential markets around  Lackland, Randolph, and Fort Sam Houston, please contact Stephanie Kelley at

October 2015 Lackland And Randolph AFB Home Sales Report

san_antonio_in_the_news_images.jpgIt’s great news for Lackland AFB, Randolph AFB, and Fort Sam Houston area active and retired military families looking to sell or buy a San Antonio area home this fall.

Recently, the San Antonio Board Of Realtors released its third quarter housing report.  It shows an 11 percent increase in the number of homes sold in the areas most attractive to Fort Sam Houston service members, and a 4.8 percent increase in Wilson County subdivisions close to Randolph AFB.  Lackland AFB area subdivisions experienced a 6.7% increase.

With the San Antonio unemployment rate hovering around 3.7%, the increased sales volume is an indicator of the San Antonio metropolitan area’s dynamic economy.  Home foreclosures are down significantly and fewer active duty military families are upside down in their mortgages.  That means fewer military homeowners are resorting to leasing out their homes instead of selling them as short sales or worse – at a loss.

Since the slower fall home sales season has set in, it’s likely the residential market will be slightly better for homebuyers seeking a better deal.  Home value inflation is moderating, there are more homes available to buy, and the San Antonio metropolitan area’s long and strong sellers’ market will likely cool just a little bit until it kicks back into high gear in late February.

So, if you are looking to sell your home soon and you can afford to wait, should you hold off until early next year?  Only if you prefer not to show your home during the holidays.  Otherwise, if you prepare the property well and market your it now, it’s likely it will garner an acceptable offer well before the end of 2015.

If you’re looking to buy a home soon, you should find better conditions when it comes to negotiating a better deal for your new or resale home purchase.

That’s all for our October 2015 Lackland AFB, Randolph AFB, and Fort Sam Houston area homes sales report.  Please contact us if you want more information about home sales in your specific area of interest.

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.
