July 2014 Sees Home Market Peaking Near San Antonio Bases

he_july.jpg
Entering July 2014, there are signs that San Antonio’s long lasting home sellers’ market is trending toward a more balanced condition favoring neither sellers nor buyers in the communities nearest Randolph AFB, Lackland AFB, and Fort Sam Houston.  Compared to July 2013, there are more resale and newly constructed homes available near the bases while at the same time there fewer homes under contract.  Although home prices continue to rise slowly, the ratio between the average list to sale price is slowly decreasing.
 
How likely is it that the San Antonio military base areas residential sales markets have passed their peak for 2014?  Probably.  Here’s why.

 
Based on many years performance, San Antonio’s residential sales market usually follows a predictable seasonal pattern.  Highest sales activity is mid-April through mid-June.  Sales start to fall off during the hot summer months.  The market cools significantly during the fall and winter months.   Of course, for the areas near the bases, the summer PCS cycle has some impact and, in some years, might prolong the sales high season into through July and into August.
 
In all areas, the quest for homes featuring pools drops drastically after school starts in late August.  That market won’t become active again until  the coming spring. 
 
The least active home sales months are December and January.
 
Looking forward, San Antonio’s exceptionally strong economy is expected to carry the Alamo City’s home sales market through the expected season dip into a strong rebound next spring.
 
If you’re contemplating selling your San Antonio home but can wait for better conditions, should you hold off until market conditions improve?  Not necessarily.  Because home sales stay strong throughout the year in some of the neighborhoods located near Lackland, Randolph, and Fort Sam, you should seek the advice of a realty sales professional who knows the Joint Base San Antonio market before deciding  whether to sell or not. 
 
If you are hoping to buy a San Antonio area home in the coming months, keep this in mind.  The market is improving for you, VA, FHA, and conventional mortgage interest rates remain exceptionally low, and there’s an ample supply of newly constructed and resale homes for your consideration particularly near Randolph and Lacklan.  So, seek out the best residential realty buyers agent with military relocation experience that you can find and go for it!
 
Whether home seller or buyer, ours is a 100% experience team that’s ready to help you get the best price, terms, and conditions for your realty investment.  Contact Stephanie (210) 867-8743 or Randy (210) 863-2661 for a free, no pressure – no obligation, consultation.

April 2014 Homes For Sale Report Near Lackland And Randolph AFB

homes-for-sale.jpgAir Force and other uniformed services home buyers and sellers need to take heed of this April’s exceptional home sales climate in San Antonio, especially for the subdivisions nearest Lackland AFB, Randolph AFB, and the San Antonio Military Medical Center (SAMMC) at Fort Sam Houston.  

Because San Antonio is growing so fast (5th fasted growing metropolitan area in the nation), demand for housing is high, but there aren’t enough houses to go around.  This is especially true in the neighborhoods nearest San Antonio’s military bases because those neighborhoods are also very close to the Eagle Ford Shale Oil and Gas Fields.   The oil field workers and oil company staff are putting pressure on the housing inventory usually sought out by San Antonio’s incoming uniformed services personnel and in-migrating military retiree families.

Local uniformed services active duty and retired home sellers have reason to be delighted with this news because every key home sales indicator  currently favors  sellers over buyers.  Specifically,  the available home inventory is very low for a city the size of San Antonio.  Also, the average sales price for recently sold homes is 9.15% higher than a year ago and homes are selling must faster than last year.  

Even though the current market conditions  favor sellers over buyers,  if you are in the market to buy a San Antonio home, keep this in mind.  Compared to homes for sale in other large metropolitan markets, San Antonio homes are still highly affordable.   Also, although no one can offer an absolute guarantee that owning a San Antonio home is a safe financial bet,  home buyers can look to San Antonio’s long record of moderate and steady home value appreciation with assurance.

February 2014 Lackland AFB, Randolph AFB, Fort Sam Houston Homes For Sale Report

In early February 2014, here’s what’s happening with home sales in the communities closest to Lackland AFB, Randolph AFB, and Fort Sam Houston.

Everywhere we look, there are too few homes for sale and too many buyers looking for homes to buy.

So, why are home sales around San Antonio’s military bases so active this early in the year?

The Alamo City’s largest military installations are located at the front gate of the prosperous and rapidly growing Eagle Ford shale oil and natural gas field.  Demand for homes for oil industry workers is high.

Also, because  San Antonio is economically healthy, the entire San Antonio metropolitan area is attracting a diverse mix of both homegrown and inbound businesses.  Employment rate is high and the city’s well employed population is eager to find new and resale homes to buy.

So, what does the  favorable economic news mean for San Antonio’s active duty and retired uniformed services home buyers and sellers?

As reported in our recent RealtyTimes article, as of 3 February 2014:

“Reasonably priced and well prepared resale homes are selling exceptionally fast and new home builders are putting new inventory into production as quickly as possible.

There are 7847 new and resale homes listed for sale compared to 8520 one year ago.

The listings inventory is exceptionally low but will likely trend slowly upward as late winter/early spring listings are brought to market. Nonetheless, for the time being, because the market has drifted downward into the 4 months supply range, there’s a highly unbalanced market favoring sellers over buyers.

The average sales price for the most recent closings is $195,484 compared to last February’s $183,834.

Both list and sales prices are steadily rising – a trend likely to continue through the higher paced late winter/spring/early summer home sales high season.”

It’s easy to see that, presently, San Antonio’s active duty and retired uniformed services home sellers have an excellent market  for selling their homes.  The market is expected to favor home sellers at least through the end of this summer’s home selling season high season.

Nonetheless,  San Antonio’s incoming  and locally relocating uniformed services home buyers can still be confident that they can find affordable homes, especially when compared to homes in the Nation’s other large metropolitan markets.

That’s all for our February 2014 San Antonio residential realty market report.

January 2014 Lackland, Randolph, And Fort Sam Houston Homes For Sale Report

Freedom flight over Randolph Air Force Base

Freedom flight over Randolph Air Force Base

The beginning of January 2014 sees the close out of the most active San Antonio military bases area real estate market year since 2006. 

According to Steven Gragg, Chairman of the San Antonio Board of Realtors, “This year’s housing market proved even stronger than 2012, with the lowest months of inventory being reported in over six years. Every month, the total number of home sales exceeded those of their 2012 counterparts.” 

What does the future hold for San Antonio’s active duty and retired uniformed services families looking to buy or sell a San Antonio home?  Analysts predict 2014 to be at least as active as 2013.

Here’s why?  

Simply, it’s the area’s exceptionally strong economy.

Here are the facts as they apply to the communities near Lackland, Randolph, and Fort Sam Houston. 

The still developing Eagle Ford shale oil and gas field is near enough to all three installations to drive up housing demand and prices in communities  heavily populated by uniformed services families.

Furthermore,  demand for housing for employees of the city’s tourism, service industry, and medical and education institutions has simultaneously impacted on the same subdivisions.

So, here’s what’s expected for home sales for San Antonio’s  uniformed services families in January 2014 and into the following months:

• the inventory of newly constructed and resale homes will remain unusually low, 

• home list prices will increase,

• home sale prices will increase, 

• average time to sell a home will decrease, 

• pressure on the already limited new and resale home supply will increase as buyers rush to make their purchases in the face of rising mortgage interest rates,and 

• the months long sellers’ market will continue unabated. 

Despite the good news for our uniformed services home sellers, prospective uniformed services home buyers should take heart in knowing that, historically, San Antonio has a consistent record of moderate but steady home value appreciation and sales market stability. Furthermore, San Antonio homes near the military bases are still very affordable. 

That’s the good news for our January 2014 Lackland, Randolph, and Fort Sam Houston homes for sale report. 

Wishing you a safe, happy, healthy, and prosperous new year, we’re Stephanie and Randy Kelley, Realtors® at Keller Williams Legacy, San Antonio, Texas.
