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.

PCS’ing and Pets

IMG_1792I think the hardest part about keeping up a blog about military relocation and PCS’ing is the number of topics to choose from! Over the years I have discovered that there are so many areas of our lives that are impacted by frequent moves – even ones you wouldn’t normally consider. When we moved from Fort Sill, Oklahoma to Presidio of Monterey in California we discovered that our French Bulldog Bubba was prone to anxiety attacks while travelling. He would get carsick and woozy and begin to hyperventilate. My husband, needless to say, was thrilled when Bubba had to sit on his lap through New Mexico and Arizona in the middle of summer with the window open!

Since that time, we have PCS’d twice more with pets. If I had known then what I know now, I would have done the following:

  1. Make sure all shots are up to date and keep copies of EVERYTHING with the records you are travelling with
  2. Check if your pets need to be licensed at your new place of residence
  3. Micro-chip! Pets have been known to wander off  and get lost when they are enroute or at the new location. And don’t forget to update your contact information.
  4. Find a good kennel and vet in your new town. Word of mouth is the best way to identify these. Feel free to drop me a comment if you want to know more about those in my area.
  5. Get pet prozac if you think they’ll need it! You can take the edge off your pet’s anxiety with a quick trip to the vet for a prescription.
  6. Be sure you plan your route carefully – stay in pet friendly hotels. This one is a biggie because not all base lodging allowed pets when we made our trek cross-country. Here is a helpful link

Those are my top six! In addition are the obvious – enough food for travel, water bowls & bottled water, & don’t forget their leashes! Happy Traveling!
