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.

July 2014 Sees Home Market Peaking Near San Antonio Bases

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.

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.
