San Antonio is still in great shape, stabilizing after two banner years. It is turning into a "normal" market, with fewer buyers and more homes for sale; resale sales were 17% less in June 2007 than a year earlier. The inventory is up by 72% in the same time period. Many local real estate professionals blame the relentless rain, and now that the rain has moved on (for now), there should be an increase in showings and sales, especially as the beginning of the school year approaches. Another reason for the decrease in buyers is that fewer investors and second-home buyers are buying than in 2005 and 2006.But these possibly unexciting statistics are in contrast to the market in other states, and to the past two years in which San Antonio has seen unprecedented growth and appreciation. That ...

Sellers  *A pre-inspection before listing can help with the sale of the property.I inspected a property today that had so many items in need of repair. These people did no maintenance at all to this home. The seller indicated they had a friend that came over to check out the home, ya right. There are so many reasons to hire and Advanced Inspector, (not a friend or family member)  By having a pre-inspection, the seller can help eliminate any surprise findings. The seller can make repairs before placing the home on the market and possibly even increase the value of the home.  *A pre-inspection can also serve as a great marketing tool. Sellers are required by law to disclose any known defects in the home. Having a pre-inspection report available for the buyer will tell the buyer the seller...

               Purchasing a home can be a complicated and confusing process, especially for first-time buyers.  Throughout the process, first-time home buyers will encounter a variety of unfamiliar real state terms. There are several key terms associates with purchasing real estate that are helpful to learn.              For example, many buyers confuse the terms broker and salesperson.  A broker is a properly licensed individual, or corporation, who serves as a special agent in the purchase and sale of real estate, a salesperson is an individual employed or associated by written agreement by the broker as an independent contractor.  The salesperson facilitates the purchase or sale of real estate.              Once you decide to purchase, a salesperson will prepare a sales contract to p...

1. Clean the House This sounds so simple yet home owners often overlook preparing for the inspector.  Clean homes say you care and take care of the home. Besides, the buyer may be with the inspector. 2. Scheduled Time Sometimes home inspectors are early. If an inspector makes an appointment with you for 9:00 a.m., have the house ready for inspection at 8:30.  3. Leave the Utilities Connected The home inspector will need to turn on the stove, run the dishwasher, test the furnace and air conditioning, so leave the utilities on, especially if the house is vacant. It's impossible to check receptacles for grounding and reverse polarity if the power is turned off. Without utilities, the inspector will have to reschedule, which could delay the closing of your transaction. 4. Provide Workspace...

As a Realtor specializing in rental properties for investors, I spend a lot of time looking at market data on both sales and rentals, both price and days on market, for properties offering comparable features. I compare the sales price to typical rental rates in various neighborhoods, looking for cash flow. Over the last couple of years, I've found that prices for homes in the North East school district, which covers north-central and -east San Antonio, to be a bit lower than they were last year. Several neighborhoods look as if they'd be good prospects for rental investment.One of the most important factors for successful rental properties is their proximity to major employers. The northeast has access to Washington Mutual headquarters, Fort Sam Houston, Randolph AFB, AT&T headquarters...

THE COMPLETE PICTURE If you've never had a home inspection, you would probably be surprised by how thorough the home inspector will be when conducting the home inspection. A home inspection should take at least two hours, and may stretch to four hours or longer depending on the size and condition of the house. The inspector will look at every area of the home. The Inspectors report will cover the condition of the home's heating system; central air conditioning system; interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic and insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows, doors, foundation and structure. The average cost of an inspection depends on square footage, number of A/C’s and other areas such as swimming pool, hot tub, spa, septic system, water well, age and location of the h...

Okay, so things have changed! We are moving into a buyer's market. NO NEED TO WORRY, just be prepared. You need to stand out from the competition and Pricing Right is THE MOST IMPORTANT! Buyer's always want deals and with the recent aggressive escalation in sales prices, they are becoming very choosy. So, let's talk about the things you can do to make them look your direction!Hire A REALTOR- They advertise to everyone and you only pay them when they sell your home. What could be better? PRICING- The Most Important! Staging- Make your home look and feel like a Model Home. Offer Incentives to the Buyer- Changing carpet or paid closing costs. Get A Pre-Sale Home Inspection- This allows you to make the appropriate changes to your home that may slow down the sale. Be Flexible- Allow Agents t...

In order to find a real estate broker or agent who meets your needs and makes your buying or selling experience a positive one, Century 21 Real Estate Corporation recommends you: 1.      DO NOT  blindly walk into or call a neighborhood firm and ask for an agent at random. 2.      Ask friends and family for recommendations. 3.      Interview several real estate agents: Find out their history with the brokerage, their experience and background. Gauge their knowledge of your favorite towns. Ask for a list of previous clients and their phone numbers. 4.      Pay attention to whether a potential agent is listening closely to what you say. Is he or she asking follow-up questions which prompt further explanation and help him or her understand exactly your needs and wants? 5.      Give a potent...

My market is Greater Austin, but I was born and raised in San Antonio. The area is really changing. There was an annual housing forecast sponsored by the San Antonio Board of REALTORS®, but I missed it. I'm sure many of you did as well, but do not fret, it is available online. The good thing about this housing forecast for 2007 is that it includes national data and statistics as well, so will give you good insight into what's happening in the U.S as well as Texas. I've been jealously watching the San Antonio market for the past three years. Austin, of course, is THE BEST place to live in the entire United States, but San Antonio is a strong contender for an affordable, fun place to live. San Antonio is great not just because of the San Antonio Spurs, whom I was a fan of before they were...

Passion In Action Pardon me, but may I have this dance?Sunday, December 10th, in the newspaper, I found an article in the S.A.Life section entitled, "Passion in Action." It is subtitled, "Argentine tango stirs the soul." Yes, you guessed it, it's about dancing - specifically, it's about the Argentine Tango.There are a myriad of dance styles. There's the more refined and elegant styles like the Waltz and the Foxtrot. There is also the fast paced style called Swing - the Lindyhop, Charleston, and Boogie Woogie are a few nuances of Swing. There's Country and Western dancing - the two step, county western waltz, and line dancing are a few sub styles within this genre. And there's even what is called "Street Dance." Yep, the bump and grind would be a style within this genre, but also breakda...
