Now that the weather is turning around in Texas, you might be thinking about starting the home search process. Once you’re viewing homes in person, you may be tempted to fall into the trap that ensnares many buyers: letting relatively small flaws or easy fixes influence your decision about a home. Vetoing homes because of patchy yards or outdated fixtures can lead to months of frustrated searching and a shorter and shorter list of potential properties. Remember, we are presently in a seller’s market in many of our communities in and around the city. Those few homes that appear to be in perfect condition will most likely have buyers competing with multiple offers.  It’s typical to encounter properties with minor cosmetic issues—these shouldn’t be confused with major issues such as a crac...

Spring has arrived in South Texas and the San Antonio market area. If you’re wondering how the market trends have been, let’s take a look at the month of February 2019. The median price for homes was up 8.3 percent from last year at a price of $195,000. The number of closed sales in February was 984, which was a 3.0 percent increase from the previous year. Days on the market was 56 days on an average, and the months of inventory was down to 2.9 months.  Consequently, it’s still very much a seller’s market for the most part in and around the city. If you’re thinking about or planning to sell, Now is a great time to Find Out How Much Your Home is Worth, and get it on the market in time for the summer rush, since school will be out before you know it within the next two months.
