Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending a closing with another happy seller. He was one of my first property-management clients, back in 2004, and I leased his former home for him when he was transferred overseas. Later, he was transferred back to Austin and took over managing the house himself.
My client contacted me again a couple of months ago and said he was ready to sell the house, since his folks no longer lived in the neighborhood and his tenants had moved out. Now he has his sale proceeds and he is ready to move on with his life.
The new owners are a retired couple who I think are going to love this neighborhood. It seems to be popular with seniors, since most of the homes are one story and it's close to the South Texas Medical Center. People walk their dogs and jog in this neighborhood. Often while driving by, they will slow down to greet each other, even stopping to chat with neighbors working in their yards.
It's a little bittersweet to sell a home with some history--I know because I went through a similar experience. I moved out, rented, and then later sold the first home I lived in when I moved back to San Antonio. It is three streets away.
Here's the link to the Real Estate Show of the home.
