But I couldn't get it to play, so I have created a virtual tour in YouTube as well. If that doesn't show up in your browser either, please click this link to 431 Woodway Forest instead!

bexar county homes: No more baby talk - 05/14/14 11:56 PM
This morning I was pouring cereal into a bowl, and the rattling noise made one of my cats run into the kitchen, thinking I was going to give her an early lunch of dry cat food. I kindly told her in a high-pitched voice, "This isn't kitty food, this is mommy food!"
And then it struck me: what is the point of talking baby talk to cats? My cats know their names, and possibly each others' names, and the meaning of "Get down!" (although they pretend they don't). It's not logical to think ungrammatical sentences or short words would be any … (3 comments)

bexar county homes: San Antonio foreclosure filings falling - try saying that 3 times fast - 02/24/14 11:48 PM

It’s getting harder and harder to get a deal on a foreclosure in the San Antonio metro. There are fewer foreclosed properties on the market every month in Bexar County, continuing a decline that began in the fall of 2012.
Because of demand outstripping supply, and the increase of home prices in San Antonio overall, asking prices are higher now, and they often receive multiple offers.
In March, 497 properties are scheduled for auction at the courthouse. This represents a 31% decrease from March of last year and 29% compared to the first quarter of 2013, according to research … (0 comments)

bexar county homes: They got to San Antonio as fast as they could - 10/05/13 12:22 AM
"I wasn't born here, but I got here as fast as I could."
That's an old saying about people moving to Texas. And it looks like people are still saying it, with Texas having seven of the top 20 cities for net in-migration in 2012. More people moved to the state in 2012 than moved out.
The San Antonio metro, comprising Bexar County, ranks fourth in the nation for net in-migration. A total of 5,601 new households were formed, according to the latest Texas Relocation Report published by the National Association of REALTORS and U-Haul. That’s nearly half the number of … (0 comments)

bexar county homes: For sale, ready for summer: 7259 Burns Way, San Antonio, TX 78250 - 05/23/13 12:16 AM
I have the pleasure of listing for sale this spacious home with a big covered deck, conveniently located in a quiet gated neighborhood on San Antonio's northwest side. I say "conveniently" because it is close to bustling Bandera Highway, with lots of shopping, dining, and services, halfway between Loop 410 and Loop 1604. But it's also "quiet," because the neighborhood is set well back off Mainland Drive. 
The large back yard has a privacy fence, a vegetable garden area, a storage shed, and shade trees. Best of all, the covered deck--just re-stained--will make a great place for some happy home buyers … (2 comments)

My clients are retiring and downsizing to a smaller home, so they have put their exquisitely maintained home on the market.  Over the last couple of years, they expanded the deck, added a pergola cover to the patio, and planted trees and drought-resistant flowering shrubs.

bexar county homes: How's the market in San Antonio, Texas? Let's look at the numbers - 02/20/13 05:03 AM
Homes in the San Antonio metro area increased their sales in both numbers and price last month from one year ago. There was a huge 24% increase in sales from January 2012, according to the San Antonio Board of REALTORS, with 1,249 homes selling during the month. The average and median sales prices also went up. Interest rates continued to stay at record low levels, which most likely helped spur loan applications and home sales. A gradually falling unemployment rate (5.7% in December) didn’t hurt either.
The average sales price for a single-family home in January rose to $183,846, a … (4 comments)

bexar county homes: Still going up: September home sales in San Antonio, Texas - 10/16/12 02:22 AM
The upward trend in sales of San Antonio residential real estate continued last month, with a 7% increase compared to September of 2011. Both average and median home prices rose by 2% from last year, too. The National Association of REALTORS® gives much of the credit to the Federal Reserve’s decision to buy mortgage-backed securities, which has had the effect of keeping interest rates at historic lows.
The number of homes and condos sold in the San Antonio metro increased all through 2012, with a total of 15,175 sold compared to the same time in 2011. A total of 1,683 homes … (1 comments)
