san antonio homes: Five things I am grateful for in my real estate business - 11/20/15 11:12 PM
The folks at Happy Grasshopper suggested a post about the five things I am grateful for, and it started me thinking.
My real estate career in San Antonio is a huge part of my life. (Some might say too much!) It's not a hobby or a side business, it's a calling. And it's not a numbers game, it's all about people. So my list of five things I am grateful for is actually a list of people I am grateful to and for.
First of all, I am grateful for two of my mentors: Pam and Rich O'Bryant. As experienced agents, they conducted … (6 comments)

san antonio homes: 5 extra things that help sell your home - 08/12/15 11:11 PM
Selling your home? Here are five “extra” things, three of which you can do that you might not have thought of. And two factors you have no control over, but that you (or your agent) could highlight in your marketing:
 
1.   Your “staged” front porch, patio, or deck
A park bench on the front porch evokes a sense of community. A bistro set on the patio or balcony makes buyers dream of sipping morning lattes or afternoon margaritas while enjoying the fresh air. If you have any outdoor space, it pays to show it off. Even if you don’t have any outdoor furniture, … (4 comments)

san antonio homes: The myth of the neighborhood expert - 06/18/15 10:36 PM
Many sellers think it's important to find an agent who is a neighborhood expert to list their home for sale in San Antonio. Agents who farm particular areas tend to encourage that belief.
But how important is it to be an expert on a particular neighborhood when listing a home for sale there?
Twenty years ago, agents were the go-to sources of information on neighborhoods because there were few ways to get it other than walking around talking to residents. Agents would farm the neighborhoods they lived in or near and could pride themselves on selling several houses in the same community. Buyers … (30 comments)

san antonio homes: Take that, math! I feel so much better now! - 03/07/15 11:53 PM
I started a new book yesterday: How We Learn, by Benedict Carey. As I was reading the introduction, I found out something that was immediately worth the price of the book. I could have stopped reading at that point and been happy—actually, I was overjoyed!
I found out that math fear is a real thing. I can add and multiply (my mom taught me the multiplication tables with flash cards while I was in elementary school), but I am terrible at subtraction, fractions, geometry, algebra, and long division. The only number I have memorized is 43,560*, and I am good enough … (10 comments)

san antonio homes: Happy 2015! A good year for home sales? - 01/03/15 11:53 PM
I heard on the radio last week that the real-estate market under-performed expectations in 2014. Then the same day I read that 2015 could see another bubble in the market.
It's all local; prices and activity in one city experiencing an overheated market would signify a slow, buyers' market in another.
In the San Antonio metro, 2014 was a good year for home sales. Traditionally, the city has not experienced the volatility of other markets in Texas, and this year was no different. According to figures from the San Antonio Board of REALTORS, the time on market never rose over 4.7 months, … (0 comments)

san antonio homes: Spacious home for sale in Cibolo or Schertz: 3108 Mason Creek 78108 - 08/05/14 10:59 PM
Why the confusion on whether this home is in Cibolo or Schertz? The two fast-growing cities in Texas (and the US) are side-by-side and share a top-rated school district. This home is located in Fairway Ridge in Schertz, but the mailing address is Cibolo, so its ZIP code is 78108.
Now, about the home itself: it has such spacious guest bedrooms with walk-in closets and an enormous game room you could practically live upstairs! One of the four bedrooms has been transformed into a media room (the sellers are willing to paint to turn it back into a bedroom).
Downstairs is … (1 comments)

san antonio homes: Significant six in San Antonio - 07/20/14 11:43 PM

The significant number for the sixth month of the year is 6, for San Antonio home sales at least.
The average sales price for a single-family home rose by 6 percent to a record high of $232,839 in June. Twelve months ago, the average price was $219,489, according to the June numbers from the San Antonio Board of Realtors.
The number of days on market was 65, about the same as in May, but a 12 percent drop from last June. A little over half the sales in San Antonio have been of homes priced under $200,000, while those … (1 comments)

san antonio homes: How much home can you afford in San Antonio? What do you want to pay? - 07/06/14 11:50 PM

 Yes, it is a seller’s market and home prices have been going up in San Antonio. But interest rates are still historically low. And those rates have more of an impact on what you can afford to buy than prices.
For example, if you’re looking for the average priced home in San Antonio, as of June 2014 it would be a little less than $225,000. How much would you pay each month with a 20% down payment to avoid paying private mortgage insurance on a 30-year fixed rate mortgage?
 
A mortgage of $180,000 at 4.25% equals a principal and … (1 comments)

This post was supposed to feature a Real Estate Show of a recently updated home on a large corner lot in the popular neighborhood of Woodlands of Camino Real, located on San Antonio's north-central side. 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! It is worth a little extra clicking to see this lovely home!

san antonio homes: Fiesta San Antonio is over. Start planning for next year! - 05/05/14 10:42 PM
San Antonio is known for the Alamo and its beautiful River Walk, which play starring roles in the annual Fiesta de San Antonio.
Fiesta brings people from near and far, both locals and tourists, to join in such events as Night in Old San Antonio, featuring food and drink from local eateries and artisan brewers; the crowning of El Rey Feo (the Ugly King) of the Order of the Alamo; and numerous parades, concerts, and block parties. The Battle of Flowers parade is the most famous, and I have vivid memories of marching in it every year when I was in … (1 comments)

san antonio homes: Sorry, San Antonio home buyers! It's not your market any more - 02/17/14 12:36 AM
Real estate sales are supposed to be slow right after the holidays. But just like the weather in South Texas, the real estate market has been unpredictable.
Home sales in 2013 came back to the same level as they were in 2006. And the total of 1,348 sales for the month of January was 7% more than one year ago. The average time on the market decreased by 16% from last year to 75 days.
Most important statistic: there were only 4.1 months of inventory of houses for sale in January.
This means there are fewer homes for sale, and prices … (0 comments)

san antonio 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)

san antonio 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)

san antonio homes: 99 - days, that is - 03/24/13 11:38 PM
At 4 percent less time than in February of 2012, San Antonio homes were on the market for an average of 99 days last month before going under contract. A total of 1,379 sold—a whopping 96 percent at the asking price. Home sales increased 8 percent from last year, according to the San Antonio Board of REALTORS.
Homes priced under $200,000 made up 66 percent of the total, those priced between $200,000 and $500,000 comprised 29 percent, and those over $500,000 were a little over 4 percent. That’s the highest percentage of homes sold in that price band since 2011. The … (1 comments)
