The weather isn’t the only thing that’s hot right now. So are sales of Homes in San Antonio. The San Antonio Board of Realtors’ data shows that, “Summer home sales are off to a sizzler of a start in San Antonio,” said KSAT. “In May, even before school let out, 3,133 existing homes were sold — an 11 percent increase over the same time one year ago,” they said. The median price for those homes was $219,700 — a 5 percent jump from the prior year.”
It’s a continuation of a trend from last year, in which “San Antonio’s housing market hit a new sales record in 2016 with 29,508 homes sold,” said the San Antonio Express-News. “A total of 29,508 homes were sold last year, an 8.2 percent increase from the 27,256 that were sold in 2015, according to data from the San Antonio Board of Realtors.”
Southside making an impact
Sales of homes in San Antonio, especially on the South Side, continue to impact the city’s real estate market, drawing from a large pool of buyers including those who grew up in the area and are encouraged by the area’s growth. In addition, “redevelopment of the San Antonio River's southern leg, and the designation of the Spanish colonial missions as UNESCO World Heritage sites, is bringing new attention,” said the Express-News in a new story about growth on the South Side.
Job hubs at Brooks City Base, Port San Antonio, and the future University of the Incarnate Word’s School of Osteopathic Medicine, and amenities like “improvements at Pearsall Park…which just received a major, $8.1 million face-lift” and now includes “the city’s largest skate park and the only fully contained 5K and 10K natural running courses” are attracting home buyers to masterplanned communities like “the growing Mission Del Lago community off U.S. 281 next to Mitchell Lake, where 800 single-family homes have been built and roughly another 1,200 are planned,” they said.
