January 2015 San Antonio Home Sales Report

This January 2015 San Antonio Home Sales Report is from the sanantoniohomequest.com website.


Calendar year 2014 saw the most active San Antonio area resale and new home sales activity since the benchmark 2006 sales year.  

2014's impact was impressive.  Compared to 2013, closed single family home sales increased 4.23% (from 23502 to 24541), average list price increased 4.72% (from $215,075 to $225,729), and average sales price increased 4.92% (from $208,040 to $218,805).  The area ended the year with the lowest inventory of available homes for sale seen in the last decade.

Throughout last year, the nation's leading realty market analysts consistently ranked San Antonio as having one of the United States most successful residential realty markets.

Why?

The reason is easy to see. Since the end of the Great Recession, the entire San Antonio metropolitan area has evolved into an economic powerhouse driven primarily by the rapidly petroleum sector associated the nearby Eagle Ford shale oil field.  Other contributing factors are the area's well funded local government and Federal service components,  combined with the financial impact of having a large Federal service enterprise, a growing retiree community, thriving service industries, plus dynamic educational, medical, financial, tourism, and service industries.

Now, entering 2015, there is the possibility of a significant change in the area's economic circumstances.  Gas and oil field development and the refinery and sale of petroleum products have traditionally been the most significant industries contributing to the state's economic success. Although good for America's motoring public, the recent collapse of crude oil and gas prices might bode ill for Texas' most significant industries.  Economists are watching the situation warily, cautioning a wait and see attitude regarding the long term impact of low petroleum prices on both San Antonio, specifically, and the state in general.

In the face of uncertainty, what does the future hold for San Antonio's home sales in the next 4 months?  Will the market remain as active as in 2014, or pull back under threat of potentially less favorable economic conditions?

Here is the most likely short term answer.

Home sales will remain strong because San Antonio's economy has become highly diversified and, therefore, less reliant on the petroleum industry.

The inventory of newly constructed and resale homes will remain critically low.

Newly constructed and well prepared resale homes will sell quickly.

The market will favor sellers over buyers.

Home prices will likely increase, probably falling within San Antonio's typical 2% to 3% range as opposed to 2014's 5% increase.

As often pointed out in this column, home buyers should take heart in knowing that, historically, San Antonio has a consistent record of moderate but steady home value appreciation and residential sales market stability.  Also, San Antonio area homes are still very affordable when compared to homes in the nation's other large metropolitian markets.

March 2014 San Antonio Home Sales Report

If you're considering buying or selling a San Antonio metropolitan area home this year, keep this in mind.

In March 2014, there are too few new and resale homes on the market and there are too many buyers looking for a home to buy.  Consequently, competition for available homes is keen, home prices are rising, and home sellers have the advantage over buyers when it comes to negotiating the price, terms, and conditions for selling their homes.

But, there are changes in the wind.

Although, for the time being, the market favors sellers over buyers, there are signs that there is a correction underway.

Why?

A major factor is the fact that more San Antonio area residents feel they can afford to sell their homes because, due to rapidly rising home values, home owners are now in a positive equity situation (meaning they owe significantly less on their mortgages their their homes are worth).  

Another factor is simply market timing.  March and April are strong home sales months in the San Antonio area.

So, during the first week of March, new listings have increased dramatically and the supply of available homes is gradually but steadily creeping upward.  If the trend continues, the average home seller's advantage will likely weaken as the home sales market  becomes balanced.

The bottom line is this.

Following on the heals of the highly successful 2013 home sales year, San Antonio has all of the right economic conditions for a vibrant spring and summer 2014 residential sales market.
 
The nearby Eagle Ford Shale oil/gas boom is a highly significant factor, especially for home sales in the neighborhoods nearest the oil and gas fields south of San Antonio and Bexar County.

Also, San Antonio homes remain highly affordable and mortgage interest rates are exceptionally low for well qualified home buyers.

In summary, here is our advice for buyers and sellers in this March’s San Antonio home sales market. Don't delay. Act now to take advantage of this month's strong market.

A Two Month Supply Of Available Houses In San Antonio


A few weeks back, we predicted that San Antonio's inventory of available homes for sale could soon fall into the two months range.  Briefly, last week, the supply of San Antonio homes on the market and not already under contract fell to 2.99 months.   That's not a lot of houses for buyers to select from in a metropolitan area as large as San Antonio.

Will the low home supply last?  It remains to be seen, but it could happen because an unusually small number of new listings are coming on the market for this time of the year.

The continuing  imbalance between San Antonio's inventory of available homes and the number of buyers looking for San Antonio homes for sale means the area's late winter/early spring residential market will strongly favor home sellers and the most attractive homes will sell very quickly.

Consequently, San Antonio buyers looking to purchase a new or resale home this year are strongly advised not to delay their search much longer because, by summer 2014, home prices in the San Antonio area are likely to be 10 or more percent higher than in 2013.
