San Antonio's Rockstar Turned Realtor®: Market Report for San Antonio 78255

Market Report for San Antonio 78255

San Antonio 78255

If you were hoping to see a decent price increase, look no further than 78255.  Unfortunately, that price increase also comes with a rise in inventory.  With a 70 home increase since August (about 35%), homes are hitting the shelves quicker than they are flying off.  Once again, the higher priced home market (just about anything above $200,000) is slow to move as buyers watch prices and are looking for deals.  Since there is also a lot of new construction in the area, consider this a trend that will stay for awhile.  This price increase is probably being caused by two things; new homes being built and older homes going on the market above market value - all pushing prices higher as builders and homeowners saw the late spring/early summer as a "hot market" and more wanted to take advantage of that fact.  I suspect we'll see a slowdown through the winter months that will adjust prices downward as inventory increases.

My friend, I have been told by several of my favorite bloggers here that I NEED to start posting info and stats for the neighborhoods where I specialize and now that you have jumped on board, I need to get off my tail and get busy. One small thing, the illustration in this particular post was a bit slow to load...maybe it's my computer but I wanted to let you know!

Pat - I don't know what use it will be to you in Dallas as they are localized statistics (by zip code here in San Antonio).

Sasha - No problem.

Russell - I think with your very specialized areas of concentration this could of great use to you.  I also notice the higher the price of the home, the more people like to see statistics.

Donna - I love that you can adjust the view to see historical data as well.
