Strong San Antonio Summer in Real Estate

15926 Sight Scape LVRSan Antonio – According to the June 2015 Multiple Listing Report by the San Antonio Board of REALTORS® (SABOR), home sales saw their biggest increase yet this year in June with 2,925 homes sold. This is an 18 percent increase from the same month in 2014 and the largest number of sales in a single month this year. While both the average and median sales prices dropped marginally from May, both saw increases from last year.

June’s average sales price rose five percent to $242,588 and the median price edged up six percent to $200,900.The average sales price has remained over $200,000 since February 2014 while the median has maintained that level since May 2015. “Our market has been favorable to sellers this year as prices keep growing and length of time to sell a home continues to shrink,” said Mary Ann Jeffers, SABOR’s 2015 Chairman of the Board. “In June, homes sold for 97.8 percent of list price and price per square foot shot up to $108, a four percent increase from last year. It’s a prime market for sellers.” Many sellers are jumping into the market as low inventory often creates faster sales and higher home prices in many areas.

15926 Sight Scape -bdrmAccording to Fannie Mae’s recent National Housing Survey, 52 percent of Americans surveyed believe now is a good time to sell, the first time this metric has risen above 50 percent. In June, 3,875 new listings came on the San Antonio market, nearly 18 percent more than this time last year, and the month ended with 2,381 sales still pending. Days on market in San Antonio continue to fall with June reporting just 52 days, a 21 percent drop from June 2014, and months of inventory remains steady at 4.0 months.

While the market is tight for buyers, they are still finding homes to meet their needs. In June, homes priced below $200,000 continued to make up the majority of sales in the San Antonio market with 49.74 percent of homes sold priced in this bracket. Homes selling over $500,000 continued to climb with June reporting 5.88 percent in this range. Of those, most were priced between $500,000 and $600,000 with a total of 12 homes sold over one million dollars. Homes priced between $200,000 and $500,000 accounted for 44.41 percent of the month’s sales. “As the number of new listings continues to surge, buyers still have options when it comes to finding their dream home,” said Angela Shields, SABOR’s President and CEO. “We expect to see our housing market remain strong as buyers continue to see the value of investing in homeownership.”

New Boerne Location

01_Front ExteriorNow that the big move is over, we visited with Amy Thibodeaux, the Vice President of Residential Sales for the Boerne office, and the entire team at a sales meeting at their new location on River Road.

“I want CBDHR to make a positive footprint here in Boerne. . . We want to be here in many capacities, Community Service, as well as Real Estate.”

Rachelle Lozano, the Director of Marketing, was on-site with a member of her team to talk about the benefits of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS Powerhouse Marketing. In addition, Lozano welcomed feedback from the Sales Associates about working in Boerne and some of the challenges they faced in the world of real estate.

11402997_918863918175216_9144197488158877731_nTaking a tour of the beautiful new office, we were able to snap a few photos highlighting the comforts of their new home. Having a sense of comfort and inviting clients to enjoy a beautiful new office with us is just part of the reason so much effort is put into the decor. D’Ann Harper herself custom designed this building and selected the adornments within. The result is a place our team members are proud to call home.

Away from the construction and in a wonderful location off Main and just a short drive down River Road, the office is close by some well-known thoroughfare. This location is easy to navigate to and very welcoming. The Dodging Duck and Little Gretel are both wonderful local restaurants where some of the Sales Associates visit with friends or offer lunch meetings with clients.

IMG_2366One of the Boerne Sales Associates, Lisa Stanley, loves to help people reach their dreams. Her real estate business is about building relationships during and after the transaction. This is aligned with the belief at Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® that we’re family and finding that right home is the single most important purchase one can make in their adult lifetime. Stanley does not see herself as a salesperson, but someone who loves to help people reach their dreams.

CBechara_640415Claudia Bechara – NE

I decided to become a Realtor after being frustrated with so many Realtor’s out there, not listening to my needs, not responding or even giving me the time of the day. So I decided that I want so much more for my Clients, to put their needs first and listening and understanding exactly what they are going through. Helping others has always been my motivation in life and I’m making that my number one goal.

I immigrated from Germany to the USA in 1990, got married and raised my wonderful children. While living in Germany I played professional soccer and got my degree in sales and business. Here in the US I coached Varsity soccer in a private catholic school in California.After my divorce in 2012, I decided to start fresh and moved to San Antonio, a city, I became to love and make it my new home.

Joining Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® was the best decision in my new career path. Working with them gives me a sense family. They are unmatched when it comes to Marketing, Technology and dealing with people face to face, this is what matters most, how I treat my customers and they can trust in me and the name I proudly present on my badge.
