There are many great things about this place we call home. One thing we shouldn’t take for granted is a robust economy with a real estate market that has continually disputed national trends. In fact, many publications have been eager to call San Antonio one of the greatest post-recession cities in the country.
According to Forbes magazine, San Antonio ranks #4 on their list of the next U.S. boomtowns. If that’s not enough, the city ranks #1 in Miliken Institute’s Best Performing Cities Index. Texans are known for having pride in their state, and rightfully so, with these kinds of accolades.
In the most recently released local market report, San Antonio Board of Realtors (SABOR) announced that housing sales have jumped 4% from this time last year with the average price of a home coming in at $185,561. What’s remarkable is that these trends have continued for the last three consecutive months.
Thanks in part to San Antonio’s strong economic stability and an added boost from the thriving military presence, oil and gas resurgence, and exploration of biomedical science; this city is poised to remain atop of the real estate market forecast. This is excellent news for everyone who is lucky enough to reside in this community!
