Inventory remains low while prices continue to climb in San Antonio, according to figures in the March 2015 Multiple Listing Report by the San Antonio Board of REALTORS® (SABOR). Months of inventory remained consistent with previous months with March reporting just 3.6 months. Total sales for the first quarter rose 12% from the same quarter in 2014 for a total of 5,327 homes sold while average and median prices increased by 8% and 9% respectively.
“For several months now we have seen our inventory remain under four months and days on the market continue to decrease,” said Mary Ann Jeffers, SABOR’s 2015 Chairman of the Board. “Anyone looking to buy should be prepared to move fast. Getting pre-approved and working with a REALTOR® can make the difference when navigating such a competitive market.”
