KENDALL COUNTY REAL ESTATE SALES SHOWING IMPROVEMENT – JAN-APR (2007-2011)

KC

Residential Real Estate Sales for the first 4 months of 2011 improved slightly over last year. 84 Sales vs. 81 last year. Also showing improvement was average sales price which increased from $314,055 to $319,152.

KC1

2007 was the height of the market.  The market is currently down about 40% from that point.  Sales are taking more than twice the time to sell and are selling at a deeper discount from original list price than that time period.

KC2

KC3

KC4

Thankfully, the sales curve is finally on an upswing. We have noticed that the number of distressed properties are decreasing. Inventory, however, is increasing daily.

It will be interesting to see how this year plays out … whether sales will grow stronger and eat up the inventory or whether inventory will not be absorbed and a “glut” by year end will create more distress situations.  We remain optimistic … but are ever watching the market to stay abreast of the situation.  For all of your real estate needs, give us a call.

Comfort Wines are BIG winners!!

The 2010 Houston Livestock and Rodeo International Wine Competition has awarded Comfort’s own Singing Water Vineyard a Gold Medal for it’s 2009 Merlot.  The 2008 Texas Reserve, 2009 Pinot Grigio and their newest addition, the 2008 Freedom, all took home Silver medals.

JANUARY TO SEPTEMBER SALES UP IN COMFORT, TEXAS

Increases in sales of Farm and Ranch and Lots/Acreage provided the stimulus for total real estate sales increases in Comfort, Texas so far this year. Looks like hill country land is coming back in vogue again!

On the other hand, residential sales are down so far this year. As I quickly look through the residential sales so far in 2010 (14 so far compared to 16 last year during the same time period), I am reminded that many of them were at deep discounts from original list price. The average list price to sales price ratio was 88.4%

ComfortJantoJune0910As for the outlook for THE ENTIRE HILL COUNTRY for the balance of the year, here are some things to consider:

Tax rates are set to increase next year. Current land owners: This year may be an opportune time to realize gains on real estate at lower tax rates.

There is currently a “glut” of residential properties on the market.  Since there is so much competition, homes that are “average” just aren’t selling.  Prices are being reduced time and time again in order to get market attention. As such, we believe that by end of year there will be some great “buys” on homes that need a little TLC.

We’d love to serve you whatever your real estate needs are.  We work from Leon Springs to Mountain Home, Bandera to Johnson City.  Give us a call!

BOERNE SALES UP FOR JUNE, SLIGHTLY DOWN FOR JULY

Boerne Real Estate Sales are up for the Summer so far.  Total Sales for June & July were $29.9 million as compared with $25.7 last year during the same period.

JuneJulyBoerneThe number of total sales for June & July was up by 7; however, days on market increased  from 138 to 200 from July, 2008 to July, 2009 reflecting increased inventories.  Pending sales as of August 3, 2009, total just over $11.2 million.

We watch the Boerne market daily.  If you have something specific that you are interested, we’d love to help you find what you are looking for.

Recently, we were contacted by a gentlemen.  He had previously been in contact with a listing agent on a property, tried to make an offer, but did not get the property as there were competing bids.   The moral of the story (as he found out) is that Buyers need their own representation.  It eliminates conflicts of interest and it provides you, the buyer, with the best market information possible.

Our goal is to EXCEED YOUR EXPECTATIONS BY GIVING YOU ABOVE & BEYOND SERVICE.

We’d love to visit with you.  Call us at 830-995-2511.
