July 23, 2015    By: mramirez

Realtor.com recently named San Antonio #19 on their list of the 20 Hottest Real Estate Markets in the U.S. for June 2015. It’s a clear indicator of how healthy the San Antonio market has been in the last few years. All signs in the real estate industry are pointing to a complete recovery from the slight decline that came with the Recession. The diversified economy is one of the main contributing factors for the market’s stability and growing demand.


Stability and Demand Are Increasing Prices


This new Realtor.com report echoes the expert opinions that were given at the end of 2015 – that San Antonio is one of the most stable markets in the country and poised for a busy year. Based on the Multi-Indicator Market Index® San Antonio was the most stable market going into 2015.


Like Austin and Houston, home prices have been on the rise in San Antonio. This is partly due to the strong jobs market and an increase in demand that is lowering the time homes spend on the market. Prices are expected to rise throughout 2015, but they won’t be as steep as the last few years.
