The new year is finally here, and many homeowners who put off selling last year are ready to make a move in 2021. Reasons for selling vary, but according to a recent survey by the National Association of REALTORS®, the most common reasons sellers cited were the desire to move closer to friends and family; the house was too small, and a change in the family situation. If you plan to put your house on the market this year, there is good news. Despite the pandemic, home sales in San Antonio and the surrounding areas have continued to increase. The November housing trends report from the San Antonio Board of REALTORS®, the most recent available, revealed that more than 3,000 homes were sold that month in San Antonio and surrounding areas. That’s a 27 percent increase over November 2019. The median home price rose 13 percent to $260,900. On average, houses in this area were on the market for 49 days. In November 2019, the average days on market was 60. SABOR will release market statistics for December in a couple of weeks. All of this means it’s a good time to sell a house in San Antonio. SABOR’s new Chairman of the Board, Cher Miculka, believes this trend will continue in 2021. Miculka, who is also a certified real estate instructor, has been in the industry since 1986. She has worn many hats throughout her career, including REALTOR®, broker, property adjuster, loan officer, and home-building operations manager.
