The San Antonio housing market is setting records!

As of October 2016, over 2,500 homes were sold which is a 4.5 percent increase from this time last year.  The housing market in San Antonio is showing no signs of cooling down, and it is evident in the rising home prices that sellers have leverage over buyers. The median price of a home is up 2.4 percent from the median of $202,300 in 2016 and prices are predicted to continue to surge due to interest rates remaining low.

San Antonio Rent Is Affordable For Every Generation

If you have searched for an apartment in the past several years you know that rent is on the rise and not just in Central Texas but nationwide.

Today, a whopping 35% of American households are renters and about half of those renters are cost burdened and spending more than 30% of their income on housing. Since renting is no longer just for the younger generation, Abodo recently surveyed renters to better understand which generation is the most cost burdened.

Almost two-third of Millennials rent and 46% of them are cost burdened paying a median gross rent of $980 per month.  Although a lower percentage of boomers rent, almost half of them are cost burdened paying a median rent of $890 per month. Over 44% of Generation X  renters are cost burdened because of their expensive taste in apartments and paying $1,050 per month.

Lucky for San Antonio renters, most cities in Texas seem to fall below the national figures. Regardless of your generation, it is important that you have an expert on your side. Our agents at Apartments Now can help you find the perfect place to call home. Call us today at (210) 558-7377.

San Antonio Renters Are On The Move

A big perk of renting an apartment is flexibility and mobility.  More affordable homes, a better job, and lifestyle changes are all reasons that warrant a move out of the city or across state lines, according to many apartment dwellers.  

According to a recent survey by Apartment List, 55% of San Antonio renters revealed that they do plan on moving to a different city. The recent survey showed that renters would prefer to move to Houston if they were staying in Texas, or Colorado Springs if they were crossing state lines. For now San Antonians are satisfied with the rent rate and economic conditions in San Antonio and were not feeling the immediate urge to pack it all up and leave the city.  

Our licensed apartment locators are familiar with the city’s apartment rental inventory and can help save you time and money in your search. Give Apartments Now a call (210) 802-1112 and let us help you find the perfect apartment to call home!

This number is up from 50% in 2016 and 45% in 2015. Experts agree that the millennial generation has shown more of an interest in homeownership, which reflects in the shifting upward numbers.
