August demonstrated a strong finish to the summer for San Antonio’s housing market, putting the total number of home sales this year at 24,745, a 5 percent increase over 2019 (January – August YTD total was 23,654). In August alone, there were 3,693 total home sales, a 7 percent increase over August 2019. Marching into September, pending sales were at 3,431, a great indication for this month’s outlook. The Multiple Listing Service Report, provided by the San Antonio Board of REALTORS® (SABOR), reports on all areas contained within the MLS.

“The newly released numbers show continued strength for our city and county. When compared to Travis, Harris, and Dallas Counties, Bexar County has shown the highest growth with 18,126 homes sold, a 6.2% increase year-to-date compared to last year’s numbers,” said Kim Bragman, SABOR’s 2020 Chairman of the Board. “New residents are moving into the area from other Texas counties and from out of state, and our REALTORS® are doing a great job showing all of the amazing features that San Antonio has to offer when it comes to home ownership.”
