REAL ESTATE SALES TREND ON ITS WAY BACK UP – KERR COUNTY, TEXAS

KerrCountySalesJanApr

Sales in Kerr County are finally on their way back up. The total real estate market is only at 52% of the market height in 2007 but is up 11% from last year. The average sales price increased slightly from $181,742 to $183,095.

It is our feeling that the market has not recovered as much as in adjoining Kendall County because there have been fewer “deeply discounted” properties. With so much on the market, buyers are looking for “deals.” If a property doesn’t “shine” next to its competition and truly feel like a “deal,” savvy buyers will pass for the next more appealing property. The moral: Property pricing is more important than ever!

Regardless, we are encouraged by the turn in the trend. We’d love to talk with you about YOUR real estate needs. Give us a call at 830-995-2511.

Four Star – Camp Verde General Store – Great Outing in the Hill Country

cypress cafe 002Campe Verde General Store is this weeks  featured hot spot !  Charming, rich with history and taste PLUS you will find the store pleasantly affordable as well. The gift shop has a cozy feel with many interesting and fun items to purchase. 2 stories of  everything from art pieces , jewelery, dishes, to homemade cookies.

If in all the wonder you start to work up an appetite, count yourself  in luck because you’ve saved the best for last … The Camp Verde Cafe .  The food always makes a lasting impression with every thing on the menu under $7 …  always fresh and delicious.

My personal favorite is the “Ooh La La!”   Grilled roast beef, Swiss cheese, grilled onions and garlic mayo on ciabatta bread with au jus ($4.75).

cypress cafe 006 After your meal, take a walk across the street to the park where you can enjoy wonderful Verde Creek (one of the nicest creeks in the Hill Country) or just enjoy the elements sitting at the picnic table with friends.  Perhaps a game of  dominoes?  Check back soon for more Hill Country hot spots and things to do!cypress cafe 003

KERR COUNTY REAL ESTATE SALES ARE STILL SLOW – January to September 2010

Year to date (January to September) real estate sales are down for 2010 … $7 million from 2009 and a whopping $60 million from 2007.

JanSeptKerrCoSales

SeptKerrCoSales

September sales were just about even from last year providing some hope that sales decreases may have begun to “bottom out.”

There are SOOO many properties on the market right now providing year end opportunities for investors with cash and home buyers “READY” to move.  We’d love to help you find what YOU are looking for. Give us a call at 830-995-2511.

SLIGHT INCREASE IN REAL ESTATE SALES IN KERR COUNTY FOR FIRST 5 MONTHS OF THE YEAR

So far this year, Real Estate sales in Kerr County are slightly up from last year; however, way down from 2008.  Total sales in Kerr County for January to May 2010 totaled $33.8 Million.  There were 186 sales.

JanMaySalesKerrThe average home price in 2008 was $220,921; in 2009, it was $223,123, and in 2010, it was $199,996.  Those figures, in our opinion, represent what we have been seeing happen.  In 2008, sales were still strong and prices were at their height.  In 2009, sales were off, but prices were not coming down like one would expect.  During 2010, prices are definitely lower.  We have been telling our clients that prices are down by about 10%.  These figures substantiate that information.

We feel like it is a really good time to buy.  Prices are down and interest rates are still low.  If you have been sitting on the sidelines waiting for the right time, now is the time to jump in!  Give us a call. We’d love to help you find what YOU are looking for.

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.
