Homes priced over $500,000 accounted for 5.4 percent of the month’s sales, 31 more homes than this time last year.
As the median priced homes continue to sell at a fast clip it shows that as prices have begun to rise across San Antonio, demand among buyers hasn't gone down. This is a good sign for both buyers and sellers that home values are gaining across the region and people can afford to purchase these homes.
The average sales price of a home in July was $257,540, a moderate four percent increase from last year while the median inched up three percent year-over-year to $218,800. The price per square foot of a home rose five percent to $117 and days on market plummeted 11 percent to just 49 days. Months of inventory increased 0.1 months from June to 3.9 months in July.
