Real estate in the San Antonio metro area, the foothills of the Texas Hill Country, and on the Guadalupe River. My market area includes the northern half of San Antonio (Alamo Heights, Fort Sam Houston, Shavano Park, Hollywood Park, and Stone Oak) and northeast (Randolph AFB, Universal City, Windcrest, Schertz, and Cibolo) to New Braunfels, Seguin, and Canyon Lake, including Bexar, Guadalupe, and Comal Counties. My blog also covers photography; houses and homes; investments and rental properties; pets and wildlife; birds, butterflies, and flowers in my organic garden; travel; fun stuff; and whatever else takes my fancy.

With the real estate market these days, even in San Antonio, it seems that no matter how nice your home is or how well priced, you might still get a lowball offer on it. Buyers are hoping to find a seller who is desperate to sell and will cut them a screaming deal. But if you're a seller on the r...
Home buying activity normally slows down during the winter holidays and starts to pick up again by early spring. The San Antonio metro hasn't been as volatile as many others, but it is not immune to the competition from foreclosures and short sales. If your home has been on the market since last ...
