2021 has started off with quite a bang for the San Antonio housing market!

Homes sales in January jumped another 22% year-on-year, following a 17% increase in 2020.

Despite 2,878 new listings in January, active listings dropped 73.9% across the region. Housing inventory fell 1.3 months to a record-low 0.4 months of inventory, as homes spent an average of 33 days on market—literally half of what it was in 2020.
