Cash real estate buyers in greater San Antonio are reporting a significant uptick in activity post-Covid as more homeowners are realizing the benefits of conducting real estate transactions in this manner.
While cash buyers have always made up a portion of real estate transactions, albeit a small one, their market share is growing in recent years due to economic conditions and rising real estate fees associated with selling real estate in southern Texas and around the country.
“We’ve been experiencing this uptick in activity, really ever since Covid-19 restrictions were lifted in the San Antonio metropolitan area,” says Will Pritchard, owner of Home Again San Antonio. “Our buying opportunities thus far in 2023 are much more than they were even a year or two ago. We expect this will continue as cash buyers become a larger percentage of the overall market share for San Antonio area real estate.”
While the majority of real estate transactions in southern Texas continue to be handled through a licensed real estate agent, more home buyers are beginning to turn to cash buyers as a way to streamline the home selling process.
Saving real estate commissions is a major consideration for these types of buyers, but it’s not the only one. Selling quickly and easily via a cash buyer also avoids the need for holding open houses and multiple showings, while also alleviating the need for staging your home or even having to hire a photographer and/or videographer to showcase the property for marketing purposes.
With the San Antonio real estate market continuing to appreciate, home sellers can save a significant amount of money in fees and commissions by bypassing a Realtor altogether and instead contacting a reputable cash buyer in the local market.
“For years, individuals in our business were held back due to bad publicity and often unfair connotations that were associated with cash real estate buyers,” says Pritchard. “But through the hard work of many of us, most of that has been dealt with and alleviated in recent years.
“I think what we’re experiencing over the last few months is a direct result of the work we’ve done over the years to overcome this previously bad reputation in the industry. What we do is offer homeowners a fair price for their properties and a way to complete the transaction in a fast, easy and mutually beneficial way.”
