Many communities here in San Antonio currently have new homes that are being built in the same neighborhood as pre owned homes. This is due to new "phases" of the communities constantly opening. When working with buyers that have not yet decided if they want to build or purchase a pre owned home we look at both. I go along with my clients to the builder model and walk the inventory homes currently available to get an idea of costs of the new home, then we look at the preowned homes. As far as price, I would have my clients look over the comparables and recently sold homes for the pre owned for market value. Then decide which path we are going to take. You can compare for pricepoint and budget purposes, but I would not recommend to compare the two together. Hope that helps!... more
I always recommend it to my clients so that they can get a sense of what may arise during a home buyer inspection. I've also found that every home inspector is different and what some make note of others may not. I had this happen recently on a listing. We had three deals fall apart and each one found different items in the inspection. If you are concerned about your home to begin with then it may be a good idea. Otherwise you can leave it alone and be prepared what may come down the road. I firmly believe that the less we give a buyer to gripe about the better off we will be. It can also save time down the road.
Good afternoon, Bill. That is a project being built by Birnbaum Property Company. It is a little less than 14,000 sqft. According to the site plan on their website, it will include a Pet's Barn pet supplies store, a dentist, a spa, and a "Love to Swim and Tumble School". Not sure if there's any other leasing in place.
A link to the pdf on their website is below.

HONESTY, HONESTY, HONESTY. Used car salesmen need not apply. I have worked with three different realtors and all of them were about the same thing: their wallets. I know what I can afford, what I want and where I want to live. I cannot stand an individual who thinks they know what is best for me, when they do not know who I am or what I am about. I know what I can afford and if you can't understand that, then BYE...... more
If only part of thiis information is correct, one would have to believe there are issues here.
Illegal? Based on your information, it's difficult to percieve what actually happened but without a doubt there appears to be sufficient information to contact the agent's broker/manager and present their concerns before taking it to the local board of realtors for their review and recommendation.
As always, if you feel that something illegal has taken place, you are always best advised to contact an attorney.
