As San Antonio’s red hot housing market continues to soar, the city is far outgrowing the nation and its Texas counterparts in new-home sales.

Pending sales of new-construction homes in February grew 61.8% in San Antonio from February 2020 to 2021, according to a new report from Zonda. The only two cities with larger year-over-year growth were Cincinnati at 72.8% and Jacksonville at 80.5%.

The number of new home orders in the Alamo City grew 39.1%, with the average sales rate up 60.8%, even through the unprecedented winter storm.

“It means that the market is way bigger than it was a year ago in housing activity,” said Jack Inselmann, San Antonio regional director for Zonda.
