The Hollywood Park Real Estate Market -- Sizzling or Fizzling this Summer?

Of those closed sales so far this year, the $$ per square foot have ranged from approximately $80 per square foot (for a huge 4700+ sf foreclosure) to approximately $129 per square foot for a seven year old garden home with less than 2000 sf.

Days on market for the sold homes ranged from 16 days on market to 344 days on market, with most under 100 days.  Sales prices ranged from $159,900 to $485,000, with six of the sales being over $300,000.

Loop 1604 / US Highway 281 Interchange is Under Construction Near Hollywood Park

Construction has begun by TXDOT on the long awaited interchange between the two major highways that border Hollywood Park.  Loop 1604 which encircles a large portion of San Antonio borders the Park on the north side, and US Highway 281 borders the Park on the east side.  While the actual interchange is about a mile away from the HP boundaries, the construction has and will continue to impact the traffic patterns in our area.

Once completed, the hope is that the volume of cut-through traffic seen on some of our Hollywood Park streets will be lessened if motorists have easier and faster ways to get from one highway to another.  Meanwhile, it looks like we have a year or two to look forward to traffic delays, detours, noise and dust!

55 Closed Sales in Hollywood Park in 2010!

 The real estate market in Hollywood Park in San Antonio was a strong market in 2010.  There were 55 closed sales, a number larger than 2009. 2008 amd 2007. 

Prices in the Park ranged from $136,500 to $501,000.  As a small township, Hollywood Park includes homes of all sizes - from around 1200 square feet to 6000 square feet +.  The homes range in age from approximately 60 years to approximately 2 years.  The lots range from garden home size lots to 2 acres.  And there's just as much of a range in the levels of upkeep and updating.  So in the Park, there's really no such thing as an "average" home, or average $$ per square foot.

The other good news in our Hollywood Park market is that the number of available homes has lessened from the high of 40 at one point in 2010, to just above 20 at the current time.  It remains to be seen what the rest of 2011 will bring, but there are already two homes that have closed, and two others that are pending at the moment.  So prospects look good for another strong year.
