Helotes is between San Antonio and the Hill Country if you use State
Highway 16. The city of Helotes is a little over four square miles and
the 2010 census had the population at between 7,500 and 8,000 people.
The area is served by the Northside Independent School District, which is the largest district serving the region. School assignments based on the home address of the student. Currently four elementary schools serve the area: Helotes, Beard, Kuentz, and Los Reyes. Middle schools are Stinson, with Stevenson and Garcia Middle Schools. High schools for the area are Brandeis and O’Connor. Always verify school assignments with the district. School boundaries do change as population shifts occur.
Helotes has been a growth area for the region and real estate sales have been steady. One means of measuring real estate activity is by using what is called the absorption rate. Based on recent sales if you divide the number of homes sold by the number of homes available-how many months elapse before the supply of homes is diminished.
So based on recent sales, there’s a bit more than six months inventory in Helotes. However, there are several new home communities with construction not yet shown on the MLS. My estimate boosts the inventory to about nine months inventory. This is good news for Buyers that will have a number of options from which to select. Seller’s will have
to adjust pricing strategies to accommodate the new trend if they intend to get their property sold.
As I checked the MLS this afternoon for available properties in Helotes TX I found the following:
|Type||Number Available||Low Price||High Price|
|Single Family Detached||258||$120,000||$1,800,000|
The zip code for Helotes is 78023, however every address in this zip code is not within the city limits of Helotes. Some with a Helotes mailing address actually live in San Antonio, or unincorporated areas of Bexar County. Just so you know.
Helotes has mature neighborhoods like Cedar Springs and Braunridge as well as newer communities such as Triana and Sonoma Mesa. There are platted lots in subdivisions and lots in the hills of the area. Call me if I can help you find your place either buying or selling in Helotes or the greater San Antonio area.
