As a recipient of U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) federal funding, the City funds Owner Occupied Rehabilitation and Reconstruction (OOR) Program activities, which are aimed at rehabilitating substandard single-family structures of low and moderate income homeowners throughout the City.

The Neighborhood and Housing Services Department (NHSD) is proposing to utilize qualified real estate professionals who will conduct a Comparative Market Analysis on each subject property to include the proposed rehabilitation scope of work to be completed under the OOR Program. This analysis will help NHSD to meet program and federal regulation requirements for the OOR Program activities.

The Finance Department, Purchasing Division on behalf of NHSD, released a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) on October 23, 2020 to select a consultant to perform real estate professional services. The RFQ was advertised in the San Antonio Express-News, TVSA channel, the City's Bidding & Contracting Opportunities website, the San Antonio e-Procurement System (SAEPS)...
